Bernafon Hearing Aids
We found 10 Hearing Aids
Bernafon are a small Swiss company owned by Demant A/S. They also own the hearing aid manufacturer, Oticon. They were founded in 1946 by Hans Gfeller. Interestingly Demant A/S also own high street company Hidden Hearing so its likely that if you’ve been for a hearing consultation there, you've been recommended either Oticon or Bernafon products. Bernafon are perceived to be a lower cost alternative to Oticon however this doesn’t mean you are receiving less quality.
Bernafon are a global brand and are currently available in over 70 countries worldwide. They use they're famous 'channel free' technology to create some of the most natural sounding hearing aids on the market today. Regularly at the forefront of innovation and quality, Bernafon hearing aids are typically Swiss in their reliability and durability. They have created a hearing aid portfolio to suit any preference and they have all the features you’d expect of a hearing aid including: rechargeability, bluetooth facilities etc. They are a nice sleek design that is both discreet and durable. Bernafon have also released a range of wireless accessories for each product to incorporate a diverse range to suit all needs.
Bernafon Product Range
Below are some of the ranges that Bernafon offer in the range.
The Leox is Bernafon's latest product line released in 2019. Its specifically designed for those with sever to profound hearing loss. Containing Bernafon's True Environment Processing the hearing aids focus on helping those with profound hearing loss with better speech understanding and help with understanding in complex environments. The Leox also facilities the latest wireless technology and comes with bluetooth capabilities to stream with iOS devices.
The Viron Range is the latest range released by Bernafon in 2019. It’s the first on the market to contain the True Environment processing facility. The latest chip provides a much faster sound process and a rapid detection of different sound within the environment. The sound is clear, crisp, and natural. A new update to the feedback cancellation system means that whistling and noises from the hearing aid are a thing of the past.
The Viron comes in a range of different products including Bernafon's first true Li-ion built in rechargeable option. Using the patented 'Channel Free' technology the Viron allows the user to find the most natural sounds in the environment rather than using the hearing aids environment classification system. A few statistics include:
Acoustic Feedback measurements at 126,000 times per second
32,000 data points processed per second to detect the environment
Acoustic Feedback measured at 126,000 times per second
Dynamic Environment Control System (DECS) - The engine behind Bernafon's quality sound
Bernafon currently only offer the in a receiver in canal option (RIC). We expect they will expand on this in the very near future.
Released by Bernafon in 2018 the Zerena product range was their first to contain 'Made for iPhone' technology. They released the 2.4GHz bluetooth technology to offer the user the freedom to control their own hearing aids at the touch of a button. It also means effortless streaming of music and audio directly from the smartphone to your hearing devices. They are also the first product to benefit from the DECS technology which has been the cornerstone of Bernafon's future models.
The Zerena come in all formats, meaning that there is a product to suit all preferences. They build quality is strong and durable, just what you would expect with Swiss engineering.
The Juna range of products have been a fantastic success for Bernafon and are currently still available on the market (Although we suspect not for much longer). Released in 2014 they have been a firm favourite amongst hearing aid wearers due to their smooth sound processing and natural speech quality.
They contain facilities to automatically switch environments to give the user the best quality sound they can get. Possessing the Channel Free technology they provide the same quality sound renowned with a Bernafon product. As good as these have been we would recommend stepping up to the Viron for better quality sound.
