ReSound LiNX Quattro 5 Rechargeable Hearing Aids
The 2019 release of the ReSound LiNX Quattro 5 is a great performer for a value price. The ReSound LiNX Quattro 5 is a rechargeable Lithium-ion Receiver-In-The-Ear (RIE) hearing aid.

The Best Rechargeable Hearing Aid
ReSound’s LiNX Quattro 5 rechargeable hearing aids aims for a better longer lasting battery over other rechargeable hearing aid technology on the market. The ReSound LiNX Quattro 5 uses a lithium-ion rechargeable battery for quicker charging and better reliability. The unique charging case that comes with the hearing aids doubles as an on the go travel case. The ReSound rechargeable travel case is considered to be one of the best on the market. With a quick 30-minute charge, the hearing aids can last an additional 8 hours. With a 3 hour charge, the hearing aids are at full charge and can last as long as 30 hours. Additionally, the travel charger itself holds up to an additional 3 full charges. Giving the potential to allow a user to wear their hearing aids for 120 hours without having to plug the charger into a power source. This is a very nice feature for those who want rechargeability, but didn’t want to sacrifice convenience.

Made for iPhone Hearing Aid
ReSound LiNX Quattro 5 is a “Made-for-iPhone” hearing aid. This means these hearing aids can directly stream phone calls, music, and other audio directly from an iPhone to the hearing aids.
Hearing Aid Streaming from Android
The ReSound LiNX Quattro 5 direct streaming capabilities are currently limited to the iPhone. This allows users to stream directly from their iPhone to the hearing aids without any intermediary devices or streamers.
Android users that want the ability to directly stream from their phones to the ReSound LiNX Quattro 5 hearing aids will need to purchase a hearing aid streaming accessory called the ReSound Phone Clip+. This device works by pairing via Bluetooth to your phone and clipping on the user’s clothing. The audio from the phone is streamed into the ReSound Phone Clip+ and then relayed into the hearing aids.
Using streaming accessories has its advantages. With the direct streaming scenario, you still have to talk into the phone so the other party on the call can hear you. If you desire a truly hands-free experience, using the ReSound Phone Clip+ is a must. This accessory eliminates the need to have to talk directly into the phone. As long as the phone is within 30 feet, you can answer phone calls and stream audio.
ReSound Unite Accessories
ReSound developed a whole suite of accessories to help individuals hear better hearing in most environments. With the ReSound Unite Accessories, we have devices to connect audio from devices such as smartphones and TV’s.
Micro Mic and Multi Mic are two seperate remote microphone accessories that are used to capture conversations in loud environments or at a distance. Both microphones stream amplified speech sounds wirelessly to your ReSound hearing aids. Micro Mic works by clipping on clothing or by being placed near someone you want to hear. It picks up the voice and delivers sounds up to 80 feet away directly into the hearing aids. Multi Mic is a table microphone that requires an FM receiver. These are useful in a variety of environments, from business meetings to classroom settings.
TV Streamer 2 connects to your ReSound LiNX hearing aids to your home entertainment systems, delivering crystal clear sound from your TV, computer, or stereo. TV Streamer 2 uses Bluetooth technology to deliver the wireless audio directly to your hearing aids.
Remote Control 2 is ReSounds remote control for their hearing aids. The Remote Control 2 allows volume control and program changes. This is handy for individuals that don’t use a smartphone and need a convenient way to control their hearing aids.
Phone Clip+ is the streaming accessory for phones that have Bluetooth. This is a must have device for any Android smartphone users that want to be able to stream audio from their phone directly in the hearing aids. The Phone Clip+ is clipped on a users clothing and paired with a phone. This is the a great device if your looking for a true hands free experience while taking a phone call.
ReSound LiNX Quattro hearing aids have a unique feature within the ReSound Smart 3D app that allows a HearSource hearing professional to remotely program your hearing aids. Through the smartphone app, users can ask for assistance and communicate any issues they’re having with their hearing aids. Once the hearing professional has reviewed the request, they can alter the hearing aid sound settings. The changes are then pushed as an update back to the hearing aid user through the app. This cutting edge technology allows users to receive help without having to make appointments and endure the expense of travel and time.
Improved Platform and Sound Quality
ReSound LiNX Quattro takes the LiNX’s already excellent sound quality to a whole new level. The hearing aid sound processor was completely redesigned from previous generations. These improvements allow the chip to processes data 100% faster than the previous generation while maximizing efficiency and overall audio quality. According to the Resound website, “sounds are fuller, clearer and richer than ever before.”
Tinnitus Management and Relief
With 80% of hearing loss cases existing alongside tinnitus (ringing or buzzing in the ears), the Quattro addresses this condition head on with Resound’s Relief feature. This sophisticated tinnitus management system masks the sounds of tinnitus and provides a collection of pre-programmed synthetic sounds to help desensitize the wearer..
