With more than 500 million people worldwide inflicted with some degree of hearing loss, Denmark-based GN ReSound has unveiled its super powerful smart hearing aid that personalizes the sound experience. The ReSound ENZO2 is a fourth-generation of GN ReSound’s groundbreaking 2.4 GHz technology and now that it’s backed by an award-winning smart app, those with compromised hearing have access to a revolutionary device.
Bringing forward all the benefits of the LiNX2, ReSound designed a hearing aid device that “offers exceptional hearing experience with greater audibility, better speech understanding, and improved spatial awareness.” Whether your hearing loss is conductive, sensorineural, or a combination of both, the ENZ02 can be worn behind-the-ear or “invisible-in-the-air.” Engineered to be discreet and at the same time robust, this action-packed hearing aid allows you to take calls, listen to music, and of course, strategically amplify the world around you.
Considered to be the first “made-for-iPhone-hearing aid,” the ENZO2 connects to your iPhone, iPad, and iTouch with the option to sync Android-compatible devices using the company’s PhoneClip+ Bluetooth-enabled accessory. Available in two power modes (High Power and Super Power), ReSound made a hearing aid that caters to the wearer’s sound preferences. The patented Spatial Sense feature allows the user to focus on the intended sound by eliminating ambient noise. It also helps your ability to tell where sounds are coming from.
The real beauty of ReSound’s device lives inside its intuitive smart app. If you notice that your speech recognition is compromised while dining at a busy restaurant, simply connect with your smartphone app and adjust the volume, treble, and bass at your leisure – and without drawing attention to your hearing aid. By activating the smart app’s geo-tag theme and storing your preferences, ReSound’s hearing aid automatically adjusts to your preferred sound quality. If you go from the busy city streets into a peaceful home setting, you may want to have your hearing aid adjust accordingly. The ENZ02 makes this adjustment automatically.
With a full suite of new accessories (ReSound Micro Mic™ and ReSound Multi Mic™ microphones) that connect to all ReSound Smart Hearing aids, the users sound experience can be optimized for any environment. If you’re like my grandmother and want to tune out the world, you have that option as well. ReSound created a device that empowers the wearer to make their own decisions around sound quality.
“We are very excited to deliver the most advanced sound quality and introduce spatial sense to the Super Power users all over the world,” said GN ReSound CEO Anders Hedegaard. “Now, people with severe to profound hearing loss will benefit from our groundbreaking solutions that adapt to peoples’ lives instead of the other way around.”
For hearing impaired children, GN ReSound also launches the new ReSound Up Smart™ 5, the only competitive solution combining Made for iPhone and ReSound’s innovative hearing technologies that effectively support speech and language development, educational skills, and social interaction.
