RESOUND HEARING AIDS

ReSound- “Rediscover Hearing”

Phonak hearing aids office
They're the company that introduced the world to the first Made for iPhone hearing aids in 2014. Almost overnight, it changed the way people think about hearing aids. Suddenly they were convenient, practical, and downright desirable consumer electronics.

Denmark-based ReSound was founded in 1943, and is located within miles of two other major hearing aid manufacturers. Perhaps it's this proximity to such a concentration of audio engineering talent that is fueling their innovation.

Most recently, ReSound introduced an innovative new receiver called M&RIE, which features a microphone in the ear, designed to help wearers better localize sound.

Read what a few of our favorite ZipHearing providers have to say about ReSound

What needs improving

Resound has the best custom product shell lab in the industry in my experience. Custom products fit the customer’s ear perfectly on the first fitting and I never have to send it back for a remake to fit better. However, Resound needs work on its wireless CIC’s. Currently, that style is only available with a large “antennae” that protrudes significantly out of the ear and is unsightly. Ultimately, I have to switch to another brand entirely for those customers who want a wireless CIC that is “invisible or nearly invisible”.

What needs improving

Resound has had problems in the past with their charger box for their rechargeable RIC aids. The USB mini plug-in connection was not as durable as possible. Resound has rectified this problem recently by switching to the USB-C plug-in connector that has been more reliable. Resound could give us dispensers more program choices to give to patients, such as Television. With my 30 years of experience, I often create and program a television program for my patients. We are still anxiously awaiting Resound to come out with “Custom” in the ear aids for their highly successful Resound “ONE” product line….hopefully this fall.

What needs improving

We work with a lot of folks with severe hearing loss. I’d love it if ReSound would extend the range of their frequency lowering (Sound Shaper) down to 1500 Hz. In more than a few cases, this was a deciding factor to move the patient to another product.

Kirk Payne, Hearing Instrument Specialist

What needs improving

While we really like the Resound ONE and the industry leading rechargeability with up to 30 hours of power from a 3 hour charge, we don't like that it's only available in the small over the ear style. Some people want a rechargeable custom design that fits only in the ear canal. In these cases we show the patients the pros and cons of that style and sometimes we have to order from a different manufacturer to get everything the patient wants.

What needs improving

Patients would like increased lithium rechargeable battery life, an ability to utilize multiple Bluetooth devices simultaneously, and to have sustainable bilateral connectivity for Android devices.

I’ve recommended them to all my friends

Review by: Robert from WA
Model: ReSound One 9 RIE 62
Bought: Jan 2021

Hi, my name is Bob S, I’m 91 years old, or actually will be 91 a week from yesterday. I started using hearing aids some 15 to 20 years ago, and my hearing has become poorer and poorer over time as I grew older, and in fact today I don’t hear very much if I don’t have my hearing aids in, unless my wife shouts at me, or something of that order. To get to my hearing aids, who I bought them from, we moved from a ski resort up in the mountains of New Mexico some 15 years ago, and I was wearing hearing aids that I bought out there, and I’ve forgotten what name they were, but when I got to Texas, I happened to come onto a dealer that I really liked who had good audiologists working for him, and he sold ReSound hearing aids, so I started with him and I’ve probably had maybe 5 different ReSound hearing aids since I started with them. My current ones are the ReSound ONEs, and let me take one of these off and see if we can get a picture of it. Do we see that? Yeah I believe we do see that. You can see that I’ve got molds which help my hearing, my hearing is so bad that with the normal things that you wear in your ear, molds help you better because they close out almost all of the sound other than what you’re hearing from your hearing aids. I chose ReSound because they work for me and I’ve recommended them to all my friends and all that wear hearing aids, and I did that because they work for me and I’m very comfortable with them. So let me tell you another thing, my advice to anybody wearing hearing aids is two fold. First, don’t wait too long to get your hearing aids. I waited a long time and I got tired of my wife saying “you’ve got poor hearing”, and I said “no, I don’t have poor hearing, I’ve just got selecting hearing.” At any rate, don’t wait too long, it’s better to get into them and start getting adjusted to them, it takes a little bit of adjustment. And the second reason and the most important one as far as I’m concerned, is find a place that’s got an audiologist that you can work with and that your comfortable working with and he or she is comfortable working with you. This is important because you need to not only adjust them when you buy them, but they need to be continually adjusted. As people get older, their hearing changes, and I’ve had many hearing tests with audiologists because that’s the way they can tell my hearing was changing and they can readjust my hearing aids. But that’s probably the most important thing that I can give to you- is find a specialist that you’re comfortable with and they work with you and they’re happy working with you, because it’s an important part of it. You just can’t go buy them on the web or wherever you would like to buy them and get them touched up once and then if you don’t have somebody to continue to do it, you’re going to be in trouble with your hearing aids, I have a lot of friends that never wear their hearing aids because they never got them to work for them, and this is probably the main reason why they didn’t work for them- they never kept them adjusted to their hearing. Well there you go, here’s my little interview, I hope it’s helpful for some people. But life for hearing aids is certainly a lot better than life without hearing aids.

