Hey, how are you?
Have you ever looked at the technology in your home and thought, “If I didn’t have this, I’m not sure how I’d cope!”?
Have you ever thought that about your hearing aids, too?
Hearing aid technology has indeed improved ten-fold in the last few years, what with digitization and smartphone connectivity, but can you believe it just got even better?
In September, a new hearing aid model was launched that many believe will redefine wearers’ experiences: The ReSound ONE .
Why the new ReSound ONE hearing aid might be revolutionary
Hearing aids do a great job of amplifying sounds for the hard of hearing wearer, but the makers of this device suggest it can improve the clarity of what wearers hear!
Unlike most hearing aids, this one more closely mimics the way people hear naturally, using the outer parts of their ears to register the position and frequency of different noises.
This makes it quite the breakthrough in hearing aid technology, but, like any good audiologist, we’re putting it to the test right now, so we can ensure it lives up to its claims.
Right now, a handful of our selected patients are trialing the ReSound ONE, so we can be 100 percent confident it stacks up.
So far, the initial feedback has been very positive, and as specialists, we’re excited about its capabilities.
If you’d like to get involved and trial it out for yourself, give us a call at (801) 657-4175, and we’ll happily tell you all you need to know and get you set up.

Inspiring Story About The Filmmaker Who Took On His Hearing Loss and Won
Fame comes with many challenges, but none so tough as the challenge of hearing loss.
But deaf filmmaker Chase Burton decided that his hearing issues weren’t going to get in the way of his dreams.
Working with California tech company Not Impossible Labs, he wore a specially designed suit on his film set that let him “feel” different sounds.
Made up of twenty-four vibrating points, positioned from the top of his back to the bottom of his ankles, this let him know the intensity of various noises.
“I see technology as a real opportunity to bring deaf and hearing audiences together and create a new kind of experience,” Chase told CNN.
