Launched in August 2022, Audéo Lumity is latest flagship hearing aid from Phonak. The successor to the popular Audéo Paradise, Lumity is the first to run on AutoSense OS™ 5.0, and delivers new speech enhancement and directional microphone features that aim to deliver better speech clarity—especially in background noise. Let’s take a look at some of the key features of the product in more detail.

HearingTracker Audiologist Matthew Allsop provides a detailed review of the new Phonak Lumity hearing aids. Closed captions are available on this video. If you are using a mobile phone, please enable captions clicking on the gear icon.

Who Makes Lumity?

Lumity is made by Phonak, a Swiss hearing aid brand founded in 1947 and thought to be the largest among the “Big 5” global hearing aid brands. Phonak is part of the Sonova Group which includes Unitron, Lyric, and makes Audicus and Costco Kirkland Signature 10.0 hearing aids among others. They also own retail channels such as Connect Hearing and Hearing Planet and even manufacture Advanced Bionic cochlear implants.

Key Lumity features

  • AutoSense OS 5.0 – New operating system within the hearing aid;
  • StereoZoom 2.0 – Improved automatic directional microphone system;
  • SpeechSensor – Allows for directionality focused behind the listener.

Product Form Factors and Technology Tiers

The Audéo Lumity hearing aids are available only in Receiver-In-Canal (RIC) models but there are 3 to choose from including:

  • Audéo L-R = Rechargeable RIC, no telecoil, push button;
  • Audéo L-RT = Rechargeable RIC, telecoil, push button;
  • Audéo L-RL = Rechargeable RIC, waterproof, no telecoil, push button.

All three of the RICs come with an IP68 rating. The Audéo L-RL has additional features, such as the absence of charging contacts, that help improve its resistance to moisture. An IP68 rating means these aids should withstand dust, dirt, and sand, and are resistant to submersion up to a maximum depth of 1.5m (about 5 ft) underwater for up to 30 minutes (but we don’t recommend trying this!).

The Lumity hearing aids are available in 4 different technology tiers including 90 (Premium)70 (Advanced)50 (Standard), and 30 (Essential), and in 8 different color options. Technology tiers provide you with a choice of level of technology and offer lower cost options in the lower tiers. Which tier you chose will depend on several factors including how much you are willing or capable of paying, your lifestyle and listening needs, and your degree and type of hearing loss—especially your ability to hear in noise. Your Hearing Care Provider (HCP) can help guide you to the appropriate technology.  Be sure to discuss all your options with your HCP.

Who is it for?

All the Lumity hearing aids can accommodate hearing losses ranging from mild to severe to profound and your HCP has a choice of 5 different receivers (speakers) to accommodate your hearing loss needs.

You might be interested in Lumity if you’re looking for:

  • Better hearing in noise: The Lumity product line is geared for people who are seeking easier communication in diverse listening environments.
  • Rechargeability: All current products are rechargeable.
  • Connectivity: Lumity offers hands-free connectivity for both Apple® iOS and Android™ phones, with tap controls for top two technology tiers (90 and 70), and it supports up to 8 pairings and 2 active connections.
  • Fitness/health tracking: All models have some fitness tracking including step count, wearing time, activity levels, distance walked and ran, and optional goal setting via the MyPhonak app, as well as the ability to connect remotely with your provider.
  • Accessories: Although they generally cost extra, the Phonak Roger line offers one of the best selections of remotes, remote mics, and TV accessories.

Lumity FAQs

All three Lumity RIC hearing instruments come with a multi-function button on the hearing aid casing. This button acts as an on/off switch and can also be programmed as volume and/or program change control. You also have the option of controlling your hearing aids via the free myPhonak smart phone app, or you can have your hearing care provider order a RemoteControl simple control at an additional cost.

What technology tier you choose will depend on several factors, including how much you are willing or able to spend on hearing aids. While Medicare does not cover the cost of a hearing aid, check with your insurance provider to see if you have a hearing aid benefit.

However, cost should not be your only deciding factor when choosing the level of technology. Your lifestyle, degree and type of hearing loss, and listening requirements should guide you to the level of technology you need. For example, if you seldom attend social functions and are often in the same listening environment, a lower tier of technology may work well for you. But if you are often in changing and challenging listening environments, it may be worth investing in the higher-level technology.

