New products hit the market all the time, and we keep our eye on every one of them. Not all the products are worth mentioning, but we think many people with benefit from this one. 

As prescription hearing aids get smaller and more sophisticated, they also come with millions of marketing dollars to try and convince you they’re worth it. Based on the features being offered, the new ‘Custom’ made by ReSound doesn’t need any fancy commercials. 

Below, I’ll explain a bit more about why this device is so special.

What’s New?

  • The problem with smaller hearing aids is that people with dexterity issues can struggle with handling them or making adjustments to the settings. This new version has a large button that is placed over the main face plate, making it easy to access for anyone.
  • Hearing better is the main attraction of getting hearing aids, and these will increase your ability to hear in noisy settings by 40%. This is a huge jump from their previous model and it is excellent at distinguishing directional hearing.
  • Hearing aids are only as good as their battery life, and this is one of the longest you can get. Many other brands say they last all day, but what that means is that they die after 12-14 hours. These last the full 24 hours and are charged via easy-to-use charging inserts on each one.

What Is My Personal Opinion?

One of the significant aspects here is that they are entirely in your ear. This is great for those who wear glasses and/or masks. You can easily keep them in throughout the entire day without fear of them falling out or losing battery power.

It also can connect to iPhone and Android systems, so no matter what device you have, you’ll be able to take full advantage of all its features.

Who Will Benefit the Most?

Those With Dexterity Issues — Due to the large button and easy charging features, anyone who has trouble with small circuitry won’t have a problem handling these.

Active People — Being in the ear canal provides a snug fit that stays put. You can easily walk or jog with them, and they will stay in place. Worry less about any surprise rain storms as well because these are water-resistant.

Previous ReSound Users — You still get the same quality and customer care that ReSound has always provided. Many of the interfaces are the same or similar, so there is less to get used to, and you can start reaping the benefits immediately.

People Who Make A Lot of Calls — These will be great for anyone who spends a lot of time on the phone. Whether it’s a cell phone or landline, the Custom hearing aids sit deeper in your ear, so holding a phone to your ear is made much easier.

Anyone With Glasses or Mask Requirements — Sitting in the ear canal is perfect to avoid any frustration with these two common aids. These can be just as important as taking care of your hearing, so ensuring that your remedies don’t clash with one another is something ReSound has already thought of.
