CROS stands for “Contralateral Routing of Offside Signals”. These Phonak hearing aids are used to help clients with much greater hearing losses in one ear than the other – even people with a “dead ear”.
The two hearing aids are wirelessly connected and sound is transferred from the side with more hearing loss to the better ear. In this way, the wearer can hear clearly from both sides, without having to turn or tilt their head to a sound.

Features & Benefits
When your better ear hears normally – CROS.
A small transmitter, placed behind or inside the ear that cannot benefit from a hearing aid, picks up sound and transfers it wirelessly to a receiver on your normal hearing ear. This will allow you to hear effortlessly even when sounds come from the side where you have no hearing.
When you have a hearing loss in your better ear – BIOCROS
The small transmitter placed behind or inside the ear that cannot benefit from a hearing aid picks up sound and transfers it wirelessly to your ear fitted with a Phonak hearing aid. At the same time this hearing aid amplifies sounds coming directly to this ear. Your hearing and understanding experience will improve and your communication capabilities will be better than ever.