Which technology, and indeed which hearing aid model and brand, works best for you should be a discussion you have with your hearing care provider. Ask questions and understand all your options.

Yes, Lumity does have tinnitus features that can be controlled by your hearing care provider, and you can control the volume of the tinnitus noise generator within the myPhonak app.

Your hearing care provider can program up to 4 distinct listening programs for you.

AutoSense OS 5.0

AutoSense OS 5.0 is the new operating system that allows for significant processing power, albeit in the same chip platform used by the Phonak Paradise product line. For example, the system utilizes machine learning to scan and identify the listener’s environment 700 times per second. That information is used to align the technology within the hearing aid and Phonak reports that there are over 200 different combinations of the hearing aid’s settings.

As with most hearing aids, the intent is to provide the best possible combination of controls for a given listening environment. Lumity will coordinate numerous features such as noise reduction and directional microphones (using microphones on two hearing aids in the case of a binaural fitting), boost soft speech in quieter environments, and even utilize a motion sensor to understand when the listener is moving.

These features, along with others, utilize machine learning so that the hearing aid can learn, or improve its accuracy over time.

StereoZoom 2.0 for optimal focus of directional microphones and better hearing in noise

As part of Phonak’s SmartSpeech™ technology, StereoZoom 2.0 is a feature new to Lumity. Essentially, it is an improved automatic directional microphone system that enhances spatial awareness in low noise environments, and it gradually moves to a more focused directional pattern as noise increases. In other words, when in quieter listening environments, the microphones will attempt to pick up sound from all directions around you, but as noise increases so does the focus or strength of the directional microphones. So it is adaptive to your current listening environment and is intended to be seamless.

The strength of StereoZoom 2.0 can be adjusted both by your HCP in the programming software and you now also have control with the “Speech Focus” slider within the myPhonak app. This gives you, the listener, some control over how “focused” you would like the hearing aids to be for speech coming from in front of you.

Phonak Senior Product Audiologist Shin-Shin Hobi explains the new in StereoZoom 2.0 which is featured in the all-new Phonak Audéo Lumity hearing aids. Closed captions are available on this video. If you are using a mobile phone, please enable captions clicking on the gear icon.

According to an internal study conducted by Phonak, StereoZoom 2.0 allowed for a 3.0 dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) improvement compared to their older, Real Ear Sound technology, which dates to 2005. How much improvement exists over their latest technology as seen in the Paradise product, for example, is not noted. Phonak also reports that changing the strength of StereoZoom 2.0 from the default setting to its maximum setting allows for an additional 2.5 dB improvement.

So, what does a SNR improvement mean to you? Simply said, those with normal hearing can understand speech in noise better than those with sensorineural hearing loss. This means that if you have a hearing loss, you need the signal (speech) to be noticeably louder than the background noise to have a chance to understand it.  As shown in HearingTracker consumer surveys, hearing in noise is the primary complaint of hearing aid wearers.  As an example, a normal-hearing listener may understand 50% of words in a situation where the signal (speech) is only 2 dB louder than the noise (+2 SNR), but a hearing-impaired listener may need an SNR of +8 dB or greater to get the same score. However, improving the SNR even by a few dB can help increase your chances of understanding what is said and minimize your listening effort.

This is exactly the point of directional microphones as they diminish noise from certain directions around you (usually to the side and rear) and focus on sound that are in front of you.  However, how well the directional microphones work for you will depend on multiple factors, including the real level of the noise, how reverberant the room is, your degree of hearing loss, venting in the hearing aids, etc. 

Regardless, directional microphones are one of the best and easiest ways to help those with hearing loss understand speech in noise while reducing your overall listening effort. This new system by Phonak is a fine-tuning of their previous technology that may further improve your listening in noise compared to their previous generation of hearing aids.

Phonak Lumity Stereozoomusecase 1200x675

Lumity is designed to excel in situations where there is competing noise sources, while also provides speech detection for regions other than directly in front of the user.

