ReSound LiNX Quattro™ offers a new category of hearing solution and
expands GN Hearing's product portfolio, which already includes the
premium ReSound LiNX 3D™ product family. Powered by new technology,
including a new chip platform, ReSound LiNX Quattro™ offers a
combination of unmatched sound quality and rechargeability, while
further expanding GN Hearing's leadership within 2.4 GHz connectivity
and remote fine-tuning:

  • Sound quality: A brilliant sound experience, with clearer,
    fuller and richer Layers of Sound™. With the highest input dynamic
    range available and extended high frequencies, sounds are processed in
    increased detail at all input levels, leading to superior sound
    quality where softer sounds are clearer and louder sounds are fuller
    and distortion-free.
  • Rechargeability: Longest rechargeable battery life available.
    Users benefit from an integrated Li-ion battery with 24 hours of use
    even when streaming 50% of the time.

Clearer, fuller and richer Layers of Sound™

With a new chip platform, a completely rewritten sound processing
package, a redesigned wireless radio with extra signal strength and a
unique utilization of microphones, sounds are passed to the amplifier
without being altered. The result is a brilliant experience with Layers
of Sound™ that is designed to inspire confidence in people with hearing
loss, so they can enjoy the moments that matter most. Compared to
ReSound LiNX 3D™, the new chip enables 100% faster processing, 100%
additional memory, 35% increase in frequency bandwidth, and the highest
input dynamic range in the industry.

ReSound LiNX Quattro™ introduces a new category of Premium-Plus hearing
solution for people who, in social and professional settings, desire
great speech intelligibility even in noisy situations and demand a
brilliant sound experience with access to Layers of Sound™. While the
primary goal of hearing aids is to hear and communicate with others, the
hearing aid's ability to faithfully reproduce music is the ultimate test
of sound quality: 95% of users prefer ReSound LiNX Quattro™ for music
listening compared to other premium hearing aids (Jespersen et al.,
2018).

With its 6th generation of 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity, GN
Hearing further expands its technology leadership within connectivity.
ReSound LiNX Quattro™ is the only solution to offer direct full
streaming to smartphones.

The world's most advanced rechargeable solution

ReSound LiNX Quattro™ is the smallest and longest lasting 2.4 GHz
integrated Li-ion rechargeable hearing aid on the market. It comes with
a compact portable charger that holds three extra charges and offers
quick charge. With 25% less power consumption when streaming, ReSound
LiNX Quattro™ is the only hearing aid that offers 24 hours of use even
when streaming 50% of the time and 30 hours of use on a fully charged
battery without streaming.

In addition to unparalleled sound quality and rechargeable technology,
ReSound LiNX Quattro™ features GN Hearing's unique remote fine-tuning
capabilities. GN Hearing continues to be the pioneer in the development
of remote fine-tuning for hearing aids, which features unique,
cloud-based technology. ReSound Assist™ connects hearing aid users with
their hearing care professionals via the ReSound Smart 3D™ app, allowing
remote adjustment of their hearing aids based on individual needs and
preferences leading to even better sound quality.

"ReSound LiNX Quattro™ is designed for people who want the best of
the best and want a brilliant sound experience with great speech
intelligibility even in noisy situations. The combination of
unprecedented sound quality with Layers of Sound™ and the longest
rechargeable battery life available puts ReSound LiNX Quattro™ in a
league of its own,
transforming the hearing experience for people
around the world"
, says Anders Hedegaard, CEO, GN Hearing.

ReSound LiNX Quattro™, and Beltone Amaze™, will be rolled out starting
end of August 2018. The hearing aid will be launched in the RIE
(Receiver in the Ear) form factor, with both a rechargeable and
replaceable battery solution, and will be offered in a new Premium-Plus
price point only.

The ReSound LiNX 3D™ product family, which was first launched in May
2017, continues to be available as a premium choice, with excellent
sound quality, efficient and convenient fitting as well as
groundbreaking remote fine-tuning. ReSound LiNX 3D™ is available in
virtually all major countries and will be launched in China later in
2018.
