Absolutely! I highly recommend you obtain hearing aids that offer Bluetooth and telecoil technology. I have personally fit thousands of hearing aids with telecoils and worked with consumers around the country that have benefited from this feature. While hearing aids have come a long way in the last decade, they do not give you normal hearing and most users report that hearing over distance, in reverberation and background noise (such as houses of worship, meeting rooms, theaters, lecture halls, pharmacy service counters and ticket windows) is still...

It absolutely does, but requires the Phone Clip+. The Linx2 allows audio through the iPhone wirelessly, but still requires you to use the microphone of the iPhone. The Phone Clip+ becomes the microphone. It additionally allows you to make program changes, volume changes, mute functionality, and answering/rejecting an incoming phone call.
I am not familiar with the Cala - or any other Costco-brand hearing aids, but it's my understanding that many of the products being sold through Costco are "made-for-Costco" products, so they are not really the same exact products as those being manufactured and sold under the manufacturer label (in this case, Resound Linx 2 9).

To get them out of airplane mode, wait five minutes, then open and shut your battery doors again. You should hear the single beeps once again.

One of the biggest differences between LiNX 2 and LiNX 3D is the ability to receive help remotely from an audiologist via the ReSound Smart 3D app. Resound and Signia (with their Pure 13 BT) are the only two hearing aid manufacturers that have released products capable of being adjusted remotely. If you aren't interested in this functionality, you might consider saving a little money and purchasing the LiNX 2. Also, you may want to check out this white paper on Binaural Directionality III.

The LiNX 3D range features Tinnitus Sound Generator with nature sounds.The tinnitus feature is activated in the Resound Smart 3D app which is the latest version.You click the sound enhancer feature then hit the tinnitus manager button. You can then shape the response of the white noise to help mask your tinnitus & save this particular setting.If you desire you could have this mode activated when the aid detects it is in a particular location is the library.
