MASSDEVICE ON CALL — Many people with hearing loss avoid getting help for years to avoid the stigma of the device, but new technologies that pair with iPhones may cast hearing aids in a new light.
ReSound introduced a hearing aid system it says can boost the outer ear’s natural ability to direct and amplify high frequency sound while also reducing wind noise.
Its Remote Microphone Technology also provides users a more appealing cosmetic look by tucking the microphone in the concha cymba area of the external ear, according to the Bloomington, Minn.-based company.
Harvey Fletcher, a scientist at Bell Laboratories, is widely credited with inventing the electric hearing aid — a cumbersome, body-worn device that debuted in the 1930’s.
Eighty years later, a Minnesota company is trying to solve a problem that has eluded decades of innovation: reconcile the problematic device with ordinary life.
Bloomington, Minn.-based ReSound recently introduced technology that can wirelessly stream sound from televisions, cell phones, computers and even iPods to a hearing aid.
