At ReSound, this thought process behind traditional RIC (receiver in canal) hearing aids has been challenged. Recognizing that each person's ear is as unique as their fingerprint led to the development of the Resound Omnia and marks a new era in M&RIE (Microphone & Receiver-In-Ear) hearing aids.
The Microphone & Receiver-In-Ear Design
The human outer ear naturally acts as an acoustic antenna, aiding the brain in identifying and focusing on different sounds, like singling out a particular voice in a noisy environment. Mimicking this effect is challenging with sound entering the ear from a microphone placed behind it.
The groundbreaking design of Resound Omnia's Microphone & Receiver-In-Ear takes into account individual ear shape differences. It captures sound right inside the ear, feeding the brain with all it needs to separate distinct voices while significantly minimizing background noise. This innovation has been enabled by the latest and most powerful sound-processing chipset from GN Hearing, a totally re-engineered receiver system, and Digital Feedback Suppression (DFS Ultra III).
Clinical trials show that compared to using microphones located behind the ear, 90% of users prefer the sound quality of Resound Omnia with M&RIE.
Ultra focus is a new software created by ReSound to tackle the most challenging listening situations. It uses a narrow pickup range to focus sound wherever the head turns. This can enhance speech comprehension by up to 30% compared to an omnidirectional microphone.
The Resound Omnia is compatible with the latest LE Bluetooth standard. The device's Bluetooth capabilities allow direct streaming of audio from Android or Apple devices. Resound Omnia connects directly to selected iOS and Android devices, enabling high-quality audio streaming to your hearing aids.
A Rechargeable Option
The Resound Omnia series offers a rechargeable option. Lithium-ion battery technology makes an entire day of comfortable listening possible, even while streaming audio from your favorite devices. With a battery life of up to 30 hours or 25 hours of continuous streaming, Resound Omnia boasts industry-leading rechargeable battery performance. Simply place your hearing aids in their charging dock overnight for fully charged devices by morning.
Resound Omnia also offers two alternative charger options that serve as stylish, portable, and durable cases. Opt for the Premium Charger with an inbuilt battery for quick charging on the go for up to three days without a power source. Alternatively, the Resound Omnia Standard Charger provides all the necessary at-home charging features in a compact, stylish form.
The hearing aid is paired with a companion app available for iOS and Android smartphones, enabling customization of its features.
