ReSound LiNX2 5 Hearing Aids
ReSound LiNX2 5 Hearing Aids are advanced digital bluetooth hearing aids ideal for people who are very sociable, but are mostly active in less noisy environments. It supersedes the original LiNX 5 and uses the newest version of ReSound’s dual-core Coyote 4.5 processing chip which assigns one processor to deal with the sound processing, and the other to wireless functionality. The LiNX2 5 hearing aids have twice the processing power of the previous generation of chips but without additional battery consumption. The original LiNX 5 was only available in behind the ear(BTE) models, whilst this newest version has the full range of styles.
The ReSound LiNX2 5 hearing aids feature 9 Warp Channels
Generally the more sound processing channels hearing aid have, the more accurately they can be programmed for various types of hearing loss. The idea is to replicate what your inner ear should be doing, and around 17 or 18 channels are considered to be the optimum number. So having many more channels may not provide further improvement.
Binaural Directionality II
When background noise levels rise, the hearing aids will zoom your hearing to the front to help you to hear speech sounds from in front of you.
Noise Tracker II
This improves your comfort in noisy situations without making it harder to understand speech. The LiNX2 5 has relatively basic noise reduction compared to the LiNX2 9 and the LiNX2 7
If there are high frequency sounds that you can no longer hear due to cochlear dead regions they can be shifted down the frequency spectrum to a range where you can hear. This improves the how well you hear important speech cues that would otherwise have been lost.
Music Mode gives you a clearer, richer, distortion-free music experience.
Tinnitus Sound Generator and Nature Sounds
Choose from tinnitus therapy sounds, new Nature Sounds, or your preferred sound streamed directly to your hearing aids. The ReSound Relief and ReSound Smart apps provide even more options for managing your tinnitus. This helps to break the “cycle” and provides relief from tinnitus by diverting attention away from it with a range of soothing background sounds.
Made for iPhone
Unlike its predecessor the LiNX 5, the LiNX2 5 is fully compatible with the Smart app enabling it to communicate with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and the new Apple Watch using the app which you can download. This means you can stream stereo sound directly to your hearing aids as if you were wearing wireless headphones. You can access voice calls, FaceTime, music, movies, spoken directions, information and any other audio from your iPhone/iPad.
The LiNX2 5 lets you connect directly from your device to the hearing aids without using intermediary devices, although they are also compatible with the whole range of ReSound Unite wireless accessories. You can discreetly adjust the volume, bass or treble using the app whilst Geotag helps the aid to remember what settings you preferred for any particular location so that you can set the aid to work in the same way next time you visit that area. You can even use the app to help find your LiNX2 5 hearing aids if you misplace them.
