ReSound OMNIA Accessories

The ReSound OMNIA hearing aid range also comes with a set of compatible accessories. Besides the basic and advanced remote controls, users find themselves gravitating towards integrating their hearing aid devices with their smartphones. With the ReSound Smart 3D app or the Apple device’s native features, users gain full control over their hearing aids.

The smart looking ReSound TV streamer accessory deserves a mention, delivering an immersive audio experience for television watchers. Additionally, the ReSound Micro Mic and Multi Mic accessories enhance hearing aid functionality by acting as direct-to-hearing-aid voice streamers, table microphones, and remote microphones.

ReSound OMNIA Customer Reviews

Since its UK launch in late 2022, our audiologists have had the opportunity to recommend and fit ReSound OMNIA hearing aids for a wide range of clients, and the customer testimonials we’ve received have been nothing short of incredible.

In particular, our clients have commended the ReSound OMNIA’s effortless integration with Apple’s iOS operating system, making their hearing aids easy to manage and adjust on their iPhones. However, it’s worth noting that a few Android users have reported occasional connectivity hiccups.

For our customers, the hearing aid’s excellent wind noise reduction has been another feather in the cap for OMNIA. This feature has significantly improved our clients’ outdoor experiences, bringing a refreshing change to their audioscape.

Another standout for customers is the ‘Front Focus’ feature, exclusively available in the OMNIA 9 model. This feature has received rave reviews, especially from clients who frequently navigate noisy environments. ‘Game changing’ is a phrase we hear quite often in the audiology industry, however, for the Front Focus feature, it is definitely worthy of this description.

Further, the music enthusiasts amongst our clients have sung the praises of the enriched quality of music they receive through their ReSound OMNIA devices. Comfort has been another win for OMNIA, making the adjustment period for new users a breeze.

Audiologist Perspective

From an audiologist’s standpoint, the OMNIA devices are quite the marvel. Their easy fit and alignment with real ear measurement (REM) targets make for a smooth fitting process.

Despite some initial steep learning curve, training new users to change the (easily-blocked) filters has proven to be effective, ensuring continuous, clear sound.

Supporting customers to pair their devices with their accessories is smooth, enhancing the overall user experience. However, we did observe minor connectivity issues with custom ITE devices, all of which were resolvable.

Interestingly, some users reported their own voice sounding slightly tinny upon first fit, particularly when compared to other devices. However, this is quite normal and is likely to fade over time, leading to a more natural sound experience as the brain gets used to the amplification.

ReSound OMNIA Final Thoughts

We’re in no doubt that the ReSound OMNIA hearing aid has surpassed all previous ReSound devices in terms of technological innovation and customer satisfaction. The addition of the mini RIC model is a commendable move that has resolved many previous concerns related to the size of the original rechargeable RIC.

OMNIA’s sophisticated background noise reduction technology, especially when combined with the multi-mic accessory, has revolutionised the listening experience for individuals navigating complex auditory environments.

In our experience, the ReSound OMNIA hearing aids have not only significantly improved our patients’ hearing experience but also enhanced their overall quality of life. We’re excited about the possibilities that future iterations of ReSound products will bring, and we remain committed to delivering top quality audiology services.
