We take new product releases very seriously because sometimes a product doesn’t always live up to its expectations. With so many multi-billion dollar companies out there competing for your business, it can be tempting for them to cut some corners.

One company that has steered clear of this kind of behaviour is Phonak. They focus on manufacturing top-tier products, and the proof is in the pudding. This year, they have released more new products than anyone else – a sure sign they are looking to accommodate everyone who struggles with a hearing loss.

These new Lumity 90s were released in August 2022 and have been the talk of the town since. They are inspired by Phonak’s Paradise line, which was released in 2020 to high praises.

There’s much to live up to here, but we think Phonak is up to the challenge. 

Here is our review as well as detailing all the specifics that make this such a popular and helpful hearing aid. 

My Thoughts on Phonak Lumity 90.

Phonak Lumity 90 hearing aid

I don’t think Phonak ever stops working on improving. Each time they come out with a new product line, it’s not just a small upgrade, its an overhaul. They also are very thoughtful when they consider the various users of their hearing aids.

 

They have products for children, those with profound hearing loss, and people with super busy lifestyles.

 

I love when a hearing aid manufacturer offers variety and that’s exactly what Phonak does!

What Are the New Features?

AutoSense 5.0

This is an advanced technology that has us all very excited. This programmed feature improves your hearing no matter where you are, as it adjusts on its own.

It scans your environment 700 times per second! Using this information, it automatically adjusts for you constantly. There are seven different programs that it rotates through to find you the most optimal setting.

ActiveVent

Another breakthrough in technology, ActiveVent will help you in crowded and quiet areas. It’s a tiny device that regulates sound to your ear canal.

In louder situations, it automatically closes to help the hearing aid focus on the primary speakers. During quiet times, the vent opens to allow more sound to be processed by both your hearing aid and natural hearing abilities.

Advanced Charger

Having to charge your hearing aids can be frustrating, and we hear complaints regarding this aspect all the time. Phonak has completely solved this issue by providing long-lasting batteries and an easy and effective charger.

Similar to AirPods, the charging station included with your Lumity hearing aids is wireless. They sit in their custom docking station, so they are also protected while charging.

A full charge only takes three hours and if you are out for longer than expected, bring the carrying case; it also charges your hearing aids. You can get three full charges from your case to avoid rushing home or carrying a home charger with you.

Improved Look & Feel

Phonak has always provided an ergonomically correct product that encourages comfort, and these are no different. You’ll find that after a short time, you even forget you’re wearing them.

They’re also available in a variety of colours. Black, champagne, beige, chestnut, sandalwood and two shades of grey are offered so you can match them to your favourite outfit or have them blend in with your hair and skin tone.

Who Will Benefit the Most from Phonak’s Lumity 90?

With so much technology packed into this small device, anyone with a knack for tech will love these. The connection to the app allows the user to have access to settings and make adjustments whenever they like.

It’s also great for active people due to its size and automated adjustment features. No matter where your day takes you, these prescription hearing aids will adapt to provide you with the best hearing capabilities.

For those who are really active, you can opt for the Audéo Lumity Life hearing aids, which are waterproof.

No need to take out your hearing aids for a quick dip in the pool anymore. Nor do you have to worry about getting caught in the rain or sweating on them. They are prepared to go wherever you are.

Final Verdict

This product has us excited because we know how many people it will help. It’s also exciting to see what the next 5 to 10 years will bring since it seems we are moving at a swift pace.

We review multiple great products to help our patients decide which devices in hearing aid technology will best benefit their unique needs: the smartphone-savvy Jabra Enhance Plus and the comfortably reliable Bernafon Alpha 9 hearing aids are two more that I recommend to patients to take a look at. 

No matter which product you choose, your journey to better hearing always starts with a comprehensive hearing assessment. With this, we can identify your specific needs and match you with the most efficient product and settings possible.
