Your friends wanted to go on a social walk but you look out the window and it’s raining. You know that your hearing aids may get damaged in the rain so you don’t want to join your friends. This makes you feel sad. Or perhaps today it’s sunny and hot. Everyone is enjoying themselves at the pool, but you feel that you can’t join the conversation without your hearing aids. But if you take your aids to the pool, maybe one of your rambunctious grandchildren will splash you with water and break your aids. Soon you find that even with hearing aids you still end up alone. If you feel nervous about using your hearing aids near the pool or in the rain, then you need the Phonak Audeo Life!

The Phonak Life is the world’s first waterproof rechargeable hearing aid. It combines the crisp sound performance of the top of the range Phonak Audeo Paradise with a robust shell to protect from water. Audeo Life is capable of being submerged in up to 50cm or 1.64 feet of fresh, pool or salt water. So there is no more need to worry about the rain or water activities! This means that the hearing aid is also sweat proof! So now you can hear your mates at the gym or stream music through your aids while working out. The Phonak Life is even shower proof. So if you’ve ever broken a hearing aid by jumping into the shower or by sport that makes you sweat, worry no more! The Phonak Life will survive this.

How is the Phonak Life so durable? Many adjustments were made to the shell to protect the hearing aid from any type of moisture exposure. The microphone is protected with an extra layer and all seams are closed off with silicone. All internal circuitry was coated in parylene which is known for its waterproofing qualities and inductive charging is used for the rechargeable battery instead of battery contacts. As you can see, this hearing aid has a fortified shell but still keeps all of the sleek style from ordinary hearing aids and comes in eight fantastic colours.

An audiologist tested the Phonak Life by going on a 2 hour trail run, swimming 30 laps in the pool, taking a shower, and even dumping them in a cup of water overnight and they still survived! Can your current hearing aid do that?

The Phonak Life is based on the Phonak Paradise which is one of the most popular lines created. So what does this mean? This means that this hearing aid is one of the most sophisticated on the market when it comes to crisp natural sound quality. If you want the top of the range and get the most natural hearing possible… This is definitely the hearing aid for you. Furthermore, this hearing aid is one of the only ones on the market which has universal bluetooth connectivity. So you can connect to any brand of smartphone to stream phone calls, music, podcasts, and more!

As mentioned previously, the Phonak Life uses inductive charging so it is much easier to place the hearing aids in and out of the charger, which is a bonus for people with dexterity issues. The new charging case for these aids also contains its own battery which stores up to three full charges, really making this the ideal aid for active people. You can easily go for a multi day hike by taking the charger with you and you don’t have to worry about sweating or being caught in the rain because your aids can survive this. The Phonak Life gives you true freedom.

So now when your friends are out in the rain you can leave the house and join them. Now when it’s sunny…go join your family at the pool and maybe even have a water fight with those rambunctious grandchildren you were worried about before. Phonak Life gives you the social life you deserve.
