LiNX2 – Made for iPhone
The LiNX2 is a Made for iPhone hearing aid, the second generation of ReSound’s LiNX series. Building upon its predecessor’s success, LiNX2 boasts an updated processing platform and improved new features. These features include exceptional sound quality, speech understanding, and spatial awareness.
As a Made for iPhone hearing aid, LiNX2 has the capability to connect wirelessly to smartphones. This allows wearers of the LiNX2 to stream phone conversations, FaceTime, music, and other media directly from the iPhone to the LiNX2 hearing aids. Another exciting feature utilizes the iPhone’s GPS. As wearers adjust their preferences in different locations, these choices are geo-tagged and archived. When wearers return to archived locations, LINX2 automatically adjusts to wearer preferences.
LiNX2 assists wearers in locating the source of sound with Surround Sound, which provides 360-degree spectrum of sound. New Binaural Directionality II is a feature that simulates a natural binaural listening experience, while Spatial Sense supports the brain’s natural ability to process and locate sounds. SureFit, a new ergonomic design, may be customized to wearers’ ears for exceptional comfort. For people who suffer from tinnitus, the LiNX2 includes a sound therapy feature with Nature Sounds to provide relief. The LiNX2 treats hearing loss in degrees from mild to profound, and it is available in a number of styles: invisible-in-canal, in-the-ear, receiver-in-canal, and behind-the-ear.
The ENZO2 is ReSound’s super power hearing aid, designed to meet the hearing needs of people who experience severe to profound hearing loss.

ENZO2 wearers are able to connect wirelessly to their smartphones with the ReSound Smart App. For ENZO2 wearers who need an extra boost, the Live Listen function on the Smart App allows people to turn their smartphones into a portable assistive listening device. The iPhone microphone picks up and amplifies sounds that ENZO2 wearers wish to hear, and delivers it directly to the hearing aids.
