GN ReSound has launched the world’s first hearing aid made for the iPhone, which allows sound to be wirelessly streamed from the device to the hearing aid.

“It’s actually the smartest hearing aid in the world. It’s the best sound quality that money can buy… but, beyond that there’s a fancy part, and that is connectivity on iPhone [and iPad and iPod touch] and what it means for an MFI hearing aid is that you can stream sound directly from an hearing aid to to an iPhone in high quality stereo sound without an intermediary body-worn device hanging around your neck… It’s based on Bluetooth LE technology.” GN ReSound CEO Lars Viksmoen
