A fuller music experience

Music enriches life in so many ways. All your patients' music – live, recorded, or streamed – will come alive with the Music Experience program, which uses a unique algorithm specifically designed to optimize live, played, recorded, and streamed music.

Inspiration in every note

With the Music Experience program, your patients will savor each note with high-quality, precise, and balanced sound – whether they’re playing or listening to music. Bernafon has a long history of providing an exceptional music experience. And we’re always building on that success to make your patients' music experience even better.

Superior sound quality

The Music Experience program optimally processes music thanks to the real-time and high-precision sound analysis of Smart Sound Processing.

A balanced music experience

Combined with Smart Sound Processing, the unique music algorithm amplifies all types of music more transparently for accurate sound reproduction. It uses an independent compression scheme to amplify the broader frequency and dynamic range of music sounds. This preserves the precision and tonality of music for a richer sound experience.

Richer sound with low-frequency extension

The Music Experience program can now transmit deeper bass sounds to the ear with amplification down to 80 Hz, giving your patients a sensation of better sound richness. The upgraded Low Frequency Enhancer is optimized to improve sound quality and precision when streaming music.

Why is music important?

Research indicates that music has the power to affect people’s wellbeing. It creates a certain atmosphere and influences the listeners' emotions. Music can trigger memories of the past and help people to relax. Studies show the positive effects of music through:

... boosting the listener's mood1

... reducing stress2

... and stimulating the memory3

Pioneering the way music is processed in hearing aids

Bernafon enjoys a successful legacy in processing live music and maximizing the benefits of hearing aid technology for hearing-impaired musicians. Research audiologists from Bernafon have published regularly in this field for many years.
