Who Is Resound And Should You Upgrade ?

by | Oct 26, 2018 | Hearing Aids, Patient Resources

I’d like to introduce you to one of the most exciting breakthroughs in the hearing world, for many years.

When it comes to choosing the right hearing aids, it can be an overwhelming decision.

With countless manufacturers producing numerous variations of technology, with different names and in a rainbow of colors – it can be incredibly confusing.

The truth is, until you need hearing aids, you never gave them a second thought – it’s why most hearing aids are purchased based on how they look over any other reason.

It’s also the reason that patients trust audiologists to help them make the right decision based on their specific needs, requirements, and budget.

You’re reading this because you trust your audiologist’s expertise and take recommendations based on our experience; and today, I’d like to introduce you to one of the most exciting breakthroughs in the hearing world, for many years.

Leading manufacturer ReSound has recently launched their highly anticipated LiNX Quattro, their latest technology.

In this post, I want to share everything that you need to know about this groundbreaking technology (in simple terms).

Who Is Resound?

ReSound is one of the most trusted hearing aid manufacturers in the world.

With their roots tracing back to 1943, their headquarters is in Denmark and their parent company began almost 150 years ago as the Great Northern Telegraph Company.

They were the first hearing aid manufacturer to deliver 2.4GBz technology in hearing aids for direct connectivity and in 2013, they launched the first ever hearing aid made for iPhones and iPads, called LiNX.

What’s Their New Hearing Aid Called?

After much anticipation, ReSound has launched their brand new “LiNX Quattro” technology.

What Makes LiNX Quattro Different?

There are three big differentiations with the LiNX Quattro.

1. They Have Incredible Rechargeable Battery Life.

One of the biggest challenges that our patients face with hearing aids is the poor battery life, whether they require replaceable batteries or rechargeable batteries – the power of the technology drains the battery and can leave the user feeling lost with unpowered hearing aids in their ears.

But with the new LiNX Quattro, a single three-hour charge results in 30 hours of battery life, making them the longest lasting hearing aids on the market.

Best of all, they come with a small, sleek charger case that can be carried in your pocket or handbag, which you can charge your hearing aids in.

The super-charge allows you to have 16 hours of battery life in exchange for a one-hour charge, or a mighty 2.7 hours of battery life in exchange for just ten minutes of charge.

2. Sync with Your Apple and Android Cell/Tablet

One of the great things about ReSound’s LiNX product range is the ability to connect your hearing aids to your Apple Device, so that you can stream music, podcasts, or calls directly from your cell/tablet to your hearing aids.

However, these features have only been available to Apple users.

But with the new ReSound LiNX Quattro, you can now connect your hearing aids to your Android device. With 60% of all cell phones in the US being Android, this opens a world of possibilities.

This also allows you to take advantage of ReSound’s app that links directly with your hearing aids, allowing you to check battery power, personalize your hearing aids, soothe tinnitus through soothing background noise, and find misplaced hearing aids.

The best part is, your hearing aids can also be remotely fine-tuned using “ReSound Assist,” which allows your audiologist to remotely fix any problems, or help without you having to travel for an appointment.

3. Revolutionary Unprecedented Layers of Sound™.

Year-on-year, the sound quality of hearing aids is getting better and better.

But with the launch of the ReSound LiNX Quattro, it’s made one of the biggest leaps that we’ve seen through their revolutionary unprecedented Layers of Sound™.

Through this breakthrough technology, you can comfortably hold conversations in noisy environments without overwhelming background noise or distortion.

Perfect for musicians, the new technology makes both low and high-pitched sounds fuller and more natural, resulting in the clearest level of hearing that we’ve experienced.

What Do We Think About Them?

Here are some comments from our team of Audiologists about this breakthrough technology:

“It seems like every year manufacturers are releasing a new update to their hearing aids and it leaves us wondering what’s truly different? With LiNX Quattro, we’ve been excited to show patients the differences and really delve into the upgrades and how it improves day-to-day activities for our patients. With patients who have the new technology, it’s been fun to hear their responses. From comments on more clarity and natural sounds, to the excitement about the app updates, it’s been great to be a part of this exciting technology release.” Jana Austin, Au.D.

Jana Emola-Austin, Au.D.

Raised in Bryan, Texas, Jana completed her undergraduate studies at Texas A&M University before attending the University of North Texas with an ambition to earn her master’s degree in speech pathology. However, a required audiology class soon set her on a new career path. She became enthralled with the subject and says audiology resonated with her because it involved everything she enjoys – helping people to improve their lives and relationships with others and using technology to make positive impacts. Following this revelation, Jana went on to graduate with her Doctor of Audiology degree. After many years of assisting patients in the clinic on a daily basis, Jana’s main responsibilities at Allison Audiology have shifted to a management role. She now works behind the scenes focusing on administrative, management, and marketing responsibilities.
