ReSound LiNX 3D was developed in collaboration with Apple.
Launched in May 2017, the LiNX 3D by ReSound has been honored as an Innovation Award winner at CES 2018 and I had the opportunity to speak with them at the show. ReSound is showcasing their award-winning hearing aid that was developed alongside with engineers from Apple. The ReSound LiNX 3D is the only hearing aid with complete remote fine-tuning capabilities. This makes it easier for users to adjust their hearing aids without having to make a trip to the audiologist.
With ReSound LiNX 3D – GN Hearing’s 5th generation 2.4 GHz wireless technology and 3rd generation binaural directionality – hearing aid users will experience excellent sound quality, including up to 50% better performance versus other products at identifying speech in various environments, will hear up to 80% more sounds around them, and understand up to 40% more speech in noise. ReSound LiNX 3D delivers clear exceptional speech understanding and the best sense of where sounds are coming from.
ReSound is also highlighting a new feature, ReSound Assist, which further enables users to stay in touch with their hearing care professional wherever they are via the ReSound Smart 3D app. This provides users with hearing care and new settings for their devices securely through the cloud without having to make an office visit.
Today, the average hearing aid user conducts 4-7 follow-up visits to the clinic to optimize their hearing aid settings. ReSound’s new remote fine-tuning capability has the promise to reduce that number, improving healthcare outcomes, and saving time for the user to focus on other priorities. With the ReSound LiNX 3D, the hearing care professional can make all fine-tunings remotely to provide an even better hearing care experience for the user.
