Phonak Hearing Aids

The Phonak Alpina brand, a leader in the development of wireless communication, produced their first portable audio devices in 1950. Visaton Super, which integrated hearing aids with a pair of glasses, was the beginning of a long string of innovations 1967, leading to the production of the world’s first BTE (behind-the-ear) hearing aid (Phonette) in 1970, and the audio input that established the foundation for FM devices in 1979.

PICS, the first digitally programmed hearing aid with an analogue processor, the AudioZoom multi-microphone concept, and MicroLink, the first tiny FM receiver, were released by Phonak in 1992, 1994, and 1996.

1999 saw the development and production of the first digital hearing system with FM receiver released, followed by the tiny MLx ear-level FM receiver hearing system the next year and SmartLink (Bluetooth integration technology) in 2003.

After the development of water-resistant housings in 2008, Phonak integrated the material with nano-digital technology in order to develop the world’s only extended wear hearing product.
