Mobile phones are one of the most important tools to live a mobile lifestyle. Phonak EasyCall gives hearing aid users all they need to enjoy this lifestyle: Permanently attached to the mobile phone, it transmits phone conversations directly to both ears – hassle free and at an unmatched call quality. And what’s best: Phonak EasyCall connects any Phonak wireless hearing aid to any Bluetooth enabled mobile. Combined with the latest hearing aid generation from Phonak, Audéo V or Bolero V, that offer easy operation and consumes up to 30% less battery when streaming, Phonak EasyCall brings more flexibility, quality of life and freedom than ever to hearing aid users.

“Phonak EasyCall is the flexible none compromise mobile solution,” says Martin Grieder, Group Vice President at Phonak. “Phonak hearing aid users can simply keep their existing Bluetooth enabled mobile, attach Phonak EasyCall and be immediately ready to make and receive calls. The call will be automatically streamed to both hearing aids, with 30% less battery consumption. We think this is how easy a mobile conversation should be for everyone today.”

Hearing aid users can keep or choose the mobile of their choice, even if it is a non-smartphone or an older model. If they want to connect their existing mobile to their hearing aids, they can keep their existing settings and existing apps.

Phonak EasyCall is permanently attached and constantly connected to the mobile phone and is ready to make or receive a phone call whenever you are ready. It never gets lost or forgotten.

Phonak EasyCall is described by the manufacturers as a cost effective solution that offers improved listening comfort and speech understanding by transmitting the caller’s voice directly to both hearing aids. Combined with the latest Phonak hearing aid generation that uses intelligent technology to block wind and filter background noise, it allows for unmatched sound quality.

Headquartered near Zurich, Switzerland, Phonak, a member of the Sonova Group, has developed, produced and globally distributed state-of-the-art hearing systems and wireless devices for more than 60 years. The combination of expertise in hearing technology, mastery in acoustics and strong cooperation with hearing care professionals allows Phonak to significantly improve people’s hearing ability and speech understanding and therefore their quality of life.
