The LiNX2™ Hearing Aids in Dublin

A little over a year ago, ReSound released the first Made for iPhone hearing aid ever, the LiNX™. While Made for iPhone hearing aids are relatively new within the hearing aid world, the overwhelming majority of user reviews are really 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 this release, 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.

New styles

Linx2 hearing aid family

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.

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 localize 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.

Tinnitus relief In Dublin

The LiNX2 is ReSound’s 5th generation tinnitus solution. All technology levels and styles of the LiNX2 have built-in sound generators and six different Nature Sounds to find the settings that bring them the most relief.

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 a highest power output available. At time of writing the Enzo2 is the most powerful super power hearing aid on the market.

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.

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.
