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 the user’s life, instead of requiring them to fit their life around their hearing loss.
  • Organic Hearing isn’t a new concept to us. The legacy of Organic Hearing naturally includes many examples of groundbreaking innovations.

Our history of innovations

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 users better hearing in noise without cutting out their 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.

The next evolution of Organic Hearing

This organic approach differs markedly from other more traditional hearing aid solutions.

Organic Hearing, as realised in ReSound ONE™, enables enhancement of the user’s experience of the acoustic environment, helps restore biological function, immerses users in a rich, externalised sensory space, and provides a transparent sound that is unique to the individual , like nature intended.


Organic Hearing in ReSound ONE

ReSound ONE showcases the best of Organic Hearing innovations with breakthrough technology that maximises sound quality and benefits by imitating the native strategies of healthy auditory processing.



Preserves and helps restore natural spatial cues by collecting sound naturally with the world’s first full-featured* M&RIE (Microphone & Receiver-In-Ear), and cue-preserving directional processing.

*Microphone in ear and two standard directional microphones, directionality features, wireless audio streaming

As the first hearing aid manufacturer to introduce 2.4 GHz-based wireless technology, including direct audio streaming from iPhone or Android™ smartphones to hearing aids, we established new standards for accessibility for hearing aid users.

This has given them expanded opportunities to use consumer audio devices as effortlessly as anyone, regardless of hearing status.


Easy connectivity to smartphones either with a phone accessory or via direct streaming improves speech understanding on the phone by 45% compared to holding a smartphone up to the ear.

Adding visual information via a chat app helps even more. Direct streaming of audio from smartphones without having to switch to other headphones or earbuds makes the experience simple, effortless, and natural.

ReSound has been a leader in giving users app-based ways to interact with their hearing aids. Controlling their personal sound via a tool that is already an integral part of many peoples’ lives – a smartphone – is valued by users.

It supports their behaviour in an organic way since they are already engaging with their devices for other purposes.
