Today ReSound hearing instruments are manufactured in Bloomington, Minnesota. G N ReSound produces a wide selection of hearing instruments.

ReSound says that they have always developed technology around how hearing and the ear work naturally. ReSound Air led the way for open fitting hearing devices.

There are three major types and styles of hearing aids offered by G N ReSound. The three types are behind-the-ear (BTE), custom in-the-ear (ITE), and Remote Microphone Technology.

The BTE hearing instruments consist of the traditional behind-the-ear, receiver-in-canal (RIC), and open fitting.

ReSound offers five different types of custom fit hearing aids:

• Full Shell (ITE)
• Half Shell (ITE)
• Canal (ITC)
• Mini canal
Completely in the canal (CIC)

Remote Microphone hearing aids is a new category developed by ReSound. The microphone has been moved to the outer ear and is connected to the main body of the hearing aid by a thin transparent tube. This style of hearing aid utilizes the natural shape of the ear canal to funnel and amplify sound.

Here is a list of ReSound hearing aids. The newest technology is listed first.
