Phonak Brio

Phonak is a Swiss hearing aid manufacturer that, for the past 70 years, has continued to develop innovative and reliable hearing solutions for people with all types of hearing loss.

Phonak describes itself as being a passionate innovator of hearing solutions that positively change lives so that everyone can enjoy life to the full, without being affected by hearing loss. Phonak has created an extensive portfolio of hearing aids from standard behind-the-ear (BTE) models to some of the most modern invisible-in-canal (IIC) devices.

Phonak Brio hearing aids

Phonak has always been dedicated to creating hearing solutions for every type of hearing need and this commitment is evident in the brand’s Brio range of hearing aids. Phonak’s range of Brio devices are available as BTE, receiver-in-ear (RIC) and in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids that provide outstanding hearing, comfort and choice. The Phonak Brio is available in a variety of colours and features cutting-edge technology such as an advanced operating system to greatly improve speech understanding, even in noisy settings. Phonak has continued to develop its Brio technology and extended the range with the introduction of the Phonak Brio 2 R, which has a 30% faster speed than the debut Brio model.

Phonak Brio 3 hearing aid reviews

Phonak subsequently updated its Brio devices with the powerful Brio 3 which delivers a comprehensive range of ITE, BTE and RIC hearing aids for people diagnosed with a mild to profound loss of hearing. The Brio 3 is designed exclusively for Costco and is a fully automatic hearing aid that provides comfortable and effortless listening in a sleek, modern device. Phonak developed the Brio 3 for those hearing aid users who demand the best possible style, comfort and hearing performance from their hearing solutions.

The Phonak Brio 3 price is towards the top end of the hearing aid market.


The Phonak Brio 3 Bluetooth-enabled hearing aids provide much more than just excellent sound quality and enhanced hearing. The devices offer many features that will enhance your everyday experience of being a hearing aid user. Some of the features include:

  • Automatic processing: Enables your hearing aids to analyse sound as it occurs. The device then immediately responds by automatically adjusting the settings to deliver an optimal listening experience
  • Car programme: Designed to help people with hearing loss who struggle to understand speech while in a car. This function lowers broadband noise from inside the car to provide a more listening environment and reduce your listening effort
  • Loud Noise programme: Even when you are in the most challenging noise situations, the Brio 3 can improve speech understanding by as much as 60%. The feature allows you to focus on a single voice even in complex sound settings and can adapt to your changing environments, when you are on the move
  • Wind and Noise Block: Wind noise is automatically detected by the hearing aids and suppressed and reduces any uncomfortable noise in your environment
