Powerful, rich sound
Phonak Marvel hearing aids recognize and automatically adapt to precisely match more listening situations than ever before. With AutoSense OS 3.0 and Binaural VoiceStream Technology, you can enjoy better speech understanding in noise as well as less listening effort and better memory recall in noise.
Phonak Virto M have Biometric Calibration. Engineered to provide better hearing performance, customised specifically for your individual ear and ear shape.
Each ear is unique, each ear hears differently. Each and every person is individual. Even our left ear differs from our right. The distinctive characteristics of our ear anatomy has an influence on how sound is captured, directed towards the ear drum and converted into information that the brain can understand.
The Phonak proprietary hearing aid modelling software measures and analyses the unique characteristics of your individual ear anatomy. It identifies over 1600 biometric data points, then calculates the unique calibration settings for each Virto M hearing aid.
Saved into the hearing aid memory, these calibration settings ensure increased accuracy and precision. In this way, Phonak Virto M is able to more reliably sense where sound is coming from, thereby giving you access to better hearing performance.

AutoSense OS analyzes the sounds around you every 0.4 seconds. It can identify whether you’re in a noisy restaurant, car, concert hall or at home. It draws upon multiple features, blending them to create over 200 distinct settings to precisely match your sound environment. The result – unmatched hearing performance and sound quality.
Below is a breakdown of some of the more important features available in Virto M, followed by a Features Breakdown at the various technology levels.

To take advantage of all the features available in Virto M means buying the premium product, the M90. For some there will be no option but to do that. However not every client needs all the features that are available to reach the required result.
We always advise that the best product for our clients is the level of technology that matches your lifestyle and expectations. Sometimes the best product can be the premium level. Sometimes the best product that most closely matches your needs is a mid range technology for instance.
