The hearing aids in the Phonak Q90 range have the highest number of channels (20) and programmes (5) in our range; simply put this means they offer a greater level of fine tuning and support for your individual hearing loss and the specific day to day situations you find yourself in (a busy restaurant, watching the television, the theatre, business meetings). The new Phonak Quest Range also introduces some powerful new features based on their unique Binaural VoiceStream Technology®.

To learn more about channels and programmes and the 19 extra features available in this range (and more importantly how they can help you hear better) tale a look at the details below. 

  • 5 Year Warranty
    5 Year Warranty

    This hearing aid comes complete with a 5 year warranty which covers your hearing aid for malfunction, breakdown or faulty workmanship during that time. 

  • Channels
    Channels

    Simply put, the number of channels determines how finely your hearing aid can be tuned to best suit your individual level of hearing loss. The more channels the hearing aid has, the more it can be finely tuned to give you the most natural and effective hearing experience.

  • Manual Programmes
    Manual Programmes

    Programmes are memory settings within the hearing aid, set up for you by your Hearing Aid Audiologist, that allow the hearing aid to operate at its optimum potential within specific listening environments. For example, if you regularly attend the theatre your Hearing Aid Audiologist could set a ‘Theatre programme’ which would have the ideal settings to help you hear the actors on the stage. Another programme might be set for you to listen to your TV whilst another might be optimized for use in noisy restaurants where you could need more amplification with a higher level of background noise reduction.

    With manual programmes you have to manually switch the hearing aid to the appropriate programme yourself to get the tailored support you need for that specific environment.

  • Speech in Wind
    Speech in Wind

    The latest feature to be introduced by Phonak; the Speech in Wind feature provides superior protection from the interference of wind noise. It automatically detects the ear most affected by the wind and transfers the sound from the good ear to it; improving your listening comfort when outdoors. 

  • Adaptive Directionality
    Adaptive Directionality

    Directional microphones prioritise the sounds coming from a certain direction while suppressing background noise from other directions.

    Adaptive directionality means that the hearing aid will take cues from the environment and focus microphones to the area where they are needed. 

  • FlexControl
    FlexControl

    FlexControl personalises the automatic system, and rather than making sounds louder or softer, FlexControl changes many of the settings in your hearing instruments to adapt to the situation and make sounds more intelligible or more comfortable instead of just louder or softer. It is as easy to handle as a standard volume control.

  • EchoBlock
    EchoBlock

    EchoBlock improves your listening experience in reverberant environments like large assembly halls, places of worship and rooms with reflective surfaces. EchoBlock works by instantly removing the disturbing reflections of the reverberant sound, while the speech signal you want to hear will sound natural and undistorted.

  • Fixed Directionality
    Fixed Directionality

    Directional microphones prioritise the sounds coming from a certain direction while suppressing background noise from other directions.

    Fixed directionality means that microphones are fixed in positions where the majority of important sounds come from – often a wide arc in front of you, generally referred to as a ‘beam’.

  • Selective Directionality
    Selective Directionality

    Directional microphones prioritise the sounds coming from a certain direction while suppressing background noise from other directions.

    Selective directionality gives you the ability to choose in which direction to focus the microphones on your hearing aid and so your hearing. It’s perfect for instances where you may not be facing a speaker such as listening to a passenger in a car or where the sound source is coming consistently from one direction. This feature can be selected manually or often with the use of a remote control. 

  • Noise Reduction: Premium
    Noise Reduction: Premium

    This feature enables you to focus on the important sounds, like speech while the hearing aid reduces the distraction of unwanted background noise, making it easier for you to hear in noisy environments.

    It can enhance speech audibility in even in the most complex listening environments.

  • FlexVolume
    FlexVolume

    This sophisticated volume control is based on your individual hearing loss so that making sounds louder and softer is accurately suited to your needs.

  • Noise Relaxer
    Noise Relaxer

    This is essentially a process within the hearing aid that detects sudden, jarring noises, like a door slamming or clattering dishes, and makes the sound ‘softer’ and  more bearable, while maintaining your ability to hear other, important sounds.

  • Wind Noise Reduction
    Wind Noise Reduction

    Hearing aids with wind noise reduction automatically sense wind conditions and suppress related noise for comfort. They’re particularly useful for people who spend a lot of time outdoors, whether walking in the countryside, by the sea, or playing golf.

  • Natural Ear Sound
    Natural Ear Sound

    This helps you to determine which direction sound is coming from.

  • Binaural Telephone Mode
    Binaural Telephone Mode

    This feature makes using the telephone with your hearing aid simple and stress free. As soon as the phone is held close to the ear the signal is heard in both ears. Background noise is reduced and speech is made clear. 

  • High Frequency Recover
    High Frequency Recover

    In the majority of cases of hearing loss, high frequency sounds are affected, so people struggle to hear sounds like birdsong, children’s voices. High frequency recover is an effective way to extend a person’s range of hearing by restoring a proportion of these high-frequency sounds so that even people with moderate to severe hearing loss can hear more of what they want to hear.

  • Feedback Manager
    Feedback Manager

    Feedback is the name given to the whistling sound that you may have heard coming from, typically, older or analogue hearing aids. Feedback occurs when sound leaves the hearing aid receiver and loops back through your hearing aid microphone, where it's amplified a second time into a whistle or squeal. The feedback suppression feature identifies this feedback and suppresses it, providing you with better quality, more comfortable hearing – and no whistling!

  • Synchronisation
    Synchronisation

    If you wear two hearing aids, then just one touch on the programme selection button or volume control on one hearing aid results in instant, identical changes in the other hearing aid. This ensures that the volume and programme settings are always balanced, with minimal effort from you. 

  • Datalogging
    Datalogging

    The hearing aid remembers and ‘logs’ your usage patterns, for example the settings and programmes you use, how long you wear your hearing aid for etc. allowing your Hearing Aid Audiologist to better adjust and personalise your settings at your follow up appointments.

  • Remote Control
    Remote Control

    This small hand held control (can be in the format of a pager, watch or key fob device) allows you to alter the settings of your hearing aid, like increasing the volume or switching programmes easily and discreetly.
