New Bolero Belong Range Has Rechargeable BTE Hearing Aid Option
Phonak have just launched their new Bolero Behind The Ear Hearing Aid Range which is on the latest Belong platform. For the first time ever, it is to have a Lithium-Ion powered rechargeable hearing aid option. It will be the first of its kind within the industry and the first time that Phonak will have a rechargeable BTE.
Bolero Belong Hearing Devices
As we said, as part of the launch of the new Bolero Belong platform of BTE hearing aids, they have launched a lithium-ion rechargeable BTE, the Bolero B-PR. It has been very much anticipated and expected since they introduced the Audeo B-R.
It is the first Lithium-ion rechargeable BTE to the market and the first Phonak BTE hearing aid range with a rechargeable option. They say that like the Audeo B-R, the power pack will deliver 24 hours of hearing with one simple charge with up to 80 minutes wireless streaming time.
The P style is quite a powerful aid and can be expected to be fitted to people with up to severe hearing loss. It will mean that people with complex needs will be able to use a traditional type BTE with a volume control, push button and telecoil that is rechargeable.
The Bolero range, as always, will be a full model line up with four Bolero B models. They will include B-M, B-P, B-SP, and the rechargeable B-PR. In line with the Audeo, It will run on the new improved AutoSense OS and will come in the usual four levels of technology. There was no word on the availability of the rechargeable device in the 30 level of technology but I would assume that as is the case with the Audeo, it will not be available in the lowest tech level.
What are the key features of The Bolero Belong PR
- Rechargeable lithium-ion power cell
- 24 hours continuous use with up to 5 hours streaming
- Easy charging
- Unique OneShell design
- The rechargeable device will only available in the 90, 70 and 50 level of tech
The range will soon be launched in the United Kingdom and will be the second range available on the new Belong platform from Phonak.
