In November 2015 ReSound brought out the latest iteration of their super power BTE, the Enzo. This is the mid-range model the Enzo2 7
The Enzo2 7 is the mid-level aid from ReSound’s superpower hearing aid range. Like its big brother the Enzo2 9, it has 17 frequency channels. These channels can be put to full use without the hearing aid whistling due to the same efficient "DFS Ultra II" anti-feedback system which provides the greatest amount of stable gain (that means highest level of amplification) in the hearing aid industry.
As it is the mid-level aid you miss out on some of the premium features of the Enzo2 9 such as Autoscope Adaptive Directionality, Binaural Directionality and Binaural Environmental Optimizer II. Also the Noisetracker II and Windguard features aren’t quite as strong. What this means is that whilst the aids still do a good job of supressing unwanted background noise and wind noise, they don’t do it quite as efficiently as the premium aid.
Even though it is a high power hearing aid, the Enzo2 7 still manages to be smaller and more discreet than any of the other superpower aids available. Also its "iSolate nanotech™" coating stops moisture and dust from getting into the aid and protects the components inside.
The Enzo2 7 is designed to work with the "Smart App" on most Apple devices such as iPad, iPhone and even the Apple Watch. The app streams stereo sound to your hearing aids directly, all without using any extra accessories, just as if you had wireless headphones on. This can be used to hear directions from a map, you can hear the phone in stereo without holding it to your ear, you can listed to music or films or other audio information, all direct from your iPhone or iPad.
Most other hearing aids need extra devices to connect to your devices but these Resound aids do it directly. Other accessories are still available though in the "Resound Unite" range including devices like the TV streamer.
The main benefits of the Enzo2 7 over the Enzo2 5 are 17 channels rather than 9, significantly better noise reduction and wind noise reduction.
The Enzo2 7 can be given up to four customised memory programs.
