GN ReSound Expands LiNX Quattro Hearing Aid Family with Launch of Custom Line

BALLERUP, DENMARK – GN Hearing has announced the launch of a suite of new custom-crafted hearing aids. Until now, the ReSound LiNX Quattro technology had only been available in a Receiver-In-Canal style. Now users wanting the same performance and connectivity have the option of a custom solution.

According to the company, the custom hearing aids are designed to fit exactly to the ear canal of every individual user, using a 3D scanner and advanced personalized modelling. Sitting discreetly in the ear canal, the design can also bring extra confidence to the user that may be uncomfortable wearing an over-the-ear device.

“ReSound LiNX Quattro has been very well received by people with hearing loss. We are dedicated to bringing the technological benefits to more users, who prefer wearing their hearing aids discreetly in the ear canal. These technological wonders in miniature are truly personalized and custom-crafted to fit each person’s hearing, yet with the brilliant sound and excellent streaming that people appreciate.”

Jakob Gudbrand, President and CEO of GN Hearing

According to the company, a recently published independent study, streaming music and speech from an iPhone was top-rated for ReSound LiNX Quattro compared to other hearing aids1.

Users can benefit from using the new small and discreet customs like headphones for taking calls and streaming their favorite music and TV shows. They can also stream sound directly to the hearing aids from an iPhone with no need for intermediate devices and the hearing aids are built for direct Android™ streaming, too.2

 

2.4 GHz Direct Connectivity for Streaming, Down to CIC Level

 

Four new options are available: the first Completely-in-Canal (CIC) 2.4 GHz wireless hearing aid for direct streaming,  In-the-Canal (ITC) and In-the-Ear (ITE) models, and the industry’s only Mic-in-Helix (MIH) hearing aid.
