Apple’s proprietary wireless streaming technology is being utilised by ReSound LiNX™ to allow users to control their hearing aid and stream audio directly from an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. ReSound has also developed an app letting the wearer directly control their hearing aid as never before. This Made for iPhone hearing aid is now available in the UK.
Via the app the hearing aid’s settings can be modified through the iPhone or iPad. Wearers can adjust volume, treble, bass etc to suit specific environments – their local restaurant, café, sports stadium, the office, at home – and ReSound Smart app’s ‘geo-tagging’ feature will remember these adjustments when they return to that location. It knows where you are and what you require.
Phone calls are streamed direct to the hearing aid – so there are no distractions or background noise. If the wearer is using their iPhone or iPod touch to find their way around then the turn-by-turn directions also come directly through to the aids.
For music lovers and film buffs this hearing aid can be used as state of the art headphones by streaming the wearer’s favourite music or film track direct from the Apple device.
And if the aid is lost then the app enables you to use the iPhone to locate it – by homing in on the device.
The direct Bluetooth® Smart connectivity (that enables the data exchange between the aid and Apple device) means that the ReSound LiNX™ aid wearer does not need to carry a separate remote control unit. This makes hearing aid usage and control more discrete and less cumbersome.
“There are three things I particularly love about my Made for iPhone hearing aids. First, the sound quality is the best I’ve ever heard in a hearing aid – totally natural. Second is calling my daughter on my iPhone. Conversation is streamed directly into my aids wirelessly, so the phone can be on the table and I can talk normally with my hands free. Third is being able adjust the sound settings via the Smart app on my iPhone so they are how I like them. I slide the bass level to halfway – and the treble towards the top – so easy with the on screen sliders. That gives me perfect sound.” Vernon, London.
