Hearing like second nature

Hearing like second nature
Empower users
to tune in to life
ReSound Verso™
The only true support for
binaural processing
The power to navigate in any environment. The freedom to enjoy a
rich soundscape. The ability to naturally react, respond and engage
in what they want. That’s the ReSound Verso experience.
ReSound Verso is a breakthrough hearing solution that makes hearing feel instinctive
again – like second nature.
Introducing breakthrough Binaural Fusion™ technology, ReSound Verso takes the
Surround Sound by ReSound experience to a new level. Using 2.4 GHz wireless
device-to-device communication, Binaural Fusion seamlessly adapts to any changes
in the sound environment and delivers perfectly balanced sound input – so users are
empowered to instinctively focus on what they want to hear, rather than having the
hearing instruments make that decision for them. That’s a new reality and an industry
first.
Surround Sound by ReSound™ is our philosophy of treating
sound like the human ear does. It models, cleans, balances
and stabilizes all sound input, immersing users in a clear,
rich, vibrant sound experience.
ReSound Verso’s highly evolved technology unfolds in a full range of beautifully designed
hearing instruments. Cleverly adaptive and amazingly versatile. For a hearing experience
that’s like second nature.

The power to
navigate 360°
With Binaural Fusion™ technology, ReSound Verso™ delivers a new reality
in binaural processing. Like never before, users get a true-to-life hearing
experience that gives them more opportunities, more freedom and more
comfort – wherever they are.
Using our unique 2.4 GHz wireless device-to-device technology, Binaural Fusion allows the
hearing instruments to work seamlessly as one system to dynamically adapt to any changes
in the sound environment. It combines Binaural Directionality™ and Binaural Environmental
Optimizer™ II technologies to provide users with a holistic, natural sound picture that supports
the auditory system’s own binaural capabilities to determine what sounds to attend to.
With perfectly balanced sound input and optimal audibility, users perceive sounds more
naturally – so they instinctively react and respond to sounds of interest. That’s true binaural
processing.
Binaural Fusion simply gives users the best of everything: unmatched sound quality, the ability
to react and respond to what they want to hear, plus full awareness of their surroundings.
The only thing users notice is a truly harmonious listening experience.

Sound in
perfect balance
Binaural Directionality™
– the freedom to tune in to what they want
Automatic focus on the loudest speech seems like a useful feature. But what if that speech
is not the sound of interest? With Binaural Directionality, it is the user – not the hearing
instruments – who decides what to focus on. The technology will find the most intense
speech signal and ensure that it is clear and audible. But unlike other binaural processing
technologies, it doesn’t automatically assume that this is the sound of interest. Instead,
Binaural Directionality enables the hearing instruments to dynamically adjust microphone
settings and choose the optimal directional pattern to suit any environment. This provides
users with the information they need to instinctively react and tune in to the sound they
are interested in. Using device-to-device communication to deliver the best speech
understanding in noise plus a more natural sense of surroundings.
By supporting true binaural processing, the Binaural Fusion™
technology in ReSound Verso™ allows users to react, respond and
engage naturally with the world around them.
With Binaural Fusion, the hearing instruments work as one system, using our unique
2.4 GHz wireless device-to-device communication. They constantly compare notes to
dynamically analyze the sound environment and exchange and balance every piece of
input. Then the instruments automatically and seamlessly apply the optimal microphone
mode, noise reduction and gain settings for every type of listening environment.
This provides optimal support for true binaural processing, which is naturally done
in the human brain. Users get clear speech understanding and full awareness in all
environments.
Binaural Environmental Optimizer™ II
– In sync with surroundings
The new, highly sophisticated Binaural Environmental Optimizer II is more accurate and
personalized than ever before. It uses device-to-device communication to dynamically
exchange, analyze and balance every piece of sound input. Every listening situation is
accurately classified with respect to seven different environmental categories – the most
detailed classification offered by any manufacturer. The instruments then automatically
adjust gain for optimal audibility. And our industry-leading Noise Tracker™ II sets the most
appropriate level of noise reduction for optimal listening comfort in every environment.
Giving users the best audibility and comfort for what they want to listen to.
In addition to Binaural Fusion, ReSound Verso features Synchronized SoftSwitching™ as
well as Synchronized Push Button and Synchronized Volume Control for precise alignment
of both instruments. This ensures a seamless hearing experience.

Focus
and
finesse
Although we’ve had the industry’s best feedback suppression system for
years, we’re always looking to improve it. In ReSound Verso™, we break
new ground again.
DFS Ultra™ II sets a new standard with even better sensitivity to distinguish feedback from
high-frequency sounds. Thanks to our unique two-filter feedback cancellation system,
the hearing instruments perform the most refined feedback management on the market.
Unlike other feedback systems which use the calibration for limiting gain only, DFS Ultra II
uses the calibration procedure to set a static filter. This optimizes the system’s performance
in cancelling feedback. Better precision and scaling in DFS Ultra II allow the adaptive filter to
cancel feedback more accurately than was previously possible.
Users can now enjoy extra comfort, better audibility and all the subtle nuances of rich sound.
Even in the most challenging situations such as listening to music and using the phone.
Music as it was meant to be enjoyed
The new Music Mode™ setting in ReSound Verso gives users a clearer, richer
distortion-free music experience, thanks to more thorough sound input analysis.
High and low notes are reproduced with remarkable clarity, and music sounds
like it should. For users who have experienced issues with ringing or chiming
artifacts when listening to music with other hearing instruments, Music Mode
can make all the difference in the world.
A more natural phone experience
In combination with DFS Ultra II, the unique Comfort Phone™ feature gives
people easier and more comfortable phone use. The PhoneNow™ program
detects when the user holds a phone to their ear, and the new Comfort Phone
feature uses wireless communication to adjust settings in both instruments. On
the phone ear, the user will experience vocal quality and clarity like never before.
On the opposite ear, the volume automatically decreases, without blocking out
other sounds. So users can focus fully on their phone conversations and still be
aware of what’s going on around them.

Every ReSound Verso model is protected by iSolate™ nanotech – a unique water
repellant coating that provides unmatched moisture protection and great durability.
iSolate nanotech coats all components of the hearing instrument – both inside and
outside – with a thin protective layer that shields them from moisture and corrosion,
without affecting their performance. Moisture, oil and debris coming into contact with
any part of the hearing instrument simply roll right off.
For users, this means increased durability and fewer repairs. For you, it means more
satisfied customers.
