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.
"One of the frequently cited reasons for not treating hearing loss is the financial cost and Resound now launches a compelling suite of hearing aids in the essential category, allowing more people to access great hearing care." Resound
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 benefitting 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 launched in ten hearing aid models, including the successful rechargeable Receiver-in-Ear (RIE) design, custom-made, super-power 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.
Rechargeable hearing aids (RIE): The longest duration of power, which is easily charged with a discreet charging case.
Receiver-in-Ear (RIE): This main design sits subtly behind your ear, while the receiver sits in your ear. Also available as a mini RIE.
Behind-the-Ear (BTE): The receiver is built into the body of the hearing aid and sounds travel via a clear tube into your ear canal.
Custom-made: Almost invisible wireless designs that sit inside your ear, custom-made to match your ears.
With Resound Key and the Resound Assist Live app, you can access professional support remotely - offering a great telehealth solution to those with hearing loss. Your audiologist can make adjustments, reprogram and organise video consultations. So you can have the confidence to organically evolve with your hearing aid devices, learn to grow with your hearing and develop a professional relationship with your audiologist.