I’m glad that I found the ReSound One 9

Review by: Lane from MN
Model: ReSound One 9 RIE 61
Bought: Dec 2020

Hi everybody, I recently had an opportunity to purchase some new hearing aids so I thought I would share a little feedback with you all. I wanted to share first about my hearing history. I have bought a new pair of hearing aids starting with when I turned 12 years old, I was diagnosed with hereditary hearing loss in the 7th grade, and therefore have been wearing hearing aids in both ears ever since. The type of hearing aid that I just bought is called the ReSound One 9, and it was a new thing for me actually to go to the ReSound. I heard about it from my audiologists that I had been working with, it’s not necessarily like me to try something new, but I thought, why not. So I started the search for new hearing aids and at first felt very overwhelmed as I always do, because there are so many options out there, but after looking into it, I decided that it was the one for me. Some pros to the ReSound- I love music, and I love listening to music, so this is the first pair of hearing aids I’ve had that have Bluetooth in them and that has been amazing for streaming and it’s been very enjoyable to be able to listen to music in that way. There are different programs and features that I’ve never had before, such as wind reduction, a noise reduction for outside, I’m outside a lot, working outside a lot. There’s a restaurant program, there’s the ability to clarify speech sounds and also filter out noises, background noises and such. Those are pros for me. I didn’t think I would use different programs very much but I’ve found that I very much enjoy them. Some negatives I guess, so I’m gonna show you them now. Some negatives. This goes on the negative side actually. So, I have never worn a hearing aid before that is so small, it is only a con I guess I would say because I have never worn one, and it’s not even really a con, that is so, you see the dome and you see the wire here, that’s what you pull on to get it on and off, for me that at first was a con because I’ve never worn hearing aids that you put it on and off by taking the wire, you have to push your finger in towards the eardrum, to get this piece in your canal, and you pull out on the wire, and to me that was like very counterintuitive, I was like oh my goodness I can’t do that, I’m gonna break it. Like I said it’s not even like a real con because I’ve gotten used to it, in the last couple weeks it’s no longer like a big issue, but at first I was like oh my goodness these are really fiddly and strange, but they’re actually great, and the dome ended up being a pro too because they’re really comfortable. It’s a different feeling from having an ear piece and I thought oh I’m gonna have like these really plugged ear feelings going on but they’re good, I enjoy them a lot. I would definitely recommend them, I’m trying to think of specific reasons why that I have not already stated, I guess I’d recommend them because of the fit. It is very convenient, the domes are very convenient. The programming, the streaming, the Bluetooth, that’s definitely a major pro for me and I would recommend the ReSound. A piece of advice that I would share with everybody is look, hearing aids are really hard to buy, and I guess, if you’ve never been there you don’t really understand it, but it’s super overwhelming, there’s like way too many options out there, they’re super expensive, it’s like a major financial commitment, for those of us who pay out of pocket. Piece of advice, it was a huge gift to stumble upon the ZipHearing videos. Okay, so they do reviews on different hearing aids, I learned about major brands, that are kind of like go-tos, that really narrowed it down from like hundreds of options to like 6 major brands, so I was able to go from there, and single in on what I purchased. So my advice to you would be to go with ZipHearing, or any other reviews you can find on Youtube, or talk to other people that wear them, get as much advice as possible, because I had been given other advice, by a different audiologist, for a different pair, and I just didn’t feel right about it. I didn’t feel right about the brand for me, and I’m glad that I kept looking. I’m glad that I found ZipHearing and I’m glad that I found the ReSound One 9. Thanks

I’m really impressed

Review by: Scott from NC
Model: ReSound Omnia 7 RIE 61 Rechargeable
Bought: Aug 2022

Hi, I’m a minister and hearing is very vital to what I do. I got ReSound hearing aids and I love them. I’ve got a hearing loss that I can’t understand the words, but with the ReSound, you see them here, they’re discreet, they’re in my ears, and I can actually hear people talking, in the background, in front of me, I can watch TV without blasting everybody out of the room. It’s a very positive product, a very good product. I’ve had a pair before that lasted a good 7 years and I got them renewed for up to 10 years, and I just got a new pair, I’m hoping to get another 10 years out of them. But I recommend them, I recommend the people, Rick, who did it, my buddy, just an excellent person. But um, I’m really impressed with the product and it’s very good for me, thank you.

These do not show much improvement

Good Sound Quality. My mild Tinnitus is significantly amplified. My wife complains she hears the sound whenever I enter the room or sit next to her. After reviewing ReSound One on the internet prior to buying, Tinnitus reduction was mentioned. With my previous premium seven year old ReSound's this was not a problem. I bought the ReSound One's to hear better in noisy rooms like restaurants. These do not show much improvement.

