Resound Hearing Aids
Based in Denmark, ReSound was founded in 1943 with the mission to help people rediscover hearing in order to live rich, active, and fulfilling lives. As one of the major global producers of hearing aid technology, ReSound is responsible for a number of industry firsts: an open-standard digital chip, Wide Dynamic Range Compression (WDRC) sound processing, and Digital Feedback Suppression (DFS). In their process to produce user-friendly instruments, ReSound conducts research and applies feedback from consumers in real life situations to develop technology for the most natural and comfortable sound.
Made for iPhone: ReSound LiNX 3D
As a Made for iPhone hearing aid, LiNX 3D connects to your smartphone (and other devices), opening up awesome access to sound and technology. Through the Assist app for your iPhone (or Android), you may personalize and save your listening preferences by controlling settings, features, and volume. With your phone’s GPS function, the Assist app archives your preferences and automatically adjusts to your listening preferences when you return to saved locations. Additionally, if you ever misplace your LiNX 3D hearing aids, Assist can locate them with a tracking function.
In line with ReSound’s innovation, LiNX 3D offers wearers a host of exciting features that simulate natural binaural hearing and assist the brain in the listening process. Surround Sound, Spatial Sense, and Binaural Directionality II provide wearers with access to clear sound and clarity with speech, especially in challenging noise environments. With strategically placed directional microphones and an ultra-fast processing platform, LiNX 3D ensures that you don’t miss a sound.
With these features, LiNX 3D was found in an independent study to capture 80% more sounds in your environment, as well as assist you in recognizing speech 50% better in noisy environments, with 40% more accurate speech in noise. Additionally, LiNX 3D offers tinnitus therapy features to alleviate the “ringing of the ears.” LiNX3D treats mild to profound degrees of hearing loss and is available in the following styles: invisible-in-canal, receiver-in-canal, and behind-the-ear.
Smart Fit Software: The Latest in Telehealth
At the Audiology Now 2017 conference, ReSound’s VP of Medical Affairs Dave Fabry and Senior Audiologist Steve Hallenbeck demonstrated ReSound’s ground-breaking new technology: Smart Fit Software. From the conference in Indiana, Fabry and Hallenbeck made fine-tune adjustments to LiNX 3D hearing aids for a patient in Copenhagen!
It may sound like something out of science fiction, but this is the latest in telehealth and tele-audiology. When you are fitted for your LiNX 3D hearing aids, we make sure that the devices are tailored to meet your hearing needs. After leaving our office and experiencing sounds in real world situations, you may find that you need adjustments. Smart Fit Software is designed to provide on-going adjustments using a cloud-based network. We receive your requests and make adjustments that are uploaded directly to your LiNX 3D hearing aids wherever you are. Smart Fit ensures that you experience great sound quality and immediate hearing care.
For those who experience higher degrees of hearing loss, ReSound offers the super-powered ENZO 2. ENZO 2 features such as New Binaural Directionality II, Spatial Sense, and Surround Sound to enhance speech recognition and directionality with increased spatial awareness.
By reducing background noise and boosting speech recognition and clarity, ENZO 2 provides a natural listening experience. Through the ReSound Smart App, ENZO2 wearers connect wirelessly to their smartphones, using an app to make adjustments to program features and volume. A wireless connection also enables wearers to stream phone calls and media directly to their ears. Though powerful in capabilities, ENZO2 is significantly smaller in size than other super-power hearing aids in its class. ENZO 2 is a behind-the-ear hearing aid, available in three power levels: Power, High Power, and Super Power.
