Paradise Reinvented

Audéo Life hearing aids feature a unique housing and special coating that seals the device. In addition, they are the first Phonak hearing aids designed with a new induction charger called the Phonak Charger Case Go™. When a consumer places their Audéo Life hearing aids into the new charger case, the hearing aids are magnetically held into place for hassle-free charging at home and on the go.

By expanding and augmenting Paradise technology with Audéo Life, Phonak aims to boost consumer confidence in both the purchase of and adoption of hearing aids. Research shows that Audéo Life would motivate one in five people with untreated hearing loss to obtain their first pair of hearing aids1. Audéo Life hearing aids may also help reduce the anxiety associated with wearing hearing aids around water or during physical activities1