Very comfortable

I've been wearing the ReSound LiNX Quattro 9 Rechargeable for approximately 2 weeks.
This is my first hearing aid, but I did have a 2 week trial of the Widex 440 F2 prior to purchasing the ReSound.
The ReSound is easy to insert and remove; I've had no difficulties with that aspect of the product at all.
I have worn it continuously for up to 18 hours. I find it to be very comfortable; there have been several times I've forgotten that I had them on.
They charge quickly and hold charge well so far. Streaming audio with Bluetooth does indeed impact charge longevity. I haven't yet done a lot of experimenting with how quickly streaming depletes the charge.
I have an phome running Android 9 so I have to use the Clip device for streaming. I expect the phone will update to Android 10 in early 2020, making the Clip unnecessary.
So far, I am very pleased with the sound quality. We are still in the process of tuning the device to match my needs, so it will only get better.
I think the device may need some work on streaming performance. I occasionally experience 1 second dropouts on either side from time to time when listening to music or audiobooks. Other devices connected to my phone via Bluetooth do not exhibit these dropouts so I know it its the hearing aids. These is nothing unusual going on when those dropouts occur (not low on charge, no interference from nearby Bluetooth devices, the Clip is with definitely within range, etc.).
Streaming sound is not as good as I expected, but I think I know why:
My hearing needs a boost on the higher frequency ranges, so when streaming plays, that is what the hearing aids do. During normal (i.e. non-streaming) use, the hearing aids provide a higher frequencies supplement to the lower frequencies from my normal hearing. Streaming therefore sounds different because I'm not getting the low frequencies anymore; the hearing aids are acting like hearing aids, not ear buds or headphones.
So, it would be nice if when the device is being used in streaming mode, that the frequency range could be expanded to make it sound more like an ear buds or headphones.
I'll have to talk to my hearing professional and/or ReSound to see if this is possible.
Overall, I like the product. It definitely improves my quality of life which is my primary objective.

Good, but some issues

Have not had chance to experience all environments yet, but speech clarity is better than my former ReSound version. I still need to take time to play with adjustments in a number of settings, but overall electronic options appear good. Challenge is to get the speech clarity without the harsh sounds when too much treble is increased, while still getting the volume necessary for the situation. Was getting lots of feedback with the ear buds initially. Karla at Hear on the Shore tried a variety of buds and we decided to do ear molds to try to eliminate the feedback. Don't have them installed yet to check the effectiveness. Dealing with ZipHearing and Hear on the Shore has been very good. Will have a more complete report a few weeks from now with new ear molds and a few adjustments.Charlie Shaffer

Everything sounds very natural

I got the new Resound One M&RIE 90 hearing aids and as a first time wearer I love them. Everything sounds very natural and they even do a great job in a noisy environment like a restaurant, where I can hear clearly without a lot of background noise. I definitely give these Resound Hearing Aids a Five Star Plus rating.

Excellent new hearing aids

The Omnia 9 powered by batteries 13 is incredible. I can now hear the doorbell and the phone ring. My voice sounds like my voice and the clarity is exceptional. The Omnia rechargeable was not reliable but I found the battery operated had clearer more natural sound and faster connectivity.The switch to the battery Omnia provided a much more satisfying experience. The app was faster and more automatic. Dealing with the courteous professional people at zip made buying hearing aids a comfortable process.

ReSound Enzo Q 98

The sound quality seems to be pretty good, as was the quality of other aids I tried from Phonak and Oticon. I chose the ReSound hearing aid because it seemed like it had more variability in the ways that the aid could be programmed. One thing all the hearing aids I tried seemed to lack was a directionality program which would only amplify sounds directly in front of the hearing aid. People with profound losses such as myself have a very hard time distinguishing what we want to hear from the "noise" in our environment. These aids seem to amplify everything, even in narrow directional mode, which makes it very difficult for me to distinguish the signal I want to hear from the cacophony of sound. Whereas, most people, and perhaps people with less severe hearing loss, may want to hear everything, for me it makes it almost impossible to pick up on the speech going on in front of me in a one-to-one conversation. I know that directionality is possible, because I have had hearing aids in the past that worked very well in reducing ambient noise and only amplifying what is in front. Since I just bought the hearing aid, I cannot speak to its durability, but other ReSound hearing aids I've worn in the past are still functioning, even decades after I bought them. One thing I noticed is that the ReSound hearing aids are susceptible to moisture, specifically in the form of sweat during athletic engagement. Even my new hearing aid got a little staticky during a tennis match, but returned to normal after being aired out. I believe there are other brands that may be more waterproof, as I believe they are given ratings to this effect.
