ReSound Hearing Aids Scotland

The makers of the famous Made For iPhone hearing aids

The first Made For iPhone hearing aids ever!


Who Are They

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.

The Latest & Best Hearing Aids From GN ReSound

ReSound One

ReSound announced the introduction of their new ReSound One hearing aid platform on August 18th but they officially launched them at a virtual global event on September 1st. As I said in my news article, there is a lot of new with this platform, new features, a new chip, a new normalised sound and a breakthrough microphone placement.

A Microphone in The Receiver

ReSound One Microphone and Receiver in Ear system

One of the big innovations is the new microphone placement with their M&RIE receiver. ReSound believe that with a third microphone in the ear canal that they can make use of the more natural sound cues that can be picked up there. The outer ear plays a big part in our ability to localise sound allowing us to work out where sound comes from. This plays a big part in our ability to ignore sound that we are not interested in and to focus on the sound we are.

Resound Say "The outer ear (pinna) is designed by nature to work like an acoustic antenna. It helps the brain localize and tune in to a particular sound, for example when listening to a specific voice in a crowded café. However, the most popular styles of hearing aids (Receiver-In-Ear and Behind-The-Ear models) capture sound from microphones that sit behind the ear and then approximate the effect of the pinna. The result is an averaged and incomplete reproduction of sound, making it hard for the brain to achieve its natural localization and noise-cancelling function."

ReSound say that they have worked on this for over ten years. Placing a microphone in the receiver is challenging because of the possibility of it causing feedback. ReSound has introduced a brand new feedback management system which they are calling DFS Ultra III. They have worked on this system for nearly ten years and say that the new feedback manager combined with the newly designed receivers allows them to deal with the feedback challenge.

New Directionality Modes

ReSound has also introduced two new directionality modes they are calling All Access Directionality and a user-activated Ultra focus setting. All access directionality allows you to focus on the speaker while still having access to the surrounding sound. Ultra Focus will be user-activated and it allows you to narrow the focus of the microphones in noisy situations. It will allow you to focus on the person in front of you allowing you to hear what they are saying even in a noisy sound situation. These new directionality modes will only be available in the top level of technology.

Made For iPhone, Made For Android

ReSound Smart App

The ReSound ONE platform will offer connectivity options to both iOS and AndroidTM smartphones for streaming and hearing aid control.

The Hearing Aids

The new One platform will be introduced with three RIC (Receiver In Canal) or as they call them Receiver In Ear devices. They will be a rechargeable aid using lithium-ion, a 312 traditional battery aid and a size 13 traditional battery aid. They have introduced a new style of casing which while similar to their old one looks a bit more angular. The rechargeable will come with the outstanding charger case that they introduced with the Quattro, which means charges on the go if you need it.

Three Technology Levels

The ReSound One platform will be available in three technology platforms, the 9, the 7 and the 5 offering a ReSound One for every pocket.

LiNX Quattro

Resound announced the launch of a new premium plus hearing aid called the LiNX Quattro in October 2018. The devices are designed on a brand new chipset and they offer completely newly designed versions of their existing features. They also offer completely new features and strategies that provide a completely new sound strategy and a completely new way to handle sounds in noisy situations.

  • All of the Quattro devices are Bluetooth direct connection hearing aids
  • The devices use a brand new chip platform
  • The chip has 100% faster processing than 3D
  • The chip has 100% additional memory over the 3D
  • Resound are using a new way of handling directionality inputs
  • They have introduced a redesigned wireless radio with extra signal strength
  • They have extended the bandwidth of the devices giving extra high-frequencies

A Lithium-ion Rechargeable Made For iPhone Hearing Aid

The LiNX Quattro RE-61 is a rechargeable direct connection, Bluetooth enabled or Made For iPhone hearing aid just like all the LiNX devices before it. Resound have redesigned the wireless radio though and they say that it is more powerful than ever before. That should translate into pretty stable connection to the iPhone and hopefully Android phones when Android releases the new version. Making it a rechargeable device makes a lot of sense, although they have used the chip upgrades to improve power consumption, a rechargeable option allows you the comfort of never having to worry about hearing aid batteries. The battery life is also fantastic, they say that you will get 24 hours of life even if you are streaming for 50% of the time, that's pretty amazing. The device shown above is the rechargeable option, but they are also offering a traditional hearing aid battery model which is based on the RE-62 using a size thirteen battery.

Linx Quattro LT-62 hearing aid

Traditional Zinc Air Powered

The RE-62 is a traditional zinc-air powered device that takes a size 13 battery. It has a telecoil onboard and offers a multi-functional button which acts as volume control and programme button. The device is water-resistant. This might be the device for you if you want an on-board telecoil receiver.

Resound say that the new power management system will increase the battery life of the 62 type device by 20%. We reckon that most modern 13 battery hearing aids will offer you about 5 to 7 days of use. You will be lucky to get much more than that.

The new Mini RIE 61 is a very discreet device powered by a 312 battery. It doesn't have a telecoil but it does offer the multi-functional button which acts as volume control and programme button.

Behind The Ear Hearing Aids

REsound Quattro BTE aidsResound have also introduced three BTE hearing aids to the Quattro range the BTE 67, the BTE 77 and the BTE 88.

BTE 67: This is a wireless Made for iPhone BTE that can be used with a thin-tube or standard BTE tubing and mould. This device has a push-button, volume control and telecoil. It uses a size 13 battery.
BTE 77: This is a wireless Made for iPhone BTE that can be used with a thin-tube or standard BTE tubing and mould. This device has a push-button, volume control and telecoil. It also offers Direct Audio Input, which means it will accept an audio boot. It uses a size 13 battery.
BTE 88: This is a wireless high-power Made for iPhone BTE. The device is fitted with a push-button, volume control and telecoil. It also offers Direct Audio Input, which means it will accept an audio boot. It uses a size 13 battery.
 

Custom Hearing Aids

Resound have introduced four custom hearing aid models on the Quattro range. Each of the custom devices are Bluetooth hearing aids and there are some fantastic options available with them.

LiNX Quattro custom hearing aids

CIC W Completely in Canal: This is the first-ever Bluetooth enabled CIC, although, in my experience, it has been more an ITC size. It will connect to both iPhones and enabled Android phones for streaming of audio and phone calls. It won't offer a telecoil.
ITC DW In The Canal: This is a slightly larger wireless Made for iPhone in-the-canal hearing aid. It uses a size 312 battery and can come with an optional telecoil and programme button.
ITE DW In The Ear: This is a larger full shell wireless Made for iPhone in-the-ear hearing with an optional telecoil and programme button. It uses a size 312 or 13 battery.
