ReSound is one of the leaders in the hearing aid industry. Their products are currently helping millions of people hear better so they can maintain their careers and lifestyles. Whenever they release a new product, it’s an exciting event.
This new product combines features from many different devices to try and please a wide range of hearing loss patients. This is a tall order since hearing aids are not a one-size-fits-all solution.
Let’s go over the particulars of this product to help you determine if these will help you or not.
- The first thing to note is the large button placed on the face plate. This makes it easy for everyone to access, even if someone has dexterity issues. Sometimes, small devices mean small buttons, which means the hearing aids have to be removed to make changes accurately; not with these.
- Batteries are a constant battle with hearing aids, so any improvement in that department is highly regarded. These are fitted with a battery life that lasts 24 hours on a single charge. They also have special inserts to make charging them more manageable as well.
- One of the biggest improvements is in the performance. Users will experience a 40% boost in hearing when they are in noisy situations. Since we rarely find ourselves in quiet settings, nor do we have control over it when we do, this addition is a huge perk.
My Thoughts Exactly
The size and performance are two aspects that will make this product very popular. Hearing aids are starting to shed the stigma that they are only for older people, and it’s becoming more common to see people of all ages working to improve their hearing.
Having these fit inside the ear is a huge selling point for many people. They won’t be affected by glasses or a mask, yet are easy to get in and out when it’s time for bed.
Who Will Get the Most from These?
Issues With Dexterity — With the large button to access settings and change preferences, people who would otherwise struggle with such a small hearing device won’t with this one. This is a top concern of many patients who look at small devices, but this also works with iPhone and android so that the user will start with a level of familiarity.
Wearing Glasses and Masks — It’s hard to imagine a company not considering this since millions of people wear glasses and even more wear masks these days. Ensuring a hearing device doesn’t affect other health precautions is at the top of ReSound’s list. These fit comfortably in the ear canal, so no matter how many times glasses or masks are removed, these hearing aids will stay put.
Outdoor Enthusiasts — Due to their small size, they are perfect for active people who want to get their steps in. Feel free to exercise and continue with nature walks, as these are designed to fit securely in the ear. With our help, we can work together to get the proper fitting from day one. This will allow you to enjoy your favorite activities without the fear of losing your hearing aids.
Prior ReSound Users — If you are upgrading your current ReSound hearing aids, then the transition will be seamless for you. Many of the interfaces are the same, so you’ll already be familiar with the setup and how to change settings.
Those Who Make A Lot of Phone Calls — Since our lives include some kind of phone device, ReSound made an effort to ensure your comfort when using it. By fitting into your ear canal, these hearing aids sit far enough away from the edge of your ear so you can easily press a phone to it. This works for cell phones and landlines.
