ReSound Vea is the latest entry-level family of hearing aids to be launched by ReSound. As ‘new’ technology filters down the ranges, the end result is a good combination of tried and tested features, at a more affordable price. WARP compression, feedback management, sophisticated noise reduction, whistle control and directionality options are available in 3 Vea categories.
In the ReSound Vea 3, the hearing aid models with two microphones offer Adaptive Directionality with Integrated Wind Noise Management. This would therefore be available in the mini-BTE V60; the standard BTE V70; power BTE V80 or the in-the-ear V50. Adaptive Directionality takes in the input from the microphones and changes directional characteristics to what is most advantageous for the wearer based on the intensity and direction of the noise. Situations where Adaptive directionality is useful are where the signals of interest are in front of the user with noise to the sides and back.
Alongside the advanced directional system, the ReSound Vea 3 has a further SoftSwitching option. This setting is available only on Vea 3 products. SoftSwitching has long been used in ReSound hearing aids, and uses acoustic analysis of the listening environment to control whether the hearing aid processes in an omni-directional mode or applies Adaptive Directionality. This is particularly appropriate for wearers who want the benefits of directionality, but who don’t want to/or can’t switch between programmes or have difficulty remembering when to do so.