SpeechSensor for detecting speech to the side or from behind

Also part of Phonak’s SmartSpeech™ technology, SpeechSensor detects which direction dominant speech is located and allows speech from the side, or even from behind the listener to be amplified. Essentially, it allows for directionality not just from in front of the listener but from other directions as well. Multiple manufacturers have similar technology in their instruments. The ability of the hearing aid to minimize noise from in front of you and hear speech from the side or from behind can be advantageous in certain situations. For example, when driving a car and trying to hear the person in the back seat or when you are otherwise focusing your vision forward but need to hear what is being said to you from behind or to the side.

Keep in mind that SpeechSensor and StereoZoom 2.0 do not work in isolation. Obviously, you are also hearing sounds amplified in the frequency (pitch) regions you need them and other aspects of the hearing aid are also engaged as needed.  For example, directional microphones may be engaged at the same time as noise reduction, compression, etc.

It should be noted that all the features discussed in this article and others are not available on all technology tiers.  That is, some features and even environmental classes are available only in the highest technology tiers. For example, SpeechSensor is only available in the 90 technology tier and StereoZoom 2.0 is only available in the 90 and 70 tiers. This is not unusual as all hearing aid manufacturers limit features in the lower technology tiers.

Unique ActiveVent reduces own-voice vs. feedback problems

First introduced in Paradise hearing aids, the ActiveVent receiver is a mechanically variable vent that allows, within the same fitting, both an open- and closed-ear coupling. It can vary from fully occluded to a standard 3.5 mm open vent. The purpose of this is to allow for own-voice comfort and improved hearing performance in certain situations.

When you are fit with your hearing aids, your HCP will determine what type of ear coupling is needed for your hearing aid. This can range from a very open dome (that allows a lot of unprocessed sound to enter the ear canal) to a custom earmold with no venting (eg, a “closed fitting” that blocks all sound from entering the ear canal and relies completely on the signal processing of the hearing aid). The type of coupling and venting will be based upon your degree of hearing loss, the perception of your own voice when wearing the hearing aids, the level of feedback encountered, and other factors.

Open vents have the benefit of making your own voice sound more natural (minimal occlusion effect) and allow for some environmental sounds to be heard naturally. However, open vents have the disadvantage of limiting low frequency (pitch) amplification and, therefore, how effective noise reduction, directionality, and other features are in these low frequencies. It also means that amplified sounds can leak out of the ear and be re-amplified causing annoying feedback. Feedback is that annoying whistle/squelch you hear at times with amplified systems. As such, your HCP must strike a balance with all these considerations to give you the best possible physical and acoustic fit, and sometimes trade-offs must be made.

The ActiveVent receiver, however, is designed to give you both an open and closed fitting within the same earpiece. That is, the ActiveVent receiver has a small disc within it that can switch between open and closed. When the disc is in the open position, you get the advantages mentioned above—most notably, making your own voice sound more natural. However, in challenging noise situations or when streaming music, the disc will automatically move to the closed position allowing for improved directionality, noise reduction, and amplification of low frequencies, if needed. 

small study conducted at the National Acoustic Laboratories (NAL) in Australia and in conjunction with Phonak researchers tested the benefit of the ActiveVent receiver in several listening situations: speech in noise and when streaming in both quiet and in noise. The study also asked the participants to rate their own-voice quality when wearing the ActiveVent compared to a standard custom earpiece with venting. The results indicated that the ActiveVent provided a 10% increase in speech understanding in noise compared to the standard custom earpiece. They also found listener preferences for listener’s own voice and audio streaming in quiet with the ActiveVent versus the standard custom earpiece. This study supports the use of the ActiveVent and indicates it may be beneficial to those hearing aid wearers who need (or prefer) a closed coupling system but also struggle with the occlusion effect.

Hands-free connectivity for both Apple and Android devices

Phonak has been a leader in hearing aid wireless connectivity for many years, and that tradition continues with the Lumity hearing aids. As you would expect, Lumity is compatible with both Android™ and Apple® products and other Bluetooth® enabled devices such as tablets and laptops. It currently uses Bluetooth 4.2 wireless technology, but is also compatible with many older Bluetooth phones. It incorporates both Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth Low Energy protocols allowing for “universal” connectivity.

