Bernafon’s hearing instruments pool state-of-the-art technology, comparable, for example, to the latest developments in personal computing. Just as there are desktop PCs, notebooks and electronic agendas, today's standard hearing solutions also come in various styles and designs, including BTE, ITE and RITE systems.
BTE hearing solutions fit behind your ear; they vary significantly in size depending on their power performance. The sound tube, which connects the instrument to the earpiece, can be either a standard or a thin tube.
CIC (Completely-In-The-Canal) / ITC (In-The-Canal):
As the smallest, available hearing systems, completely-in-the-canal (CIC) instruments are virtually invisible. However, people with a severe hearing loss or with a very narrow ear canal may not be able to use them. Instead, they may opt for in-the-canal (ITC), or for in-the-ear (ITE) instruments. ITCs and ITEs are a bit larger yet easier to handle than CICs, because program and volume change can be adjusted manually.
RITE solutions combine the benefits of both BTE and CIC instruments, thus perfecting sound quality and design. Bernafon’s RITE solutions are virtually invisible as the speaker unit is hidden inside the ear canal.
Bernafon’s hearing instruments are cosmetically appealing; their color palette, their fitting options and their user-friendly accessories make it easy to choose the style which best compliments your individuality.
