Recently, EarQ technology provider ReSound announced the launch of its latest, and most revolutionary, device. Available early next year, the premium device will be the first to enable wearers to stream music and phone calls directly from their iPhone.
This announcement comes on the heels of the release of a landmark patent from Apple.
On October 17th, the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple that would improve the iPhone’s hearing aid compatibility (HAC).
The patent is based on the thought that combining an audio signal with an anti-noise signal in the iPhone could allow for a clearer, more comfortable listening experience for those with hearing devices.
Chosen by EarQ for their innovation, ReSound is no stranger to the power of smart phone technology.
In March, ReSound launched its Control Mobile App which allows wearers to sync their digital hearing devices with their iPhone or android phone to manually control their devices’ volume and settings.
These latest advancements are a sign of how far hearing device technology has come in the last decade and an indication of how far they will go in the coming years. As the mobile-dependent Baby Boomers continue to age and find themselves in need of hearing devices, these types of technological advancements are not only impressive, but necessary.
