Binaural VoiceStream Technology™ 
The Best Technology for Hearing with Two Ears

AB provides outstanding speech understanding in any environment with the most advanced technology for hearing with two devices, one on each ear. The groundbreaking Phonak Binaural VoiceStream Technology™ in your Naída CI Q90 sound processors doesn’t simply process sounds at the same time, like other systems. It gives your processors the unique ability to communicate with each other so they can work together, automatically and in real time. They intelligently focus on the sound you want to hear and deliver it wirelessly to both ears simultaneously while significantly reducing unwanted noises.

StereoZoom feature

enables the microphones on both processors to work together as opposed to using the microphones on just one processor1,2, to focus on the speaker directly in front of you to improve understanding in extreme noise.

ZoomControl feature

allows you to effortlessly focus on a speaker in front of, beside or behind you.

DuoPhone feature

automatically streams calls from any kind of telephone to both ears at the same time for easier conversations on the phone compared to hearing in one ear alone.3

QuickSync feature

offers the unique convenience of onetouch control, so any volume or program adjustment you make on one processor is automatically applied to the other.
