Collaboration with smarter hearing

Together with Cochlear, the global leader in implantable hearing solutions, we have a collaboration called the Smart Hearing Alliance. ReSound has a history of product and technology collaboration and in 2017, we proudly introduced a first-of-its-kind bimodal hearing solution – two different devices that work together to deliver a seamless hearing experience that’s MFi®. In 2019, we took that collaboration further, and introduced the first bimodal solution that enables direct audio streaming from compatible Android smartphones*.

*Full streaming compatibility with Android devices requires minimum Android v10 and Bluetooth 5.0 and that functionality has been enabled by the phone manufacturer and service carrier. Accordingly, the compatibility information provided should be used for reference only. Although ReSound strives to achieve seamless device compatibilities, ReSound cannot guarantee full compatibility with all Android devices.

What's a bimodal hearing solution?

Hearing aids and cochlear implants working together

A bimodal hearing solution is when you have a cochlear implant on one ear and a hearing aid on the opposite ear. 

It has been repeatedly demonstrated that users who have a cochlear implant on one ear can find great benefits from wearing a hearing aid on the other ear. Benefits discovered are:

  • Superior sound quality
  • Sound source localization (Spatial sense)
  • Speech recognition in noise
  • Music appreciation
