Organic Hearing

The ReSound Organic Hearing philosophy lets you connect to the world around you in the most intuitive and natural way.

We make this happen by developing hearing solutions that work with your individual ear anatomy to more closely mimic how sounds are naturally collected and delivered to your brain. This frees up your brain's 'hard drive' for other activities rather than having to concentrate all your energy on listening.

With a foundation of Organic Hearing, our hearing aids deliver the whole sound picture, so you can select the sounds you want to listen to – and tone down the ones you don't.

A long legacy of  Innovations

The ideology behind our hearing solutions is holistic. We consider both your hearing and the different ways you use it in your daily life, which we believe will give the best and most individualised experience with your hearing aid.

Our innovation milestones

ReSound was the first hearing aid manufacturer to understand and apply new knowledge about the inner ear to compensate for damage to it’s delicate structure. We later refined the frequency resolution of this feature based on a model of the human cochlea with our WARP-based processing.
ReSound engineered a design that was small, virtually invisible on the ear, and left the ear canal completely open. This allowed people to benefit from amplification of sounds they had trouble hearing without interfering with sounds they could hear naturally.
ReSound looked beyond the technology to the intricacies of the human brain and how it integrates sound from both ears. We developed a way to apply directional microphones that give a better hearing in noise without cutting out the surroundings. We continue to follow this binaural strategy today.
The brain relies on important acoustic cues from both ears that are disrupted by directional processing. By splitting the input sound into bands and applying directionality only in the area where it contributed most to speech intelligibility, we could keep these natural cues intact while still helping hearing in noise.
The way people naturally use their hearing extends to how they interact with today’s technology. ReSound saw an opportunity to increase accessibility to consumer audio without stigmatising the user with cumbersome extra devices. We established new standards for accessibility for hearing aid users that has given them expanded opportunities to live a more natural and fulfilled life.
By adding a third microphone inside the ear canal, ReSound creates the next evolution of Organic Hearing. It’s our most indivdualised solution that uses the ear anatomy to collect sound the way nature intended.
Balance nature with science

We take the Organic Hearing approach because we believe that inspiration should come from how we hear and interact naturally with the world around us.

Our goal is to balance nature with science in perfect harmony, designing hearing solutions that perfectly fit your life, instead of requiring you to fit your life around your hearing loss.

Organic Hearing isn’t a new concept to us. The legacy of Organic Hearing naturally includes many examples of groundbreaking innovations.

The next evolution of Organic Hearing

Our organic approach differs from other more traditional hearing aid solutions.

Organic Hearing, as featured in ReSound ONE, enhances your experience of the acoustic environment, helps restore biological function, immerses you in a rich sensory space, and provides a transparent sound that is unique to you, like nature intended.

ReSound ONE comes in a broad variety of colours
