COPENHAGEN, Denmark--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ReSound®, a leader in innovative hearing technologies, announced today that it has expanded the number of Android devices compatible with the ReSound portfolio of Smart Hearing™ aids via the ReSound Smart™ app. Compatible devices now include the Samsung Galaxy S®4, Samsung Galaxy S®6, Samsung Galaxy S®6 edge, and Samsung Note® 4 – representing millions of additional users who can now gain access to the personalized control of ReSound Smart Hearing through their smartphones.

Launched in early 2014, the revolutionary technology found in ReSound Smart Hearing aids allows wearers to personalize their hearing like never before. Through increasing compatibility with several of world’s most popular smartphones, an even larger population can now enjoy the power of direct control over ReSound’s discreet and easily customized hearing solutions through the ReSound Smart app.
“At ReSound, it is our mission to harness the potential of technology to enhance accessibility for people with hearing loss. This is why I’m thrilled that we were able to expand the number of our Android-compatible devices to include even more of today’s most-used smartphones,” said GN ReSound CEO Anders Hedegaard. “Now, there is a whole new network of Android users who can achieve greater control of their hearing with our connected, personalized solutions. And, we remain committed to increasing the number of devices compatible with the ReSound Smart app to bring this access to as many as possible.”
ReSound’s technology puts control at the wearer’s fingertips through the ReSound Smart app. Now available on these additional Android devices, the ReSound Smart app allows users to adjust their hearing aid settings based on personal preference and listening environment, through these options:
- Adjust preferred volume, treble, and bass levels
- Personalize listening situations involving speech, background noise, and wind through multiple sound enhancement features
- Geo-tag frequently visited places – such as home, work, favorite restaurants and more – to automatically switch to preferred settings when arriving at those places
- Employ the ‘Find My Hearing Aids’ function to pinpoint hearing aids if misplaced
- Activate sound streaming to hearing aids from other ReSound devices (such as the ReSound Unite™ TV Streamer 2)
