BALLERUP, Denmark – February 7, 2022 – GN Hearing, the global leader in hearing aid innovation, today unveils new ReSound ONE Behind-the-Ear models — powerful hearing aids that provide clarity in sound and convenient hands-free phone and FaceTime calls from iPhone and iPad.
GN Hearing expands the premium sound offering from ReSound ONE to help people with challenging hearing loss get the care and technology they need, with a truly individualized hearing experience. The impressive ReSound ONE technology is proven to deliver clarity in all environments, even in noise, without unwanted feedback. Users can connect seamlessly with the world around them, whether in a busy restaurant or on FaceTime with a friend.
All solutions under the ReSound ONE family will offer hands-free calls for iPhone and iPad, and they also offer direct connectivity for iOS and Android. Users can answer calls with just a tap on their hearing aid and enjoy conversations with outstanding sound quality — all without having to take their device out of their pocket. This is a great solution for conversations while multi-tasking, for example, when cooking, carrying groceries, being at work, or when the iPhone is simply out of reach.
Next to offering hands-free calls, the new ReSound ONE Behind-the-Ear styles deliver best-in-class rechargeability with more than a full day of use — up to 23 hours of use on just one charge — for worry-free use all day without the hassle of exchanging batteries on the go.
Built on the unique Organic Hearing philosophy, ReSound ONE Behind-the-Ear supports the brain’s natural ability to hear and delivers outstanding sound quality with technology adapted to each person’s individual needs, utilizing advanced All Access Directionality to support spatial awareness in all environments and Ultra Focus to support optimal one-to-one communication in noise.
GN Hearing CEO and President, Gitte Aabo explains, “Nobody should feel limited by hearing loss. I’m delighted that more people can now benefit from Organic Hearing with these new ReSound ONE hearing aids. People with challenging hearing loss can now enjoy great sound and connect with loved ones more easily.”
The new Behind-the-Ear styles join the popular ReSound ONE RIE (Receiver-in-Ear designs) with the ground-breaking M&RIE (Microphone & Receiver-In-Ear with an extra microphone in the ear canal) – all with new hands-free calls available from 25 February 2022. The new rechargeable ReSound ONE Behind-the-Ear line includes standard and power hearing aids, which will be rolled out in the U.S. and globally from February 25, 2022, along with equivalent Beltone Imagine Behind-the-Ear models.
