Details & Features

Bernafon Alpha XT 7 Hearing Aids Overview


Berfonafon Alpha XT 7 hearing aids introduction

Launched in March 2023, the Bernafon Alpha XT hearing aid range, like the original Alpha, was inspired by an animal's precise hearing but now it includes a more advanced Hybrid Technology - called Hybrid Sound Care.  The main focus of this new feature is protecting hearing aid wearers from the disturbance of both wind and contact noise.

Bernafon Alpha XT 7 hearing aids are at the middle-performance level, so it includes most of the robust features but has less personalisation and fewer sophisticated options - especially for background noise.  There are two rechargeable and two disposable battery options all with wireless connectivity technology.  Giving you advanced sound quality, and clarity within an elegant design.


A few benefits of Bernafon Alpha XT 7 hearing aids:

  • Focus on being outdoors:  This hearing aid is created for additional listening comfort and speech clarity in windy environments outdoors.
  • Focus on conversations:  This hearing aid incorporates Hybrid Technology to seamlessly augment listening comfort and speech understanding.
  • Focus on everything but your hearing aids:  The rechargeable options in this range can charge in less than 4 hours and last you all day (even when streaming).


Bernafon Alpha XT 7 hearing aids new Hybrid Sound Care features

Hybrid Sound Care removes noise at the beginning of the signal processing.  This feature tackles and protects you from the annoyance of both wind noise and contact noise.  How does this help your hearing?  

Because this technology can make 500 adjustments per second across 24 frequency bands, you will gain more comfort in wind noise (using the Wind Noise Protector) and handling noise, such as brushing your hair or putting on your glasses (using Contact Noise Protector). 

The Contact Noise Protector assists in preventing the annoyance of contact noise, such as brushing your hair. Traditional hearing aids in the past would have amplified these noises like other sounds, but Alpha XT quickly detects them and reduces amplification automatically.  Resulting in better speech clarity and better listening comfort with less listening effort.

Along with the original Alpha features set of Hybrid Sound Processing, Hybrid Noise Management, Hybrid Balancer, and Hybrid Feedback Canceller - they work in harmony. This means that the sound you hear is always the best in various listening situations. Giving you greater speech understanding and listening comfort.

Bernafon Alpha XT 7 hearing aid charging systems

  • Desktop charger:  This user-friendly charging system is a small desktop charger allowing you to charge overnight ready for a full day's worth of power the next day.
  • Portable charger:  A convenient and nifty charging system, ideal for travelling and charging on the go.  It offers three full charging cycles without the need for a power supply.


Bernafon Alpha XT 7 hearing aid connectivity

These hearing aids offer hands-free calls for both iPhones and iPads and connect to all Bernafon's hearing aid accessories.  Such as SoundClip-A, RC-A, and TV-A.  They are also compatible with streaming audio directly from iPhone and Android devices.

There is also a new Bernafon app which now combines both hearing aid control management and remote care support.  So you can now, adjust your volume and programs, find your hearing aids, check your battery level, and now remote care from your audiologist.

Is this the best model for me?

If you are looking at this page then it is likely that an audiologist has suggested that you purchase this particular hearing aid, so is this the best model for you?

In general, any audiologist will always be recommending to you the model that best suits your needs. Here is a useful check list to make sure that is the case.

  • Audiologist level of knowledge. The audiologist you have seen will hopefully have a wide knowledge of all available hearing aids, however some will only be familiar with a small number of brands and therefore may not really be in a position to know which model is the best for you. It is OK to challenge their recommendation and ask them to justify why this particular brand is the one for you.
  • Do research. Read about the hearing aid that was recommended. Does it seem like it will suit your lifestyle? Does it have more or less features than you need? 
  • Be aware of sales targets. Many high street retailers have specific tie-ins to a particular manufacturer/brand. The hearing aid they have suggested may still be the correct one for you, but do your research so that you know why they might have recommended it.

If in doubt, feel free to give us a call. That's what we're here for.

