Bernafon’s Saphira 5 Nano RITE is a mid-range level hearing aid that offers an automatic program and comes in a range of colours to suit various hair or skin tones. Saphira 5 also offers a multi-function push button with binaural coordination for ease of use, 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. 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 also includes telecoil/hearing loop compatibility. For those who enjoy listening to music or watching movies, Saphira 5 Nano RITE offers a Live Music Plus & Cinema program to further enhance your listening experience in these situations. Bernafon’s Saphira 5 Nano RITE can be fitted with 2 different receiver strengths, suitable for mild up to severe hearing losses, while still being cosmetically discreet. While not the smallest hearing aid on the market, the nano RITE tends to suit those with some dexterity problems who are still after a reasonably discreet-sized hearing aid at a reasonable price. The ChannelFree processing allows for clear speech sounds, and works well for a natural sound quality for music-lovers.
