Recently, Phonak launched their new platform that should be shipping out as we speak caled the Audeo Belong Rechargeable or Audeo B-R. According to the materials that we received from Phonak they are claiming that the hearing instrument charges very quickly with about 24 hours of batt life. They also explain in their documents that the hearing instrument do have a streaming batt life around 80 min continuoulsy. Glad to see that they offer the Audeo B-R at the 312T series as well. This does have the telecoil as well as probrably the larger model Audeo B-R 13. All according to what I read are compatible with the icompilotII and compilotair as well. Still I believe you will need to add a program for T-Coil use. But overall can't wait to get my hands on they to try them out with our patients supossedly their new version of autosense creates a better advatage for patients especially in situations with coversatiion in noise. Very interesting.
We recently added the Phonak Audéo B-R to our hearing aid review database. We're excited to see what customers will report, especially with regard to real world battery life. The B-R does not have a telecoil, and to my knowledge it is not directly compatible with smarphones like the iPhone. The B-R is compatible with the Phonak ComPilot II, ComPilot Air II, and EasyCall, which can help you to connect your devices to 3rd party Bluetooth devices (like your iPhone).
Yes Phonak does make hearing aids that are bluetooth, have telecoil and as of just recently have come out with the rechargeable aids as well.
Unfortunately the new Phonak Audeo B-R does not have a t-coil option but does offer the rechargeable capabilities as well as accessories to enable the Bluetooth.
