Customs by ReSound Are Here—Are They Worth It?
ReSound is a leader in the hearing aid business. Their products are currently helping millions of people improve their hearing to maintain healthy relationships, careers, and lifestyles.
Whenever ReSound releases a new product, it’s exciting, and we’re looking forward to seeing how they will help the next generation of patients. This new product combines features from many different past devices to try and satisfy a wide range of hearing loss sufferers.
Let’s go over the details of this product to help you determine if it will help you or a loved one.
What Makes Customs by ReSound Special?
- Hearing better in loud environments is the main attraction of getting hearing aids, and these will increase your ability to hear in those specific situations. This is a huge jump from their previous model and is excellent at distinguishing directional hearing because of the multiple settings it comes with: all-around, restaurant, music, acoustic phone, outdoor, or ultra focus.
- A big concern with smaller hearing aids is that people with dexterity issues can struggle with handling them or adjusting the settings. This new version solves that by having a large button placed over the main face plate, making it easy to access.
- Hearing aids can only work when powered on, so your battery life is crucial, and this is one of the longest you can get. Many other brands say they last all day but what that means is that they die after 12-14 hours. These last the full 24 hours and are charged via the easy-to-use charging inserts on each one.
- If you are going to be wearing hearing aids for this long, they better be comfortable. Being able to customize these hearing aids is a huge advantage and makes it easy for you to wear them all day. This is an example of how they came up with the name, it seems.
Who Are They Best For?
If You Wear Glasses (or a mask) — It’s hard to imagine a company not considering this since millions of people wear glasses. Ensuring your hearing device doesn’t affect your other health issues is at the top of ours and ReSound’s list. These fit comfortably in your ear canal, so no matter how often you remove your glasses or mask, your hearing aids will stay securely in place.
Have Trouble with Dexterity — With a large button to easily access settings and change preferences, people who have struggled with other small devices won’t struggle with this one. It’s a top concern of many patients who look at small devices, but this also works with iPhone and android, so you’ll start with a level of familiarity.
People Who Already Use ReSound — If you’re upgrading your current ReSound hearing aids, then the transition for you will be seamless. Many of the interfaces are the same, you’ll already be familiar with the setup and how to change settings.
Anyone Who Makes a Lot of Phone Calls — Since our lives include a cellular device of some kind, ReSound made an effort to ensure your comfort during use. By fitting into your ear canal, these hearing aids sit far enough away from the edge of your ear so you can easily press a phone to it. This works for cell phones and landlines.
Outdoorsy Types — Due to their small size, they are perfect for active people who always want to be outside and on the move. Feel free to exercise and continue with your nature walks, as these are designed to fit securely in your ear. We can work together to get the proper fitting from day one. This will allow you to enjoy your favorite activities without the fear of losing or damaging your hearing aids.
However, despite all the great features, these would not work well for someone with any physical ear issues, active ear drainage, sudden or rapidly progressive hearing loss within the last 90 days, dizziness, profound hearing loss, overproduction of earwax, or pain or discomfort in the ear.
