So, what do we think of the Bernafon Viron range?

First of all, Bernafon have come a long way with the physical design of their aids. They have always had great technology, but now the hearing aids look the part too. Gone is the bulbous shaping and at-times cheap looking plastic casing. Like it or not, how a hearing aid looks does matter. You've got to want to have it on your ear to actually hear any better through it.

Slimline shape

You can form your own opinion on whether these hearing aids are more appealing for displaying them on what looks like an artfully ruffled set of John Lewis curtains, however you can see clearly that the rechargeable model is almost as slim as the miniRITE with the 312 battery. This is a welcome change as lithium-ion rechargeables have been bulky in the past.

The models displayed below from left to right are the Virion 9 miniRITE 312, the Virion 9 miniRITE -R (rechargeable), the Virion 9 miniRITE -T (telecoil) and the Virion 9 BTE. All in metallic silver.

Practical

Even more important than the quality finish is the greater practicality of the models. Experienced wearers will appreciate the benefits of two separately defined buttons on three out of the four models.

So often with hearing aids you have to get used to a short press to change the program, a longer press to change the volume, all on a single long "rocker switch" where you can't always tell whether you are pressing the top or the bottom of it. Yes, many people will now be using the smartphone app to make any adjustments, and a good app that is (see below) but Bernafon recognise that the core of their users are still on the older side and may not be wielding smartphones, or if they are that they may not feel comfortable using them to alter their phone settings.

Bernafon Viron MiniRITE 9 / 7 / 5 / 3

The Viron miniRITE is likely to be the most popular of the models, the slimmest of the four but without losing any features at all. The only difference is the use of traditional size 312 batteries instead of being plugged into a charger.

 

Bernafon Viron

Bernafon Viron MiniRITE-R 9 / 7 / 5 / 3

The Viron minirite -R is the Li-Ion rechargeable version. 

Bernafon Viron MiniRITE-T 9 / 7 / 5 / 3

This is the version with the telecoil

Bernafon Viron BTE / 7 / 5 / 3

This is the largest of the options, mainly for people with severe hearing losses and is designed to be used with a traditional mold.
