Phonak CROS and BiCROS

The Phonak CROS is the smallest and most stylish wireless CROS/BiCROS solution designed to meet your individual needs and preferences. Phonak CROS consists of only two parts – a transmitter microphone for the ear that cannot benefit from a hearing instrument, and a receiver hearing instrument on the better hearing ear. This means sound from your poorer hearing side is wirelessly sent to your better ear.

When your better ear hears normally - CROS

CROS
A small transmitter, placed behind or inside the ear that cannot benefit from a hearing aid, picks up sound and transfers it wirelessly to a receiver on your normal hearing ear. This will allow you to hear effortlessly even when sounds come from the side where you have no hearing.

 

 

When you have a hearing loss in your better ear - BiCROS

BiCROS
The small transmitter placed behind or inside the ear that cannot benefit from a hearing aid picks up sound and transfers it wirelessly to your ear fitted with a hearing aid. At the same time this hearing aid amplifies sounds coming directly to this ear. Your hearing and understanding experience will improve and your communication capabilities will be better than ever.
