The LiNX2 7 is ReSound's new mid range Made For iPhone hearing aid family. As with other members of the Linx2 it uses the latest version of ReSound’s dual-core Coyote 4.5 processing chip . As we have said elsewhere, this allows Resound to use one processor on the chip to deal with the sound processing and the other to manage the entire wireless functionality.
This gives the LiNX2 7 twice the processing power of the previous generation of chips. This strategy has also allowed then to ensure that there is no additional battery consumption. The original LiNX was available only in behind the ear models, the Linx2 range is a full family with the full range of styles that you would normally expect from GN Resound.
Even though this is a mid range device it is well appointed, Resound have retained many of the fantastic features that are on the top of the range devices. They have also retained seventeen channels on the 7, delivering excellent customisation opportunities for even difficult hearing losses.
The LiNX2 7 comes in a variety of styles, as pictured above. Starting from left to right we have;
wireless Made for iPhone (in-the-canal)
wireless Made for iPhone (in-the-ear) with telecoil
non-wireless (small microphone-in-helix)
wireless Made for iPhone (microphone-in-helix) with telecoil
wireless Made for iPhone (receiver-in-ear) with push button
wireless Made for iPhone (receiver-in-ear) with volume control and telecoil
wireless Made for iPhone (sound-tube BTE or standard BTE) with push button, volume control and telecoil
wireless high-power Made for iPhone (standard BTE) with push button, volume control and telecoil
As with the other Linx2 devices the LiNX2 7 is compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and the new Apple Watch, using their Smart app which you can download. This means you can stream stereo sound directly to your hearing aids as if you were wearing wireless headphones. You can access voice calls, FaceTime, music, movies, spoken directions, information and any other audio from your iPhone/iPad. The LiNX 7 will also connect to some Android phones and tablets, and the Smart app is also available on the Google Play Store.
Again, the real beauty here is that you can connect directly from your device to the hearing aid without using any intermediary devices. However, just like the rest of the LiNX2 range they are also compatible with the whole range of ReSound Unite wireless accessories. You can discreetly adjust the volume, bass or treble using the app whilst the Geotag feature helps the aid to remember what settings you preferred for any particular location. The aids will then work in exactly the same way the next time you visit that area. You can even use the app to help find your LiNX2 7 hearing aids if you misplace them.

If you have a pair, the hearing aids will work together to analyze the listening environment and automatically adjust volume and noise reduction settings so that you will hear comfortably even when moving through varying sound environments.
This improves your comfort in noisy situations without making it harder to understand speech.
If there are high frequency sounds that you can no longer hear due to cochlear dead regions they can be shifted down the frequency spectrum to a range where you can hear. This improves the how well you hear important speech cues that would otherwise have been lost.
Music Mode gives you a clearer, richer, distortion-free music experience.
