The ReSound hearing aid brand was first launched in 1943 and has become the flagship brand of GN Hearing, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of premium hearing aids. With its headquarters in Denmark, GN ReSound has gone on to provide research and technology for the development of cutting-edge hearing devices. Supplying hearing solutions to more than 80 countries, ReSound has been a pioneer within the hearing aid industry, delivering many hearing-industry firsts.
ReSound was the first hearing aid brand to deliver 2.4GHz hearing aid technology for direct connectivity and the world’s first Made-for-Apple hearing aid with stereo sound streaming. ReSound was also responsible for introducing the first open-standard digital clip to give hearing-aid users a more natural and flexible listening experience. In 2014, ReSound created the LiNX hearing aid range for mild to severe hearing loss.
From its launch of the LiNX device, ReSound continued to develop the range and in 2015 introduced the LiNX2 followed by the LiNX 3D in 2017. Each new model provided improved features and performance. Then in 2018, it launched its premium LiNX Quattro hearing aid which offers 30% more processing power and up to 100% more speed. The ReSound LiNX Quattro is designed to give a much clearer and more natural sound combined with an improved wireless system and rechargeable lithium-ion battery and Quick Charge functionality.
The LiNX Quattro is ReSound’s flagship hearing aid model that improves upon their bestselling LiNX 3D and is available in three fitting styles:
There are two key models in the LiNX Quattro range: the LiNX Quattro 9, which is the range’s premium model, and the LiNX Quattro 7 which is the next model down. While the LiNX Quattro 9 has features you can find in the other LiNX models, features unique to the 9 include:
The LiNX Quattro 7 offers better technology than the Quattro 5 such as 12 channels, Noise Tracker II, Expansion, Wind Guard, and Low-Frequency Boost. It also includes features not available in the Resound LiNX Quattro 9, such as:
ReSound hearing aids are usually more affordable compared to other hearing-aid brands that offer similar features. The ReSound LiNX Quattro price will greatly depend on which of the LiNX Quattro models you choose and where you buy it from. Your hearing care professional will be able to advise on LiNX Quattro prices.
ReSound offers a range of wireless hearing aid accessories to accompany and enhance the LiNX Quattro. These include:
The Linx Quattro offers direct streaming to both Android and iPhone and uses an iPhone app that’s superior to many others. The devices come with Lithium-ion rechargeable battery options and a portable charging unit and give users an extended frequency bandwidth and improved hearing performance across both ears.
However, there have been relatively minor performance improvements such as the LiNX2 range since the product was launched. App updates have been slow to be released, which can cause the app to stop working following an IOS update.
