Phonak: SoundRecover2

In 2016, Phonak released a technology called SoundRecover2. SoundRecover2 is a digital technology that enables high frequency sound to be translated into a low frequency signal. This allows people who have poor high pitch hearing, to hear high pitch sounds in a lower register, where their hearing is better able to process the sound. Phonak are also industry leaders in the use of remote microphones.

Remote microphones allow a sound to be transmitted to the hearing aid user using a Bluetooth signal. This allows the listener to hear sounds from some distance, as if they are right next to them. This dramatically improves hearing in noisy environments like cafes and restaurants, lecture rooms and open plan offices. Phonak’s latest development is to include directional microphones, touch screens, rechargeable, pass-around microphones and a multimedia hub into their remote microphone range.

GN Resound App

GN Resound have led the way integrating their hearing aid technology with Apple products. Now you can control your own hearing aids using your iPhone, iPad, iPod and in their latest development, the Apple Watch.

The GN Resound app, which is free, can be used to stream your TV, radio, and podcasts directly through your hearing aids. The app can be used to adjust the volume, reduce background noise and directionality of the microphone in your hearing aid. These very popular digital hearing aids are connecting people with their devices.
