    If you are hard of hearing and have an iPhone I suggest you read this.

    I purchased a pair of Resound Enzo hearing aids 2 years ago which are one of the most powerful aids available. I am as they say legally deaf. Up to then I had an enormous problem fully communicating with family and customers alike as my old aids just could not cope.


    My new aids have given me a new lease of life. These state of the art aids are fully automatic however they also are Apple certified. My iPhone X resound app can override the controls and let me change settings on the fly from controlling location , volume , base treble. And not only that find my hearings aids if I mislay them in the house. What makes it even more amazing is using GPS on the phone I can set up a special setting for locations. I have one for work and one for home another for church so as soon as I arrive at the destinations the aids beep and switch to the new location.



    These state of the art aids stream via blue tooth Apple music, phone calls movie audio sounds etc direct to the phone plus using Siri is a dream come true. But that is not all my Apple watch series 1 has a corresponding app so with a touch of a button I can copy the iPhone functions. When phone calls come in I can answer the calls on the Apple watch much easier than I would have expected


    When using CarPlay the audio goes direct to the car when connected then reverts back to the hearing aid when car is off



    Only requirement is the iPhone needs to be with in Bluetooth range of the watch. At my previous work I have a resound mini mike connected to an adapter which sends all phone conversations to audio in on the mini mike. This on turn streams the call direct to the aids. This is the first time in more than 10 years I can actually use a normal phone loud and clear. There aids support the coil function however quality is no where near as good

    At home listening to music and TV is perfect


    Now that I am in control I hear a lot more now


    Of course this solution comes at a price apart from needing and iPhone 5 or later model one needs an Apple watch to give more flexibility and for $12500 Australian or $8500 U.S you can buy the aids.


    In many countries if you are retired the government will subsidise the aids. In Australia they offset the cost by $4500.


    The plus side is totally enjoyment and as some one said life is too short not to enjoy it.


    Happy to answer any questions users may have.
