The Phonak Virto Belong 90, also known as the Phonak Virto B90, is the flagship custom style hearing aid manufactured by Phonak. It is designed for mild to profound hearing losses and is available in 6 different custom hearing aid aid styles.

The Phonak Belong platform incorporates the upgraded AutoSense OS feature also allows for better hearing performance, sound quality and listening comfort. In addition, new ‘biometric calibration’ technology allows for the hearing aids to be manufactured specifically to your individual ear anatomy for improved hearing performance especially in noise.

IMPORTANT: Hearing aids are medical devices that require the clinical expertise of an Audiologist or Hearing Aid Audiologist to perform a comprehensive hearing assessment and verification of fitting. This is to ensure the hearing aids have been correctly and optimally programmed to suit your individual hearing loss, ear acoustics and listening needs. Additionally, some of the technological features described may not be as effective or suitable depending upon the severity and nature of your hearing loss. A fully qualified and registered Audiologist or Hearing Aid Audiologist will be able to advise accordingly.

Real-world benefit

Biometric Calibration Yes

The hearing aids are precisely calibrated to your individual ear anatomy during manufacturing for better hearing performance.

AutoSense OS 7

The hearing aids automatically analyse and adapt in different listening environments to provide the best possible listening experience.

Channels 20

The hearing aid ‘splits’ and ‘separates’ incoming sound into its different frequencies before processing each frequency channel independently based on the listening environment, listening needs and hearing loss of the individual. This helps provide a higher resolution and more natural sound quality.

Gain Handles 20

This relates to the number of frequency channels that can be adjusted to personalise the hearing aid to your specific hearing loss, listening needs and ear acoustics to help provide a more natural and crisper sound quality.

Programmes 5

For a more personalised fitting the hearing aids can be adjusted and specifically programmed for different listening environments, such as music, outdoors, party, restaurant etc.

NoiseBlock Yes

Reduces unwanted background noise in noisy situations to reduce listening effort and improve speech understanding.

WindBlock Yes Dampens wind noise when outdoors to reduce listening effort and improve speech understanding.
EchoBlock Yes

Reduces echoes in large and reverberant rooms, such as high ceiling halls and hard surfaced restaurants.

SoundRelax Yes

Instantly dampens sudden loud sounds that occur in the environment so that they are not uncomfortable.

Real Ear Sound Yes

Mimics how the folds and crease of the outer ear help to locate whether sounds are coming from behind or front of you. In addition, its helps to provide a more natural and realistic sound quality.

Speech in Loud Noise Yes The two hearing aids combine to project a narrow focus towards a single speaker in front of you when in a loud and noisy listening environment.
Speech in Wind Yes

Wind noise is dampened in the hearing aid where it is loudest and replaced by speech that is streamed from the opposite and less wind affected hearing aid.

Speech in Car Yes

Automatically detects when travelling in a car before reducing unwanted car and road noise to reduce listening effort and improve speech understanding.

Comfort in Echo Yes

Detects and reduces the volume of echoes to ensure the listening environment is comfortable.

Speech in 360° Yes

Detects the loudest speaker in the environment and streams their speech directly into both hearing aids simultaneously to improve speech understanding.

UltraZoom Premium

Detects sounds from all around when in a quiet place before quickly switching focus towards speech even if to the side or behind you when in a noisy place.

SoundRecover Yes

Coverts and squashes high frequency sounds that cannot be heard by a listener due to their hearing loss into a lower frequency so they can be heard.

SoundRecover 2 Yes

This is the upgraded version of SoundRecover and is automatically activated only when high frequency sounds are detected, which has been found to offer a better sound quality.

FlexControl Yes

Volume adjustments made in specific listening environments are learned by the hearing aid and automatically applied.

FlexVolume Yes

When volume is increased, more emphasis is provided to the important speech frequencies to improve speech clarity. On the other hand when volume is decreased, a greater reduction in sound is applied for frequencies that make up background noise to provide listening comfort and maintain speech understanding.

User Preference Tuning Yes

The hearing aid remembers the overall changes made with both FlexControl and FlexVolume and automatically applies them for you.

WhistleBlock Yes

Eliminates unwanted whistling from the hearing aid.

QuickSync Yes

Volume adjustments and program changes made on one hearing aid are automatically transferred to the opposite hearing.

TinnitusBalance Yes

Helps the brain become distracted from tinnitus by instead listening to a selection of masking noise sounds.
