Linx Quattro Rie Lt62

The Resound LiNX 3D and Quattro Ranges

Danish manufacturer GN Resound, commonly known as just Resound despite them trying to re-brand as simply "GN" have been making hearing aids in the Linx family since 2014 and along with Starkey were the pioneers of the MFI or "made for iPhone" hearing aid. That is the origin of the naming of this product as it links (or Linx in this case) to other devices using Bluetooth.

Wireless Capability

Since the original Linx came out there have been successive iterations of the hearing aid every few years with the Linx2 coming out in 2015, the Linx 3D in 2017 and the Linx Quattro in November 2018. Each advance has improved the performance and with the Linx Quattro, lithium Ion rechargeable models are now available too.

Resound Quattro Charger Visual

With Quattro came rechargeable

The rechargeable option is good. You get 24 hours of wear typically, even if you use streaming a lot. For normal zinc-air battery users, expect a 15-20% better battery life as the new chip is more efficient. If you are looking for both Made for iPhone technology and Lithium-ion rechargeable in one aid, then the Quattro is a solid choice.

  • This is the rechargeable Linx Quattro 9 61 – push button control.
Resound 9 62 Visual

Linx Quattro 9 62

  • Linx Quattro 9 62 (Size 13 battery only) – rocker switch control
  • They are both similar dimensions to the Linx 3D models, just a little bit “fatter”.
Resound Enzo

Superpower option

The Linx range are suitable for hearing losses ranging from Mild to severe. There is an option for the profoundly deaf that uses the same core technology but in a larger BTE unit. This model is known as the Enzo and the naming progression is just the same with the Enzo2 and Enzo 3D having followed the original.

Things to consider

  • + The iPhone app is excellent, arguably better than any other
  • + Android compatibility from late 2019
  • + Quattro rechargeable option is solid
  • - Relatively minor improvements in performance since the Linx2 range leave Resound behind many other manufacturers
  • - App updates can be slow to come out, this sometimes causes the app to stop working after an IOS update
  • Common misunderstanding - Just because this is a made for iPhone hearing aid, does not mean that you need an iPhone to use it. With this, and in fact any other hearing aid, the Bluetooth features are completely optional for those people who want more control over their hearing aid. This type of aid is no more complicated to use than any other, you can still just put it in and leave it functioning fully automatically and let it adapt to your environment itself.

Managing Director & founder of Hearing Aid UK, with over 20 years of audiology experience and a member of the British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists Council (BSHAA).

Features common to the Linx Quattro, Linx 3D and Enzo 3D models

BINAURAL DIRECTIONALITY™ III

What it does:
Continuous ear-to-ear exchange of data about the environment optimizes polar patterns and microphone settings in any listening situation.
What this means to you:
You can focus on the sounds that are important to you without losing touch with what’s going on around you. Providing the brain with the right information from both ears lets you effortlessly follow conversations and shift attention naturally.

SPATIAL SENSE

What it does:
Combines algorithms that restore pinna cues and interaural level differences to provide the brain with natural acoustic information for spatial hearing.
What this means to you:
Enables you to detect where sounds are coming from, so that you experience a more natural sense of your surroundings and achieve a better sound quality.

BINAURAL ENVIRONMENTAL™ OPTIMIZER II

What it does:
The hearing aids work together to analyze and accurately classify the listening environment, automatically adjusting gain and noise reduction settings.
What this means to you:
You can enjoy optimal audibility and listening comfort even when moving through rapidly changing sound environments.

NOISE TRACKER™ II

What it does:
A unique spectral subtraction technology reduces unwanted noise without degrading the speech signal.
What this means to you:
Improves your comfort in noisy listening situations without compromising speech understanding.

DFS ULTRA™ II WITH MUSIC MODE™

What it does:
High precision feedback path analysis enables DFS Ultra II to cancel feedback with extreme accuracy. Music Mode analyzes the sound over a longer period of time, so the system can better distinguish true feedback from music and other tonal sounds.
What this means to you:
You can now enjoy extra comfort, better audibility and all the subtle nuances of rich sound, even in the most challenging situations. Music Mode provides you with a clearer, richer, distortion-free music experience as the hearing aid no longer treats some parts of music as unwanted feedback.

TINNITUS SOUND GENERATOR AND NATURE SOUNDS™

What it does:
Programmable customized tinnitus therapy sounds as well as Nature Sounds.
What this means to you:
Helps you break the ‘vicious cycle’ and achieve some relief from tinnitus by diverting attention through a wide range of soothing background sounds.

We polled our audiologists back in 2015, here are their opinions

These reviews were all of the second generation of the Linx hearing aids, the Linxand the Enzo2, however much of the core technology is unchanged so these opinions are still valid.


