The Latest Made For iPhone & Made For Android Hearing Aid Platform

The Resound LiNX Quattro 9 hearing aids are the latest top of the range, Made For iPhone and Made For Android hearing aid technology from GN Resound. They are fantastic devices and our experience has been excellent. They deliver outstanding results even in very complex sound situations.

The Quattro works on a completely new chipset and Resound has used that chipset to full effect by completely re-designing their signal processing and the hearing aid features.  While they initially introduced just Receiver In Canal hearing aids, they have now released custom hearing aids on the Quattro platform.

Binaural Directionality III

This is Resound's latest directionality strategy and is a further upgrade to what they have been doing. It involves continuous information exchange between the hearing aids which allows the optimal directionality in the hearing aids for the situation you are in.

What That Means

It simply allows you to focus on the sounds that are important to you, however, it also allows you to be aware of your surroundings. Something that is important so that your natural ability to hear in noise is activated.

Spatial Sense

This combines and preserves natural cues so that the brain has the optimal information for localisation of sound and spatial awareness.

What That Means

Put simply, your ability to localise sounds is hugely important because it is one of the major elements in your ability to listen to the sound you want while ignoring the sound you don't. These devices deliver amazing spatial awareness. 

Binaural Environmental Optimizer II

This feature allows the hearing aid s to work together to analyse the listening environment you are in. It then automatically adjusts the features and amplification to deliver the best experience for you. 

What That Means

Knowing what the sound situation around you accurately is really important, so this feature identifies the situation with high accuracy and then manages the feature set of the hearing aids to deliver the very best hearing for you. This feature and its accuracy is imperative for the function of the aids. Resound are quoting really high accuracy and our experience concurs. 

Noise Tracker II

This is a unique noise reduction system that works on the basis of spectral subtraction. It reduces unwanted noise without affecting the speech signal. 

What That Means

The really important bit here is that it seems to do what they are saying. It is excellent on any noise that is steady state (which means recurring similarlily) like engine noise, background hum of any kind. Steve has seen some excellent benefits in noisy situations in particular in his car. 

DFS Ultra II With Music Mode

A high precision feedback system that allows the cancellation of feedback with extreme accuracy. The Music mode is a slower acting system which allows better handling of music.

What That Means

Feedback is probably one of the most annoying things for users. The feedback system allows the amplification that you need without causing that damned irritating whistling. Having a system which also has a music mode means that your appreciation of music will be better. Sometimes music can sound like feedback, a music mode allows the system a little more time to make sure it isn't and do nothing. That means less distortion for you. 

Resound Assist

Resound Assist is the really big news for both Providers and Users. Resound Assist will allow your provider to adjust your hearing aids remotely. That means if you want adjustments on the go, they can be provided without you having to attend the clinic. The system is really easy to use and is quite intuitive. This might not be for everyone, but this feature will be a god send for the people who love it. It will allow them complete freedom over their experience, over their customer experience.

The App, Resound Smart 3D

The accompanying app also allows you personalise your hearing experience in a deeper way. It has been re-designed to be more intuitive and easier to use and it offers real control. Again, this might not be for everyone, but for those who want it, it will enrich their experience. Again, this has to be seen as an excellent thing.

The Receiver in Ear Models

Resound LiNX Quattro 9 RE 61 RIC (Receiver In Canal)

There is three Receiver In Canal hearing aid models in the Quattro range.

LiNX Quattro 9 LT61 RIE hearing aid

 

A Lithium-ion Rechargeable Made For iPhone Hearing Aid

The LiNX Quattro RE-61 is a rechargeable direct connection, Bluetooth enabled or Made For iPhone hearing aid just like all the LiNX devices before it. It is also a Made For Android device. Resound has redesigned the wireless radio though and they say that it is more powerful than ever before. That should translate into pretty stable connection to the iPhone and Android phones.

Making it a rechargeable device makes a lot of sense, although they have used the chip upgrades to improve power consumption, a rechargeable option allows you the comfort of never having to worry about hearing aid batteries. The battery life is also fantastic, they say that you will get 24 hours of life even if you are streaming for 50% of the time, that's pretty amazing.

The charger case is worth mentioning, it is an excellent design and it carries extra charges for the hearing aids which means that you can go away for a long weekend and forget your plug happily. Although the rechargeable devices don't have telecoils onboard, if you pair a multi-mic with the devices you can get access to induction loops.

Resound LiNX Quattro 9 62 RIC (Receiver In Canal)

LiNX Quattro 9 LT62 RIE hearing aidThe RE-62 is a traditional zinc-air powered device that takes a size 13 battery. It has a telecoil onboard and offers a multi-functional button which acts as volume control and programme button. The device is water-resistant. This might be the device for you if you want an on-board telecoil receiver.

 

Resound say that the new power management system will increase the battery life of the 62 type device by 20%. We reckon that most modern 13 battery hearing aids will offer you about 5 to 7 days of use even with reasonable amounts of streaming. You will be lucky to get much more than that.

The device is also a Made For iPhone / Made For Android device and it will cover hearing losses from mild all the way through to severe to profound depending on the receiver that is fitted. While this is the only Quattro RIC with a telecoil, if you use a multi-mic with the rechargeables, the multi-mic will give you access to induction loop systems.

