Founded in Denmark in 1943, ReSound is committed to developing products that empower people to rediscover hearing. ReSound’s designs are research-based and follow trends of technological advancements. They were the first in the industry to introduce Wide Dynamic Range Compression sound processing technology and Digital Feedback Suppression to eliminate the sounds of feedback. ReSound’s greatest innovation to date is the family of Made for iPhone hearing aids, LiNX, now in its third generation.
LiNX 3D Made for iPhone Hearing Aids
As a Made for iPhone hearing aid, LiNX 3D opens up a world of accessibility for hearing aid wearers. Through the Assist app, wearers may control volume and program features on their iPhone, rather than fumbling with the small buttons on the hearing aid. With wireless connectivity, LiNX 3D wearers may stream phone calls, Face Time, music, and other media directly to their ears. Additionally, LiNX 3D’s geo-tagging feature stores wearer preferences in based on the location and automatically adjusts to archived settings when the wearer returns. With LiNX3d, wearers experience comfortable and seamless access to sound.
In terms of listening features, LiNX 3D was designed to simulate natural binaural hearing. Features such as Surround Sound, Spatial Sense and Binaural Directionality II assist the brain in the listening process, delivering clearer sound quality – especially in noisy environments. LiNX 3D’s high-powered microphones and superfast processing platform ensures that wearers experience sounds and recognize speech as naturally as possible.
According to an independent study, LiNX 3D has been proven to recognize speech 50% better in noisy environments, with 40% more accurate speech in noise. Additionally, LiNX 3D was found to capture 80% more of the sounds in the wearer’s environment. With exceptional sound and speech recognition features, LiNX3D ensures that wearers experience focus and clarity.
Tele-Health and Smart Fit with LiNX 3D
LiNX 3D offers up an exciting new feature, introduced by ReSound’s VP of Medical Affairs Dave Fabry and Senior Audiologist Steve Hallenbeck at the Audiology Now 2017 conference. In a demonstration, Fabry and Hallenbeck fine-tuned hearing aids for a patient in Copenhagen – from the location of conference in Indiana! This brand-new innovation in tele-health (or tele-audiology) ensures that wearers always experience the best sound quality.
After the initial fitting of your LiNX 3D hearing aids at our office, you may find that you require minor adjustments to your listening experience. Sounds in our quiet office during your fitting may appear quite differently than sounds in real world situations. With Smart Fit and the Assist app (for iPhone and Android), you may contact us using a cloud-based network to request fine-tuning and adjustment to your listening experience. From our office at Coweta Hearing, this new technology allows us to make adjustments to your listening experience wherever you are in the world.
After receiving your request from the cloud, our team will make the necessary adjustments to your listening features and send you updates through the network. Simply upload these updates to your LiNX 3D hearing aids for an immediate improvement to your listening experience. With Smart Fit, LiNX 3D wearers experience excellent sound quality, enhanced hearing aid fitting, and immediate hearing care.
To make your own simple adjustments, the user-friendly Assist app on your iPhone (or Android) allows you to change your listening preferences. Through the Assist app, you may also create and save your own favorite settings to personalize your listening experience. Though the GPS-feature detailed above, Assist will archive your preferences and automatically switch to saved preferences when you return to saved locations. Should you misplace your LiNX 3D hearing aids, never fear – there’s a tracking function the Assist app to locate them!
ENZO 2 is ReSound’s super-powered hearing aid, designed to treat higher degrees of hearing loss (severe to profound). For those who experience higher levels of hearing loss, speech recognition and directionality become increasingly challenging. ENZO 2 provides wearers with enhanced speech recognition and increased spatial awareness, thanks to heightened features such as New Binaural Directionality II, Spatial Sense, and Surround Sound.
The ENZO2 amplifies sounds in a natural way by eliminating background noise while boosting speech recognition and clarity. 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.
