Claro 11 CIC
The world's first digital microphone - a new era in audio technology.
The Claro CIC marks the beginning of a new era in audio technology: by developing the world’s first digital microphone Phonak has succeeded in digitizing the entire signal processing path, from the microphone to the receiver.
The result: ultimate shielding from any kind of electromagnetic interference, plus significantly improved dynamic and frequency range.
Integrating a high-performance 16 bit A/D converter into the microphone's housing made it possible to incorporate Claro's unique and sophisticated features into the super-compact CIC housing.
Claro CIC: maximum digital performance in a minimum of space.
