. Ipod touch
. Apple Watch.

Visit the ReSound website for the latest information on:

. Controlling the volume of mobile devices you are linked to by the app
. Using and adjusting a Tinnitus Manager to help mask the sound of tinnitus
. Adjusting your hearing aid for noisy environments, such as windy places, restaurants
. Using Global Positioning to remember `presets’ for specific locations, such as a park, or conference room
. Controlling treble and bass
. Helping locate lost hearing aids
. Using a mobile device such as an iphone as a `microphone’ to relay what people say across meeting tables, or in restaurants.

Reviewer: Jesal Vishnuram, Technology Officer, Action on Hearing Loss UK
Review: “…what’s interesting about GN Resound is that all their wireless hearing aids…can connect to your smartphones and tablets wirelessly, allowing you to hear the tinnitus masker straight into your hearing aid. In fact, it allows you to hear any audio output from your smartphone and tablet through your hearing aid.
The GN Resound LiNX and LiNX2 premium hearing aids can directly connect to your Apple smartphones and tablets and some Android models; other hearing aid models and Android devices currently require either the GN Resound Phone Clip or the GN Resound Mini Mic as a connector.
The Phone Clip functions as a remote control in addition to connecting to your phone, allowing you to easily change the programme function on your hearing aids as well as allowing you to stream music or any other form of audio directly into the hearing aids. The Mini Mic allows you to gain better speech understanding in noisy places by reducing the distance between yourself and the sound source, allowing you to hear the speech more than the noise – similar to a loop system. The Mini Mic can also connect directly to your smart phone or any audio output socket using a wire to stream the sound directly to your hearing aids.
Other hearing aid manufacturers have similar capabilities but most require an additional bluetooth streamer to connect your hearing aids to a smartphone.”
