PROS: Phonak Audeo 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 the rechargeable lithium-ion battery it is as simple as plugging in your mobile phone to charge overnight. The Phonak Audeo B-R is fully automatic and will adjust its settings in different environments to give you the best hearing experience. In noisy areas the Audeo B-R devices will zoom in on a single voice to help improve speech understanding. The Phonak Audeo 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 Audeo B-R only comes in a RIC behind-the-ear style.
OVERALL rating (out of 5 stars):
Who would this be ideal for? The Phonak Audeo 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 listening environments.
