ReSound is a reputable company that has served the public for nearly 80 years. Recently, ReSound has made many technological advances to its products. It was the first in the industry to bring direct iPhone streaming to hearing aids. ReSound has won several technology awards through the years thanks to its continuous efforts to bring state-of-the-art features to its products.
In August 2020, the company launched ReSound One, one of the only models to feature microphone & receiver-in-ear (M&RIE) design that gathers sound from within the folds of the ear pinna for a more natural listening experience, rather than pulling sound from outside the ear like other styles.
ReSound Hearing Aid Review
ReSound has many models of hearing aids, but its website only features its four top models. If those don’t suit a consumer’s needs, custom options in the LiNX Quatro line are available. As such, ReSound’s hearing aids (including its newer models with the latest technology) can accommodate mild to profound hearing loss.
ReSound calls its One and LiNX Quatro models “the world’s first premium-plus hearing aids,” and the prices reflect that. They’re among the more expensive hearing aids on the market.
ReSound’s ENZO Q model is compatible with cochlear implants, electronic devices that stimulate the auditory nerve via electrodes placed in the cochlea of the inner ear. Pairing the two devices can improve hearing for those with severe and profound hearing loss.
ReSound offers online hearing tests but requires consumers to see an audiologist for an in-person fitting. This ensures the consumer gets a more accurate and reliable hearing aid for their condition.
Rechargeable batteries can power hearing aids for up to 30 hours on three-hour charge. That’s impressive in this market even if it doesn’t take into consideration time spent streaming, which drains hearing aid batteries faster.
All models featured can connect to accessories to improve listening experience, including a remote microphone to extend listening range, phone streamer, and TV streamer.
- A variety of styles—including custom models—are available to treat mild to profound hearing loss.
- All models featured have Bluetooth connectivity.
- Smartphone and tablet apps that enable users to have more control of their listening experience, including ReSound Relief app for tinnitus treatment.
