About Soundly

Soundly is an independently owned hearing health research tool. Our reviews are conducted by hearing aid wearers and audiologists. We physically review the leading hearing aids on the market for sound quality, comfort, durability, and more. Our review process starts with hands-on unboxing and days, weeks, or months of wear. We also record live sound demos using a calibrated binaural microphone (read more here). We experiment with backend fitting software for prescription products and use test box measures to measure prescriptive accuracy and flexibility. Our work is funded through reader support.

That's why we've meticulously crafted the Phonak Naida Lumity with a sleek, modern design and colors that fits seamlessly into your lifestyle. Slip it on, and let it enhance your world without detracting from your personal style.

Phonak offers a wide range of options for you to truly tailor your hearing aids to your unique preferences.

Additionally, Phonak Naida Link hearing aids are compatible with Advanced Bionics cochlear implants, benefitting those who rely on both technologies for their hearing needs.

What Makes Naida Lumity Special

The PRISM chip in the Naida Lumity offers innovative technology that takes processing and connectivity possibilities to a whole new level. Naida Lumity devices allow hands-free phone calls using both Android and iPhone. The device has impressive listening tech onboard, including a motion sensor that focuses sound when you are seated and gives 360° listening when you walk around.

The Naida Lumity improves on previous Phonak generations with increased clarity in background noise. This advanced technology is especially helpful for those who struggle to hear in complex, dynamic environments thanks to Comfort in Echo, Speech in Car, and Speech in Loud Noise programs.

Thanks to the Speech Enhancer feature, you'll even hear soft talkers or grandchildren, ensuring you capture the true essence of conversations. Worried about windy days? The WindBlock technology shields you from gusts of wind while still delivering exceptional sound quality.

Our Take

Phonak is one of the best options out there for Bluetooth connectivity, especially for Android users. We love their powerful processing capability in the Paradise PRISM chip and smooth listening experience. Patients report great sound quality in addition to their user-friendly app.

However, before selecting Phonak, there are a few other points to consider. If you’re looking for a “Find My Hearing Aid” feature, it’s not available at this time with Phonak. Many patients with more severe hearing loss, such as Phonak Naida wearers, may find this an essential feature. Additionally, with the larger processing power comes a larger battery for those who opt for the disposable battery option with telecoil.

Pros 👍
  • Great sound quality
  • Industry-leading connectivity
  • Fantastic assistive technology options (Roger)

Cons 👎
  • Battery size for disposable (675 battery)
  • No Find My Hearing Aids - drawback for more severe hearing loss
