The ReSound Smart app includes spatial sense, in which the hearing aids communicate with each other to help improve spatial awareness, directionality in hearing, and speech understanding.
Both hearing aids are priced within a range that begins at just under $2,000 and goes up to $3,000; the price varies with market conditions and according to the retailer.
