ReSound ENZO Q – New Super Power Hearing Aid
Available in High Power and Super Power models, the ENZO Q is said to offer a 100% speed increase, 30% more computing power, 20% less power consumption and 100% more memory compared to its predecessor ReSound ENZO 3D™.
ENZO Q wearers can enjoy a 60% average improvement in hearing speech in front of them in noisy environments3, which is a major challenge for people with hearing loss. The result is improved ability to hear high frequency sounds, better speech intelligibility and all-round listening, and “just-right” volume and noise reduction.
This new hearing solution was trusted by Mo O’Brien, Atlantic rower, when she decided to wear ReSound ENZO Q for the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. After 49 grueling days at sea, she crossed the finish line to become the first person with profound hearing loss to row across the Atlantic Ocean, doing so with her all-female team, and crediting ReSound ENZO Q for helping her smash ‘the world’s toughest row’.
ReSound LiNX Quattro: 3 New BTE Hearing Aids and mini RIE models
GN Hearing also launches new additions to the popular ReSound LiNX Quattro, the “Premium-Plus hearing solution with the industry’s highest input dynamic range and an extended bandwidth of up to 9.5 kHz, which is recognized by hearing care professionals as a clear winner for sound quality”4.
According to the company’s press release, the popular range now offers three new BTE hearing aids and a mini RIE model, which can be used in individuals with mild-to-severe hearing loss.
ReSound Assist Live – Improving the Customer Experience
GN Hearing is “positioned in a league of its own for connectivity, as demonstrated by this launch with telecoil and Direct Audio Input (DAI) options, and class-leading direct streaming from compatible iOS and AndroidTM devices”5.
The new ReSound Assist Live1, an innovative new feature of the popular ReSound Assist customer care solution, delivers a heightened level of customer experience and business support for hearing care professionals.
This expansion of GN Hearing’s connectivity leadership brings even more benefits to people with hearing loss. People can connect to announcements in public places, such as museums and sports grounds via telecoil. Streaming of phone calls, music or any other audio is made easy directly from smartphones and tablets to ReSound hearing aids using Bluetooth® Low Energy5. Hearing aid users can utilize GN Hearing’s existing remote fine-tuning solution, and now, with new ReSound Assist Live, they can also enjoy convenient real-time and face-to-face online support sessions with their hearing care professional at a convenient time and place.
GN Hearing says the full product portfolio will be globally available by the end of February, including for Beltone AmazeTM and Beltone Boost UltraTM.
