It comes in a choice of 11 colours, so you can match your personality, hair or skin with either vibrant or subtle tones. They can be worn with traditional tubing and moulds or they can be worn with thin tube and domes, whichever suits your hearing loss.
The three behind the ear models of Bolero are the V90-m (mini), the Bolero V90- p (power), and the Bolero V90-sp (super power). The Phonak Bolero V90 contains the highest level of technology in the Bolero range. It has 20 sound processing channels and a wide range of programs and features to help you to hear in challenging environments.
The dust proof coating is also water repellent, ensuring that your hearing aid stays in great working order for longer. Phonak’s Binaural VoiceStream TechnologyTM allows one hearing aid to recognise speech sounds and transmit the speech to both hearing aids in real time. This technology works alongside various other features to give you the best hearing clarity in different challenging listening situations.
An outstanding automatic feature that seamlessly alters your hearing aids to your changing listening environment. AutoSense OS accurately captures the precise listening environment you are in, changing when it needs to, to provide you with a comfortable, seamless listening experience throughout your day.
Speech in Loud Noise
The feature helps you focus in on the single voice you want to hear from a noisy crowd. When noise reaches a level that makes understanding one person in a crowd difficult, StereoZoom, Phonak's excellent microphone management system is automatically activated, allowing you to focus on the voice you want to hear and ignore the noise you don't.
Speech in 360°
Understand speech from any direction. The Speech in 360 feature automatically selects the direction of speech and sends this speech signal from one hearing aid to the other, improving clarity and speech intelligibility without the need for you to face the speaker.
Speech in Wind
Enjoy conversations even on a windy day. When wearing hearing aids wind noise can interfere with your speech understanding and listening comfort. The Speech in Wind feature enhances your ability to understand speech well, even when the wind is blowing.
It is also a multi Programme aid and the programmes include;
- Comfort in Echo, which reduces the noise of echo making it easier to hear speech.
- Speech in Car, which makes it easier to follow conversations when you can’t take your eyes off the road.
- Speech in Loud Noise, reduces the effect of loud noise making it easier to understand speech.
- Music, giving you better clarity when listening to your favourite music.
- Comfort in Noise, reduces loud noise to make your hearing more comfortable.
- Speech in Noise, focuses your hearing to the front, reducing noise behind you.
- Calm Situation, adjusts your hearing aids for comfort and better hearing in quiet environments and one to one conversations.
Speech in Wind
When you are outside, the sound of the wind can drown out all conversation. This programme works out which hearing aid is getting the better speech signal and using the Binaural VoiceStream Technology sends the speech to both hearing aids. This improves speech clarity and also reduces the effect of wind noise.
This programme is designed to make it easier to talk on the telephone. The hearing aid on the telephone side transmits the speech to both hearing aids simultaneously, which improves speech clarity whilst reducing the sound of distractions in the room.
This feature is designed to focus the hearing aids automatically on the clearest speech sound they can pick up. Ideal for noisy environments where there is background conversation.
Rather than just focusing on sounds in front of you, this feature can focus on speech sounds to the side or behind you. This is ideal for situations where you cannot easily turn to face the speaker, such as when you are driving and trying to listen to directions from your passengers.
Directional microphones allow you to pick up the sound from all around you giving you a wide range to hear sound. The ultrazoom feature narrows this range to focus on a small area where someone is speaking. This gives you better speech understanding and reduces the effect of background noise.

Flexcontrol and FlexVolume
The Flexcontrol and FlexVolume feature give the wearer more control over their hearing. It enables the wearer to fine tune their hearing aids for better hearing in different environments.
Listening in assembly halls or places of worship is often a problem for hearing aid wearers due to the sound echoing around the room. This feature recognises the sound echo and removes it, without distorting the other sounds around you.
This feedback elimination feature recognises the feedback sound and removes it before you know it is there. As with the Echoblock feature, it can do this without sound distortion.
This feature recognises continuous background sounds, such as traffic noise through a window, the dishwasher or office photocopier. It can reduce the volume of this sound so that speech is clearer and easier to understand.
Removes the sound of the wind when you are outside.
Sudden loud sounds can be unpleasant or painful for those with hearing loss, particularly when it is amplified by your hearing aid. The SoundRelax feature can soften the impact of sudden loud sounds without distorting the other sounds around you.
Real Ear Sound
This feature allows the hearing aids to mimic the way the ear naturally listens. This, as well as the receiver in canal design, means that it is easier to determine the direction the sound is coming from.
This feature takes the high frequency sounds which are outside your hearing range, such as children’s voices and high pitched sounds, and makes them easier to hear.
Changing the volume or setting on one hearing aid will automatically change the other hearing aid as well. This synchronisation makes sure the hearing aids are always working together.

This feature helps to relieve the symptoms of tinnitus by generating a pleasant sound.

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.
