Danish based GN Resound, which was recently acquired by Switzerland's Phonak Group for DKK 15.5 bn (USD 2.6 bn), is the first in the world to launch a rechargeable digital hearing aid, ReSound Pulse. Instead of changing the tiny batteries, users of ReSound Pulse can place each hearing aid in two charging bays overnight, so they are ready for use in the morning.
 
The innovation was presented yesterday at EUHA, an international hearing aid fair, held in Frankfurt. Jesper Mailind, managing director of GN Resound says: "The keyword for selling hearing aids is comfort. They must be small, smart and light. There is something old-fashioned about changing batteries in a high-tech product. So a hearing aid should be rechargeable. It makes it contemporary, in line with mobile phones or MP3 players." ReSound Pulse is specially designed for people with partial hearing loss.
 
GN ReSound Group ranks among the leaders in its industry with subsidiaries in 20 countries and distributors in 80 countries. GN ReSound is headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. The company offers a full range of hearing aids under brand names like GN ReSound, Beltone, ReSound and Danavox. The news was reported by national daily newspaper Jyllands-Posten.
