ReSound LiNX iPhone Compatible Aid Available Now At London Hearing Aids
We are now booking in patients for demonstrations of the revolutionary ReSound LiNX 9 and ReSound LiNX 7. This new model range is a world first - the first "Made For iPhone" or MFi hearing aid. (See below for price)
It's Different To Everything That Has Come Before
Why is this model different? The ReSound LiNX can pair directly with the iPhone (4s or newer), and the new iPod touch and iPad. Previously, hearing aids from all manufacturers would need an intermediate device, worn either around the neck as a necklace, or clipped on to a lapel.
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
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.
