GN ReSound announces ReSound LiNX™, an entirely new premium hearing aid, taking Surround Sound by ReSound™ to a new level and further expanding its lead in connectivity. GN ReSound’s third generation 2.4 GHz wireless technology is based on the new smartRange™ chipset.

With ReSound LiNX™, hearing impaired people will be able to stream music and phone calls directly from an Apple iPhone to their hearing aids. The streaming is possible without any intermediary body worn device.

It will be made available in a limited release later this year, followed by a global launch during the first quarter of 2014. Under the Beltone brand the equivalent Beltone First™ will be launched following the same release pattern.
