The Resound One 7 hearing aids are the latest mid-range, Made For iPhone and Made For Android hearing aid technology from GN ReSound.
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. There is a lot of new with this platform. The 7, of course, is the mid-range platform and it will not have all of the latest technology on-board. It still benefits from new features, a new chip, a new normalised sound and a breakthrough microphone placement.
Their brand-new sound processing chipset delivers 50% more processing power and 220% more memory than the previous chipset to provide sound with greater depth and direction without compromising battery life.
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 the sound comes from. This plays a big part in our ability to ignore the sound that we are not interested in and to focus on the sound we are.
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 and Ultra Focus allows you to narrow the focus of the microphones in noisy situations.
The ReSound ONE platform will offer connectivity options to both iOS and AndroidTM smartphones for streaming and hearing aid control.

The overall feature set of the 7 technology levels is as follows, each hearing aid may not have the full range of features here
The new microphone and Receiver In Ear speaker delivers a more natural sound experience by allowing the hearing aids to use the natural sound cues in the ear canal. It allows you to better localise sound and delivers an even more natural sound experience.
All Access Directionality automatically adjusts the directional microphone patterns based on the sound environment so that you can hear what’s important and still monitor the sounds around you. In noisier situations, All Access Directionality uses a new binaural connection between the hearing aids to create a stronger, more focused beam for sounds in front, it delivers up to 2 dB better signal-to-noise ratio.
This system should help to deliver a more normalised sound experience while still allowing you to hear the speech that you want to hear.
This feature allows the hearing aids to work together to analyse the listening environment you are in. It then automatically adjusts the features and amplification to deliver the best experience for you.
Knowing what the sound situation around you accurately is really important, so this feature identifies the situation with high accuracy and then manages the feature set of the hearing aids to deliver the very best hearing for you. This feature and its accuracy is imperative for the function of the aids. Resound are quoting really high accuracy and our experience concurs.
This is a unique noise reduction system that works on the basis of spectral subtraction. It reduces unwanted noise without affecting the speech signal.
The really important bit here is that it seems to do what they are saying. It is excellent on any noise that is steady state (which means recurring similarly) like engine noise, background hum of any kind.
A high precision feedback system that allows the cancellation of feedback with extreme accuracy. This new feedback control allows the use of the M&RIE receiver. The Music mode is a slower acting system which allows better handling of music.
Feedback is probably one of the most annoying things for users. The feedback system allows the amplification that you need without causing that damned irritating whistling. Having a system which also has a music mode means that your appreciation of music will be better. Sometimes music can sound like feedback, a music mode allows the system a little more time to make sure it isn't and do nothing. That means less distortion for you.
Resound Assist will allow your provider to adjust your hearing aids remotely. That means if you want adjustments on the go, they can be provided without you having to attend the clinic. The system is really easy to use and is quite intuitive. This might not be for everyone, but this feature will be a godsend for the people who love it. It will allow them complete freedom over their experience, over their customer experience.
The accompanying app also allows you personalise your hearing experience in a deeper way. It has been re-designed to be more intuitive and easier to use and it offers real control. Again, this might not be for everyone, but for those who want it, it will enrich their experience. Again, this has to be seen as an excellent thing.

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.
The lithium-ion cell that ReSound use has proven to be excellent. The charger case is just genius offering three full charges of the hearing aids if for some reason you forget your power lead.
This is a very discreet device using a 312 cell for power. This device does not have a telecoil.
Even with the size 13 battery, this device is still a very discreet RIE. This device has a telecoil on board as well to connect to public loop systems.
