A Solution For Severe To Profound Hearing Loss From Resound

Resound Enzo 3DResound Enzo 3D Hearing Aids

Resound have just launched their latest hearing device for people with severe to profound hearing loss. They are updated Enzo Made For iPhone (MFI) hearing aids with their new 3D platform which brings all of the benefits of that new system to this market. Those benefits include better spatial awareness and much better speech understanding in noise. With Made for iPhone® technology, you can stream phone calls, music and more from your iPhone, iPad® or iPod touch® directly to your hearing aids. If you have an Android or any Bluetooth-enabled phone, you can still stream calls, music and more with a discreet ReSound Phone Clip+ wireless accessory. 

Connect directly to Apple products with the Enzo 3D

Vibrant and crystal clear sound

Like the LiNX 3D range from ReSound, Enzo 3D hearing aids come with the superior sound quality of Surround Sound by ReSound. They work together, continuously exchanging data about your sound environment for optimized performance. The hearing aids are available in three levels of technology, the top of the range 9, the 7 and the 5. 

Two Models, Huge Power

The Enzo 3D BTE 88 and the BTE 98 side by side

There are two hearing aid models in the range both of which are Behind The Ear hearing aids and both of which are extremely powerful. The BTE 88 is the smaller of the two and takes a size 13 battery. The BTE 98 is larger but takes the 675 battery that many people with this hearing loss are used to.

The 98 is also more powerful than the 88, although not by much. However, Resound say that the 98 will get twelve days of use on the 675 battery, that's fantastic battery life for a smart hearing aid.

Resound Assist iconResound Assist is the really big news for both Providers and Users. Resound Assist will allow your provider to adjust your hearing aids remotely. That means if you want adjustments on the go, they can be provided without you having to attend the clinic. The system is really easy to use and is quite intuitive. This might not be for everyone, but this feature will be a god send for the people who love it. It will allow them complete freedom over their experience, over their customer experience. 

The App, Resound Smart 3D

Speech enhancer iconThe accompanying app also allows you personalise your hearing experience in a deeper way. It has been re-designed to be more intuitive and easier to use and it offers real control. When more clarity is needed, patients can increase speech focus, reduce noise and even reduce wind noise. Again, this might not be for everyone, but for those who want it, it will enrich their experience. This has to be seen as an excellent thing.

The LiNX2™ Hearing Aids

In 2014, ReSound released the first Made for iPhone hearing aid ever, the LiNX™. The response was overwhelmingly positive. Most users are really taken with the aids, their abilities and the experience they deliver. There really is no question that Made for iPhone hearing aids are here to stay. ReSound's release of their new line of Made for iPhone hearing aids, the ReSound LiNX2 (LiNX squared) only proves the point.

With the release of the upgraded Made For iPhone hearing aids, ReSound is once again leading the pack in the Made for iPhone hearing aid space. The LiNX2 is available in the same 3 technology levels as the previous generation, that being the top of the range 9, the 7 and the 5, but they are offering an expanded range of new styles with this release.

The ReSound LiNX2™in The Ear Hearing Aids

New styles

Up to now, Made for iPhone hearing aids have only been available in the behind-the-ear styles. ReSound have been hinting that custom styles were in the pipeline, and now they have arrived! Along with the popular BTE and RIE styles, the LiNX2 is available in the following additional custom styles: IIC, CIC, ITC, ITE and MIH.

However, only the ITC, ITE, and MIH styles are wireless capable and compatible with the ReSound Smart™ App and can support direct audio streaming. In addition, the RIE and BTE styles have also had an updated redesign, with new casing and user controls.

Enzo2 9 Hearing AIds

The Enzo’s Smart™ hearing technology takes all of the modern functionality you get from pairing the aid with your iPhone (or other compatible device) and combines it with the highest power output available. 

The Enzo2 9 is the flagship level device in ReSound’s superpower hearing aid range. Like the Linx2 9, it has 17 frequency channels for fine tuning within. It also uses their latest feedback prevention strategy DFS Ultra II to provide the highest amplification without the hearing aid whistling. The hearing aids are packed with advanced features to ensure the important speech sounds. They will attack background noises and wind noise. The device use a particularly clever system to ensure that they adjust themselves automatically to the environment you are in.

While the device is a high power hearing aid, Resound has ensured that the Enzo2 9 is one of the smallest super power aids available. Resound uses iSolate nanotech™ coating to protect the components in the aid from dust and wax and moisture.

Enzo2 7 Hearing Aids

The Enzo2 7 is the mid-level aid in the superpower hearing aid range. Resound have done something a little different with their mid range products, it has 17 frequency channels which is exactly the same as the top of the range devices. It also uses the same anti-feedback system to ensure that you get the amplification you need.

However, the device has a reduced feature set which means you will miss out on Autoscope Adaptive Directionality, Binaural Directionality and Binaural Environmental Optimizer II. They have also reduced the effect of the Noisetracker II and Windguard features aren’t quite as strong.

Enzo2 5 Hearing Aids

The Enzo2 5 is the entry level superpower hearing aid in ReSound’s latest range. Although it has a lower specification and 9 channels rather than 17, it still has the same high power output as the other models.

The aid has the same effective feedback prevention (DFS Ultra II) system, providing the highest highest amplification in the industry, without the hearing aid whistling. This hearing aid is ideally suited to those with severe to profound losses who do not spend much time in noisy or windy environments.

As with the other devices in the range it is a tough and durable aid and it has been specially coated to repel wax, moisture and dust.

SmartappReSound Smart App

Updates to the Smart app

One of the biggest problems for individuals with hearing loss is hearing speech in noise and wind. New personalization options within the app that are only for ReSound LiNX2 users includes sound enhancement features to better personalize these difficult listening situations.

Improved Surround Sound

Surround Sound by ReSound has been around for a while. Surround Sound is ReSound’s system for processing sound which helps users determine the direction sound is coming from, and automatically alters the output of the hearing aids to match the acoustic environment. In the LiNX2, ReSound have introduced a new improved Surround Sound system.

The feature has been greatly improved with the introduction of Binaural Directionality™ II, and an all new feature, Spatial Sense™. Binaural Directionality™ was utilized in previous ReSound products, like the Verso, and the original LiNX, but its second generation is now available in the LiNX2. Spatial Sense is a brand new feature focused entirely on helping you as a wearer localise sound and have a better spatial awareness. In order to take full advantage of the new Surround Sound system , you’ll have to invest in the LiNX2 9 in the BTE or RIE style.

Personalise your hearing experience with the Resound Smart app

If you own a ReSound smart hearing aid like the Linx, The Enzo2 or Linx2, the ReSound Smart™ app will enable you to discreetly fine-tune your hearing aids to your own taste.
