Newly released in November 2015 the Enzo2 9 is the premium Superpower BTE from Resound. This replaces the previous generation, the Enzo 9
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, see below) 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 top level of technology for ReSound’s superpower hearing aid range. It has 17 frequency channels backed up by the efficient DFS Ultra II system which provides the highest stable gain level (highest amplification) in the industry, without the hearing aid whistling. Using features such as "Autoscope Adaptive Directionality" the hearing aids keep you hearing the important speech sounds by supressing the unwanted background noises and wind noise. They do this by “Synchronised Softswitching” which means that the aid adjusts itself automatically to the environment you are in.
Despite its high power, the Enzo2 9 manages to be the smallest aid available when comparing to other superpower aids. In addition its iSolate nanotech™ coating protects every component in the aid from dust and wax and moisture.
The Enzo2 9 is compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and the new Apple Watch, using their Smart app which you can download. This means you can stream stereo sound directly to your hearing aids as if you were wearing wireless headphones. You can access voice calls, FaceTime, music, movies, spoken directions, information and any other audio from your iPhone/iPad.
Unlike many other hearing aids, this lets you connect directly from your device to the hearing aid without using intermediary devices, although they are also compatible with the whole range of ReSound Unite wireless accessories. You can discreetly adjust the volume, bass or treble using the app whilst Geotag helps the Enzo to remember what settings you preferred for any particular location so that you can set the aid to work in the same way next time you visit that area. You can even use the app to help find your Enzo2 9 hearing aids if you misplace them.
The Enzo2 9 is the premium model and the main benefits over the Enzo2 7 are better noise reduction. Better wind noise reduction. Autoscope adaptive directionality and a better binaural environment optimiser.
The Enzo2 9 can be programmed with up to four memory programs and is available in a range of 10 different colours.
