Bernafon Hearing Aid Remote Control
Manual dexterity is a large non-audiological factor that can affect the success of your hearing aid use. This is because if you cannot manipulate your hearing aid, you are either less likely to use it or not receiving any benefits when you do. Therefore, this type of Bernafon hearing aid accessory is perfect for those with manual dexterity issues, or for users who just do not like using the small control on the hearing aid.
The Bernafon Hearing Aid remote control allows you to make adjustments to the volume and program settings of your Bernafon hearing aid. The remote is discreetly designed with easy-to-use controls and visible buttons. In addition, the remote is lightweight, making it easy to carry anywhere. The RC-N and RC-A remotes have a simple design with three buttons on the surface; one for turning the volume up, down, and one for changing programs. There is a finger grip on the opposite side of the remote to ensure that you are able to hold the remote. Finally, there are strap holes available on the bottom, so you can carry this remote anywhere. The RC-P looks slightly different and has the buttons on the side of the remote; one for program cycle, volume control, and a mute button. It also has a lock switch and a lanyard ring. In order to function, the remotes must be used with Bernafon hearing aids that offer wireless connectivity and within a distance of 1 metre.

We only work with the very best independent audiologists to ensure you always receive honest & unbiased advice.
The Costco Hearing Aid Centre works similarly to other audiologists in that they conduct hearing tests in a sound proof booth, and provide hearing aids at a discounted price. Undeniably, the biggest benefit of buying your hearing aids from Costco is the price. Another benefit is that everything can be done in one appointment from the hearing test to the hearing aid fitting, making it a cost-effective and time-efficient option for everyone. Furthermore, there is a 180-day money back guarantee, meaning that you really get to trial your hearing aids in all situations. However, the hearing aids sold at Costco have older technology than the hearing aids currently being sold on the market. Furthermore, if you have any issues with your hearing aid, you cannot get it adjusted by any other hearing centre, which can be inconvenient as Costco has few locations and their waiting lists for appointments are long. Furthermore, the care provided by Costco is not personalised. Unlike Costco, Hearing Choices provides the newest devices for a slightly more expensive price. This price includes the care from a local, independent audiologist who will give you unbiased and quality care.
As each range of Bernafon hearing aids come in a variety of styles, the batteries you will need will depend on the style you decide on. At Hearing Choices, you will be able to find your desired hearing aids and its batteries at a cheap price. The most popular sizes of hearing aid batteries are 10, 312, and 13.
Battery prices at Hearing Choices can be found under $10, with the majority ranging between $6-8 for a packet that comes with 6 batteries. For a 12-month supply, you can expect to pay $120-150. Although battery life depends on the type of battery and how you use the hearing aid, you can generally receive somewhere between 3-10 days.
