In the summer of 2010, ReSound launched their Alera range of hearing aids. They are available in four technology levels, the Resound Alera 9 Hearing Aids, Resound Alera 7 Hearing Aids, Resound Alera 5 Hearing Aids and Resound Alera 4 Hearing Aids. Using cutting edge technology, they introduced a product line that was not only innovative, but suitable for almost everyone as it is available in a wide range of styles. These styles include:
This range also features the Alera TS, a hearing aid that not only offers a solution to your everyday hearing needs but has an extra feature that helps to relieve the symptoms of Tinnitus. The TSG (Tinnitus Sound Generator) produces sounds that take the focus away from the noise of your tinnitus, making it less noticeable and more manageable.
The Alera range also includes a wide range of excellent features designed to help you get the best out of your hearing aids. These features include:
All Alera hearing aids feature ReSounds iSolate Nanotech. This is an innovative new process that involves using nanotechnology to apply a highly waterproof coating to the hearing aid. This can prolong the life of the hearing aid by protecting it from substances such as earwax or water.
The Alera are wireless compatible hearing aids, so ReSound have developed a range of accessories specifically to help you enjoy this experience. What’s more, these products do not require you to wear an extra streamer around your neck, giving you discreet, but perfect wireless technology. These accessories include:
In conclusion, the Alera are excellent hearing aids with a range of colours and styles to suit your individual taste. They are available in a choice of technology levels and have wireless capability without the need for extra devices to be worn. If you are interested in this type of hearing aid but would like to take advantage of the newest technology available from Resound then you may want to try the Verso which has now superseded the Alera.
The Alera TS is a hearing aid that not only offers a solution to your everyday hearing needs but has an extra feature that helps those who suffer from tinnitus.
The Alera 9 has the full range of hearing aids so it would cater for almost all hearing losses. It has wireless technology in most models. Superseded by the Verso 9 in 2012.
The Alera 7 is mid level technology and despite not being quite as advanced, has the same number of channels and some of the same features as the Alera 9. Superseded by the Verso 7 in 2012.
Third level technology the Alera 5 still has a good range of features. It still has wireless capability, feedback suppression and noise reduction.
