Some Important Headline


Truly Invisible Hearing Aids

Phonak Virto Nano

The Phonak Nano is more than just a tiny hearing aid. It is the perfect combination of hearing performance and minimum size. Phonak produce a custom crafted hearing aid to fit entirely in your ear canal, using computer-aided design and the latest generation of advanced materials. Comfort is guaranteed while delivering the typical outstanding Phonak sound quality.

Due to the deep position in the ear canal, the Phonak Nano, like other hearing aids of its type, uses the natural shape of the ear to transmit sound to the microphone which means excellent directional hearing, as well as virtual invisibility.

Is the Phonak Nano really invisible?

The Nano sits deep in the ear canal, the front of the hearing device is in permanent shadow because of the depth it sits at. It is deep enough into the ear canal to be to all intents and purposes is an invisible hearing aid. 

Who is the Phonak Nano suitable for?

The Nano is not suitable for everyone for two reasons. The device will only fit certain dimensions of ear canal, if your ear canal is too narrow or has too tight a bend it might not be suitable. Other contra indications are things such as excessive waxy ear canals or perforated eardrums. If you face these issues, the Nano may not be the product for you. In these cases other discreet hearing aids may be more advisable to consider.

Is the Phonak Nano a long wear aid?

The Nano is not a long wear hearing aid. It is designed to be a daily wear hearing aid, it should be removed at night when sleeping and inserted in the morning for the day.

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.
