Bernafon Inizia / Carista 3
In 2010, Bernafon launched an entry level range of hearing aids called Inizia. It is available in 2 levels of technology, the Inizia 3 or the Inizia 1, of which the Inizia 3 is the higher level in the range. Inizia hearing aids are suitable for mild to profound levels of hearing loss and are also available in a range of different styles and colours to suit your needs. Styles Include: BTE (Behind The Ear) ITE (In The Ear) ITC (In The Canal) CIC (Completely In Canal) RITE (Receiver In The Ear) Bernafon hearing aids are different to many other manufacturers in regards to the way they process sound. Most hearing aids have a fixed number of channels which allow the hearing aid to be programmed for your individual hearing loss. Bernafon hearing aids use their ChannelFree™ technology which continuously adjusts the gain rather than splitting the signal into different channels. Other features include:
- AFC (Adaptive Feedback Cancellation) – This feature helps to eliminate any whistling noises that may occur.
- Adaptive Directionality – The microphones on these hearing aids will automatically adjust, depending on where the speech is coming from.
- Adaptive Noise Reduction – This feature helps to manage unwanted background noise so, keeping speech sounds clearer.
- Data Logging – This feature records the activity of your hearing aids allowing your audiologist to analyse it and make sure you are getting the best out of your hearing aids.
- Lifestyle Profile – This allows you to truly personalise the hearing aids. The features of this device can be customised to suit your individual needs and lifestyle.
