There are different methods of programming the ReSound LiNX 3D depending on the model. The ReSound Smart Fit cable guide describes the following methods.
- Mini RIE 61 Noahlink Wireless or Wired via CS44-Cable and CS53-Flexstrip
- Mini BTE 67 Noahlink Wireless or Wired via CS44-Cable and CS53-Flexstrip
- RIE 62 Noahlink Wireless or Wired via CS44-Cable and Programming Adaptor II
- Standard BTE 67 Noahlink Wireless or Wired via CS44-Cable and Programming Adaptor II
- Standard BTE 77 Noahlink Wireless or Wired via CS44-Cable and Programming Adaptor II
For both methods (wired and wireless programming) you will need the current version of SmartFit fitting software.
Note that Noahlink Wireless is the same as ReSound’s Airlink 2 device with a Firmware update to make the Airlink 2 equal to Noahlink Wireless. Note that I intentionally omitted these models (IIC (10A), ENZO 3D Power BTE 88, ENZO 3D High Power BTE 98) because I don’t want to describe how to program custom, or high power hearing aids. Note that I did not describe Programming Adaptor II because I don’t have these (boots/shoes) that are are difficult to obtain.

Connecting CS53-Flexstrip to CS44 cable
Pay attention to alignment when you connect the CS44 cables to the Flexstrip. The CS44 cable has a red dot that aligns with a red dot on the Flexstrip connector for visual alignment. There is also physical indentations that will only allow the cable to be connected in the correct orientation. Here’s some pictures to show the correct orientation.
See the same ReSound Smart Fit cable guide mentioned above for how to connect the CS53-Flexstrips to your ReSound LiNX 3D hearing aids.
