ReSound LiNX Trial - UK Launch - For Free Demo Call 0203 397 9787 UK Coverage

My colleagues and I are excited due to today's launch of the ReSound LiNX "Made For iPhone" MFi hearing aid. Only two industry leaders like Apple and GN ReSound could have pulled off such a feat - seamlessly connecting an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with hearing aids without the need for any wires, headset or intermediate wireless streamer. That's right! You can now stream music, handsfree calls, or the soundtrack of your favourite movie from your iPhone directly to your hearing aids - as long as you are wearing a pair of ReSound LiNX, that is.

ReSound LiNX Features

Let's recap on what you can do with your ReSound LiNX:

ReSound LiNX Hearing Aids - The Latest

ReSound are launching their LiNX hearing aids across this evening and tomorrow morning in the UK. Why is there all this excitement about a hearing aid?

Made For iPhone

The ReSound LiNX is the first Made For iPhone, or MFi, hearing aid. It allows you to connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch directly to your hearing aid and listen to music, take a handsfree phone call, have a Facetime video call, or watch your favourite movie, all with the sound going wirelessly into your ears. There's no need for a separate bluetooth headset or intermediate necklace to go between the iPhone and the LiNX.

ReSound SMART App

Not only that, but with the SMART App, available from the App Store, allows you to adjust the volume and tone, and will even remember your favourite settings in different places using geo-tagging. For instance, when you go to your favourite restaurant or cafe, you might like to switch to the party setting, boost the treble and turn up the volume, but when you go to concerts at the Albert Hall, you might prefer the music setting, with the bass turned up and the volume turned down. The key is, that rather than having to wait for your Audiologist to adjust them for you, you can adjust your ReSound LiNX hearing aids to sound exactly the way you like.

Effective Tinnitus Treatment With The New Phonak Audeo Q90

Flagship Tinnitus Product From Phonak

The Audéo Q90 with Tinnitus Balance is the flagship tinnitus product from Phonak, and I have been getting my feet wet with this impressive piece of kit over the last few weeks. I say impressive, not because of its massive size. On the contrary. The Audeo Q90 is impressive because it fits so much power and technology into such a small, neat and tidy package. But with great power comes great responsibility... and with great technology comes great clarity of speech, even in difficult listening situations! The Swiss design is apparent in how easy the hearing aids are for me as an Audiologist to adjust and fit. My patients keep telling me how clear the sound is, even in extremely noisy places like restaurants or at parties.

Great Technology Means Great Clarity

Amazing new technology in the Siemens Micon range to combat tinnitus

My colleagues and I have been having some fantastic results with the new Siemens Micon range of combination devices.

Technology keeps moving forward

I'm just writing up a full product page on it, but the leap forward they have made reminds me of when Siemens first introduced their e2e (ear to ear) wireless technology back around 2005 and their SoundSmoothing technology not long afterwards. Although e2e initially only synchronised volume control and program changes as well as noise reduction levels between left and right instruments, these technologies were revolutionary at the time, and I remember thinking to myself that there couldn't possibly be a better hearing aid ever, but of course now most manufacturers have some form of wireless communication between the left and right hearing aids and/or mobile phones and televisions, and some form of reducing sudden rattling or clattering noises in their products.

The Closest Yet To A Cure For Tinnitus?

The London Tinnitus Treatment Clinic are proud to announce that we are now a SoundCure Certified Provider, and can assess and fit patients at our Harley Street consulting rooms. The recommended schedule includes an assessment & fitting, a follow-up after one week, a further follow-up after one month, and then every six months or as the patient requires.

To book an assessment and fitting appointment, please call us on 020 7467 8473.

So, who are SoundCure and what is different about their new device? Other tinnitus sound therapy devices were inspired by theories and then research was formulated to try to demonstrate their effectiveness. The Serenade® on the other hand is a medical device that was born out of research that started in 2006, when researchers at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) began working with a patient with a cochlear implant who was suffering from tinnitus. Traditional treatment approaches were attempted, but failed to provide relief. They then applied a pitch-matched amplitude modulated sound, at a comfortable loudness via the patient’s cochlear implant  and discovered that this relieved the patient’s tinnitus–for the first time in two years, all he heard was a calming, pleasant tone produced by the low-rate stimulus. Transferring this technology from a cochlear implant to sounds anyone could hear led to the creation of S-Tones®, the foundation of the SoundCure Serenade® technology.
