HLAA Showcase Webinar: Addressing the Number One Issue with Hearing Aids: Hearing Speech in Noise Presented by ReSound

December 19, 2022 @ 2:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Join by computer or mobile device.


When: Monday, December 19, 2022
Time: 2-2:30 p.m. (ET)

Hearing speech in noisy situations is one of the top auditory difficulties for people with hearing loss, even when wearing hearing aids. At GN ReSound, we are always thinking of ways to improve hearing in noise, with upgrades to the technology inside the hearing aid and by leveraging the tech we already use in our everyday lives. This webinar will discuss the latest developments in ReSound technology, including our newest receiver-in-the-ear hearing aid OMNIA. Clinical studies have shown that OMNIA provides the best speech understanding in noise we’ve measured in our products yet. Details on OMNIA’s design and supporting research will be presented, along with other ways our hearing technology can be used to hear your best in noise.
