BALLERUP, Denmark – September 28th, 2023 – GN Hearing, the global leader in hearing aid innovation, today announces the launch of its next generation hearing aid family, ReSound Nexia, including two non-rechargeable RIE models and a new rechargeable microRIE. The microRIE is GN Hearing’s smallest and most comfortable style ever, packed with advanced technology and features. In addition, ReSound Nexia connects with Auracast™ broadcast audio enabling people with hearing loss to benefit from this new and exciting advancement in connectivity.
GN Hearing understands that struggling to hear speech in noise, wearing comfort, and ease of use are the greatest pain points for hearing aid users.2 A recent survey conducted by GN shows that on average, 1 in 3 hearing aid wearers make excuses not to go out because of the impact noisy environments will have on their enjoyment and would prefer to stay at home instead.3
Helping to address this problem, ReSound Nexia, top-rated for hearing in noise,1 delivers exceptional speech understanding in noise,4 while offering industry leading access to and awareness of surrounding sounds.5
The signature combination of 4-mic binaural beamformer and omni-directional listening vastly improves users’ access to speech from all directions and enables people to automatically hear their best across all listening situations, helping to improve how they interact with the world around them.
ReSound Nexia is equipped with Bluetooth® LE Audio, the new standard for connectivity. It allows multiple simultaneous connections and hands-free calls with other compatible devices, as well as higher sound quality with significantly lower battery consumption.
With Auracast™ broadcast audio, ReSound Nexia wearers will be able to hear important announcements in public spaces through their hearing aids, stream audio whenever they want, and share audio with family and friends, transforming how users experience audio in private and public spaces now and into the future.
Scott Davis, who will be leading GN's hearing business from 1st October, explains: “ReSound Nexia represents a significant leap forward in hearing aid technology. We know that 4 in 5 people change how and where they socialize to accommodate changes to their hearing. We want people to feel confident in noisy environments again. By delivering top-rated hearing in noise and supporting the incredible streaming capabilities of Auracast™ broadcast audio, ReSound Nexia will redefine the hearing aid experience and empower users to fully engage with the world around them.”
