Phonak is known for good quality and they show this again with the Marvel series. On an audiological level, the Marvel hearing aids are very good. Their strength is the automatic programme. The hearing aids adjust a number of features when they observe a change in acoustic conditions. For example, the beam becomes narrower in busy company. With the MyPhonak app, you can temporarily change or save some settings as a new programme. Unfortunately, you cannot yet link this to a specific location.
Since the Marvel series has been on the market, Phonak now also allows direct streaming. Not only with the iPhone, but also with many Android phones. Until recently, other hearing aid brands had a big head start on Phonak. Direct streaming now also takes place in stereo and produces a very nice sound. However, the quality and stability depends partly on your smartphone type. Also unique is the Bluetooth function to connect the Marvel hearing aids directly to your TV.
The M90 is the most advanced model in the series and the only one that offers echo reduction. Ever get into a room with reverberation? Then this is the model for you. In addition, intelligibility in the most difficult situations is by far the best with the M90 compared to the M70 or M50.
This is the smallest model in the series as it contains a 312 battery. You will need to replace the battery approximately every 4-6 days. This model is also available with a ring lead, but the hearing aid will then be slightly larger.
Pros and cons
A very pleasant cooperation
I first had my Phonac Marvel M90 device at an audicien for a test, but found them way too expensive. Through their website I came across oogvoororen.nl. The service and quality of the ear measurement at oogvoororen is significantly more professional and the price significantly lower. Bob has helped me very well to find the right settings. I now have a beautiful and very natural addition to my hearing whereby I can hear everything again, especially in conversations. A big 10 for BOB Aukes.
Speaks well, but put on the market too hastily. Needs a lot of work.
The device is a huge improvement over my 5 year old one. But unfortunately - as soon as it is a bit noisy, like outside, in the train or in the supermarket - it is very difficult to call. Your conversation partner either asks you to call back, or asks every sentence 'what are you saying'. The reason is that you use 'hands free', the microphones in your hearing aid. But these are behind your ears, and not - as usual with this kind of handsfree solutions - in front of your ears. You can't switch it off and, as with my previous hearing aid, only listen via your hearing aid and use the microphone of your telephone.
The echo attenuation works, but as soon as someone starts talking, the hearing aid disables the echo attenuation, and switches to speech mode, and then seems to actually amplify the echo.
Very good hearing aids
I went for this device mainly because of the sound streaming via bluetooth with an Android mobile. The sound comes directly into the hearing aids;
Furthermore, the device is very good to understand people in large groups with a lot of noise, which is very nice. The application of Phonak could be better, the devices are unfortunately regularly not recognized by the application.
