Apple Launches iPhone Hearing Aid

ReSound LiNX is taking advantage of the great Apple wireless streaming technology in order to stream audio from an iPad, iPhone, or iPod into their hearing aid. In addition, ReSound has also created an app so that it is simple and easy for a user to control what is delivered over their hearing aid with just a touch of the button. The hearing aid is now available for purchase in the UK.

The settings of the hearing aid can be adjusted using either the iPad or the iPhone. Users can choose to address treble, bass, or volume so that they can adapt easily within their favorite environments such as a café, the office, or home environment. In addition, the app makes use of ‘geo tagging’ so that next time you are in the same spot you will not have to adjust your settings again.

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.

ReSound LiNX, the world’s smartest hearing aid, combines the best in hearing aid technology with the latest in iPhone functionality – to produce the only hearing aid that can come close to describing itself as ‘cool’.
