Bernafon Leox Hearing Aids
Bernafon is a Swiss-based manufacturer. Bernafon is part of the William Demant Group, which includes hearing aid manufacturer Oticon.
Bernafon Leox is Bernafon’s most powerful hearing aid designed for users with severe to profound hearing loss.
Bernafon Leox technology
Bernafon uses single-channel processing, which enables the hearing aids to detect and analyse and processes the sound signal in real-time.
The Dynamic Environment Control System (DECS) platform uses a combination of systems to ensure amplification adjustments happen in real-time. Continuous Environment Detection analyses the sound environment. Dynamic Noise Management reduces background noise while maintaining the speech signal. Active Amplification Control continuously measures the speech-to-noise ratio and directs the information to Dynamic Speech Processing, ensuring the movement is amplified clearly above the background noise.
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 the carer when they turn on their hearing aids.
Bernafon Leox has made-for-iPhone (MFi) technology built in, meaning you can take calls or stream music direct from an iPhone. For Android and other Bluetooth devices, a Bernafon SoundClip-A is required.
Bernafon Leox has two technology levels in the range, Leox 7 and Leox 3. Full features and a comparison can be found on our product page:
