Resound Dot Hearing Aids & Reviews

Written by Paul Harrison

In 2008, ReSound launched their new product know as the Dot, one of the smallest hearing aids at the time. The Dot is a tiny, discreet BTE (Behind The Ear) hearing aid designed for people suffering with mild to profound hearing loss. Although it has only one style, it is available in a wide range of colours. Not only is the Dot cosmetic looking, it is also extremely lightweight. Weighing around the same as a paperclip, you will hardly even know it is there.

It has three levels of technology, designed for different types of listening environments. The Resound Dot 10 Hearing Aids is suitable for quiet listening environments, such as your own home. The Resound Dot 20 Hearing Aids is designed for environments with more of a moderate noise level. If you find yourself frequently in places or situations with a noisier, more demanding listening environment then the Resound Dot 30 Hearing Aids would be the most suitable option.

The Dot range of hearing aids are available with several features, these include:

  • Up to 17 Channels – Each channel processes a range of frequencies so the more channels you have, the more specifically it can be programmed to suit your hearing needs.
  • Up to Four Programmes – These are settings that you can programme for different environments or situations i.e. Restaurants, listening to music, basic speech.
  • Surround Sound Processor - This processes the different frequencies to preserve the sound quality. It also has a built in wind noise suppression system.
  • DFS (Digital Feedback Suppression – Gets rid of the annoying whistling noise
  • Noise Tracker II - This system is designed to eliminate background noise leaving speech clearer.
  • Onboard Analyzer II – This feature allows your audiologist to analyse the data from your hearing aid by logging the activity that takes place. The audiologist can then feed the data into a computer and review it.
  • Natural directionality – Only available on the Dot 30, this means the microphones use different systems having one ear as the ‘focus’ ear and the other as the ‘monitor’ ear. The focus ear directs the microphone to the front for speech while the monitor ear will pick up sounds from other directions so you can still hear what’s going on around you as well.
  • Softswitching – This feature detects levels of sound and speech then slowly adapts the microphones to ensure a continuous comfortable listening environment. 

 

 

In conclusion, the Dot has three levels of technology to cater for different levels of hearing loss and lifestyle. It is a discreet BTE (Behind The Ear) hearing aid available in a range of colours. The Dot has now been superseded by the Alera  and Verso ranges which offer a number of discreet models, wireless compatibility and a much faster processor.
