The convention capital of the world.
Over 4 days, The Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Centre attracted some of the world’s top audiologists in a bid to seek out the latest tech that will change the lives of their patients – and wow, did we stumble into something…
Circling the various stalls of gizmos and gadgets was intriguing, but one masterpiece really caught my eye.
The ReSound Showcase was none like any other. I was immediately welcomed to try out their latest smartphone app that allowed me to feel their advanced background cancellation do its job. I then hovered across towards their destination based sound where I could quickly understand where voices were coming from without moving all around.
These functionalities in themselves were quite something, but after I realised that they were all inside the one device – it was like a dream came true for anyone who has an interest in hearing better.
I asked a member of the ReSound team to show me what they looked like and was quite taken aback. These hearing aids weren’t just presentable, but dare I say it. Fashionable.
Quote from the CEO of Resound, Anders Hedegaard:
ReSound LiNX2 is the latest step in our efforts to make hearing as natural and effortless as possible. We revolutionized hearing aid technology in 2014 with the introduction of ReSound LiNX, a game changing, Smart Hearing device that offered incredible sound quality, connectivity and control. ReSound LiNX2 builds on that unmatched capability, bringing even more empowerment to users that expect the best quality without compromise in an increasingly connected world.
This is all great news, but what does it really mean?
You might now be thinking: “So what? Another new product on the market, I have lost count of how many times that has happened.”
Okay, so I’ll break it down for you in a few short sentences – what this new Linx Squared can do.
1. As you may know, hearing aids come in many shapes and sizes – in the ear, behind the ear, receiver in the canal. These new devices have an incredible power availability in many shapes and sizes. Whatever style you prefer, you can still get the incredible sound that you are looking for.
2. Surround sound. The idea of hearing from all directions instead of being limited to where you are facing. This new hearing aid has the ability to help you feel more in control of your environment and respond to the situation around you unlike any other.
3. Smart App rehaul. ReSound launched their hearing aid iPhone application a year ago to allow a seamless sync between phone and hearing device. If you wanted to, you could use wirelessly call someone and have your hearing devices process the sound aspect of your call or listen to music through the devices too. Now, their team have completely revamped the application to allow you more flexibility and control over what sound environments you like.
4. The hearing aid comes with a hugely powerful tinnitus relief. In essence, this allows you to play a range of sounds through the devices that match your tinnitus needs (pitch and modulation) to reduce your tinnitus problem and allow you to concentrate on the activities that matter most to you.
We are now demonstrating these devices in-store
