Phonak Communications

Phonak was founded in Zurich in 1947 (at that time under the name "AG für Elektroakustik"). Only three years later, the company brought out its first wearable hearing aid. Phonak has been constantly setting standards in the area of hearing solutions ever since.

Phonak Communications AG was founded in 1992 in Courgevaux near Murten to expand operations in the area of wireless communication. In the meantime, Phonak Communications AG has become the Sonova Group’s competence center for miniaturized, wireless technologies. In addition to its Murten site, it also operates in Halmstad, Sweden.

Our teams have many years’ experience of high-tech microelectronics, micro-mechanics and firmware, and use this experience in developing and producing ultra-miniaturized hearing and communication systems. Our advanced digital signal-processing technology also ensures that customers only hear what they really need to hear.

The latest achievement of Phonak Communications´ highly-skilled engineering team is the SWORD™ Wireless-Chip, which is the core of all Phonak's Marvel hearing aids .

By combining our expertise in wireless technologies, their platforms (Bluetooth® and Roger™) and hearing technology, we develop new solutions to produce practical innovations in communication and hearing protection systems that can satisfy our most demanding customers around the world. All of these unique, ultra-modern solutions are characterized by market-leading sound quality, optimal wearing comfort and high-quality design.

Phonak Communications AG is part of the Sonova Group, a global leader in hearing solutions. The Sonova Group is represented in over 90 countries and employs around 15,000 people. As a leading provider of innovative solutions for hearing aids, Sonova is particularly well-known for its wireless communication systems for audiology applications and the development of advanced cochlear implant systems.
