Bernafon True Stories

Jean-François Bérard, head chef in La Cadière-d’Azur, France

An ingredient for success

Jean-François is owner of and head chef at a trendy Michelin-starred restaurant on the French Riviera. While running a successful kitchen demands a careful balance of experience and creativity, it also calls for strong communication and organizational skills. As a child, Jean-François lost 80 % of his hearing abilities, but he was determined not to let it get in the way. Now, with industry-leading technology, his Bernafon hearing aids give him optimal speech understanding in noise-filled environments so that he can orchestrate his tasks with confidence, ease, and style.

Real-time amplification in fast-changing environments

Integrated on a remarkably powerful microchip, the latest generation of Bernafon hearing aids uses a combination of systems that simultaneously analyze and adapt to the sound environment you find yourself in. The result is real-time amplification and optimal speech understanding in quiet and in noise.

Wireless connectivity

Thanks to the latest Bluetooth® Low Energy technology, Bernafon hearing aids can be used like stereo headphones to get the sound from your phone, TV and other audio sources right into your ears with just a few taps of the smartphone.
