CochlearTM, a global leader in implantable hearing solutions, has entered into a Technology Development and License agreement with GN ReSound to leverage our 2.4 GHz wireless technology.
CochlearTM offers implants and bone anchored hearing technologies for hearing impaired individuals who are unable to use ordinary hearing devices. The adoption of GN ReSound’s wireless technology by Cochlear™ reinforces the superiority of 2.4 GHz as a wireless platform.
One of the benefits of 2.4 GHz technology is that it enables the end-user to receive streamed sound directly without wearing an intermediary device around the neck. We know that eliminating body worn streamers and being as discreet as possible are priorities for hearing aid users. Currently, GN ReSound is the only hearing aid manufacturer to use 2.4 GHz wireless technology in our hearing aids.
