ReSound Hearing Aids

ReSound has been in the hearing healthcare business since 1943. Their motto is “Hearing feels like second nature.” They are part of the GN group, the global leader in intelligent audio solutions that let you hear more, do more, and be more than you ever thought possible.

ReSound pioneered the hearing aid industry in delivering 2.4 GHz technology in hearing aids to deliver direct connectivity. They devised the world’s first Made for Apple hearing aid with direct stereo sound streaming. ReSound now has streaming capabilities with both Apple and Android devices. Resound is a global company with unmatched research and development.

ReSound has a philosophy of intuitive and natural connection for their hearing solutions. Their products work with your individual ear anatomy to more closely mimic how sounds are naturally collected and delivered to your brain.

Their hearing aid solutions free up your brain’s “hard drive” for other activities rather than having to concentrate all of your energy on listening. This is a vital concept for the newest research and treatment for cognitive screening and hearing aids.

Adjusting sound input intensities for a more comfortable hearing experience was a major innovative step by ReSound with the development of WDRC (Wide Dynamic Range Compression), and feedback and distortion issues were eliminated thanks to the company’s DFS (Digital Feedback Suppression) system.

The first open-standard digital chip, produced by ReSound in 1992, allowed for improved programming flexibility and their 2003 open fit design helped limit the discomfort of a plugged ear canal and enhanced the capacity for hearing aids to provide a more natural sound.

ReSound has Remote Assist which allows a hearing aid specialist to receive programming adjustments for specific patients matching their needs. ReSound boasts a wide range of hearing aid choices with a vast array of support services including ReSound ONE.

They have the latest digital hearing aids, invisible hearing aids, Bluetooth hearing aids, fully rechargeable hearing aids, receiver-in-ear hearing aids, as well as accessories such as TV Streamer, Phone Clip, Remote Controls, and Multi-Mic to enhance and extend your hearing range.

Our hearing healthcare professionals can access the full spectrum of sales, services, and repair for all ReSound products and services. We use professional, comprehensive hearing assessments to accurately identify your hearing challenges and we guide you through selecting the hearing instruments that are best suited to address your specific type and severity of hearing, as well as meeting your budget and personal preferences.

A ReSound hearing aid is a “sound” choice.

Assessing Outcomes

To ensure the most success with your hearing devices, we measure the benefits of amplification at the end of your adjustment period—some of the surveys and tests included in the “Connect 365” Functional Hearing Assessment will be repeated to evaluate progress, quality of life, and patient satisfaction with the hearing aids. 

Wireless Connections

Most hearing aids automatically come with wireless streaming from smartphones and it has been a lifesaver for those that are working remotely and spending hours on teleconferences. As for other wireless accessories, the two most popular solutions are a small microphone used in less-than-ideal listening environments and a TV streamer that streams the TV’s sound directly into your ears—which can be a lifesaver when watching British TV shows or during football season. If your audiologist believes they would be beneficial for you, they will discuss your options and demonstrate the device in the office.

Orientation, Counseling, and Follow-up

Dr. Cliff (the creator of the Best Practice Pro Network) said it best:

“Having a detailed orientation can dramatically improve how much success you have with hearing treatment.  Counseling & Follow-up care can also ensure that you have success for years to come.  Regular visits to a hearing care provider who spends the time to discuss treatment related information and who will maintain your devices is extremely important.”

During the orientation, your provider will give you the tools you need to be a successful hearing aid user. Everyone has different learning styles and we want to make sure whatever works best for you is what’s used. After the 75 day adjustment period, routine checkups are necessary to maintain the hearing aids and to ensure optimal hearing healthcare. 

What Is Real-Ear Measurement?

Real-ear measurement (REM) is how an audiologist knows that hearing aids are working the way they should in each patient’s ears.

Ears are as unique as a fingerprint. Because of this, every ear will collect sounds differently.

Even if I had two patients with the exact same hearing loss and hearing aids, there’s almost no chance the hearing aids would be programmed the same way.

How do I know my new hearing aids are working properly?

Without verifying that the hearing aid is working correctly from the start, all of the other steps in the hearing aid fitting process are useless. The most sensitive quality control measure is something called Electroacoustic Analysis. We complete EAA on every new set of hearing aids, before delivery of repaired devices, and on an annual basis.

Prescription Hearing Technology with a Methodical Plan

Our community understands better than most what can be achieved when you combine technology with human intelligence and persistence. It is much the same with hearing technology.

The latest prescription hearing aid technology is incredibly powerful, offering stellar sound quality and performance. Wireless connections allow phone calls, music and television to stream directly to your hearing aids for exceptional clarity.

But hearing aids do not fit and program themselves! For best outcomes, you also need the human touch and expertise provided by our Doctors of Audiology.

A Comprehensive12-Step Functional Hearing Assessment

If you struggle to understand conversations in social situations, restaurants, or other noisy environments, you do not need to schedule a basic hearing test. You certainly don’t need to schedule a “free” hearing screening or online hearing test.

You need to schedule a “Connect 365” Functional Hearing Assessment at Alabama Hearing Associates!

Basic Hearing Test

A basic hearing test begins with an air conduction test. You will be seated in a soundproof booth and single-use, foam earphones will be inserted into your ear canals. The Audiologist will ask you to push a button or raise your hand when you barely hear a series of beeps (tones) presented at various frequencies (pitches) to obtain your air conduction thresholds.

To determine whether your hearing loss is a conductive (mechanical) loss, sensorineural (permanent) loss or combination of the two, we perform a bone conduction test.  

For this test, a head band is place on the bone behind one of the ears to obtain your bone conduction thresholds. This process provides a different form of sound transmission using vibration, which bypasses the eardrum and the middle ear bones and directly stimulates the auditory nerve. When you hear the beeps/tones, you will push a button or raise your hand.

If bone conduction thresholds are better than air conduction thresholds (through the foam inserts), you have a conductive hearing loss. This suggests a problem with the mechanical structures (moving parts) of the ears.

Conductive hearing loss is often a medically treatable condition for which we will provide you with a referral to an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) physician. However, if bone and air conduction thresholds match, it indicates a sensorineural hearing loss (permanent), and the treatment will likely involve hearing aids.
