Does Phonak make a hearing aid with Bluetooth, telecoil, and rechargeable batteries?

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).

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.
