Power hearing aid

Launch of new Super Power Hearing Aid

ReSound has launched the world’s only smart super power hearing solution expanding the possibilities to communicate and engage for people with severe and profound hearing loss.

ENZO, has been developed to take full advantage of ReSound’s unique and advanced technologies, so people with profound hearing loss can live richer, more active and fulfilling lives.

It’s the most powerful super power hearing aid on the market today offering 10% more headroom gain than the main competitors in the category.  ENZO is not just the most powerful super power hearing aid on the market. It is also the smallest – and features iSolate nanotech™, an ultrathin polymer shield that protects against moisture, wax and dust.

People with severe and profound hearing loss often have difficulty using phones, being able to understand speech and enjoying sounds from other electronic devices like TVs and computers. Thanks to ReSound ENZO, wearers with super power needs can now stream stereo sound directly from their TV set or an iPhone, iPad and iPod touch with no intermediate device (Made for iPhone), so the hearing aids function as if they were wireless stereo headphones.

Users can also personalize and control their settings using the free ReSound Smart™ app, which offers new and easy ways for ReSound ENZO wearers to personalize and control their hearing experience.   To find out more or have a free trial please contact us.

Hearing Loss May Increase Your Chances Of Developing Dementia

Gradual hearing loss is a common symptom of ageing, but in some people it may also be an early sign of Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia, a recent study suggests*

The risk of dementia appears to rise as hearing declines. Older people with mild hearing impairment – those who have difficulty following a conversation in a crowded restaurant say – were nearly twice as likely as those with normal hearing to develop dementia, the study found. Severe hearing loss nearly quintupled the risk of dementia. This study may prompt men and women to pay more attention to hearing loss. Even if treating hearing loss only delayed dementia, that alone could have enormous consequences, researchers say.

Sound Advice Hearing Centres

Since our inception in 2004 Sound Advice Hearing is celebrating its 10th year as a leading local family run hearing business. From the initial opening of our Horncastle practice we have gone on to open further hearing centres in King’s Lynn and Peterborough, and have acquired Norwich Hearing Centre and Haydn Perrett Hearing Aids.  This now enables us to provide a very comprehensive hearing care, wax removal and tinnitus advice service throughout the whole of Lincolnshire, Norfolk & Cambridgeshire.

The Company’s principal Director – Paul Scigala, started his training some 20 years ago.  He spent his early years after qualifying as a senior manager with Scrivens Hearing Care before moving on to take up a senior management role with Hidden Hearing. From here Paul decided he would like to set up his own hearing care business and so the journey egan. Paul is a BSHAA registered Clinical Ear Care Practitioner, specialising in wax removal and has recently sat as a Council Member for the industry’s main professional body, where he is still a Senior trainer and examiner in the area of Clinical Ear Care.
