ReSound Hearing Aids
The Danish manufacturer ReSound is committed to helping people rediscover hearing. Since 1943, ReSound has been a leader in the advancement of hearing instruments. ReSound is known for their Wide Dynamic Range Compression sound processing system and their Digital Feedback Suppression, both of which give wearers clear sound without whistling or buzzing. Now with offices in 25 countries and distributors in more than 80 countries, ReSound continues their mission to provide people worldwide with sophisticated hearing technology.
LiNX2 – Made for iPhone
ReSound is responsible for the world’s first Made for iPhone hearing aid. In 2014, they introduced the LiNX, which has since been updated to the LiNX2 in 2015. The LiNX2 builds upon its predecessor’s success, with the improved new feature of Binaural Directionality II, which gives wearers a natural listening experience in any environment. Spatial Sense and Surround Sound add to the LiNX2’s great sound quality, especially in challenging noise environments.
The LiNX2 is designed to connect wirelessly to the wearer’s iPhone. With this connectivity, wearers of the LiNX2 are able to stream phone conversations, music, and other media directly from the iPhone to the LiNX2 hearing aids. Using the iPhone’s GPS, the wearer’s preferences are geo-tagged in every space they inhabit and are automatically adjusted by the LiNX2 in subsequent visits. This gives wearers a highly personalized and seamless listening experience.
The LiNX2 is the “world’s smartest hearing aid,” and a resilient one too. The Smart App allows wearers to control program features and check battery life. The LiNX2 offers tinnitus therapy with Nature Sounds and is coated in iSolate nanotech, which protects the hearing aid from debris, dust, sweat, and water damage.
The ENZO2 is ReSound’s solution for people who experience severe to profound hearing loss. The ENZO2 enhances speech recognition and spatial awareness for wearers with a higher level of hearing loss. Equipped with New Binaural Directionality II, Spatial Sense, and Surround Sound, the ENZO2 also connects to personal electronic devices. The ReSound Smart App allows ENZO2 wearers to make adjustments simply and discreetly. Features available with the ENZO2 include: speech focus, comfort in wind, and comfort in noise.
For ENZO2 wearers who need an extra boost, the Live Listen function on the Smart App allows people to turn their smartphones into a portable assistive listening device. The iPhone microphone picks up and amplifies sounds that ENZO2 wearers wish to hear, and delivers it directly to the hearing aids. ENZO2 is coated in iSolate nanotech, and is significantly smaller in size than other similarly-powered hearing aids.
Other Styles and Features
All ReSound hearing aids are fully customizable to meet specific hearing needs. The LiNX2 offers a new ergonomic design, SureFit, which is molded from the wearer’s ears for maximum comfort. The LiNX2 treats hearing loss in degrees from mild to profound, and it is available in a number of styles: invisible-in-canal, in-the-ear, receiver-in-canal, and behind-the-ear. The ENZO2 is a behind-the-ear hearing aid, available in three power levels: Power, High Power, and Super Power, depending on the wearer’s needs.
Resound also offers hearing aids designed specifically for children: the ReSound Up Smart hearing aid. This Smart Hearing Aid adapts to the way children connect with the world and take in new information, which is crucial to their speech and language development. The ReSound Up Smart hearing aid is worn behind-the-ear and is designed to be durable and tamperproof.
