Launched on 30/04/2021, Resound Key offers consumers a full line-up of hearing aid styles in their new 'essentials' range - which replaces the original, and now discontinued, Resound Enya. This range will give those with hearing loss a chance to experience clear and natural sound, advanced Bluetooth connectivity and convenient rechargeability at a great price point.
The Resound Key range incorporates the C5 processing chip platform, which was originally seen in the LiNX Quattro range platform. For clarification, you are benefitting from good sound processing, but in a lower-end Quattro model in this essential range.
Resound Key Hearing Aids - Accessible hearing solutions
Incorporating Resound's Organic Hearing philosophy, this digital hearing aid's extensive range will provide a hearing solution for a variety of hearing loss levels, lifestyle needs and connectivity preferences. You can enjoy direct streaming with both Apple and Android devices, as well as benefiting from low-energy Bluetooth.
In reality, far too many people with hearing loss neglect their health by not seeking medical help early and avoiding treatment. This is often due to the prices of hearing aids on the market. This is something that Resound wanted to challenge and with Key digital hearing aids, they are hoping that this portfolio gives people access to optimum hearing and professional hearing healthcare.
Resound Key is available in ten hearing aid styles, including the rechargeable Receiver-in-Ear (RIE) design, custom-made, super-power (SP) and Behind-the-Ear (BTE) options. Please remember that you do lose the direct Bluetooth streaming and rechargeable hearing aid functionalities with the lowest performance level - the Resound Key 2.
So, if connectivity and rechargeability are important to you, the higher specifications would be better choices.
But, to clarify: The rechargeable model is available at tech level 4 only. In terms of streaming – Technology levels 3 & 4 have direct streaming from iOS and Android (Android smartphones that support direct streaming). All technology levels – Resound Key 2, 3 & 4 work with the app (ReSound Smart 3D) and our wireless accessories.
