Phonak Virto Marvel Black and Roger On
In January 2020, Virto Black made its debut at the world-renowned CES 2020 in Las Vegas and was also voted “Best of the Best” by the editors of Engadget in the Accessible Tech category. Engadget, a leading consumer technology publication, recognized that Virto Black blurred the lines between a hearing aid and an earbud. Its stigma-busting yet stylish design was intended to help people seek treatment sooner while boasting innovative hearing technology that could meet the needs of even severe forms of hearing loss.
Debuting in Summer 2021, Phonak Roger On received the “Red Dot” award for its high design quality. Teenagers and adults who wear hearing aids or cochlear implants can still struggle to understand and communicate in noisy situations and over distance. The new Roger On remote microphone will feature enhanced technology and an improved pointing mode that allows the user to zoom in on a speaker by simply pointing, making it easier to have meaningful conversations.
