Bernafon’s Juna 9 Pico RITE offers a discreet-sized hearing aid at a premium-level technology. This hearing aid offers an automatic program and comes in a range of natural colours to blend in with hair or skin tones. Juna 9 also offers a multi-function push button, wireless connectivity (with additional accessories), and comes with Bernafon’s proprietary ChannelFree processing, which is capable of identifying and amplifying each individual phoneme in speech to achieve maximum speech clarity. Binaural coordination ensures ease of use when using on-board controls, as well as listening ease as this feature synchronises information about your listening environment to further improve your ability to hear speech in quiet or noisy environments. iVC – a clarity vs. comfort volume control – is also on offer in this hearing aid. This hearing aid can be fitted with 3 different receiver strengths, suitable for mild up to profound hearing losses, while still being cosmetically discreet.
For those who enjoy listening to music or watching movies, Juna 9 Pico RITE offers a Live Music Plus & Cinema program to further enhance your listening experience in these situations. A Comfort in Airplane program is also a feature of this hearing aid, as is Reverb Reduction, for ease of listening in reverberant listening environments (a feature not offered by many other manufacturers).
While the multi-function push button gives the end-user control to change volume, programs, and mute/unmute the hearing aid(s), some individuals may find this confusing, as this is controlled by the length of the button press. However, for those wanting control over these functions but are unable to manage the push button, a remote control or Bluetooth streamer with remote control is available. The hearing aid isn’t doesn’t include telecoil/hearing loop compatibility; however, this can be accessed via the Bluetooth streamer for those who are interested.
Bernafon’s Juna 9 Pico RITE is suitable for anyone interested in a discreet hearing aid with good user adjustability. Although not a aggressive in background noise as some other hearing aids on offer by other manufacturers, the ChannelFree processing allows for clear speech sounds, and works well for a natural sound quality for music-lovers.
