I just had AN surgery on 11/30/21 and I lost hearing in my right ear actually a few months prior to surgery. I opted to be fitted for the Phonak Audeo P90 CROS hearing aid system. This is the system that broadcasts sound from your deaf ear over to your good ear so you can "hear" out of both sides of your head. As a side note, I've been very pleased with this set up and I would recommend these hearing aids to others that have single sided hearing loss.

My question is when will they launch a Smartphone app for this device? Phonak has a Smartphone app for their normal hearing aids, but the CROS system is excluded and there is no info on their site about timing of launch of an app. My Audiologist told me that she heard in would be in January 2022. I'm just wondering if anyone here might have any insights?

The app is very cool because it let's you make volume changes and other changes on the fly.

Thanks for any insights anyone may have and if you are considering these hearing aids, I recommend!

Hi MariettaJoker,

Well, we are past January and into February.  Have you heard anymore about the Smartphone app being launched for your CROS system?

Even though my ENT doctor assures me that there is not sufficient evidence that the Bluetooth technology used to communicate between the hearing aids and the smartphones causes any brain problems, I am still a little hesitant to connect my smartphone to anything around my brain, even earpods.  So, maybe it's a good thing if they have not released a smartphone app for your hearing aid yet.  But then again, I am probably overreacting. I get anxious when no one knows the cause of my AN, and then I can imagine all kinds of possibilities.

Let us know what you find out about the release of the app!

Don,

I just checked today and still no update from Phonak on the CROS iPhone app. I’ll keep checking and advise the group when I see it pop up.

I spoke with my audiologist in Cartersville, Ga., yesterday, and she is advising me to get the Oticon CROS system because she feels it is the best one for me with my particular issues.  The Phonak Audeo P90 seems to be much more popular, at least judging by what I can see of YouTube videos (which is a poor way to judge popularity, I know).  But as popular as the Phonak CROS system is, you would think that they would have updated the phone app by now!

I won't be fitted for the Oticon CROS system until March 15 so I won't be able to comment on it until after that date.  I am looking forward to not missing words spoken to me on my bad ear side.

I checked with Phonak support this week on the status of the smartphone app for the CROS hearing aids, this was their response....

Phonak does still plan to release an app for the latest CROS system in 2022.  At the moment, we do not have a confirm date of when that app will be release. We apologize for the wait if it has been an issue.
