The size 10 Audeo from Phonak is the smallest RIC in their portfolio. Available in a wide range of stylish colours, it sits discretely behind your ear, almost invisible. Having a size 10 battery means this hearing aid will last about 4-5 days on a battery. In the Quest Q30/50/70/90 range, the size 10 does not support wireless streaming or Bluetooth, but the new Venture V30/50/70/90 range is equipped with all the wireless and Bluetooth capabilities of its larger brethren. This style is rated IP57 for water and dust protection.
The 50 series (V50) is the bread and butter model from Phonak, and contains the necessary technology to ensure easy listening in a wide variety of environments. Featuring an automatic primary program, the hearing aids are well suited to a more relaxed lifestyle.
