Update - New information
This hearing aid has now been superseded. The aids available in Resound's newest range are the LiNX2 9, the LiNX2 7 and the LiNX2 5. If you are working to a budget and are looking for a more basic hearing aid you may want to look at the Enya 4, Enya 3 or Enya 2
The Live 5 is the third level of technology in the Live range by ReSound. Like the Live 7 and 9, it is available in a range of models and colours.
- LV510 – CIC (Completely In Canal)
- LV520 – MC (Mini Canal)
- LV530 – ITC (In The Ear)
- LV540 – HS (Half Shell)
- LV550 – FS (Full Shell)
- LV570 – RIE (Receiver In Ear)
- LV561 – Mini BTE (Behind The Ear)
- LV571 – BTE (Behind The Ear)
- 9 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.
- Two Programmes – This would allow you to programme the hearing aid for two different environments e.g. Restaurant/Normal speech.
- Surround Sound Processor - This processes the different frequencies to preserve the sound quality. It also has a built in wind noise control system.
- DFS (Digital Feedback Suppression – Eliminates the whistling noise caused by feedback.
- Advanced Noise Tracker II - This is a sophisticated system that helps to remove background noise leaving speech clearer. It can be programmed for two different levels on the Alera 5.
- 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.
- Softswitching – This feature detects levels of sound and speech then slowly adapts the microphones to ensure a continuous comfortable listening environment.
- Adaptive Directionality – Rather than the focus of the microphone being fixed in one direction (i.e. forwards), this feature means that the hearing aid will detect which direction the speech is coming from and adjust the microphone to attain the best sound quality.
Like the other Live models, the Live 5 features their innovative iSolate Nanotech technology. Using nanotechnology, they 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.
In conclusion, despite being the third level of technology down, the Live 5 still has a good range of features. It still offers feedback suppression and noise reduction but at only 9 channels, it has 8 less than both the Resound Live 9 and Resound Live 7. Wireless compatibility is not available in the Live range. If this is something that would appeal to you then you may want to try the Alera 5. The Alera can be wireless enabled and has its own range of wireless accessories available known as Unite. You can view the complete range from Resound Live Hearing Aids here.