Phonak Lumity Man At Computer 1200x675

Phonak made-for-all connectivity supports up to 8 pairings and 2 active connections, allowing the wearer to easily switch between streamed audio from one device to another and to make true hands-free calls.

You can be actively connected to two different Bluetooth devices and pair up to 8 devices for direct streaming, in stereo, to your hearing aids. The hearing aids also act as a hands-free device, meaning that during phone calls, there is no need to speak directly into the cell phone as the microphones on your hearing aids act as the input.

Lumity, like its predecessors, the Marvel and Paradise hearing aids, also feature tap control (in 90 and 70 technology tiers) allowing you to accept/end a phone call, pause/resume streaming, and access voice assistants such as Apple’s Siri®. While this is a handy feature, some wearers have noted that it’s not as simple to operate as they had hoped; using the tap control may take practice for some while others may choose simply not to use the feature.

Phonak offers a handy compatibility webpage to see if your phone is compatible with different models of their hearing aids.

myPhonak App: More controls, virtual consults with HCP, and health monitoring for Audéo Fit

The newest version of the myPhonak app, version 6.2.1, was released September 20, 2022 and has a few revisions and bug fixes compared to previous versions. The release of 6.2.0 provided a new separation of speech focus and noise reduction controls, as well as the ability to control StereoZoom 2.0. The app also allows for program change, volume change, and equalizer presets to change tone such as bass and treble.

Lumity App Screen Shots 1200x675

Screenshots of the myPhonak app in action (l to r): 1) Main screen with program selections on top and volume, mute, and basic option screens on bottom; 2) Personalized settings that allow for volume, noise reduction, and speech focus; 3) health monitor screen with hearing aid wearing time, and step counter (note: heart rate monitor available in Audéo Fit only); 4) remote care screen where you can have a virtual meeting with your hearing care provider.

The myPhonak app also allows for health tracking features, such as wearing time, daily steps, activity level, and distance walked. However, not all features, like the heart rate tracking are available with the Lumity hearing aids. For full health tracking features, you would need to purchase the Audéo Fit hearing aids.

Several hearing aid manufacturers are incorporating health features into their hearing aids. The thinking here is that improved hearing is only one part of a healthy lifestyle. Several studies have suggested a correlation between hearing loss and other chronic illnesses such as mobility, risk of fallscognitive decline and dementia, and other deficits. Research has also suggested that older adults (50 and above) with untreated hearing loss may have a higher likelihood of physical inactivity compared to their hearing peers and those who wear hearing instruments.  As such, utilizing your hearing aids and the associated app to improve overall health outcomes is an intriguing thought.  At the very least, it might be fun to set goals and track them without the need for another gadget.

The app also accommodates remote care—allowing you to request a video appointment with your HCP to make hearing aid programming adjustments and even test your hearing through the hearing aids, if needed. Phonak, along with other hearing aid manufacturers, first introduced remote care out of necessity during the Covid pandemic but the option remains in place.

The myPhonak app is not highly rated on either the Apple app store or the Google Play™ app store showing ratings of 1.7 and 2.2, respectively.  Most of the complaints revolve around ease of use, maintaining the Bluetooth connection, and the hearing aids staying in the selected program. This type of lackluster rating for a hearing aid app, unfortunately, are not uncommon across brands—primarily due to connectivity issues. The latest version from Phonak, released only one month after 6.2.0, contains bug fixes so, perhaps, the overall ratings will improve.

Rechargeability for all three Lumity models

All three available Phonak Audéo Lumity hearing aids are rechargeable RIC styles. A disposable battery option or custom products are not available at the time of writing this article. Two different chargers are available depending on which RIC product is chosen and a charger should be included in the price of the hearing aids. The Audéo L- RL (Audéo Life) hearing aid is a “waterproof” version and requires the Phonak Charger Case Go, as the hearing aid utilizes inductive charging instead of charging contacts. This helps to ensure the case remains sealed against moisture. The Charger Case Go also provides portability as the case, once fully charged, will hold 3 additional charges for your hearing aids without the need for an electrical outlet.

Lumity Chargers

The Phonak Charger Ease (left) and the Carter Case Go (right).