 

Resound LiNX Quattro 9 61 RIC (Receiver In Canal)

LiNX Quattro 9 LT61 RIE hearing aidThe RE-61 is a traditional zinc-air powered device that takes a size 312 battery. It doesn't have a telecoil onboard but does offer a multi-functional button which acts as volume control and programme button. The device is water-resistant. This might be the device for you if you want traditionally powered discreet RIC.

 

Resound say that the new power management system will increase the battery life of the 61 type device by 20%. We reckon that most modern 312 battery hearing aids will offer you about 5 days of use even with reasonable amounts of streaming. You will be lucky to get much more than that.

The device is also a Made For iPhone / Made For Android device and it will cover hearing losses from mild all the way through to severe to profound depending on the receiver that is fitted. While this is the doesn't have a telecoil, if you use a multi-mic, the multi-mic will give you access to induction loop systems.

The Custom Models

Resound LiNX Quattro Custom Hearing Aid Models

Resound introduced the custom Quattro hearing aids in 2019. The Quattro is available in five custom models and it has the first ever Made For iPhone and Made For Android Completely In Canal hearing aid available. Let's take a look at what is on offer:

Resound LiNX Quattro 9 MIH (Microphone In Helix Hearing Aid)

Resound LiNX Quattro 9 LTMIHThe LTMIH is a microphone in helix custom hearing aid that is unique to GN Hearing. Because it is so small you will lose some of the benefits of the technology. However, that is always the trade-off for discretion. The device is available with four levels of receiver power, LP, MP, HP and UP which means it can cover a lot of hearing loss, in fact from mild all the way to severe to profound. Again, the size of receiver available is based on the size of your ear canal. If your canal is too small, you won't be able to avail of the higher power receivers.

The functional features of this model are as follows, it can have a push button, volume control, the devices all have smart start which gives you a couple of seconds to get it in your ear before it comes on. However, you will get the direct audio streaming from iPhones or Android phones, ear to ear communication, and wireless accessories. More importantly, you will get access to the Smart 3D app and all the benefits that it delivers to your experience. There is a telecoil on-board, however, it is only available with the MP HP and UP receiver versions. You will still lose all the directional benefits though as they only come with one mic. The battery size on these models can be 312 or size 13. 

Resound LiNX Quattro 9 CIC (Completely in Canal)

LiNX Quattro 9 LTCIC hearing aidThe LTCIC is slightly on the large side for a CIC, from what I have seen I would more call it an ITC (In The Canal). It is still a discrete device, because it is so small you will lose some of the benefits of the technology. However, that is always the trade-off for discretion. The device is available with four levels of receiver power, LP, MP, HP and UP which means it can cover a lot of hearing loss, in fact from mild all the way to severe to profound. Again, the size of receiver available is based on the size of your ear canal. If your canal is too small, you won't be able to avail of the higher power receivers.

The functional features of this model are as follows, it can have a push button, volume control, the devices all have smart start which gives you a couple of seconds to get it in your ear before it comes on. However, you will get direct audio streaming from iPhones or Android phones, ear to ear communication, and wireless accessories. More importantly, you will get access to the Smart 3D app and all the benefits that it delivers to your experience. The battery size on this aid is size 10.

By choosing discretion you do lose out on a lot of features and benefit. Firstly, there is no telecoil, something that many like. You lose all the directionality functions because you only have one mic, no Wind Guard.

Resound LiNX Quattro 9 ITC (In The Canal)

Resound LiNX Quattro 9 LTITC hearing aidThe LTITC is an in the canal hearing aid which is slightly larger than a CIC. Like it's smaller brother the CIC, because it is a smaller device, you may lose some of the benefits of the technology. The device is available with four levels of receiver power, LP, MP, HP and UP which means it can cover a lot of hearing loss, in fact from mild all the way to severe to profound. Again, the size of receiver available is based on the size of your ear canal. If your canal is too small, you won't be able to avail of the higher power receivers.

The functional features of this model are as follows, it can have a push button, volume control, the devices all have smart start which gives you a couple of seconds to get it in your ear before it comes on. You will get the direct audio streaming to iPhone and Android phones, ear to ear communication, and wireless accessories.

More importantly, you will get access to the Smart 3D app and all the benefits that it delivers to your experience. There is a telecoil on-board, however, it is only available with the MP HP and UP receiver versions. The battery size on this aid is 312.

 

Resound LiNX Quattro 9 ITE (In The Ear)

Resound LiNX Quattro 9 LTITE hearing aidThe LTITE is an in the ear or full shell hearing aid which is the largest Resound Custom. The device is available with four levels of receiver power, LP, MP, HP and UP which means it can cover a lot of hearing loss, in fact from mild all the way to severe to profound. Again, the size of receiver available is based on the size of your ear canal. If your canal is too small, you won't be able to avail of the higher power receivers.

The functional features of this model are as follows, it can have a push button, volume control, the devices all have smart start which gives you a couple of seconds to get it in your ear before it comes on. You will get the direct audio streaming to iPhone and Android phones, ear to ear communication, and wireless accessories. More importantly, you will get access to the Smart 3D app and all the benefits that it delivers to your experience.

There is a telecoil on-board, however, it is only available with the MP HP and UP receiver versions. These hearing aids use a size 13 battery. The battery life delivered by the 13 battery will be the best in the range.
