July 2016 update – The Resound LiNX² range has now been fully reviewed. Please scroll down to “Resound LiNX² – reviews by audiologists”  for further details.

General Features

The new LiNX² 9 is the new and improved iteration of the worlds first Made for iPhone hearing aid, the Linx 9. Part of the new range of wireless hearing aids from GN ReSound which also includes the LiNX² 7.
Ideal for the more challenging listening environments, this premium hearing aid has all the features of the LiNX² 7 plus many more. The LiNX² 9 also has four flexible programmes which can be tailored to suit your lifestyle and hearing needs.
There are 17 channels which process the different hearing frequencies, raising the volume or compressing and altering the frequencies of sounds outside the hearing range and making them audible.

The powerful 2.4 GHz processor allows ear to ear communication allowing both hearing aids to coordinate seamlessly with each other. This ensures that both hearing aids are always on the same settings for volume and programme. They can also work together for various program settings such as the comfort phone program, where the hearing aid on the telephone side will work to optimise the phone conversation and the other will turn down automatically during the phone call to minimise distractions in the room. When the phone call is finished the hearing aids will automatically switch back to their normal hearing mode.

The Synchronised Soft Switching program allows the hearing aids to adapt to each environment, so if you move from a quiet environment to a noisy one, subtle adjustments will be made to the noise levels to ensure your comfort. When you move back to a quiet environment the volume will adjust again, ensuring the best speech clarity possible in each situation. The Environmental Optimizer program will assess each environment and adjust the volumes appropriately.
The new Surround Sound by ReSound feature lets you hear what is going on all around you and helps you to work out which direction sounds are coming from. There are various directionality programmes which allow you to focus on sound in front of you, such as a person speaking, or sound all around you.

In addition to all these great features, Apple’s technology enable you to use your iPad, iPhone or iPod to adjust your hearing aid programmes, like a remote control. By downloading the Smart App you can change the volume, check the battery life as well as look up cleaning and maintenance information to care for your hearing aids. The user friendly app makes it easy to quickly and discretely change your hearing program.

You can also use the app to stream sound from your Apple device directly to your hearing aids, without the need for any other equipment or cables. This means that you can make hands free phone calls, take part in Skype chats or face time, listen to music, audio books and videos. You can access all of Apple’s features through the Smart app which essentially turn your hearing aids into wireless stereo Bluetooth headphones.

The app also allows you to use GeoTagging to help you find the hearing aids if they get lost. It also allows you to save your hearing aid settings when you are at your favourite locations, so the next time you visit the settings will change automatically.

The LiNX² 9 contains 4 memory programmes and some additional features that are not available with the LiNX² 7. These include the Binaural Directionality II  feature with spacial sense which allows the hearing aids to assess the levels of background noise and volume of conversation and decide which direction to focus on to provide the best speech clarity in a noisy environment.

The AutoScope Adaptive Directionality program allows you to narrow or widen the focus of your hearing depending on whether you are speaking to one person or many people, in a busy environment. You can also set this program to focus on certain sounds or conversation around you. The Natural Directionality program can be set to have on hearing aid focus on sound in front of you whilst the other picks up sounds around the room so you can stay aware of your environment without the background sound being too intrusive.

This hearing aid is ideal for more challenging listening environments with strong background and wind noise reduction features and a powerful environmental optimiser program.Despite its powerful performance this receiver in the ear hearing aid is smaller and more discrete than many of its competitors. Its tough coating makes it waterproof as well as keeping out oil and dust. It is available in a range of ten different colours so you can either blend it in with your hair colour and skin tone or choose something contrasting to show it off.

If this technology interests you but the top model is more than your bank balance can handle then you may want to try the LiNX² 7 or the LiNX² 5

Resound LiNX² – reviews by audiologists

“Hold on, why are these reviews by audiologists rather than customers” I hear you say. Click here for an explanation of our reviewing policy.

Over the last year the Resound Linx2 hearing aids have been the most asked about hearing product we list. Popular amongst audiologists and customers alike and winner of multiple awards, a great many Linx2 hearing aids have now been fitted, but how good are they really? One year on from when they were launched, we asked our audiologists to rate their experiences with these hearing aids so that future customers can better judge whether or not the Linx2 hearing aids are the right ones for them.

As part of our new reviewing strategy we have polled our entire network of independent audiologists to find out what they thought.

We have obtained reviews from our network of independent audiologists with no affiliation to any manufacturer. These audiologists dispense a wide variety of different hearing aids every day so they are in the best position to judge how the Resound Linx2 performs.

The audiologists were asked to rate on a scale one to five stars, each of the Linx2 models, the Linx2 9, Linx2 7 and the Linx2 5. Also some gave their opinions on the superpower version (the Enzo) and the budget version (the Enya). The hearing aids have been compared not to each other, but to the expectations one should have about each particular aid when judged against other hearing aids in the market. They were also invited to write their opinions which we have included below. Where an audiologist has mentioned other hearing aids by another manufacturer, we have blanked out that information. This is simply because we wanted a balanced review discussing the merits of these hearing aids rather than a forum for promoting one product over another.

Star ratings

The Resound Linx2 9 achieved a five star rating.

The Linx2 7 was rated four stars.

The Linx2 5 was rated three stars.

The Enya 4 and 2, two stars.

The Enya 3, one star.

Conclusion

The general consensus is that the Linx2 hearing aids by Resound are very good aids providing great performance, especially in noise. However several people mentioned that Resound’s “budget” version of the aids, the Enya performs far less well. Also noted is that music sometimes sounds tinny when streamed from a device.

Audiologists 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 savy silver surfer. Good sound quality + excellent conectivity.
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.

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.

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.

Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner, we have been in Oslo with {diferent 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.

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 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.

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.

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.
Source – Audiologist in the Essex.
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 built 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.
