The Virto Q90 is Phonak’s newest range of ITE (In the Ear) hearing aids.  They are available in four different custom styles, ITE (In the Ear), ITC (In the Canal) and CIC (Completely in Canal) and IIC (Invisible in Canal) The IIC is also referred to as the Virto Q Nano. You can take a look at the full range of Phonak hearing aids here

The Virto Q is available in three different levels of technology with the Q90 being the top level of the range. It has the highest number of sound processing channels and the most features of all the Virto hearing aids.

You can personalise your Virto Q90 hearing aids with a number of different colour options

The Virto Q90 has many of the same features that are found on the Ambra but what makes this hearing aid the superior model is what’s inside. The Ambra contained Phonak’s previous ‘Spice’ platform technology but this has now been superseded by the new ‘Quest’ platform.

The new Quest sound processing has allowed Phonak to not only improve the speed and sound quality of the hearing aids, but they have been able to introduce some brand new features.

One of the most advanced is Binaural VoiceStream. This feature means that the hearing aids are now capable of communicating with each other to give you an even better hearing experience. By sharing information, the two hearing aids will now work together for your hearing loss.

Acclimatisation Manager

It is often necessary to change the level of amplification in your hearing aids if the environment. This feature detects these changes and adjust the amplification automatically for you but still allows manual adjustment if needed.

Auto SteroZoom

This feature uses the hearing aid’s microphones to keep speech sounds as clear as possible. It will identify and focus on the voice you want to hear and then automatically block out unwanted noise from other directions.

Speech in Wind

Distortion from wind noise can often cause a problem o this feature is designed to help. Using the binaural technology, the hearing aids will detect which side is receiving a clearer sound and stream that signal to the other side.

As mentioned earlier, many of the features from the Ambra have been retained but improved.

20 Channels

More channels means your hearing aids can be tuned precisely for your individual hearing loss by processing many different frequencies

Soundrecover

This feature improves your ability to hear the higher frequencies ensuring a clear and natural sound

Ultrazoom/Stereozoom/Autozoom 

These features are all microphone applications that use the binaural technology to improve both speech capturing and noise cancellation

Soundflow with Flex Control

Soundflow detects small changes in your environment and then smoothly adapts the program automatically to ensure your hearing is always clear and comfortable. The flex control feature allows you to make real time adjustments.

Soundrelax

When an unexpected loud noise occurs, this feature softens the impact to maintain your listening comfort

Whistleblock, Noiseblock, Echoblock and Windblock

These features are all designed to ‘block’ unwanted sounds such as feedback, distortion or background noise.

Acoustically Optimised Vent (AOV)

Occlusion can reduce your listening quality or comfort by making your ears feel blocked. The AOV is designed to minimise this feeling and give you a more natural experience.

Many of the models in the Virto Q90 range are still compatible with wireless accessories allowing you to connect the hearing aids with your different everyday devices.

The Virto Q90 Nano (IIC) is not compatible with the following accessories. It does, however, have its own remote control known as the MiniControl. It is a discreet little device that is small enough to fit on a key ring.
