The Phonak Audeo M Marvel was released to much fanfare late in 2018 due to its universal binaural connectivity. Before Marvel, hearing aids typically streamed binaurally from Android or Apple’s iOS - but not both. Some had to use an additional accessory to get the sound from Android phones to the hearing aids. When Phonak introduced this hearing device, many considered it the first all-in-one device because it finally solved the compatibility issues with other models. Phonak described it as ‘love at first sound’ and so far the user feedback has been overall positive. In addition to the phone streaming, it also had rechargeability using the longer-lasting lithium-ion battery technology.
Features of Phonak Marvel:
- Stereo bluetooth streaming
- Moisture resistance

Wearers can now enjoy a full day of hearing aid functionality, including streaming, with a single three hour charge.
The Marvel is available in M30, M50, M70 and M90. The M90 is considered their premium level product and contains all of the features of the Marvel and it’s SWORD platform.
