  1. Could you post some tech tips for programing the VOT988-DW power models for musicians that play live music ? The programing features on the power model do not appear quite the same as on other models.

  2. My audiologist wants me to use a Verso 561, saying it is the newest and best product for me from your company. Is that true?

    1. Yes… Verso is the latest technology that is currently available. The recommendation made by your audiologist is based on your specific hearing loss. Your audiologist must think that the RIE model is best for you. There is a 9 and a 5 for the RIE. The 9 is better than the 5, but it costs more.

    1. Hi Thomas, those are the product naming conventions we use for our products. “VOT” means that it is a ReSound Verso TS product (designed for patients with tinnitus). “9” stands for the technology level of the hearing aid and “62” signifies the style. The “drw” signifies that the hearing aid has two directional microphones, is a receiver-in-the-ear style and wireless. If you’re interested in more information about hearing aids, you might want to consider contacting an audiologist near you. We’re also happy to answer any additional questions you may have!

  3. Recently purchased the resound Verso 7 hearing aids, with streamer and remote control. Problem the streamer worked great at first then my audiologist made some changes to program and now the right ear has a crackling or echoing sound. Resound replaced the hearing aid, which didn’t work, then the hearing aid was reprogrammed because resound tech support said the program was corrupt. This has not worked. Don’t know what else to do. Can you offer some help.

      1. Hi William, thank you for contacting ReSound. We’re sorry you’re running into this issue. Does the crackling occur only when you’re streaming or all of the time? If it is just when you are streaming we recommend contacting our Consumer Technical Support either via email ( or by phone (1-888-735-4327 and choose option 1) and they can help troubleshoot. If you hear it all the time, we recommend visiting your hearing care professional again. Your hearing care professional can connect with our Technical Support or Remote Support Audiology teams while you’re there to troubleshoot too. If you have additional questions, please let us know!
