New Information on the GN ReSound LiNX™- the World's First "Made for iPhone®" Hearing Aid

GN ReSound recently shared more information about the new LiNX™ hearing aid (the world's first "made for iPhone®" hearing aid) at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show. Below are some highlights from the information that was shared.

Features of the LiNX™ hearing aid include:

  • The LiNX™ wirelessly connects to iPhones, iPads®, and iPod® Touch devices without the use of a streamer or intermediary device.
    • Therefore, the audio of an iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch can be heard in both hearing aids.
      • The hearing aids can act as a type of headset so the user can listen to directions as they're driving, participate in phone conversations, and listen to music in both hearing aids.
  • An app can be downloaded for the LiNX™ that will allow the user to:
    • Find the hearing aids if they're lost
    • Use an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch as a remote control for the hearing aids
      • Use the device to change the settings of the hearing aids
      • Use the device to program the hearing aids to switch settings in different acoustic environments
    • Use an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch as a microphone that will stream the user's voice directly to both hearing aids
  • The LiNX™ is the smallest RIE (receiver-in-ear) device powered by a size 312 battery GN ReSound has ever produced
