General Features

The Resound Linx 3D 5 is the least technologically sophisticated of the Resound Linx 3D range of hearing aids, however we would describe it as mid-level rather than basic, as you would expect if it were following the example of many other hearing aid ranges. This is because the technology and features found in the Linx 3D 5 essentially equal those of the premium level aids from Resound’s older ranges. If you are looking for a more basic entry level aid then you would probably be better off looking at Resound’s older Enya range.

There are a number of common features that run across the entire Resound Linx 3D range (the premium Linx 3D 9, the second in line Linx 3D 7 and the mid-level Linx 3D 5), which are fully detailed on our general Resound Linx 3D page .

However there are a number of major differences between the cheaper Linx 3D 5 hearing aids and the more expensive Linx 3D 9 and Linx 3D 7 models, that justify the price difference. These include:

Adaptive Directionality

This feature, as found in the Linx 3D 5, is the forerunner of the more sophisticated binaural directionality technologies that are featured in the Linx 3D 9 and 3D 7 models. It is a more simplistic approach to directional sound detection that does result in a more natural feel, as it aims to more closely mimic how your ears would naturally detect the direction of sound. However if you spend a lot of time in noisy environments you may find that the focus of the sound is compromised – hence this technology being superseded by the more sophisticated binaural directionality.

Spatial Sense

This function is only available in the Linx 3D 9, so as above, you may find it more difficult to identify where sounds are coming from.

Basic Noise Tracker

This is a less sophisticated version of the ‘Advanced Noise Tracker’ technologies that are found in the Linx 3D 9 and 3D 7. It’s function is to reduce background noise allowing you to focus in on the sounds that you do want to hear without being distracted by irrelevant noises. This basic version of Resound’s noise tracker technology is definitely less effective than in the more expensive models, however it is still in line with some of the premium models from other hearing aid ranges.

Environmental Optimiser

This function is not present in the Linx 3D 5 at all. The versions of this technology found in the Linx 3D 9 and 3D 7 ranges allow your hearing aids to adjust quickly and smoothly to even rapidly changing sound environments. So you may struggle without this function if you spend time in lots of different environments.

Channels

The Linx 3D 5 only has 12 warp channels, compared to the Linx 3D 9’s 17 and the Linx 3D 7’s 14. Warp processing is a process by which the hearing aid warps frequencies to replicate the way that your ear would naturally break sounds down into distinctive pitches. Each channel analyses and warps different frequency ranges (which also overlap). The higher the number of channels the more naturally the sound waves can be processed by your inner ear.

Adjustable Directional Mix

This is another feature missing entirely from the Linx 3D 5, only being available in the Linx 3D 9. It allows functions and settings to be tailored to meet your specific needs and preferences, rather than having to choose from a number of more general settings.

Wind Guard

Although this function is present in the Linx 3D 5, it is much less sophisticated than the version of the technology found in the Linx 3D 9 and Linx 3D 7. Although wind noise is reduced, it is to a lesser degree than in the more expensive models.

As you can see there are a number of differences between the Linx 3D 5 and the other models in the Resound Linx 3D range of hearing aids. However if you do not require such a high level of technological features, but still want an effective hearing aid, the Linx 3D 5 could still be the right model for you.
