GN Hearing announces the next generation of app-enabled hearing aid-- the ReSound LiNX 3D, a hearing aid complete with companion app for customisation and fine-tuning via iPhone and even Apple Watch.
The app allows users to ask their audiologist to remotely fine-tune the hearing aid without need for an appointment or traveling to the clinic, thanks to a cloud-based platform dubbed ReSound SmartFit. One can also share feedback on hearing difficulties as a situation occurs, and hearing care professionals can offer follow-up services remotely.
As for the actual hearing aid, the ReSound LiNX 3D carries 5th generation 2.4GHz wireless technology and 3rd generation binaural directionality for "clear, natural sound, exceptional speech understanding and the best sense of where sounds are coming from." GN Hearing adds the hearing aid handles both quiet and speech-only situations as well as areas with loud surrounding sound, and the aid optimises audibility of speaking voices.