The other two RIC options, the Audéo L-R and the Audéo L-RT utilize the Phonak Charger Ease, which is a compact charger with magnets which help guide the instruments into place. Both chargers use a simple USB-C charging port and will take 3 hours to fully charge your hearing aids. Wearing time can be up to 18 hours of use on a single charge.  However, keep in mind that actual battery life will depend on your hearing aid’s settings, how much time you spend streaming and your listening environments.

Accessories

As with most Phonak hearing aids, you have a choice of several different accessories. These include the TV Connector, the RemoteControl, and the PartnerMic™. For people who have significant difficultly hearing in noise or are often listening in classroom- or meeting-type settings, the Roger microphones are also an option. The Lumity hearing aids already have a built-in receiver for the Roger remote microphones; they simply need to be engaged to worked. Phonak provides an informative website about Roger microphones if you would like to learn more.

All accessories listed below are optional and are typically an additional charge to the price of your hearing aids.

Phonak Lumity Cake 1200x675

Roger On is a versatile microphone for Lumity dedicated for all conversations where background noise is present or when there is a distance to the speaker.

TV Connector

As the name suggests the TV connector is used to connect your hearing aids wirelessly to your TV. It is intended to be a “plug and play” solution that can help improve your overall TV listening experience. The TV Connector streams the TV’s audio directly to your hearing aids within a range of up to 15 meters or almost 50 feet. What that means for you is that noise in the room will be less noticeable and you’ll hear the TV more readily, making dialogue and other sounds easier to hear.

RemoteControl

For those who may have difficulty utilizing the hearing aid’s on-board push-button control or lack the tech savvy (or willingness) to utilize the myPhonak smart phone app, a simple remote control is available. The remote may be especially useful for those Lumity wearers who still want/need to change volume and/or program but have dexterity issues (like a tremor) that make using push buttons and sensitive smart phone screens incredibly frustrating or even impossible to use.

PartnerMic

Above we discussed how directional microphones can help improve the signal (speech) to noise ratio (SNR) and why directional microphones are a great way to help improve hearing in noisy listening environments. However, some listeners may require even more help to follow the conversation. 

That’s where the PartnerMic comes into play. Ear-level hearing aids can pick up speech from those around you, but the person you want to hear may be several feet from you and sometimes at an even greater distances (think lecture hall). This means their voice will be diminished with distance and other sounds from the same direction will also be picked up by the hearing aid microphones. However, when a microphone is placed on the lapel of the person you wish to hear, their voice is much closer to the mic—meaning better SNR. This greatly improves the SNR and helps improve speech clarity and understanding.  Remote microphones, like PartnerMic, are simple, very effective, and increasingly popular tools to help you hear speech better.

The PartnerMic needs to be paired to your hearing aids, but once paired will work automatically when your turn it on. It has a range of up to 25 meters (about 82 feet) and provides up to 6 hours of use on a single charge. A full recharge takes approximately 2 hours.

Pros and Cons

Pros

Improved, slimmer body design with improved control button

Bottom Line on Lumity

The Lumity line of hearing aids are the latest flagship product offered by Phonak. They appear to have some improvements over the previous generation Paradise products especially in regards to how well the directional microphones manage noise. However, these improvements seem iterative—that is, there are no earth-shattering changes in this product compared to Paradise or the Marvel products. 

Regardless, Lumity is still a very well-designed high-end hearing aid, and the numerous technology levels make it available at different price points. In addition, Phonak’s universal connectivity, hands-free calling, and other advanced technology features make it a very attractive product. For those who struggle to hear speech in noise and are in variable and challenging listening environments, this product should be a good fit for you. However, as always, here at HearingTracker, we highly recommend you discuss all your options with your HCP as multiple manufacturers have similar technology.

Phonak Audéo Lumity L90 Phonak Audéo Lumity RT

I have been using widex hearing aids for years, but when I went to upgrade, I learned that all the new android compatible hearing aids don't support hands free calling with my pixel phone. SO, I decided to try phonak, which is apparently the only brand to offer hands free on android (most of the others work with iphone only). While I preferred the sound quality of my old aids, I do think I'm hearing my wife more clearly with these, and the hands free calling is seriously nice.
