REVERB REDUCTION Turn Adverse Acoustics into Favorable Dynamics Reverberation is a physical phenomenon and is present in many listening environments. Small living rooms with furniture and curtains have a limited amount of reverberation. Huge buildings such as halls or cathedrals contain a greater amount (see Figure 1). The perceived amount of reverberation depends on the room acoustics (determined by its size and reflection of the surfaces) and the distance from the speaker to the listener. In highly reverberant conditions, reflections can be a detrimental signal like noise. They can have a...

REVERB REDUCTION Input Signal Reverb Reduction ON Reverb Reduction OFF Time (sec) Figure 2: Comparison between Bernafon Reverb Reduction ON and Reverb Reduction OFF Bernafon’s Reverb Reduction is an algorithm that first detects the reverberant part of the signal and its specific characteristics. The system is always active and able to estimate the likelihood of reverberation. Reverb Reduction then attenuates this part of the signal while preserving important speech information (see Figure 2). This means that the perceived amount of reverberation is reduced and that listening comfort is...

Traditional volume controls adjust the gain uniformly across the whole frequency bandwidth. They don’t take into account that some frequency bands are more important than others for speech intelligibility. Consequently, there is no special emphasis on speech-dominant frequency bands. In challenging listening environments, some clients wish to have the freedom of adjusting the gain manually. With Bernafon’s intelligent volume control i-VC, volume adjustments Turn the Ordinary into Something Special Most important frequencies for speech intelligibility Frequency Hz 800 Figure 3: Behavior of...

Turn Random Sounds into Meaningful Words However, there is another group of hearing-impaired people who do not benefit from such comprehensive amplification. Depending on their age and on the severity of their individual hearing loss, they may experience a growing inability to extract detailed speech cues. As a rule of thumb, the older the person and/or the more severe the hearing loss is, the higher the chance that this individual relies on the overall speech envelope for speech intelligibility (see Figure 6). This group can benefit from a different amplification strategy. For these...

Whereas the Envelope Priority mode is designed to support the other group of hearing-impaired people – those who rely on the information from the envelope for speech understanding. This strategy applies less alteration to the amplification of the speech signal, preserving the crucial contrasts in loudness of the envelope (see Figure 8). Choose either Phoneme Priority or Envelope Priority to best meet the needs of your clients. Bernafon’s Speech Cue Priority™ provides a solution for both target groups, a solution which offers two alternative amplification strategies. The Phoneme Priority...

Turn a Loud Backdrop into a Comfortable Corner signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and strongly reduces the noise to maximize listening comfort. Conversely, when ANR Plus identifies a higher SNR, it acts quickly to adjust the level of noise reduction appropriately. This ensures that important speech cues can be heard and understood (see Figures 9 and 10). Juna introduces an additional state within ANR Plus called Ultra Comfort. This new setting is ideal for particularly noisy situations. Steady state noises are among the most difficult sounds for hearing aid users to tolerate. Modern hearing aid...
