ReSound hearing aid technologies
ReSound was the first to deliver Made-for-iPhone hearing aids. The wireless hearing aids hastened the transformation of hearing aids from devices used mainly for amplification to consumer electronic products used for phone calls, music streaming and other forms of connectivity, communication and entertainment. Prior to its iPhone hearing aids, ReSound was a pioneer in 2.4 GHz wireless technology streaming solutions. Among other things, ReSound wireless accessories were the first to eliminate cumbersome "neck loops" that had been required to transmit audio signals to hearing aids.
Its latest chip platform, released in 2020, powers the high-end sound processing software in ReSound's premium One hearing aid family. Compared with ReSound's previous technology platform, the new “C6 Chip Platform” offers twice the memory and 50% more processing power. The platform delivers beamforming directionality, which enables improved speech understanding in background noise.

ReSound hearing aid models
ReSound makes premium hearing aids that are programmed by an audiologist or other hearing health professional based on the results of your hearing test.

Model styles range from custom invisible in-the-ear (ITE) to powerful behind-the-ear (BTE) solutions, with multiple levels of technology and features to accommodate users' individual needs. New ReSound hearing aids also offer multiple options utilizing lithium-ion rechargeable batteries. And ReSound control apps make it easy to change program settings on the fly.
Lineup of ReSound LiNX Quattro models
ReSound One hearing aids
ReSound One is GN Hearing’s latest flagship hearing aid. One shares many hardware and software features with the popular LiNX Quattro (released in 2018), and uses the same smartphone app (ReSound Smart 3D™) as previous generations of LiNX hearing aids. One appears to signal the end of line for the long-running LiNX series, which all started with the world's first Made-For-iPhone hearing aid back in 2013.
One inherits a very strong foundation from LiNX, and represents a radically new generation of hearing aids for ReSound, with the introduction of "Microphone & Receiver-In-Ear (M&RIE)", a pioneering technology that places a microphone in the ear to improve sound quality, localization, and wind noise. ReSound is also introducing binaural beamforming directionality ("Ultra Focus") in One.
As of the moment, there are three One models available, which are all receiver-in-canal (RIC) models. Two of the available models (61 an 62 DRW) rely on disposable batteries, with a telecoil included in the 62 model. The 61-DRWC comes with rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, but lacks a telecoil. ReSound states that One will run for up to 30 hours on a single 3-hour charge.
All One models offer direct wireless audio streaming from iOS and Android devices, and offer hands-free calling via the Phone Clip+ accessory. All models also offer best-in-class moisture and dust protection with IP68 ingress protection ratings. Remote programming is also available.
ReSound LiNX Quattro hearing aids
Of its previous flagship, ReSound said LiNX Quattro delivered its “most clear, natural, sound quality yet” (Of course, One holds the current title). They provide audio streaming from Apple iPhones, iPads, and iPods. Powered by ReSound's “Smart Hearing” sound processing platform technology, the hearing aids have an extended dynamic range and improved frequency response.
They also utilize a wireless radio featuring less lag time in streaming and stronger wireless signal strength for enhanced ear-to-ear performance and localization of sound (when compared to previous LiNX generations). A rechargeable option provides more than a full day of power, even when streaming phone calls, TV and music, with a portable charging case small enough to fit into a handbag or pocket.

Resound Enzo Q hearing aids
ReSound ENZO Q hearing aids are based on the same technology platform as the LiNX Quattro, and provide the same sophisticated sound processing. The ENZO line is specifically made for consumers with severe-to-profound hearing loss. ENZO utilizes Binaural Directionality III to improve spatial sense by helping users locate sound. It also provides very high levels of amplification without feedback.
ReSound legacy hearing aid models
ReSound continues to support earlier hearing-aid models based on previous generations of its sound-processing technology. Because these models still provide high-performance sound processing and functionality, some audiologist may still sell them at lower price points than the latest models.
Legacy models include LiNX 3D, LiNX 2, LiNX, Vea, Enya, Verso, Alera, Lex, Vea, Magna, Live, Dot2, Ziga, Essence, Pulse, x-plore, Be, and Match hearing aids.
