Bernafon hybrid hearing aid technology

Hybrid Technology™ - for best sound without compromise

Like a hybrid car, Hybrid Technology™ joins two processing approaches into one hybrid system. Because two are better than one, it can act independently or in tandem to strike the right balance in countless listening situations.

Bernafon's latest and most advanced hearing aid technology works even more efficiently. Even in complex listening situations Hybrid Technology™ does not compromise between speech understanding and listening comfort.
