All About Hearing constantly has its ear to the ground when it comes to innovative hearing devices, and we are happy to announce some recent news: GN Hearing has launched a new rechargeable hearing aid called Custom made by ReSound. Global rollout began on June 29, 2022.
With an earbud design, Custom is proving popular with patients who would rather not wear a hearing aid over the ear and the Custom is comfortable enough to wear all day.
These hearing aids are different to ReSound’s other models in that they have several new features:
- Push button that is larger
- Better speech understanding in loud environments
- Better directional microphones with All-Access Directionality
- Customized shape thanks to 3D printing
What Do I Think of the Custom ReSound Earbuds?
I think these hearing aids are a good, rechargeable, in-the-ear hearing device. Depending on your needs, they could be a good hearing solution for you.
However, despite all the great features, these would not work well for someone with any congenital or traumatic deformity of the ear, 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.
Some aspects you might love about the Custom made by ReSound hearing aids are:
Phone compatibility – They work with both iOS and Android apps and you can stream to them wirelessly with Bluetooth Low Energy for hands-free calls on newer phones.
Charge – A single charge lasts for 24 hours. Even the charger is customized to hold your Customs perfectly.
Dexterity – These are far easier to manage than receiver-in-canal hearing aids with one-push button control, an especially helpful feature for caregivers.
Custom made – Custom’s shell designs are molded to your exact ear canal size in each ear. Measuring is done digitally, and it also means that the microphones in the earbuds can be directed at sound properly based on the angle of your ear canals.
Wind and moisture – The hearing aids are nano coated, water resistant, and sweat proof. They are also 30% better at reducing wind noise.
Mask wearing – Mask strings can sit easily over the ears when the Custom is in the ear.
Listening programs – You can choose which setting you want to control background noise: All-Around, Restaurant, Music, Acoustic Phone, Outdoor, or Ultra Focus.
Age of wearers – Because these are fitted by a hearing expert, Custom can be worn by children 12 years or older and adults. I expect this will make a dramatic difference to teenagers with a hearing loss.
Support – ReSound provides ongoing support via your local hearing care professional.
Is Custom Made by ReSound Right for You?
These are an excellent way to help your hearing loss, and by wearing these medical-grade hearing earbuds, you can rest knowing that you are helping prevent further damage to your auditory system.
