When a person seeks help for hearing loss, it is common for them to assume their hearing instruments will seamlessly allow them to hear well in any sound environment, especially where they have the most problems – in noise. ReSound realizes this is what users need most, and has made it our primary goal to develop technology that empowers users to navigate easily in ANY sound environment they encounter in their daily lives. This course will review the technology available from ReSound to help users in noise.
