What’s inside

Discover what makes our hearing loss solutions stand out.

As your clients move through different listening environments throughout the day, it is important to have an automatic operating system that can adapt. That’s AutoSense OS.

How it works

AutoSense OS has been trained with artificial intelligence-based machine learning to accurately identify a sound environment. It orchestrates the numerous comfort and speech understanding features in Lumity to adapt to the listener’s personal sound environment.

Main features

  • Maintains natural sound of speech
  • Adapts to different environments to help focus on conversations
  • Improves the listening experience when streaming media

Understanding one-to-one and group conversations in noise were ranked as some of the top ‘most important’ listening situations for hearing aid wearers. Phonak offers advanced directionality & noise reduction features to address these needs.

How it works

AutoSense OS 5.0 continuously scans the environment to adjust the hearing aids to meet the needs of the wearer. Depending on the situation, Phonak hearing aids have a variety of programs that can be activated to optimize hearing in noise by reducing listening effort1, improving speech understanding1, and increasing environmental awareness.

Products that feature Directionality & Noise Reduction

Audeo Lumity–>

Main features

  • Dynamic Noise Cancellation is a spatial noise canceller that works in combination with directional microphones to make it easier to hear in noise.1
  • Motion Sensor Hearing detects when the wearer is moving to optimize hearing in noise on the go.
  • SpeechSensor detects the main speech source and adjusts the microphone mode accordingly to ensure better access to speech from the sides and back.1
  • StereoZoom 2.0 is a binaural adaptive directional microphone system that offers greater focus on speech from the front in noisy environments.

The world is full of high-frequency sounds, which are the first sounds we lose as we get older. Your clients need a frequency compression algorithm that can help: SoundRecover2.

How it works

SoundRecover2 aims to restore the audibility of high-frequency sounds while leaving intact the low-frequency

structures important for good sound quality. This is accomplished by compressing high-frequency sounds to a lower cut-off frequency.

Products that feature SoundRecover2

Audeo Lumity–>

Main features

  • Gives access to high-frequency sounds enjoyed in daily life
  • Provides awareness of important high frequency signals in the environment
  • Contributes to speech understanding

Understanding soft speech is sometimes overlooked as a need, but soft-spoken conversations are just as important as louder ones. Speech Enhancer makes it easier for your clients to hear soft or distant speech in quiet.

How it works

When Speech Enhancer detects soft or distant speech in a quiet environment, up to 10 dB of additional gain is applied to the incoming speech signal.

Products that feature Speech Enhancer

Audeo Lumity–>

Main features

  • Automatically activates when soft speech is detected
  • Specifically targets soft and distant speech in quiet

Understanding speech while watching TV is a top need of those with hearing loss. TV Connector can help improve the TV listening experience for your clients wearing Phonak hearing aids.

How it works

The Phonak TV Connector plugs into many televisions and media players via the auxiliary or optical ports. It will then stream media directly to connected Phonak hearing aids. This gives the wearer independent control of the volume and environmental balance, and the flexibility to enjoy TV on their terms.

Where it’s used

TV Connector can be used in TVs and other media players around the home, office, or even at school.

Phonak ActiveVent™ Receiver is the world’s first intelligent hearing aid receiver and attaches to Audéo Lumity hearing aids. It intelligently combines the hearing performance of a closed fit with the comfort of an open fit.

How it works

This innovative receiver technology features a mechanically switching vent that is seamlessly steered by AutoSense OS™ 4.0 and newer versions. ActiveVent intelligently balances speech clarity in noise and listening comfort. The combination of Lumity with ActiveVent Receiver provides, on average, 10% better speech understanding in noise* while providing natural sound in everyday listening situations.

Understanding speech from a distance and in noise are rated as some of the most important needs by those with hearing loss. Roger, your client’s ‘third ear,’ can help.

How it works

Roger measures the surrounding noise level and adapts the volume of the microphone accordingly. As the noise level increases or decreases, the microphone will continue to adapt, so that it can handle the dynamic nature of noisy environments. Roger microphones can provide:

  • 3x better speech intelligibility in noise versus hearing aids alone.1
  • Better hearing in a variety of listening situations.
  • Compatibility with virtually any hearing aid or cochlear implant with a telecoil.


Where it’s used

Anywhere that background noise, distance, or the combination of the two is causing problems with communication. Roger is great for use at home, in the workplace, at restaurants or museums, social events, at school, or even on the go.

StereoZoom 2.0

Imagine trying to focus on a conversation in a noisy place when you are tired; the effort can be draining. The new StereoZoom 2.0 in Lumity intelligently adapts the strength of focus as the level of noise increases. You can even adjust the focus strength of StereoZoom 2.0, to your preference and in real time via the Speech Focus slider in myPhonak app. This extra focus can lead to 2.5 dB better signal-to-noise ratio.***


SpeechSensor is an algorithm that detects the direction from which the main speech signal is coming from. The real life benefit means you can understand speech 15% better when speech is from the side/rear in addition to 11% reduced listening effort.****5

Audéo Lumity

Features and performance levels

Features on all Audéo Lumity devices

Speech in noise

Adapts and reduces noise from behind in real time and applies and optimizes the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in noisy environments.

Calm situation

Provides optimal gain for speech understanding and listening comfort when engaging in one-on-one conversations in quiet.

Comfort in noise

Actively reduces noise for increased comfort when no speech is present.


Offers an expanded dynamic range, slow compression speed and more gain for a fuller and richer music experience.

Acustic phone

The key feature DuoPhone streams the signal in real time to the other ear so the caller’s voice is heard in both ears with an average benefit of 3.1 dB SNR.

auto Acclimatization

auto Acclimatization is used to automatically increase the client’s amplification, while the client is using the device. The starting level, speed of the acclimatization and the target level can easily be adjusted.

Environmental balance

Environmental balance is a volume modification capability in Phonak hearing aids that allows clients to adjust the volume of the streamed signal versus the surrounding environmental sounds by the press of the volume control.


WhistleBlock differentiates between naturally occurring feedback-like sounds and true feedback. This means increased audibility and sound quality that is free from annoying feedback.


Directional microphone technology is a proven method of effectively improving speech intelligibility in background noise. UltraZoom is the adaptive multi-channel beamforming technology, automatically available in AutoSense OS or in a manual program.


One-touch controls two. The instantaneous broadband transfer of data between two instruments ensures that volume and program settings are always balanced and synchronized. One touch on the program selection button or volume control results in instant identical change in the other instrument.


The next generation of SoundRecover further improves speech audibility and utilizes an adaptive frequency lowering algorithm. Sound quality of mid and low frequencies are maintained while high frequency sounds are made audible. This creates an optimal listening experience for more users than ever before.

Acoustically Optimized Venting (AOV)

A proprietary, multidimensional-weighted algorithm sets an ideal target “acoustic mass” for each vent. The sophisticated 3D modeling software generates an individualized vent. This unique Acoustically Optimized Venting (AOV) value is coded into each instrument and used to optimize the fitting calculation. Occlusion can now be reduced to the lowest level possible. This exclusive Phonak innovation is available in the full range of custom products and styles. It is also available for BTE wearers with a SlimTip, SlimTip Soft, cShell, or xShell.
