ReSound target their Verso 7 to those hearing aid wearers with listening needs that are mostly within the ‘moderate’ difficulty category. Although there are fewer features compared to the flagship Verso 9, many of the legacy features from the previous top-of-the-range Alera 9 have still been improved on in Verso 7.
While there may not be the full Binaural Fusion experience, there are still a number of directional features to offer improved listening in noise for those who wear models with two microphones. The Natural Directionality II system is provided for those who have a Verso 7 device on each ear, as well as Synchronized SoftSwitching which co-ordinates the switching between directional and omnidirectional modes between the two hearing aids.
The ultimate aim of the directional system in the Verso 7 is to provide full awareness for the wearer, so that they are offered the ability to naturally focus on voices and other sounds they want to hear.
The communication between the devices is controlled by the 2.4 GHz wireless transmission. It also allows for synchronized Push Button and Synchronized Volume Control, to ensure that any manual adjustments are registered in both hearing aids.
The PhoneNow feature has also been enhanced in the Verso range. Building on the legacy from Alera; PhoneNow meant activating the telephone program when brought up to a magnet placed on a phone receiver. However, there was still the problem of speaking on the phone in noisy environments, as hearing instrument users may experience amplified ambient noise in the non-phone ear. The room noise picked up by the non-phone ear can make listening on the phone a more difficult task. Comfort Phone in ReSound Verso uses the bilateral wireless synchronization between hearing instruments to identify the "phone ear" and the "non-phone ear." The amplification for the non-phone ear is then attenuated by 6 dB. This reduces the level of disturbance caused by the amplification of sounds and background noise in the listening environment, and by extension, reduces the listening effort required. However, the non-phone ear still receives some sound input, which allows the user to have a more natural yet easier experience while using the phone. When the user ends the phone call, both hearing instruments return to their previous microphone program and volume setting.
Full connection to all ReSound Unite wireless accessories is available in those Verso 7 wireless models.
