The latest hearing device from Resound is the LiNX Quattro line. ReSound LiNX Quattro hearing aids adjust automatically to the environment and wearers can personalize the details of their hearing aids even further with an exceptional streaming experience from almost any audio source. With increased power, lag time has been eliminated when streaming directly into the hearing aids or through a ReSound wireless accessory. With a lithium-ion battery that is small, discreet and completely sealed for protection, ReSound LiNX Quattro is an advanced rechargeable hearing aid with a long-lasting battery that gives enough power to last more than a full day. The battery status of LiNX can be monitored with the ReSound Smart 3D app and the LED lights on the charging case indicate the power status for the hearing aids and charging unit.
ReSound's latest hearing aid is manufactured with a new chip that boasts 100% more speed and a 30% increase in computing power (processing). In addition, the wireless radio has been replaced with a newer version that reduces power consumption by 20% over previous models (like the 3D).
Some improvements in the Quattro line are:
- Improved wireless system
- Extended Dynamic Range (the available range from soft to loud sounds)
- Clearer, more natural sound
- Rechargeable lithium-ion technology with Quick Charge functionality
Yes, Quattro hearing aids have a feature called Resound Assist, that allows wearers to submit programming requests to their hearing care provider through the Smart 3D App. Through this smartphone app, the hearing professional can also send updated programming settings straight to the wearer without an in-office visit.
Yes, Resound's Relief feature is meant to help patients with tinnitus. Their tinnitus management system masks the sounds of tinnitus and provides a collection of pre-programmed sounds
ReSound was the first hearing aid brand to offer Made-for-iPhone compatibility, but until recently the hearing aids only streamed directly from Apple devices. In 2019, Resound made the LiNX Quattro the first hearing aid to provide support for direct wireless audio streaming from Android devices. Google later released an update to the Android 10 operating system and Google’s Pixel smartphones became the first Android phones to support direct streaming to hearing aids.
Resound LiNX Quattro comes in 9, 7 and 5 performance levels with the 9 considered the “high-end” model.
