PhonoClear is an ITE device. This means the hearing device is worn In The Ear. These devices are typically visible by others from most directions, however they provide better hearing solutions than the CIC devices.
Multi Directional Microphones help users hear from more directions than just what is in front on them. While the performance is not as good as a High Quality Behind the Ear Hearing Device, it is a step in the right direction.

Pre – Set Modes – PhonoClear offers NO Pre-Set Modes to enhance hearing in unique environments. Crowded restaurants and cocktail parties can be difficult for some, PhonoClear provides zero additional settings to help in this regard.
Visibility – PhonoClear is a ITE device, meaning it is worn in the ear, but visible to most who are looking at you. They offer tan devices to mimic skin tone for some, but for most it will not match well and can be seen by others.
