As the first Made for iPhone hearing aid, the LiNX2 provides wearers with an exceptional experience of accessibility. Connecting to the iPhone allows wearers to stream phone calls, FaceTime, music, and media directly from the device to their hearing aids, feeding a clear, high-quality stream of sound. Additionally, while connected to the ReSound Smart App, wearers may adjust their program features and volumes with ease, giving wearers a level of discreetness.
The LiNX2 has the capability to geo-tag locations: when wearers make adjustments to meet their needs in various environments, the LiNX2 and app remember these settings and automatically re-adjust them when the wearer returns to specific locations. This provides a seamless and natural listening experience.
In particularly challenging noise situations, wearers may use the Live Listen feature, which turns the iPhone into an assistive listening device. Wearers simply enable the iPhone’s microphone and connect to the LiNX2 app, then place the phone near the person they are conversing with or the sounds they specifically want to amplify. This improves sound quality, focus, and speech recognition.
LiNX2 Technology and Features
ReSound LiNX2 offers new technology and features that improves upon the success of the LiNX. With Wide Dynamic Range Compression sound processing technology and Digital Feedback Suppression, the LiNX2 simultaneously processes sound at an incredibly fast speed while also eliminating the whistling and buzzing of feedback.
LiNX2 hearing aids are equipped with an updated Spatial Sense feature as well as the New Binaural Directionality II, which helps to situate wearers within their surroundings by simulating binaural hearing (hearing with both ears). With a clearer signal of sound, the brain is able to process the directions from which sounds are coming. Additionally, ReSound equips the LiNX2 with their revolutionary Surround Sound technology, which helps differentiate sound in challenging noise environments.
The LiNX2 also improves upon speech recognition and sound quality, and constructed to ward off the elements, dust, water, and sweat with its iSolate nanotech coating.
Custom styles and choices
ReSound offers the LiNX2 in a variety of models: invisible-in-canal, in-the-ear, receiver-in-canal, and behind-the-ear. The LiNX2 treats a range of hearing loss from mild to profound, and also offers a Nature Sounds tinnitus therapy option. The LiNX2’s SureFit ergonomic design may be customized to give wearers maximum comfort.
