Hands Free Calling with ONE on iPhone
GN Hearing, the global leader in hearing aid innovation, today announced that ReSound ONE™ hearing aids will offer hands-free phone and FaceTime calls from iPhone and iPad. ReSound ONE users will be able to answer calls with just a tap on their hearing aids and enjoy conversations with outstanding sound quality — all without ever having to take their device out of their pocket. This will become available in December of this year. The new technology is a great solution for conversations while multitasking, for example, when cooking, carrying groceries, being at work, or when the iPhone or iPad is simply out of reach.
Musician Sivu, who lives with hearing loss, has been trying out ReSound ONE with the hands-free technology: “Like everyone else I use my iPhone a lot to keep in touch with family and friends that I can’t see in person. With this new technology, it makes it a lot easier to call people without having to stop what I’m doing and hold my phone to talk. I don’t have to put everything down, which has proved useful in a recording studio environment. I can use my iPhone exactly the same way as I did before my hearing deteriorated which is extremely important to me.”
When connecting in person is challenging, making communication more accessible through technology is crucial, particularly for those living with hearing loss. Utilizing Apple’s recent iOS15 and iPadOS 15 software update with added support for bi-directional hearing devices, ReSound ONE hearing aids greatly improve the hearing experience for iPhone and iPad users with more efficient battery management, reliable audio streaming, and entirely new hands-free calling. ReSound ONE hearing aid users can stream all day long with confidence, knowing they are connected to the world around them in the most intuitive and natural way – something ReSound champions with their Organic Hearing philosophy.
In 2013 GN Hearing introduced the first Made for iPhone hearing aids that offered streaming directly from Apple devices. The new software update represents the latest advancement in Made for iPhone connectivity for hearing aids – an entirely new addition for the direct streaming of iPhone and iPad audio. GN Hearing continues to put the needs of people with hearing loss at the centre of innovation with these new standards in connectivity.
