The Phonak Marvel 2.0’s sound quality is what you can expect from a premium hearing aid. Phonak describes it as “a clear, rich sound experience”, and our experience confirms this.
AutoSense OS 3.0
Phonak’s proprietary technology allows for an automatic device that recognizes and automatically adapts to more listening environments than ever before. It can automatically classify speech and music for enhanced listening experience.
Binaural VoiceStream Technology
This feature allows the Marvel to stream audio in real-time to both hearing aids. Itt also enables programs and features such as speech in loud noise, speech in 360, and and DuoPhone.
Speech in Noise
As part of the AutoSense OS 3.0, the Marvel 2.0 adapts and reduces noise from behind in real time and applies and optimizes the signal-to-noise ratio in noisy environments.
Comfort in Noise
Supplementary to the above, Comfort in Noise actively reduces noise for increased comfort when no speech is present.
Speech in Loud Noise
Speech in Loud Noise zooms in on a single voice in a diffuse noisy environment, helping to improve speech intelligibility. StereoZoom adapts to moving and asymmetric noise sources.
Speech in Car
This feature reduces broadband noise in the car to create a stable listening environment for easy communication and reduced listening effort.
Wireless Technology Integration
Unique to the Marvel 2.0, direct to Android and iPhone audio streaming is now a possibility. Also with the latest firmware release, the Marvel hearing aid will be compatible with Roger devices without the need for an external receiver.
Marvel can connect directly to either iOS or Android smartphones or other Bluetooth enabled devices to stream any kind of audio. It enables true hands-free phone calls and even audible phone notifications can be set to hear through the hearing aids. Marvel also delivers stereo sound quality streaming for music, videos, e-books, podcasts and more.
As a break-through in hearing technology, Marvel hearing aids feature RogerDirect which allows the Roger technology to stream directly to Marvel hearing aids without having to attach an external receiver. This major innovation makes Roger technology easier to use and more attractive for a broader group ranging from mild to profound hearing loss. Roger technology makes use of intelligent and adaptive algorithms that continuously measure and precisely analyze noise levels to keep the Roger signal clearly audible above the background noise.
Innovation In Design
The Marvel 2.0 comes in a new yet familiar shape. At a glance you may recognize that it’s a Phonak, and yet Phonak has managed to make it more visually pleasing. The Marvel comes in a variety of colors to match your skin-tone or hair color.
