Hearing Aids & Mobile Phones, Getting The Best Experience


Power To The People

Hearing aid smart apps for smart phones deliver real power to hearing aid users. The power to control and customise their hearing aids in deeper ways.

The Phonak RemoteControl App

The Phonak RemoteControl App turns any smartphone (Android and iOS) into a remote control. It provides people with Phonak Venture hearing aids the opportunity to have more control and flexibility over your hearing aids through the use of your smartphone.

The Phonak RC App

The RemoteControl App offers many you the ability to change and control the  functionalities of your hearing aids. For example, they can independently control the volume level of the left or right hearing aid independently, or change the language setting of your VoiceAlerts. It is also possible to control which external Bluetooth source you are streaming audio from allowing you to quickly change between one or the other. 

You can also select your hearing programme and change the direction of  the ZoomControl (front, back, left or right) giving you the ability to choose in which direction to focus your hearing and much more. The benefits that the app bring for you are in depth and we will look at the further functionality later. 

The Phonak RC App explainer

Phonak Com PilotThe RemoteControl App requires a Phonak ComPilot II or ComPilot Air II streamer as an interface to your Venture hearing aids. While the streamer can be used directly for simple volume and program adjustments, the RemoteControl App extends your control options. The RemoteControl App can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play. Once installed, the easy-to-follow pairing wizard will help you to connect the app to the streamer. A demonstration mode is also available to assist you in getting started and to learn the full power of the app. 

Required are devices with Apple iOS 7 or higher and Android 4.0 or higher. You can take a look at the best hearing aids from Phonak here.

Comprehensive and Meticulous

I am an experienced hearing aid user who recently attended Edinburgh Hearing Aid Practice for assessment. The latter was the most comprehensive I have experienced to date. Audiologist Katie was meticulous in arriving at the best solution for me. She has a positive and sympathetic approach which is so important in this sensitive area.

Friendly and Professional

My appointment with Katie was informative, professional and relaxed. She immediately put me at ease regarding the procedure I was about to have and advised me on the best earplugs to protect my hearing whilst playing loud music. I cannot recommend Edinburgh Hearing Practice enough. Receiving a friendly welcome from reception and a professional consultation made the whole experience worthwhile.
