Behind-the-Ear (BTE) Digital Hearing Aids

ResoundAir Digital Hearing Aid

The ResoundAir, launched in March   2003, was one of the first in a new concept in hearing aids. Called an "open fitting" hearing aid, it is designed for people with mild high frequency hearing loss.

It weighs only a few grams and fits snuggly behind the ear. The amplified high-frequency sounds are carried down a very fine tube into the ear canal. No custom ear mold is required. The soft plastic tip fits comfortably in the ear canal, and allows the lower-frequency sounds to enter the ear canal naturally.

Because of its small size and comfort, most wearers find that they do not even notice it is there after a few minutes.

The ResoundAir is programmed by an audiologist for the person's specific hearing loss. It has no external controls. The aid is turned off by partially opening the battery compartment door. This aid uses a No. 10 size (yellow tab) zinc-air battery.
