Hands-free calls when using hearing aids give a real sense of freedom for those who can avail of them. It means no faffing around with the phone, or in some cases, finding the phone. Up to now, the only hearing aid brand to offer the feature has been Phonak.
However, ReSound has now introduced the feature for their ReSound One hearing aids with iPhones. It means that all One users with a recent iPhone will be able to update their phone and use the hands-free feature. Let's talk about what you need to enjoy the freedom of hands-free and the benefits it offers.
To use the new upgraded feature with your ReSound Ones, you will need to update your iPhone to IOS 15 and your iPad to IOS 15.1. Not all iPhones will be able to upgrade to the new IOS, but the last few iPhone offerings from Apple should have no issue. Once you have upgraded your IOS, you will be ready to go.
The hearing aids will offer hands-free phone and FaceTime calls from iPhone and iPad. You will be able to answer calls with just a tap on your hearing aids and enjoy conversations with outstanding sound quality — all without ever having to take their device out of your pocket. The hands-free feature is a great solution for conversations while multitasking, for example, when cooking, carrying groceries, being at work, or when your iPhone or iPad is simply out of reach.
It's fantastic to see ReSound offer this great feature and it will see the end of Phonak's unique offering. I have had great success with the ReSound One and I will be calling my customers to inform them of the latest developments.
