Smart Hearing Alliance Bimodal Portfolio Expansion


The Smart Hearing Alliance has recently expanded the bimodal portfolio to include a low-cost compatible ReSound hearing aid option. Through our strategic partnership with ReSound, we are able to provide every Cochlear™ Nucleus® Implant recipient the option to access bimodal hearing with compatible ReSound hearing aids that include the latest in technology, connectivity, and hearing performance. In addition to the ReSound Nexia™ and ReSound ENZO Q™ superpower options, the ReSound OMNIA™ strengthens our bimodal portfolio by providing technology and performance while meeting the needs of a broader group of Cochlear recipients with a more affordable solution.
