Also in their arsenal, is the Completely In Canal (CIC), the Invisible In Canal (IIC), and the 675 battery-operated super power Behind the Ear (BTE).

Innovations

GN Resound were the first company to launch smartphone compatible hearing aids. Utilising the 2.4GHz waveform, they were able to control their hearing aids with a Bluetooth enabled smartphone. This also enabled direct streaming of media/phone calls into the hearing aids.

In 2009, GN Resound launched an innovative new design to their custom In the Ear (ITE) hearing aids; called the Remote-Microphone. The Remote Microphone is a wired mic, that is placed in the helix of the pinna, to better enhance directionality and improve performance in background noise. By utilising the ‘pinna effect’, Remote Mic hearing aids are able to outperform other custom products.
