When you were told you had hearing loss and hearing aids were the solution, what were you expecting? A specially designed medical device built to restore some of your hearing? A chance to experience sounds a bit more clearly so you can better function in the world? That’s all true of hearing aids but there is so much more they can do to enhance your life. Today it’s all about accessorizing.
At North Houston Hearing Solutions L.L.C. we provide our patients with modern digital hearing aids from a range of leading manufacturers, including ReSound.
Let’s take a closer look at how some of the amazing accessories from ReSound can take your hearing aids from a necessity to a lifestyle accessory you’ll love to use.
Clear as day from far away
The ReSound Multi Mic is a small, inconspicuous microphone that you place onto a flat surface, say a table, and then sit back and let it do the work. It will detect the sounds of everyone around the table, whether it’s a conference table during your weekly office meeting or a dinner table at your family Sunday lunch. You won’t need to strain to hear what’s being said as the multi mic switches to a mode that is designed to pick up multiple voices. With a clear line of sight your Multi Mic will work at distance of up to 80 feet.
But it isn’t just great for following the conversation of a bunch of people around the table, it’s also ideal for those one-to-ones. Just ask the person you’re chatting to clip it onto their clothing and you’ll be able to take in every word they say even with background noise or chatter.
Does taking calls on your cell still leave you feeling anxious about missing words or losing the thread of the conversation? Does your cell have Bluetooth? Then the ReSound Phone Clip+ is just what you need. Clip it onto your clothing and stream calls, music, podcasts or other audio straight from your cell direct to your hearing aids.
A world of entertainment
Make your home entertainment system hearing aid-friendly with the ReSound TV Streamer 2. Stream crystal clear sound from your TV into your hearing aids and enjoy binge-watching your favorite show or relaxing in front of a movie after work. It’s designed to work from up to 23 feet away with a clear line of sight so it won’t matter where you’re sitting in the living room.
Forget about fiddling with tiny hearing aid buttons to change the volume or program settings. With the ReSound Remote Control 2, easy-to-use buttons make adjusting your hearing aids a breeze. Stash your remote control in your purse or pocket and whip it out whenever you enter a new sound environment, from the car to the office, from home to the shopping mall, wherever you need to be.
Accessorizing your hearing aids can make work easier to navigate, home more relaxing and life that much more enjoyable.
