Phonak Hearing Aids
The first portable audio devices were released under the Phonak Alpina brand in 1950. Their seventy year foundation of knowledge and experience has made Phonak a leader in the development of wireless communication that has been applied to their hearing devices, driving their philosophy that “life is on.”
A pair of glasses with integrated hearing aids, Visaton Super, was the beginning of a long string of innovations 1967, which led to 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.
The first digitally programmed hearing aid with an analogue processor (PICS) was released by Phonak, in 1992, followed by the AudioZoom multi-microphone concept in 1994 and the first tiny FM receiver (MicroLink) in 1996.
The first digital hearing system with a FM receiver released in 1999, the tiny MLx ear-level FM receiver hearing system the following year, and SmartLink (Bluetooth integration technology) in 2003 were added to the list of Phonak innovations. Since then, Phonak has worked on the development of bionic systems and Binaural VoiceStream Technology capable of improving sound distinction by up to 45% of challenging noise environments.
Materials technology developments in producing water-resistant housings in 2008 was combined with nano-digital technology, allowing Phonak to produce the world’s first extended wear hearing aids in 2011.

Hear what Dr. Corrales says about Phonak Hearing Aids
“Phonak has excellent technology available for all types of hearing loss.
At Cornerstone Audiology, we love to use Phonak for power hearing aids as they make a very successful hearing aid for profound hearing loss.
We also love Phonak for patients who need a CROS hearing aid. This type of device is designed for people who have some degree of hearing loss in one ear and a “dead ear” or unaidable hearing in the other ear.
The CROS (Contralateral routing of signal) sends auditory information from the dead side to the better ear wirelessly so that the patient doesn’t miss out on conversation on that side.
We are happy to service Starkey hearing aids in our Service Center or discuss if this product is a good fit for you or your loved ones based on your unique hearing loss and lifestyle.”
