ReSound has announced that it has launched a new hearing aid for kids called the ReSound Up Smart Pediatric Smart Hearing Aid. The device is the only pediatric Smart Hearing aid with Made for iPhone capabilities inside. The Made for iPhone capability allows support for speech and language development, educational skills, and social interaction.
The hearing aid has a battery-door lock and LED light that allows parents to check the status of the hearing aid and the battery quickly and easily. Audio can be streamed directly to an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. It can be used with the ReSound Micro Mic and Multi Mic and a choice of FM solutions to allow kids more opportunities to learn and discover.
A ReSound Smart app gives control over hearing aid settings with the ability to make real time adjustments based on personal preferences and the listening environment. The app lets parents control the child’s hearing aid including stopping and starting streamliners like the micro mic, multi mic, and the ReSound TV Streamer 2.
The app also saves geotagged settings for school or home. The app is available in the App Store for iOS devices and on Google Play for Android. The hearing aid comes in several colors and uses a special iSolate nanotech coating inside on components to repel dust and water as well as earwax and sweat. The hearing aid is available now at an undisclosed price.
