iPhone-Compatible Hearing Aids Help Users Do More Than Just Listen
Danish company GN ReSound announced its new smart herding aid, accessible through Apple products and has built-in GPS.
Hearing aids have usually only features one function: allowing the wearer to hear sounds around them. Thanks to Denmark-based GN ReSound, now those in need of hearing aid can do more than just listen in with them — they can connect it directly to their Apple smart device to control volume, receive directions, and find the hearing implement if it gets lost.
Announced at the Mobile World Conference, ResSound LiNX is a new set of hearing aids that connects to the iPhone, iPod, or iPad so that the wearer can control them remotely. The device also gives the wearer updates on traffic, helps them find directions by remembering specific sounds, or locate local restaurants, all at the touch of a button.
