Every few years, there is a technology release in the world of hearing care that feels like a huge leap forward. From everything that I was reading in the run-up to the release of the ReSound ONE, it felt like this was going to be a big step forward.

That’s why, when it was released on September 1, 2020 – we invited a small number of trusted and experienced patients to trial this new technology. We fitted them and asked them to “put it through its paces” over 14 days and share their feedback with us.

In this article, I’m going to share what we discovered, what our audiologists think about this new technology, and whether we would recommend it to you. But first, let me explain why there has been so much excitement about this new hearing technology.

How is the ReSound ONE Different?

Well, whereas nearly every hearing device for the past few decades has had the microphone behind the ear, the new ReSound ONE has the microphone within your ear canal.

What this means is that you’re able to hear frequencies that otherwise would be inaudible. This means that rather than amplifying all noises, this new technology allows you to pick out the sounds that you’re focusing on.

For example, in noisy environments like restaurants, it allows you to clearly focus on conversations and removes the background chatter or clatter of plates; or in meetings, it allows you to focus on conversations without the noise of the air-conditioning swirling in your ears. This delivers clarity that no hearing devices have previously been able to achieve.

It also comes with features such as rechargeable batteries that boast over 30 hours of battery life with a handy charger case and Bluetooth connectivity to connect your devices to your cell phone, television, or computer to stream audio or phone calls directly to your ears.

What Was Our Patients’ Feedback Following The Trial?

We had no idea what the feedback was going to be like, but knowing that our recommendation relied entirely on our trusted patients’ thoughts/experiences, we were eager to hear their feedback.

Here’s what they had to say: 

 

Across four of our most trusted patients, they all rated the ReSound ONE as 10 out of 10 and said that they would recommend them to others.

What Do Our Audiologists Think About Them?

The next thing we needed was the opinions of our audiologists.

Having fitted many variations of technology from many different manufacturers, our audiologists have utilized technology to help tens of thousands of people to achieve better hearing.

Here’s what they had to say:

“Not only has the physical fit of the hearing aids been extremely comfortable for patients, the sounds seem to be much more distinct. Users are better able to understand speech than they have in years, and that seems to be due to the new processor as well as the new receiver, which utilizes a third microphone placed in the ear canal to mimic the way persons with typical hearing are able to hear sounds.”

Do We Recommend The ReSound ONE?

With every patient that trialed the new technology rating it 10 out of 10 and with our audiologists singing its praises, we have decided to add the ReSound ONE to our selection of hearing technology that we recommend to patients based on their unique circumstances.

The technology has majorly impressed us and it’s a huge leap forward for hearing aid wearers across the globe.

What Was Betty's First Experience at Audicles Like ...
“My first sign of hearing loss was gradually realizing that I couldn’t hear and was missing too much. My first impressions of Audicles were that I would recommend them, they had a good reputation and local. I knew that I needed help and found them very easy to work with, very thorough and very likable. Hearing aids have impacted my life a great deal, I was missing too much of what was going on. My advice to anybody considering visiting Audicles would be that they’re an excellent choice and I think they would be very happy with them.”

What Would Brian Rate Audicles Out of 10? ...
“I first realized I had signs of hearing loss in the early 90’s, my biggest fear at the time was having to wear hearing aids and feeling old and deaf. I went to visit Audicles and if I had to rate my first impressions on a scale of 1 to 10 I would give them a 12+. From day one of having my hearing aids, everything changed, when I take them off the world goes to only 50% hearing, so they really have positively impacted my life. I always recommend Audicles so if you are considering visiting, I would highly recommend and refer Audicles and Tracey Board.”

Dr. Watson’s passion to help kids hear better was very heartwarming ...
“My first signs of hearing loss started in 3rd grade, I had problems with my teacher, which in turn led to having a hearing test, which found high frequency hearing loss in my left ear. Audicles made me feel very comfortable right from the start and Dr. Watson’s passion to help kids hear better was very heartwarming, enough to keep me as a patient for 30+ years. My hearing aids have become a true blessing as I have gotten older, if you are considering visiting Audicles, don’t wait! They truly go above and beyond to help you.”

What Happened at 4 Year Old Hunter's First Appointment ...
“Hunter was just four years old when we found out he had a profound hearing loss in both ears and as his parents we were so worried Hunter would have to live with this disability and would always be considered different. As soon as his hearing aids were turned on, he ran to the window and said “trucks.” He could hear the traffic for the first time. When we got home to his Memi’s house, he could hear the peacocks and he was so excited … it was priceless. The impact hearing aids have had on Hunter’s life is incredible, Hunter says “I am able to live a normal life and communicate easily with my family and friends. I love to hunt and fish, which are two things I can do better when I can hear.” For anybody considering visiting Audicles, we would not consider taking Hunter anywhere else, they are the most caring people you will ever meet. We love Dr. Board and all of the staff, they are extremely helpful and welcoming at all times.”

There is Never a Better Time to Do It Than The Present ...
“I noticed the first signs of hearing loss at work, as I work with children in my teaching job, I found it harder and harder to hear them. My family were also giving me a hard time about the TV volume. I was so ready to increase my quality of life and not miss anything so I had no fears about visiting Audicles for my first appointment. I was made to feel right at home! They were professional, kind, patient and explained everything. Hearing aids have impacted my life in a big way, I can hear my grandchildren. I have been able to use mics and the technology offered for a variety of purposes was all for the good. If you are considering visiting Audicles, just do it! There is never a better time than the present. What do you have to lose?”
