ReSound is a Danish manufacturer of hearing aids, founded in 1943. Committed to helping people rediscover hearing so they can live rich, active, and fulfilling lives, ReSound has produced some exciting hearing technology through the decades. ReSound has produced several important industry firsts: an open-standard digital chip, Wide Dynamic Range Compression (WDRC) sound processing, and Digital Feedback Suppression (DFS). ReSound provides wearers of their hearing aids with natural, clear sound and a comfortable listening experience.
LiNX2 – Made for iPhone
As the “world’s smartest hearing aid,” the LiNX2 is the second generation of ReSound’s LiNX Made for iPhone hearing aids. LiNX2 offers wearers exceptional sound quality, speech understanding, and spatial awareness.
As a Made for iPhone hearing aid, LiNX2 has the capability to connect wirelessly to smartphones. With this connectivity, wearers of the LiNX2 are able to stream phone conversations, FaceTime, music, and other media directly from the iPhone to the LiNX2 hearing aids. Using the iPhone’s GPS, wearer preferences are geo-tagged and stored. When wearers return to archived locations, LINX2 automatically adjusts to wearer preferences.
Connecting to the ReSound Smart App, wearers may activate the Live Listen feature which turns the iPhone microphone into an assistive listening device. LiNX2 wearers simply place the iPhone near the sound source they wish to amplify and the iPhone streams the sounds directly to the LiNX2. Additionally, the Smart App allows wearers to control program features and check battery life on the LiNX2, giving an extra layer of discretion.
LiNX2 also boasts several features to help improve the listening experience. Surround Sound assists wearers in locating the source of sound and provides 360-degree spectrum of sound. New Binaural Directionality II simulates a natural binaural listening experience and the clearer signal of sound supports the brain by giving it a more detailed picture of the sonic landscape. Spatial Sense supports the brain’s natural ability to process and locate sounds. LiNX2 also improves speech recognition features, ensuring that every conversation is heard.
Designed for wearers with severe to profound degrees of hearing loss, ReSound offers the ENZO2. The ENZO2 is a powerful hearing aid that enhances speech recognition and spatial awareness for wearers with a higher level of hearing loss. With New Binaural Directionality II, Spatial Sense, and Surround Sound, wearers receive an enhanced quality of sound and a comfortable listening experience. Additional features available with the ENZO2 include: speech focus to help with speech recognition, comfort in noise, comfort in wind, and feedback cancellation.
With an advanced version of Surround Sound, ENZO2 amplifies sounds wearers want to hear while eliminating background noise and distracting feedback. Along with New Binaural Directionality II and Spatial Sense, ENZO2 gives wearers Speech focus boosts with speech recognition, while comfort in noise eliminates background noise in challenging situations. For people with active lifestyles, the comfort in wind feature eliminates the noise of wind for better sound quality.
With the ReSound Smart App, ENZO2 wearers are able to connect wirelessly to their smartphones. Through this app, wearers can make adjustments to program features and volume on their phones. Unlike other similarly powered hearing aids for higher degrees of hearing loss, ENZO2 is significantly smaller in size.
