Case Study: First User Experience
How does it feel to have a hearing loss for over 30 years with your first hearing aid being the Phonak Marvel?
Sally had a profound hearing loss in her left ear and some hearing in her right ear. This presents a challenge for the expert audiologist.
Sally thought she had no hearing at all in her left ear - it was quite a challenge even to test it.
The first challenge for Sally was clearly coming to terms with her silent world bursting with sound. The audiologist initially kept the settings at about 80% of what they may eventually be. This gave Sally the chance to adjust to a different hearing experience.
Sally immediately started talking softer than she normally would. Conversations especially around the house were very different. Instead of being face to face and partially lip reading (by habit), conversations could be had in different rooms at a normal speaking voice.
For the first time Sally could use a mobile phone to navigate from Brisbane Airport to home on the Gold Coast. Conversations at work are so much easier.
Streaming Youtube videos directly into her hearing aids has made online life an absolute pleasure. The hearing aids are specially designed to handle streaming effectively. There are no batteries to deal with and everything becomes quite intuitive.
Sally is loving her new life as are her family.
Adjustments: It is important to use an audiologist with experience with both the hearing aid and technology. Sally found some of the sounds almost overwhelming. The audiologist was able to tweak the noise reduction settings to make backgound noise so much easier to tolerate.
Evolution of Phonak Audeo M (Marvel) Hearing Aid
In 2014 the first made for iPhone hearing aid was released. This allowed people to pair their hearing aids with their iPhone to stream music and phone calls. This has been an incredibly popular feature ever since.
In 2016 the first really reliable rechargeable hearing aids were released powered by lithium-ion batteries. So at this point we had good rechargeable hearing aids and we had good made for iPhone hearing aids. Nothing that did both really well. And nothing that would connect directly with anything other than Apple products.
In 2017 Phonak released the first hearing aid to stream directly to not just iPhones, but virtually all mobile phones. But it was not rechargeable and had some issues.
So finally at the end of 2018 and Phonak releases the Marvel. It ties all these things together connects to pretty much all phones and is powered by a lithium-ion battery.
In early 2018 we saw the release of the first made for iPhone hearing aid that was also powered by lithium-ion rechargeable batteries. So we finally had a good made for iPhone hearing aid, with a reliable rechargeable battery, but nothing that was direct to Android phones or all the other phones on the market. So finally at the end of 2018 and Phonak releases the Marvel. It ties all these things together connects to pretty much all phones and is powered by a lithium-ion battery.
So Marvel gets you the widest connectivity to your devices. The best rechargeable battery technology, no sacrifices in sound performance, and this is why it's such a popular hearing aid.
