GN Hearing announced the US launch of a suite of new, custom-crafted hearing aids. The new portfolio is said to package ReSound LiNX Quattro technology with “brilliant sound and excellent streaming into discreet custom-crafted hearing aids,” according to GN’s announcement.
Great hearing is in high demand. Not only are 466 million people around the world living with disabling hearing loss[i], ReSound LiNX Quattro has also reportedly seen a positive reception in the market, which has led to the launch of new custom hearing aids for this model, GN says. Each hearing aid is designed to fit exactly to the ear canal of every individual user, using a 3D scanner and advanced personalized modeling.
In an independent study, streaming music and speech from an iPhone was top-rated for ReSound LiNX Quattro compared to other hearing aids[ii]. According to GN, users can benefit from using the new small and discreet custom features like headphones for taking calls and streaming their favorite music and TV shows. They can also stream sound directly to the hearing aids from an iPhone with no need for intermediate devices and the hearing aids are built for direct Android streaming, too[iii].
“ReSound LiNX Quattro has been very well received by people with hearing loss. We are dedicated to bringing the technological benefits to more users, who prefer wearing their hearing aids discreetly in the ear canal,” said Jakob Gudbrand, President and CEO of GN Hearing. “These technological wonders in miniature are truly personalized and custom-crafted to fit each person’s hearing, yet with the brilliant sound and excellent streaming that people appreciate.”
Four new options are available: a Completely-in-Canal (CIC) 2.4 GHz wireless hearing aid for direct streaming; high-quality, In-the-Canal (ITC) and In-the-Ear (ITE) models; and a Mic-in-Helix (MIH) hearing aid. Each custom-crafted hearing aid comes in five skin-tone colors to help ensure that they are personal and discreet for every user, GN says.
