The GN ReSound LiNX2 9 is a premium level hearing aid manufactured by GN ReSound. It follows and builds upon the hugely successful LiNX hearing aid range which were the world’s first ever Made for iPhone (MFi) hearing aids.

Available in the complete hearing aid style range, the LiNX2 9 unlike its predecessor also allows for direct connectivity with the Samsung Galaxy S4, S5, and S6, as well as incorporating ‘Smart Hearing’ technology within some of its custom in-the-ear models for the very first time. In addition, the LiNX2 9 includes new technology to enhance 3D hearing to allows listeners a better of sense of direction of sound in the real-world.


IMPORTANT: Hearing aids are medical devices that require the clinical expertise of an Audiologist or Hearing Aid Audiologist to perform a comprehensive hearing assessment and verification of fitting. This is to ensure the hearing aids have been correctly and optimally programmed to suit your individual hearing loss, ear acoustics and listening needs. Additionally, some of the technological features described may not be as effective or suitable depending upon the severity and nature of your hearing loss. A fully qualified and registered Audiologist or Hearing Aid Audiologist will be able to advise accordingly.

Technology

Level

Real-world benefit

Made for iPhone (MFi) Yes Streams audio directly from selected iPhones, iPods, and iPads into your hearing aids.
WARP Channels 17

The hearing aid ‘splits’ and ‘separates’ incoming sound into its different frequencies before processing each frequency channel independently based on the listening environment, listening needs and hearing loss of the individual. This helps provide a higher resolution and more natural sound quality.

The optimal number of WARP channels for GN ReSound hearing aids is 17 which are designed to mimic how the natural ear processes speech.

Gain Handles 17

This relates to the number of frequency channels that can be adjusted to personalise the hearing aid to your specific hearing loss, listening needs and ear acoustics to help provide a more natural and crisper sound quality.

Programmes 4

For a more personalised fitting the hearing aids can be adjusted and specifically programmed for different listening environments, such as music, outdoors, party, restaurant etc.

NoiseTracker™ II Strong

Reduces unwanted background noise in noisy situations to reduce listening effort and improve speech understanding.

Windguard™ Strong

Dampens wind noise when outdoors to reduce listening effort and improve speech understanding.

Binaural Directionality™ Yes

The two hearing aids work together to help the brain focus in on the person you want to hear in a noisy situation, whilst maintaining an overall awareness of your environment so you can switch focus to hear somebody else if required.

Binaural Directionality™ II with Spatial Sense™ Yes

The two hearing aids work together to help the brain focus in on the person you want to hear in a noisy situation, whilst maintaining an overall awareness of your environment so you can switch focus to hear somebody else if required.

In addition, the hearing aids exchange information to more accurately locate and separate different sounds in the environment to provide better spatial (3D) awareness.

Expansion Strong

Reduces unwanted and annoying low level background noises such as air cons, fans, the soft tapping of keyboards and computer mouse etc. without effecting speech understanding.

Environmental Optimiser™ Yes The volume level automatically adjusts across 7 different listening environments to ensure speech can be heard and background noise is always comfortable.
Environmental Optimiser™ II Yes

The volume and noise reduction level automatically adjusts across 7 different listening environments to ensure speech can be heard and background noise is always comfortable.

Binaural Environmental Optimiser™ II Yes

The two hearing aids automatically combine to more precisely adjust the volume and noise reduction level across 7 different listening environments to ensure speech can be heard and background noise is always comfortable.

Directional Mix Yes

Provides spatial (3D) awareness of your listening environment so you are aware of where sounds are coming from whilst also focusing on important speech sounds when in a noisy place.

Adjustable Directional Mix Yes

Can be personalised to provide improved spatial (3D) awareness of your listening environment so you are aware of where sounds are coming from whilst also focusing on important speech sounds when in a noisy place.

Sound Shaper Yes

Coverts and squashes high frequency sounds that cannot be heard by a listener due to their hearing loss into a lower frequency so they can be heard.

Low Frequency Boost Strong

An additional boost of low-frequency sound can be provided for a louder and fuller sound quality for people who have severe to profound hearing loss.

Softswitching™ No

Detects sounds from all around when in a quiet place before slowly switching focus to hear somebody in front of you when in a noisy place.

Synchronized Softswitching™ Yes

The two hearing aids combine to more accurately detect sounds from all around you when in a quiet place before slowly switching focus to hear somebody in front of you when in a noisy place.

Adaptive Directionality™ Yes

Detects sounds from all around when in a quiet place before quickly switching focus towards speech even if to the side or behind you when in a noisy place.

Multiscope Adaptive Directionality™ Yes

Detects sounds from all around when in a quiet place before quickly switching to a narrow focus towards speech even if to the side or behind you when in a noisy place.

Autoscope Adaptive Directionality™ Yes

Detects sounds from all around when in a quiet place before quickly switching to either a narrow or wide focus towards speech (depending if you are listening to one or several people at once) even if to the side or behind you when in a noisy place.

DFS Ultra™ II with Music Mode™ Strong

Eliminates unwanted whistling from the hearing aid whilst maintaining the sound quality of music, which can sometimes be distorted by this feature.

Tinnitus Sound Generator with Nature Sounds Yes

Helps the brain become distracted from tinnitus by instead listening to a selection of masking sounds including several soothing ocean-based nature sounds.

PhoneNow™ Yes

When the telephone is held beside the ear the hearing aid automatically switches to a dedicated phone programme to help you hear more.

Comfort Phone™ Yes

When the telephone is held beside the ear the hearing aid on the telephone ear automatically switches to a dedicated phone programme whilst the non-telephone ear hearing aid reduces in volume slightly to help you hear more whilst retaining a sense of your environment.

Acceptance Manager Yes

The hearing aid can gradually increase in volume over a specified period of time to help listeners gradually adapt and acclimatisation to wearing them.

Synchronized Acceptance Manager Yes

The hearing aids can gradually increase in volume over a specified period of time to help listeners gradually adapt and acclimatisation to wearing them. This gradually increase in volume is governed by the two hearing aids and can be halted if one hearing aid is not worn for any reason to allow both ears to adapt together.

Sound Enhancer Yes

The noise and wind-noise reduction level can be altered by the listener depending on the listening environment. In addition, the directional beam can be manually widened or narrowed depending upon whether the listener wants to focus on several or a single speaker when in background noise.