Do I need one hearing aid or two?

If you have a significant hearing loss in both ears, you should be wearing two hearing aids. Here are the audiological reasons why:

Localisation. The brain decodes information from both ears and compares and contrasts them. By analysing the miniscule time delays as well as the difference in loudness of each sound reaching the ears, the person is able to accurately locate a sound source. Simply put, if you have better hearing on one side than the other, you can't accurately tell what direction sounds are coming from.

Less amplification required. A phenomena known as “binaural summation” means that the hearing aids can be set at a lower and more natural volume setting than than if you wore only one hearing aid.

Head shadow effect. High frequencies, the part of your hearing that gives clarity and meaning to speech sounds, cannot bend around your head. Only low frequencies can. Therefore if someone is talking on your unaided side you are likely to hear that they are speaking, but be unable to tell what they have said.

Noise reduction. The brain has it’s own built in noise reduction which is only really effective when it is receiving information from both ears. If only one ear is aided, even with the best hearing aid in the world, it will be difficult for you to hear in background noise as your brain is trying to retain all of the sounds (including background noise) rather than filtering it out.

Sound quality. We are designed to hear in stereo. Only hearing from one side sounds a lot less natural to us.

What are the benefits of rechargeable hearing aids?

For most people, the main benefit of a rechargeable hearing aid is simple convenience. We are used to plugging in our phones and other devices overnight for them to charge up. 

For anybody with poor dexterity or issues with their fingers, having a rechargeable aid makes a huge difference as normal hearing aid batteries are quite small and some people find them fiddly to change.

One downside is that if you forget to charge your hearing aid, then it is a problem that can't be instantly fixed. For most a 30 minute charge will get you at least two or three hours of hearing, but if you are the type of person who is likely to forget to plug them in regularly then you're probably better off with standard batteries.

Rechargeable aids are also a little bit bigger and are only available in behind the ear models.

Finally, just like with a mobile phone, the amount of charge you get on day one is not going to be the same as you get a few years down the line. Be sure to ask what the policy is with the manufacturer warranty when it comes to replacing the battery.


Are behind the ear aids better than in the ear aids?

For most people, the answer is yes. But it's never that simple.

The majority of hearing problems affect the high frequencies a lot more than the low ones. Therefore open fitting hearing aids sound a lot more natural and ones that block your ears up can make your own voice sound like you are talking with your head in a bucket. Therefore in-ear aids tend to be less natural.

However the true answer is we can't tell until we have had a look in your ears to assess the size of your ear canal, and until we have tested your hearing to see which frequencies are being affected.

People with wider ear canals tend to have more flexibility, also there are open fitting modular CIC hearing aids now that do not block your ears.

There is also the age old rule to consider, that a hearing aid will not help you if it's sat in the drawer gathering dust. If the only hearing aid you would be happy wearing is one that people can't see, then that's what you should get.

Most people can adapt to any type of hearing aid, as long as they know what to expect. Have an honest conversation with your audiologist as to what your needs are.

What are channels, and how many do I need?

Generally speaking, six or more. Unless it's none at all.

The number of channels a hearing aid has is often a simplistic way an audiologist will use to explain why one hearing aid is better than another, but channels are complex and it is really not that straightforward.

Hearing aids amplify sounds of different frequencies by different amounts. Most people have lost more high frequencies than low and therefore need more amplification in the high frequencies. The range of sounds you hear are split into frequency bands or channels and the hearing aids are set to provide the right amount of hearing at each frequency level.

Less than six channels and this cannot be done with much accuracy, so six is the magic number. However, a six channel aid is typically very basic with few other features and is suitable only for hearing a single speaker in a quiet room. The number of channels is not what you should be looking at, it's more the rest of the technology that comes with them.

As a final note, different manufacturers have different approaches. One method is not necessarily better than any other. For example some manufacturers have as many as 64 channels in their top aids. Most tend to have between 17 and 20. One manufacturer has no channels at all.
