The last time I spoke about the mid range Made For iPhone hearing aids. This time I want to speak about the entry level hearing aid range. I say entry level, but don’t let that put you off. They are still highly functional hearing aids delivering massive benefit to people with hearing loss. The LiNX2 5 is ReSound’s entry level Made For iPhone aid and supersedes the LiNX 5. It uses the latest version of ReSound’s dual-core Coyote 4.5 processing . A dual core chip is actually made up of two separate processors (or computer brains).
This allows Resound to use one processor to deal with the sound processing and the other to manage the entire wireless functionality. This gives the LiNX2 5 twice the processing power of the previous generation of chips. However, they have made sure that there is no additional battery consumption. The original LiNX was available only in behind the ear models whereas the LiNX2 range is a full family with the full range of styles.

Made for iPhone / Made For Android
The LiNX2 5 is compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and the new Apple Watch, using their Smart app which you can download. This means you can stream stereo sound directly to your hearing aids as if you were wearing wireless headphones. You can access voice calls, FaceTime, music, movies, spoken directions, information and any other audio from your iPhone/iPad. The Smart app is also available for some Android phones and tablets, so you can still enjoy the full functionality of the hearing aids with an Android device.
Unlike many other hearing aids, this lets you connect directly from your device to the hearing aid without using intermediary devices, although they are also compatible with the whole range of ReSound Unite wireless accessories. You can discreetly adjust the volume, bass or treble using the app whilst Geotag helps the aid to remember what settings you preferred for any particular location so that you can set the aid to work in the same way next time you visit that area. You can even use the app to help find your LiNX2 5 hearing aids if you misplace them.
Hearing Aid Features
9 Warp Channels
Generally the more sound processing channels your hearing aid has, the more accurately it can be programmed for your hearing loss. The 5 has nine seperate sound processing channels.
Binaural Directionality II
Delivers impressive spatial awareness with top sound quality. As background noise levels rise, the hearing aids will zoom in on the sounds it considers to be more important, such as speech but without losing the sense of what is going on around you.
Noise Tracker II
This improves your comfort in noisy situations without making it harder to understand speech.
If there are high frequency sounds that you can no longer hear due to cochlear dead regions they can be shifted down the frequency spectrum to a range where you can hear. This improves the how well you hear important speech cues that would otherwise have been lost.
Music Mode gives you a clearer, richer, distortion-free music experience.
Tinnitus Sound Generator and Nature Sounds
Choose from tinnitus therapy sounds, new Nature Sounds, or your preferred sound streamed directly to your hearing aids. The ReSound Relief and ReSound Smart apps provide even more options for managing your tinnitus. This helps to break the “cycle” and provides relief from tinnitus by diverting attention away from it with a range of soothing background sounds.
The Linx2 range also connects to the complete Unite wireless range from ReSound
ReSound Unite wireless accessories
The easy-to-use ReSound Unite™ wireless hearing aid accessories deliver clear and secure audio directly to ReSound wireless hearing instruments, including our newest hearing aids, ReSound LiNX™. And they do it discreetly, without devices to wear around your neck. This is thanks to 2.4 GHz wireless technology, a robust and reliable standard, which gives you strong, clear and stable connections.
The Phone Clip+
The Phone Clip+ streams crystal clear phone calls and audio straight to your hearing aids. So you – and the person you’re talking to – can enjoy comfortable conversations, even in noisy places. This device doesn’t necessarily make sense for Made For iPhone users as they already have a good connection to their phone, however, it is a handy hands free device for the car.
ReSound Unite Mini Microphone
The ReSound Unite™ Mini Microphone is an extraordinarily versatile device that transmits speech directly to your hearing aids. It is a discreet clip-on microphone that helps you hear speech clearly. So you can enjoy one-on-one communication in difficult listening situations.
ReSound Unite Mini Microphone also functions as a personal, portable audio streamer to help you listen to your iPod or laptop. Or as a travel companion when you’re away from home – just place it front of the speakers of the TV to stream directly to your ears. This device is worth thinking about, it can really help you hear your companion in noisy situations, it is also an ideal tool for people who attend lectures.
ReSound Unite™ TV Streamer 2
The ReSound Unite™ TV Streamer 2 transforms your hearing aids into wireless headphones. It sends stereo sound directly from your TV, stereo or computer directly into your hearing aids from up to 23 feet away.
ReSound Unite™ Remote Control 2
With the ReSound Unite™ Remote Control 2 you’ll never lose track of your hearing aid settings. You can change programs and adjust the volume on each of your hearing aids. And the easy-to-see display clearly shows settings.
