here is what they had to say
ReSound LiNX Quattro™ defines a new category in hearing aids: Premium-Plus
ReSound LiNX Quattro™ represents a combination of benefits that no other hearing aids offer, including:
Rechargeability: Longest rechargeable battery life available. Users benefit from an integrated Li-ion battery with 24 hours of use even when streaming 50% of the time.
Access to clearer, fuller and richer Layers of Sound™
With ReSound LiNX Quattro™ GN Hearing introduces a new chip platform and its 6th generation of 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity. Compared to ReSound LiNX 3D™, the new chip enables 100% faster processing, 100% additional memory, 35% increase in frequency bandwidth, and the highest input dynamic range in the industry. With a new chip platform, a completely rewritten sound processing package, a redesigned wireless radio with extra signal strength and a unique utilisation of microphones, sounds are passed to the amplifier without being altered. The result is a brilliant experience with Layers of Sound™ that is designed to inspire confidence in people with hearing loss, so that they can enjoy the moments that matter most.
“ReSound LiNX Quattro is the perfect choice for people who want to upgrade to a new premium-plus class of hearing aids that deliver unprecedented Layers of Sound and the longest battery life available in stylish, discreet designs,” said Paul Daft, Managing Director, GN Hearing UK. “Most importantly, the richer sound quality helps people hear better and be more present in their daily lives. Whether at a loud dinner party or business meeting in a quiet café, people can hear a fuller, clearer range of sounds, allowing them to focus on the conversation while still hearing the sounds around them.”
ReSound Assist™ enables personalised care from anywhere
The ReSound Assist™ feature connects hearing aid users with their hearing care professionals via the ReSound Smart 3D™ app, allowing remote adjustment of their hearing aids without having to visit the clinic. This is especially beneficial for users who have limited mobility, live in rural areas, have active lives and busy careers, or need to travel long distances to visit their hearing care professional.
In a study to examine the impact of remote fine-tuning on hearing care professionals and users, results showed that 100 percent of hearing care professionals said they would recommend remote fine-tuning to peers, and 94 percent said it helps them provide users with a better hearing experience. The same study showed that 77 percent of users think their new settings improve their hearing, while 89 percent said they would recommend remote fine-tuning to other hearing aid users.
