Phonak Hearing Aids

The Phonak Alpina brand, a leader in the development of wireless communication, produced their first portable audio devices in 1950. Visaton Super, which integrated hearing aids with a pair of glasses, was the beginning of a long string of innovations 1967, leading to the production of 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.

PICS, the first digitally programmed hearing aid with an analogue processor, the AudioZoom multi-microphone concept, and MicroLink, the first tiny FM receiver, were released by Phonak in 1992, 1994, and 1996, respectively.

1999 saw the development and production of the first digital hearing system with FM receiver, followed by the tiny MLx ear-level FM receiver hearing system the next year, and SmartLink (Bluetooth integration technology) in 2003.

The combination of water-resistant housings developed in 2008 and nano-digital technology made it possible for Phonak to produce the world’s first extended wear hearing aids in 2011.
