Resound are a Danish hearing aid manufacturer and are part of the Nordic Group. They have offices in over 25 countries and their UK headquarters are in Oxford. They are one of the top 5 manufacturers in the world due to their constantly advancing technology. Since they began in the 1940s, Resound has continued to grow but it is in the last 20 years that they have really started to show their innovation.
They were the first manufacturer to offer open fit hearing aids which have paved the way for the RIC technology we see today. They are also the creators of WDRC (Wide Dynamic Range Compression) which improved sound processing and DFS (Digital Feedback Suppression) which was designed to eliminate feedback.
Unlike many hearing aid manufacturers, Resound does not own or have shares in any retailers. They are one of the manufacturers of high technology hearing aids that I provide. You can see all of my hearing aid prices here.
This page details the most modern ReSound hearing aids available in Scotland, you can read about older and discontinued Resound hearing aids here.
ReSound has delivered a new hearing aid platform that will be available soon in Scotland. The new Nexia range of hearing devices offers ReSound's latest technology including the fabulous new AuracastTM system to help you hear better. Packed with both updated and new features, the devices allow you to hear better when attending complex sound environments like family dinners or celebrations with their best speech understanding in noise yet.
The new Nexia range builds upon their Omnia systems and adds new technology that opens up the world of connected communications to hearing aid users like never before. The new platform also delivers a new AuracastTM-ready TV Streamer+ which will ensure that the user can take full advantage of this groundbreaking audio streaming technology.
ReSound has delivered a new hearing aid platform that's available right now in Scotland. The new Omnia range of hearing devices offers ReSound's latest technology to help you hear better. Packed with both updated and new features, the devices allow you to hear better when attending those complex sound environments like family dinners or celebrations with their best speech understanding in noise yet.
The platform was first introduced in three RIC styles, a rechargeable RIC that will offer an unbelievable 30 hours of use, a RIC 61 with a traditional size 312 battery, and a RIC 62 with a traditional size 13 battery. The devices, as you can see from the main picture are shaped just like their previous One platform offering.
Resound has announced the expansion of the Omnia range with a brand new Mini RIC rechargeable, two BTEs and a choice of custom ITE devices:
All except the CIC will connect to ReSound’s Smart3D App and feature Bluetooth® streaming of audio and phone calls, with hands-free calling for Apple iOS devices. Each is available in three technology levels (9, 7, and 5).
ReSound is making strong claims with the Omnia release, they say that you can hear your best in noise with an incredible 150% improvement in speech understanding. The supporting study evidence on that 150% number shows that Omnia will provide 4.3dB SNR (Signal To Noise Ratio) improvement to speech understanding compared to their legacy products. While 4.3dB sounds like a small number, for SNR, it's a technically significant improvement.
ReSound also mentions Organic Hearing, which means that they sound natural, feel natural and connect you to your world naturally. It seems that ReSound hearing aids have become more natural sounding with every new release if my customers are to be believed, so it will be interesting to see what some of them make of the Omnia. They also announced an interesting new feature that will be available on the App that they call Check My Fit.
This feature will allow you to check the physical fit of your hearing aids, it's a pretty good idea because many new users are never sure if they have their hearing aids in their ears correctly. Having your aids properly in your ears is important, if they aren't in properly, you don't get the full benefit. Check My Fit should solve the uncertainty.
Two more things offered are natural own voice perception and 360-degree sound environment mapping. For new users especially, the suddenly changed perception of their voice when wearing hearing aids can be irksome at first but usually fades. The new system will work towards making it a much more natural perception. ReSound say that 360-degree mapping enables users to automatically tune into what they want to listen to and not have the hearing aids choose for them.
ReSound finally delivered custom hearing aids on the One platform, however, we can forgive them for the delay, because they spent the time delivering their first-ever custom rechargeable hearing aids. ReSound offers some of the most outstanding rechargeable aids available. They offer excellent battery life in nice discreet packages. The new Custom By ReSound rechargeables are no exception offering 24 hours of use even when streaming all day. The range is made up of two types, the CIC (Completely In Canal), and the rechargeable device which can be built in ITC (In The Canal), half-shell and full-shell
Unlike some of the instant-fit rechargeable devices available from other manufacturers, these are true custom devices, which means that we need to take an impression of your ears and send it away. They then manufacture the devices to fit the unique shape of your ears. With the custom rechargeable though, they don't just stop there, the charger is manufactured as a perfect copy of your ear canals to ensure the devices sit in it exactly. Meaning that they will be charged every time.
With the exception of the CIC, these are dual microphone devices, and they all run on the One platform. They offer them at three distinct technology levels like other ReSound model types. They haven't quite integrated them into the One range keeping them separate, but the technology that powers One will power them.
ReSound says that Custom made by ReSound delivers three innovations:
The new custom insert in the recharger is a brilliant idea. The insert mirrors the hearing aid shell's shape. It means good electrical contact between the aid and recharger ensuring they charge properly every time. It also makes it much easier for you to slip the hearing aids into place which makes it easy to use for anyone with dexterity issues.
Custom made by ReSound will come in a choice of colours and will be available in a new In-style™ anthracite colour, or Blend-in™ hair and skin tones.
The devices will come in ITC, half-shell or full-shell, there is a new CIC (Completely In Canal) as well, but it isn't a rechargeable device. Too small to get a rechargeable battery into. It will be interesting to see how popular this device is with my customers. While they will be great hearing aids, the style will not be suitable for everyone.
Having said that, many people would like the idea that everyone thought they were wearing wireless earbuds rather than hearing aids.
