COPENHAGEN, Denmark--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today’s release of the updated ReSound Smart™ app boosts ReSound’s industry-leading tinnitus management package, giving users unprecedented control of their tinnitus, or ringing in the ear. Building on the successful full family of ReSound LiNX2 Smart Hearing aids, which include a built-in tinnitus therapy sound generator, the new features in the app give even greater levels of personalization, flexibility, and convenience to the 90 percent of Americans with tinnitus who also have hearing loss. As the only company in the industry to offer a comprehensive, integrated tinnitus management package with personalized control directly through the app, ReSound continues to push the limits of what is possible for people ready to take control of their hearing health.
“Providing integrated control within the ReSound Smart app is a huge leap forward for people looking to relieve their tinnitus. We understand that people react differently as sound environments change, and want to empower them to adjust their settings as they go through their day,” said Michael Piskosz, MS, Senior Global Audiologist for GN ReSound. “We’re offering people personalization, flexibility, and convenience by putting that capability right at the user’s fingertips.”
The new tinnitus manager allows people to adjust a variety of settings, from simple tinnitus relief sound options to more advanced frequency shaping and sound variation settings for the white noise designed to match each individual’s specific tinnitus needs. While other tinnitus management systems require people to return to their hearing healthcare professional to make adjustments to settings, ReSound’s tinnitus manager gives on-the-go control to users looking to make changes in preferences based on time of day, mood, and listening environment.
ReSound also offers the ReSound Relief™ app for people who suffer from tinnitus, which serves as a sound therapy tool. The app is free for download in the App Store, and available for all users regardless of whether they have hearing loss.
The addition of integrated tinnitus management to the ReSound Smart app advances ReSound LiNX2 position as the most advanced and complete package for people with hearing loss. The company recently launched ReSound LiNX2, the fourth Smart Hearing aid to come out of GN ReSound’s proprietary 2.4 GHz wireless platform. With a full family of form factors, ReSound LiNX2 meets the needs of nearly every level of hearing loss.
Offering a broader range of models and prices, ReSound LiNX2 includes Spatial Sense, a new feature offering improved spatial awareness. Wearers can also experience rich, direct sound streaming from iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, allowing people to talk on the phone, make FaceTime calls, listen to music and even stream turn-by-turn directions directly through their hearing aids – effectively using their hearing aids as stereo headphones. And for the first time, people who prefer to wear custom molded, in-the-ear hearing aids can also enjoy Made for iPhone functionality.
“At ReSound, we are constantly innovating the most advanced solutions for people with hearing loss, and these features expand the ReSound LiNX2 platform in a way that is unavailable with any other hearing aid on the market,” said GN ReSound CEO Anders Hedegaard. “This is truly personalized control and an extension of our philosophy to bring users Smart Hearing like they have never experienced before.”
