Features & Benefits
Phonak Sky Q offers the most complete set of advanced features in a pediatric portfolio of hearing aids. SoundRecover along with the Binaural VoiceStream Technology™ allow improved hearing in a broad range of situations.
DuoPhone improves the signal-to-noise ratio and therefore increases understanding of a telephone conversation. As soon as a telephone conversation starts, the telephone signal is not only amplified, it is also streamed using Binaural VoiceStream Technology™ to the other hearing aid, so that the caller‘s voice is heard in both ears.
Speech in Wind
Speech in Wind is a binaural feature that significantly increases speech understanding and listening comfort in situations where wind noise affects one ear more than the other. In an asymmetric situation, the signal from the better side is streamed to the affected side using Phonak Binaural VoiceStream Technology™. By leaving frequencies above 1500 Hz untouched, Speech in Wind ensures speech intelligibility and comfort, while maintaining spatial cues needed for localization. Speech in Wind is available as a manual program.
StereoZoom improves the SNR by an additional 2.5 dB over sophisticated monaural directional microphone technology leading to an increased speech understanding in loud environments. It is the industry‘s only binaural four-microphone directional system which is now automatically activated within SoundFlow. Once a situation is classified as “speech in loud noise”, StereoZoom is automatically activated and the width of the beamformer is narrowed. This reduces environmental noise and focuses on a single voice in the crowd.
SoundRecover adds clarity and consistent exposure to high frequency speech sounds, ensuring natural sound quality and improved speech understanding. SoundRecover can be used for all hearing losses and the amount of frequency compression applied is directly proportional to the hearing loss.
Phonak Sky Q offers tamperproof solutions for the battery door, ear hook and integrated Roger receiver.
These solutions must be attached for children younger than 36 months to prevent accidental swallowing of the battery or small parts and complies to the newest IEC standards.
All Phonak Sky Q models are water resistant and dust tight, reaching IP67 according to IEC standards. This allows kids to enjoy a variety of water sports and activities without compromising their hearing aids.
Listening needs of children are different from adults and evolve with age. This is why Phonak offers an improved Junior mode in Phonak TargetTM. This evidence-based, customizable pediatric fitting software aims to make pediatric fitting more accurate and efficient than ever before. An age-based, one-click pediatric configuration for 0-3, 4-8, 9-12, and 13-18 years delivers the appropriate default setting.
At the heart of Phonak Quest is the Binaural VoiceStream Technology™. Unique features based on this technology are now available in four performance levels. In addition a range of comfort and audibility features result in a best in class offering.
