Bernafon Alpha Hearing Aids Technology

Using Bernafon’s fastest chip and channel-free processing, the Bernafon Alpha can detect, analyse, and process sound in real-time. Its Hybrid Technology augments speech understanding and listening comfort.

The Hybrid Technology in Bernafon Alpha consists of four hybrid processing blocks. Each combines two smoothly interacting counterparts to effectively perform in any listening situation.

Hybrid Noise Management: 2 systems working in tandem.

Smart Directionality continuously and independently adjusts its directional patterns to identify speech when noise is present.

Intelligent Noise Reduction—When smart directionality cannot sufficiently improve the audibility of speech in noise, intelligent noise reduction activates and actively reduces the background noise.



Hybrid Balancing: The hybrid balancer aims to allow for sound amplification that is personalised to the user’s preferences. It has two systems that can run independently or together:

Speech Balancer boosts speech signals in the presence of noise. The amount of boost applied can be adjusted to the user’s personal preferences.

Noise Balancer delivers higher listening comfort in noisy situations and is customisable to the user’s sensitivity to noise.



Hybrid Sound Processing uses two systems that aim to ensure there is no compromise in sound quality and speech audibility:

Time Domain Processing – gives fast speech signals the correct amount of gain.

Frequency Domain Processing – works for slower sounds such as noise and can recognise and isolate the specific frequency of the noise.



Hybrid Feedback Canceller – Proactive sound manager with static and dynamic feedback systems. These systems work together and monitor the excellent signal up to 126,000 times per second and actively remove any chance of feedback (whistling) before it has a chance to become audible.





Bernafon Alpha Hearing Aids APP

The Bernafon EasyControl-A App allows users to control and adjust their Bernafon hearing aids. The App also enables users to connect their hearing aids to other devices using the (IFTTT) protocol. For example, a user could get a notification in their hearing aids when the doorbell rings or a text message could be sent to a carer when they turn on their hearing aids. The app also has a useful Find My Hearing Aid tool, which works through the phone’s GPS.



Bernafon Alpha is made for iPhone (MFi) and the latest Android phones (Android 10 and above), meaning you can take calls or stream music directly from your mobile.

Bernafon Alpha works as high-quality stereo headphones operating a stable connection with minimal power consumption.

For older Android and other Bluetooth devices, a Bernafon SoundClip-A is required.




Bernafon Alpha Hearing Aids Colours



Bernafon Alpha is available in the new Midnight Blue colour.

Nine other colour options are available with Bernafon Alpha to reflect skin tones and hair colours: Midnight Blue, Base shell metallic anthracite, and a choice of antique bronze, metallic anthracite, metallic silver, or sand beige.
