Bernafon Alpha

The Bernafon Alpha is based on the Demont groups Polaris computer chip. This chip is the most powerful of all the chips you are likely to find in a hearing device. The hearing aids offer super sound quality and perform exceptionally well in Background noise. 

Bernafon uses a system which they call Hybrid technology. It tries to emulate the hearing of animals. Effectively animals can hear sounds 360 degrees but they can change this hearing so they filter unwanted noises and really focus on what’s in front of them for example when they’re hunting.

What this means for you is the hearing aid will maintain a 360 degree noise source fully immersing you in high definition surround sound but should you want to really focus in on one particular event the hearing aid will change the way it is processing and allow you to focus effectively.

This gives great hearing in noise and far less fatigue over traditional hearing aids processing strategies.

The Key Elements of Bernafon Alpha

Hybrid Noise Management

Most hearing aids try to reduce noise constantly, but this will give an unnatural sound. A tinny sound with an echo for example. Or like being in a tunnel without stereo sound. Hybrid noise management is unique in that it allows you to hear everything and only employs noise management strategies when needed.

Will this not make it more difficult to hear in noise? NO! far from it. Hybrid hearing starts from the brain and not the ears. By giving the brain the full sound picture the brain can then work out how to process the sound.

Conventional hearing aids give the brain a filtered picture which has a negative effect on hearing in noise. Hybrid hearing will allow you to keep fresher and stay in those tough situations longer.

Hybrid Sound Processing

The hearing aid from Bernafon will process the incoming sound data based on 48000 calculations a second. From this the hearing aid will then decide whether to keep the sound in high definition 360 degree sound or add some noise filtration. At any time, you can choose whether to connect or disconnect the high definition or noise cancelling. 

Why is this feature great? It gives you two hearing aids in one.

Why do I need 2 hearing aids in one? If you are used to normal sound processing, then moving towards full high definition 360-degree sound might take some time. With the Hybrid technology we can ease you into the better signal processing strategy.

Hybrid Feedback Cancelation

What is that whistling? It’s from your hearing aid! Ever had that said or even heard it? This is known as feedback. When the sound leaks out of your hearing aid and creates a whistling noise this is feedback.

With the Bernafon feedback management system you’re looking at one of the best systems out there and a strong reason why you should choose Bernafon. The system scans itself 126,000 times per second and should it find a leak it will cut it out immediately. No more whistling noises.

Hybrid Balancing

Do your hearing aids sound tinny? Or do your hearing aids sound hollow or have an echo? When you are in noisy situations do your hearing aids sound unnatural? If the answer is yes then your hearing aids are not balancing the sound input very well. Effectively your hearing aids are trying to 2nd guess what your brain needs to hear.

Hybrid balancing uses the alpha chip to its maximum benefit. With 16 x more processing power and 8 times the memory the chip can get sound to your brain unfiltered extremely fast. 

Why is this important? By balancing the sound and processing it extremely quickly we will rid you of that annoying echo and that tinny sound so common in many hearing aids. When in background noise we will allow you to hear the full sound like someone with normal hearing but not drown out your friend because the noise is too loud or the hearing aid cant process the different sounds correctly.

Rechargeable

In only 3 hrs your Bernafon Alpha hearing aids will be ready to go and last a full day of use.

Lithium Ion Rechargeable Hearing aids but with a little twist. Where all other manufacturers use a closed system with no accessibility to the hearing instrument battery Bernafon along with Oticon have an accessible battery.

Why this is important? No one knows for sure what will happen with lithium ion rechargeable hearing aids in 3 to 5 years’ time. Historically rechargeable hearing instruments have been its fair to say a failure. Lithium ion since its inception seems to solve the historical failures BUT we’re not far enough down the line to be certain. With that in mind if you can change a battery in your hearing care professionals’ shop then there are so many advantages.

Another advantage of both the Oticon and Bernafon Lithium Ion Hearing aids is that they use the induction coil for loop systems to charge. This means that although you have a rechargeable hearing aid you don’t lose loop functionality and maintain the clear sound that a hearing telecoil loop system can deliver. Many manufacturers don’t offer both rechargeable hearing instruments with telecoil loop system function.
