ReSound's Unique Approach to Directionality: The Scientific Evidence and Resulting Benefits to Users
Jill Mecklenburger, AuD, GN Hearing

ReSound implements a unique approach to directionality which supports the hearing aid wearer’s natural ways of using their hearing. This technique involves augmented intelligence, using technology for low-level decision-making and SNR improvement to enhance what the auditory system already does well. This binaural directional strategy has evolved and improved over several technology generations. The evidence for the method and the benefits afforded to hearing aid users will be discussed in this session.
