RESOUND HEARING AIDS
ReSound was founded in Denmark in 1943, with the mission to help people rediscover hearing, so they can live rich, active, and fulfilling lives. ReSound bases their designs on research from real-life feedback from clients and hearing health practitioners, which has led to a number of industry firsts. 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. With offices in 25 countries, ReSound distributes their innovative products worldwide.
LiNX Made for iPhone Hearing Aids
As one of the first Made for iPhone hearing aids available on the market, the LiNX has come a long way. Currently in its third generation, the LiNX 3D is equipped with an updated processing platform, as well as new and improved features, making it the most advanced model to date from ReSound. LiNX 3D provides wearers with the same confidence and reliability as its previous models: exceptional sound quality, enhanced speech recognition, and improved spatial awareness.
As a Made for iPhone hearing aid, LiNX 3D connects wirelessly to your smartphone to open up a world of accessibility. This connection allows you to stream phone calls, FaceTime, music, movies, and other media directly to your ears from your iPhone (or iPad, Apple Watch, or iPod touch). LiNX 3D provides a natural listening experience with the GPS geo-tagging feature: when you make adjustments to features or volume, the settings are archived with a pinned location to be automatically adjusted the next time you’re in the same place.
In addition to this incredible technology, LiNX 3D provides excellent listening features with access to rich sound. LiNX 3D identifies speech 50% better in noisy environments, helps wearers understand up to 40% more accurate speech in noise, and helps wearers hear up to 80% more of the sounds in their surroundings. The combination and collaborative processing of LiNX 3D’s features such as Binaural Directionality III and Surround Sound provide wearers to full access to the sounds in their environment.
And finally, LiNX 3D offers up something else that no other smart hearing aid does: instant fine-tuning to your listening experience. Through the Assist and Smart Fit feature, wearers may send requests for adjustments to their hearing instrument specialists and receive immediate updates through the cloud without having to go in for an appointment. At the 2017 Audiology Now Conference in Indianapolis, ReSound’s demo wowed the crowd by making adjustments to LiNX 3D aids in Copenhagen! This feature is especially useful as we find ourselves in many different environments outside of the hearing specialist’s office and require fine-tuning to program features.
Wearers are also empowered to make adjustments through the Assist app on their iPhones. Personalized changes to program features, settings, and volume are saved on the app and make automatic adjustments accordingly. A tracking function is also useful for people who may misplace their hearing aids.
LiNX 3D hearing aids are available in a number of styles and colors to meet unique hearing needs. LiNX 3D aids may be customized to match your hair color and skin tone. The receiver-in-ear model, at 0.82 inches, is one of the best-sellers. Its small size provides a level of discretion for wearers with active lifestyles. LiNX 3D is also available in custom styles (invisible-in-canal, completely-in-canal, mic-in-helix, in-the-canal, and in-the-ear).
For people who experience higher degrees of hearing loss (severe to profound), ReSound offers the ENZO 2. ENZO 2 provides wearers with increased enhancements on features such as Binaural Directionality, Spatial Sense, and Surround Sound. Speech Focus ensures that wearers will hear speakers’ voices with clarity. While some super-powered hearing aids have the tendency to distort sounds, features such as Feedback Cancellation, Comfort in Noise, and Comfort in Wind work in conjunction to provide a comfortable listening experience.
ENZO 2 is a behind-the-ear hearing aid, available in three power levels: Power, High Power, and Super Power.
