Cochlear is strengthening the relationship with GN ReSound!

Last week it was announced that Cochlear Limited, global leader in implantable hearing solutions and GN ReSound, leader in Smart Hearing aids, will collaborate to develop the world’s smartest bimodal hearing solutions! The Smart Hearing Alliance will improve the hearing outcomes for more people of all ages with moderate to profound hearing loss.

GN ReSound CEO Anders Hedegaard says:

“GN ReSound is committed to advancing what is possible for people with hearing loss. This collaborative offering will help us change the lives of so many more people.”

Cochlear and GN ReSound have had a successful history of collaborating on technology and product development, resulting in the implantable hearing industry’s first bimodal solution using True Wireless. With GN ReSound’s leading 2.4 GHz wireless technology, recipients of Nucleus 6 and Baha 5 implants can stream sound directly to their ears completely without wires or bulky neck-worn components!

“This is a big step forward for our customers and professionals,” says Cochlear CEO Chris Smith. “The majority of cochlear implant recipients are bimodal users, so simplifying the management and improving the performance of their hearing solutions will be a huge benefit.”
