PROS: Phonak Audéo B-R was designed by Phonak to make hearing in all situations effortless. One of its best advantages is that the device does not require batteries, instead users just place the devices in a charger for 3 hours to get 24 hours of hearing. With a rechargeable lithium-ion battery it’s just like plugging in your mobile phone to charge overnight. The Phonak Audéo B-R is fully automatic and will adjust its settings in different environments to give you the best hearing outcome. In noisy areas the Audéo B-R devices will zoom in on a single voice to help improve speech understanding. The Phonak Audéo B-R is also wireless compatible and can be easily connected to your mobile phone and television for an even clearer listening experience.
CONS: Due to the recharging ability, the Phonak Audéo B-R only comes in a RIC behind-the-ear style.
OVERALL rating (out of 5 stars): 4.5/5
What type of person would this be ideal for: The Phonak Audéo B-R would be perfect for an individual who does not want the fuss of changing batteries. They would also work well for someone who is in lots of different noisy environments.
