“Packaging and build: The packaging is minimal and exquisitely so. The extra tips filters and manual are behind the felt coated foam holding the earphones. As I gingerly dislodged them from the grooves, I was struck by how tiny they are. I always try to avoid gripping the strain relief as a precaution, but it was difficult considering the size.

“ Audeo Phonak PFE232 Let's start with comfort. I have an ear that doesn't work perfectly with the pfe232.
