Phonak Audéo Models

Audéo Paradise

Audéo Paradise was launched in August, 2020 with advances in speech understanding, sound processing, Bluetooth connectivity along with many more features. The model is built in the dimensions of 8mm (length) x 12mm (width) x 30.5 (height), which is about the size of a HB #2 pencil. This makes it fairly comfortable to wear. It weighs about 0.04 to 0.08 ounces, making it comfortably light to wear all day.


The features that set Audéo Paradise apart are:

Better Sound Quality

With the Audéo Paradise hearing aids, you can hear clear, natural sounds that are pleasant to your ears. The new sound processing chip by Phonak, PRISM ensures you experience better sound quality.

When in social surroundings, background noises often make it difficult to hold a conversation. This has been made easy with the dynamic noise cancellation feature of Audéo Paradise. It is an automated spatial noise cancellation system, which focuses on the voice and reduces the background noise. As a result, you are easily able to hear and be part of a conversation even during a party, at a mall, while stuck in traffic or any other noisy environment you might find yourself in.

On the contrary, when in quiet surroundings and someone is whispering or talking softly with you, it becomes equally difficult to hear. The Speech Enhancer feature peaks speech signals in quiet situations and allows you to have a better speech understanding.

Talking while walking is another issue that is common when you’re trying to listen through your hearing aids. The newly introduced Motion Sensor Hearing detects movement while you’re talking. It adjusts the microphones and the noise cancellation settings of your hearing aids accordingly. This makes being part of a conversation and hear clearly while walking fairly easy for you.


Better Connectivity

Phonak’s Audéo Paradise offers better connectivity options. Your hearing aids have universal connectivity with Android, iOS, TVs, and other Bluetooth enabled devices.

With Audéo Paradise, you can pair up to eight Bluetooth enabled devices while having two simultaneous active connections.

Adaptive System

With Audéo Paradise, Phonak has implemented its new AutoSense OS 4.0. This trademark operating system of Phonak uses machine learning (artificial intelligence) to detect your surrounding sounds. Over a period of time, it adapts, learns, and adjusts your hearing aids, giving you an increasingly better speech understanding and an enhanced hearing experience.



The Audéo Life, one of the Audéo Paradise models, is the first waterproof hearing aid. You can now wear your hearing aid while engaged in outdoor activities such as swimming, kayaking or even while taking a walk in the rain.
