LiNX Quattro and LiNX 3D – Made for iPhone Hearing Aids
As the “world’s smartest hearing aid,” the LiNX Quattro and LiNX 3D Made for iPhone are the latest iterations of ReSound’s most popular model. LiNX Quattro and 3D update the processing platform of its predecessor and provides wearers with new and improved features. LiNX Quattro and 3D hearing aids provide wearers exceptional sound quality, speech understanding, and spatial awareness.
As a Made for iPhone hearing aid, both the LiNX Quattro and 3D allows people to connect to their devices to stream phone calls, FaceTime, music, movies, and other media directly to their ears. Using the iPhone’s GPS, wearer preferences are geo-tagged and archived. When you return to a saved location, your LiNX Quattro or 3D aids will automatically adjust, providing a truly natural and seamless listening experience.
Connection to the iPhone also provides wearers with extra amplification, if necessary. By activating the iPhone’s microphone, sounds are picked up, amplified, and streamed directly to the LiNX Quattro and 3D hearing aids. This feature, Live Listen, is available on the ReSound Smart app, which connects LiNX Quattro and 3D to iPhones. Additionally, the Quattro can direct stream from Samsung phones (operating systems 9 or 10). The Smart App provides ease of control, as well. Wearers may adjust preferences, volume controls, and change programs with discretion on their smartphone, rather than fiddling with buttons on the hearing aid.
These technological advancements are just one exciting part of the overall LiNX Quattro and 3D experience. ReSound has designed the LiNX Quattro and 3D to support the hearing process. Features such as Surround Sound, New Binaural Directionality III, and Spatial Sense work in conjunction to capture the sounds of your environment and provide clarity, amplification, and improved speech recognition. Surround Sound and Spatial Sense helps you locate the source of sound within 360-degrees of your listening environment, while Binaural Directionality balances audio from both ears. These features support the brain’s natural ability to process sound and recognize speech.
ReSound’s LiNX 3D treats mild to profound hearing loss and is available in the following styles:
invisible-in-canal, in-the-ear, receiver-in-canal, and behind-the-ear.
For people with higher degrees of hearing loss, ReSound offers the ENZO2, a super-powered aid. With heightened speech recognition and spatial awareness features, ENZO2 provides a comfortable listening experience. Features available with ENZO2 include New Binaural Directionality II, Spatial Sense, and Surround Sound, as well as feedback cancellation, comfort in noise and in wind, and speech focus.
The ENZO2 amplifies sounds in a natural way by eliminating background noise while boosting speech recognition and clarity. ENZO2, like LiNX 3D, is compatible with the ReSound Smart App, which is convenient and discreet for adjusting features and volume. By activating Live Listen on the Smart App and placing the smartphone by the sound source, ENZO2 wearers will benefit from extra amplification if needed
The ENZO2 is a behind-the-ear hearing aid, available in three power levels: Power, High Power, and Super Power, depending on the wearer’s needs.
