Hearing aids and headphones are a natural marriage in the world of smartphones, but we’ve yet to see something as simple and small as this new device, Linx from ReSound. The hearing device tucks neatly inside the user’s ear and is controlled with Bluetooth technology to stream wirelessly from any iPhone, iPad, or iPod.
The in-ear device also uses geolocation to tune a user’s audio environment, an elegant touch that brings ease of use to sound amplification devices. With the app, it’s a great tool for those suffering from hearing impaired:
- The accompanying ReSound Smart App allows users to set preferred volume levels as well as treble/bass settings, and use geo-tagging to assign and adjust to the acoustics of frequently visited places like home, work, favorite restaurants and more. ReSound Smart™ also features a ‘Find My Hearing Aid’ function to help users pinpoint their hearing aids if misplaced.
- ReSound LiNX is the smallest wireless Receiver-in-the-Ear hearing aid brought to market by GN ReSound, yet powerful enough to address 90% of all hearing losses.
- GN ReSound’s unique 3rd generation 2.4 GHz wireless technology, based on the all newSmartRange™ chipset, is the foundation of this latest technological breakthrough. ReSound LiNX is the first hearing aid on the market to integrate SmartRange with Bluetooth® Smart technology.
