With Bernafon hearing aids, you’ll be able to see the positive changes they bring about.
Congratulations on your decision to buy Bernafon hearing aids. The first three to nine weeks are the most important to get used to them. Follow the roadmap for a maximized experience.
For the first few days, wear your hearing aids at home or in other quiet environments. Don’t be shy about reading out loud – this will help you get used to the sound of your own voice.
Your hearing aids will let you hear sounds you haven’t heard for some time – this is amazing but can also be tiring. Wear your hearing aids for a few hours the first day and add one more hour every day after that.
With your new hearing aids, speech is clearer and you can more easily participate in conversations. But it takes practice. So call your friends, invite them over, or reserve a table at your favorite restaurant.
Your new hearing aids need fine-tuning – and that’s especially true in the beginning. Talk with your hearing care professional about the situations that are most challenging for you.
Your new hearing aids offer so much power and possibilities, it can sometimes be overwhelming. Talk to your hearing care professional to make sure you understand how to make the best use of them.
Making the most of your Bernafon hearing aids
It's important to keep your hearing aids clean. Wipe them regularly with a dry cloth or tissue. It is also important to remove ear wax as this may cause temporary malfunction or in the worst case complete breakdown of your equipment.

Avoid getting your hearing aids wet (e.g. wearing them in the shower or when swimming). If your hearing aids are exposed to moisture or very humid conditions, remove the batteries and place the hearing aids in a dry storage kit. Never use a hair dryer or microwave oven to attempt to dry them.
Aftershave lotion, hairspray, oils and perfume contain chemicals which can have detrimental effects on your hearing aids. Always remove your hearing aids before applying such products and allow time for the product to dry before putting your hearing aids back on.
Your hearing aids should never be exposed to extreme heat. Do not leave them in the glove compartment of your car.
