Hearing aids have seen many facelifts during the past 100 years.
Not only have they shrunk in size, but they’ve also acquired technological features way beyond their inventors’ imagination.
With full digitization, smartphone connectivity, and special features like remote assist, today’s hearing aids are smart and highly sophisticated devices.
Of course, pretty much every manufacturer strives to surpass its current product’s features, which brings us to now.
The ReSound ONE has just become available, and many believe this new model will redefine its wearers’ experiences.
How The ReSound One Could Be Revolutionary
At the moment, a handful of our patients are putting the ReSound ONE to the test. They will soon tell us about their experiences and how the new devices enhanced their hearing.
The overall feedback is promising, though. And as hearing professionals, we can understand why.
Unlike most hearing aids, which capture sounds via a microphone located behind the ear, the new device places a third microphone and a receiver inside the outer ear canal.
Therefore, it mimics the way people use their ears to hear, using the outer ear to register the position and frequency of different noises just as nature intended.
To learn more about the ReSound ONE, or to trial it at no cost, give us a call at (325) 437-4730.
For your safety and convenience, all of our forms are now digital and can either be completed via our website, or we will send them to your personal email before your scheduled appointment for completion.

Hearing Loss Is No Barrier for Filmmaker
While deaf film maker Chase Burton was working on his latest film project, one of his tasks was to select the “right” kind of music soundtrack for it.
A job like this might seem impossible to anyone who is hard of hearing, but Burton pushed all obstacles aside and arrived at an innovative solution.
Collaborating with California tech company Not Impossible Labs, he wore a suit that enabled him to “feel” music through his skin rather than his ears.
The suit, which consists of twenty-four vibrating points, positioned from the top of his back to his ankles, lets him know the intensity of various noises.
He hopes the suit will fare just as well outside the recording studio.
In a recent CNN interview, Chase said, “I see technology as a real opportunity to bring deaf and hearing audiences together and create a new kind of experience.”
Burton’s story is just one of many inspirational stories that share how hearing loss can be overcome with determination and vision. To read the full story, click here.