 Reviews

Great results with all Linx2 9’s fitted. I’d rate them six out of five!
Linx is the the must have aid for the tech savvy silver surfer. Good sound quality + excellent connectivity.
Top notch aid that shows the others up. However some more elderly or less active people might not have much use for the smartphone stuff, streaming etc.

Source – Audiologist in Yorkshire.

The massive flexibility demonstrated by the Resound devices in their ability to connect to the Apple iPhone and other smart phones without the need for wearing a dongle would in my opinion make them come out top.

ReSound Linx2 – I have fitted approximately 100 ReSound Linx2 now and have found them to be excellent in all aspects from a dispensing point of view. I am often surprised at the level of amplification in the high frequencies that can be achieved with no risk of feedback. Clients report a natural clear sound and they love the ability to control some of the features with their smartphones.
I judge a clients suitability for Linx2 carefully as it is important that the client has good cognitive ability. The increased spacial awareness these aids provide can overwhelm those with reduced cognitive function. It also helps if the client has some interest in technology.
In summary I would wholeheartedly recommend ReSound Linx2 for demanding clients looking for a high tech solution to their hearing difficulties.
Regarding Enyas, I have fitted a few but not enough to be 100% objective on them. My opinion is that the sound quality is as good as other Resound products but the exterior casing of the RICs is less good.

Source – Audiologist in Dorset.

Linx2 9 –  Having fitted many of these the response I’ve had has been positive. The clients have reported significant benefit with speech in noise and feedback management is great. They have been the choice for some clients over other products they have tried. The only slight letdown is the music streaming feature where some clients have complained that it sounds metallic and tinny
Enzo 7 Superpower – Fitted a pair of these to a profoundly deaf lady recently who loves them. Made a massive difference to her hearing and completely changed her life. The only drawback is the size of them, they are quite big and not the nicest looking BTE’s available but technology wise, brilliant.
Enya 3- Fitted several and they all have been returned. Awful aid, poor in terms of helping people hear speech clearly and quite ugly looking for a RIC. One client even suggested it was the worst she had tried! I swapped her to a {different hearing aid] which was less expensive and much more successful. Cant even justify giving it 1 star.

The resound Linx 2 has been on the whole extremely positive. I have fitted over a hundred pairs with 95% success rate. It is powerful and has a more versatile fitting range than the {other manufacturer} and {different hearing aids} in comparison. They have an effective feedback system, probably one of the better ones I have found. The build quality is good and I have only been let down by malfunctioning aids on a handful of occasions. The app flexibility and control is the clear distinction between this and other manufacturers. Patients are generally delighted with the performance.

The linx is overrated in my opinion – clever with it’s connectivity to iphones, but there are better hearing aids. I sometimes get interference whilst the hearing aids are in streaming mode.

Source – Audiologist in Yorkshire.

I was put off by 2 poor fittings on mild to moderate losses where feedback caused problems. This greatly surprised me as i was a great advocate of previous Resound products, particularly the Alera 761.

Source – Audiologist in Scotland.

Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner, we have been in Oslo with {different hearing aid manufacturer}
We have fitted many Linx2, all models through the range, IIC to RIC.
The Linx2 is great for those who are perhaps a little younger and tech savvy and for those who like to be in control. The app is excellent and easy to use. Resound seem to have ironed out the connectivity issues, but streaming is sometimes ‘tinny’ with music, so if music is important, I would not recommend.
I am waiting to see how the new {different hearing aid} model performs in comparison.

Source – Audiologist in Chichester.

The Resound Linx 2 9 is the best 2015 hearing aid on the market. It has the best connectivity with the iphone or Samsung direct to phone app and the best sound quality of any 2015 hearing aid in background noise available. The app gives amazing user control over the sound and functions of the hearing aid and the music streaming and phone calls through the hearing aids is very good.
I like the attractive design of the RICs and the excellent DFS feedback system which gives great power without whistling. Disadvantages are the receiver wires which are quite springy and occasionally don’t fit well. The ITEs also have the same specs and connectivity in the canal sizes and above. The smallest CIC / IIC aids don’t have any user control though. The 9s and 7s are best in class for top and 2nd level technology. Cancellation rates are very low, very few clients don’t get on with them.

Source – Audiologist in Sussex.

As you know, we really like the Resond aids. We find the Linx2 5 is suitable for those with limited hearing requirements and the Linx2 7 and 9 can cope with many more varied listening environments.
We are currently working with a 90% success rate and this is due mainly to excellent noise reduction / speech enhancement and spacial awareness like we have never experienced before.
This, combined with the Apple product pairing and the easy to use App gives us complete confidence in fitting this product.

Source – Audiologist in Wiltshire.

The Linx2 9 is ideal for apple users as linking up needs no other gizmos.
Sound quality and customer satisfaction has been good.
Downside is that battery life is poor for the smallest aids that use a size 10 battery, worst case about 3 days.
An aid for Apple lovers.
