Thread: New Bernafon - MFI?

  1. #1

    Default New Bernafon - MFI?

    I'm guessing the new Bernafon offering will be a made for iPhone aid like the new Sonic:

    How long have you had the Bernafon? It is fairly recent tech. I'm guessing that Bernafon won't have a new aid until Oticon finally gets its duck in a row.

    I visited the link- and from the product brochure I am copy pasting the below:

    “The first Sonic hearing aid featuring the revolutionary SoundDNA platform, Enchant delivers daily sounds in a brand new way. Powerful technologies automatically detect and adapt to your auditory world, keeping speech clear, noise to a minimum, and sound interactions remarkably natural.”

    “The frustration of hearing loss isn’t that words disappear. It’s that the soft sounds get lost and noise gets in the way. When you miss details in speech, it takes away meaning and can lead to confusion. Enchant works to clear that up. New Speech Variable Processing with SmartCompress preserves the nuances of speech— the soft and loud sounds that occur in every word. » Speech sounds are treated with priority, so you feel more connected to people » SmartCompress intelligently detects noise and controls its amplification » You’ll hear more complete words and vocal expressions more comfortably.”

    Sounds like maybe some of the current Oticon technology is flowing downstream? and Yes - Bernafon is about to launch a new product as well. My source for this information is a Google Search of news with the search term "Bernafon".

    I notice that BuyHear.com is now selling the Sonic Enchant 100 (non-Tcoil and Tcoil versions) for $3,200. They're listed on the same page as the Oticon OPNs, where the lowest price OPN 3 is $3,300. They're also listed in their own page as well on BuyHear.
