The future of hearing aid technology delivers brilliant sound with unprecedented Layers of Sound and great connectivity, enabling users to hear more, do more and be more. GN Hearing is proud to bring this reality to audiologists attending the 63rd International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians (EUHA) in Hannover, Germany. At the congress, GN Hearing will demonstrate important developments in hearing care with the recent launch of the world’s first Premium-Plus hearing aid, ReSound LiNX Quattro™, and an industry first partnership with Google.
Powered by new technology, ReSound LiNX Quattro is the world’s most advanced rechargeable hearing solution, offering a brilliant sound experience with unprecedented Layers of Sound. In a direct comparison, where hearing aid users were asked to listen to music and rate the sound, the ultimate test of sound quality, 95% of respondents preferred ReSound LiNX Quattro compared to other premium hearing aids.1
“When I tried ReSound LiNX Quattro I got a more complete auditory environment. It started sounding like music. It is pretty impressive as I’ve not experienced this with my previous hearing aids,” says Andrew Hugill, Professor of Music, composer and musicologist, and currently Professor of Creative Computing at University of Leicester, who stopped playing live music after being diagnosed with Ménière’s disease.
A new high-performing chip platform drives the extensive sound quality improvements, providing 100% faster processing, twice the memory capacity and 35% increase in frequency bandwidth compared to ReSound LiNX 3D™. With a bandwidth of up to 9.5 kHz, a greater range of high-frequency sounds is accessible to people with hearing loss. An input dynamic range of 116 dB SPL, the highest in the industry, ensures that softer sounds are clearer and louder sounds are distortion free.
GN Hearing’s recently-announced partnership with Google means it will be the first company to offer a full spectrum of direct streaming from Android devices to hearing aids. This will allow more people to call friends, enjoy music and have brilliant sound experiences. It continues GN Hearing’s record of industry breakthroughs, including 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity, Binaural Directionality, direct full streaming compatibility with Apple devices and cloud based remote fine-tuning.
“With the launch of ReSound LiNX Quattro as well as other major technology launches and partnerships, GN Hearing is continuing to shape the future of hearing care. We want to help people hear more, do more and be more than they ever thought possible. We are striving to support people living with hearing loss and hearing care professionals alike access the latest technology and support the provision of high-quality care,” says Anders Hedegaard, CEO and President, GN Hearing.
GN Hearing has also recently launched Beltone Amaze™, the world’s most complete hearing solution that combines great sound quality, connectivity, rechargeability and remote fine-tuning, and Interton Ready™, which offers great sound, ease-of-use and connectivity at an affordable price.
ReSound LiNX Quattro, Beltone Amaze and Interton Ready are being launched worldwide from August 2018 and onwards.
