ReSound Phone Clip Plus Tech Review


New From ReSound!


Last month I blogged on the different Unite accessories from ReSound (you can visit that blog HERE).  Among the different accessories I covered was the Phone Clip.  Since then, ReSound as made some changes and we are excited to introduce the Phone Clip+ to our readers.


The Phone Clip+ is the same size that its predecessor was; very slim and low profile, barely larger than a matchbox.  Don’t let its small size fool you, though…the new Phone Clip+ is compatible with smart phones.  Which smart phones, you might ask?  ReSound has designed apps for iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, and iPhone3GS running iOS 5 or later, and Android smartphones that are running version 2.2 or later.  To download the app for the Phone Clip+, simply go to the App Store or Google Play and get it for free.  Search for the app called “ReSound Control”.


Once you have downloaded the app, you will be able to turn your smartphone into “a cutting edge remote control for your hearing aids, phone conversations, and other wireless accessories”, per ReSound’s website.  You will have control over the volume and program settings any time you have your phone with you.  There are also sections on the app for troubleshooting your hearing aids if you have connection problems, as well as answering frequently asked questions.


Kudos to ReSound for taking a step forward and giving their users more power to control their hearing aids with their smartphones.  In today’s society, so very many people use their smartphones for nearly everything…banking, to check the weather, to keep in contact with loved ones, the list goes on…and now to adjust their hearing aids.  Technology is simply amazing.


Until next time…
