GN ReSound - LiNX QUATTRO
Product Code: 7-R
Price: $2495.00 (single aid only)
The LiNX QUATTRO 7 is the world's first Made for iPhone hearing aid. It is manufactured by GN ReSound and incorporates their very latest processing chip which is of a dual-core platform (SmartRange). The dual-core platform dedicates one processor to wireless functionality and the other to sound processing. The benefits of this is twice the processing power than all previous processing chips manufactured by GN ReSound and quicker computing of digital algorithms without additional battery consumption.
It has 17 WARP channels which mimic and replicate the number of frequency bands in the human organ of hearing (cochlea), considerable noise reduction using their latest algorithm (Noise Tracker II), moderate expansion and moderate wind noise reduction.
In addition, the LiNX QUATTRO 7 incorporates Binaural Fusion technology which allows both hearing aids to act as one system through wireless of exchange information via 2.4 GHz technology. Using this technology the two hearing aids can decide together to gradually and seamlessly switch focus between picking up sounds from all around you when in quiet and in front of you when in background noise to highlight speech (Synchronised SoftSwitching).
Furthermore, Binaural Fusion supports the synchronization of volume adjustments and program changes made on one hearing aid to both hearing aids. It also allows for a feature called ?Comfort Phone?. This is when the telephone ear hearing aid automatically changes to a dedicated phone program whilst the non-telephone ear hearing aid reduces in volume slightly to help you concentrate better whilst still being aware of your environment. In addition this technology allows for a feature called Synchronized Acceptance Manager which gradually, through coordination between hearing aids, increases the sound level over a specified period of time to allow new users of hearing aids the opportunity to adjust and adapt.
The LiNX QUATTRO 7 can also analyse and classify 7 listening environment before automatically adjusting the sound level based on that environment to promote better hearing and listening comfort (Environmental Optimiser). The sound level applied automatically per environment can be adjusted and personalised for the wearer. This is assisted by Datalogging which keeps track any manual volume changes made by the wearer in each environment.
The QUATTRO 7 additionally mimics how the real-ear picks up certain frequencies of sound from all around you and others directly in front of you to provide the wearer with better sound quality, better hearing in noise and spatial (3D) awareness of your listening environment (Directional Mix). In addition, the QUATTRO 7 has MultiScope Adaptive Directionality whereby the hearing aid can be programmed to either automatically project a narrow or wide focus depending on whether you are speaking to one or several people in background noise. Furthermore, one hearing aid can be programmed to always pick up sounds in front of you (focus ear) and the other from all around you (monitor ear) to assist the wearer concentrate on a speaker whilst still being aware of their environment (Natural Directionality II).
The QUATTRO 7 also incorporates the industry's leading feedback algorithm (DFS Ultra II with Music Mode). This not only helps to reduce annoying whistling from your hearing aids but also preserves the sound quality of music which can sometimes be affected by feedback algorithms. The LiNX2 7 is also compatible with GN ReSound's unique 2.4 GHz wireless accessories such as Unite Mini Microphone, Unite TV Streamer 2, Unite Phone Clip+ and Unite Remote Control 2.
Being Made for iPhone the QUATTRO 7 can connect directly iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices without any intermediate devices using 2.4 GHz wireless technology. As a result, this converts the QUATTRO 7 into wireless stereo headphones so wearers can hear phone conversation and music directly in their hearing aids whilst also providing the wearer with endless benefits and possibilities through the use of Apple Apps and their range of devices. In addition, with a simple Triple Click of the iPhone?s home button it turns the iPhone into a remote microphone, similar to the Unite Mini Microphone. Using this feature, the iPhone can be positioned next to a particular speaker when in a group, given to somebody at the back of the car, or even placed in front of the TV to allow for direct streaming of speech and sound into your hearing aids. Furthermore, the ReSound Smart App, which is available for free download from the Apple App Store, turns the iPhone into a remote control. This allows for volume adjustments, bass/treble tuning, program change and hearing aid mute function to be directly activated via your iPhone or iPad. In addition, it enables the wearer to check the battery status and even find their LiNX QUATTRO 7 hearing aids if they have misplaced/lost it via Geo-tag. Geo-tag also allows wearers to add and save locations when they have made sound quality adjustments and be prompted to use these settings the next time they revisit that location.
