I’m a new member of this forum, and have not seen any reviews as yet on the Linx. So this may be the first. I have using hearing aids for 8 years. The latest being a three generation old pare of Re-sound. With less than 24 hours experience the first impression of the new Linx is very positive. First, as general hearing aids, they are far superior to my previous pair. My wife has noticed I have not ask her to repeat herself since i’ve had them. However as of yet, I have not been experienced a wide range of noise situations.
The interface with my iPhone is impressive, however again, it has only been 24 hours, and perhaps 6 phone calls. Sound quality is excellent, and reports of my voice have been also excellent, even with the iPhone in my shirt pocket, under a sweater. Only issue is that there is a delay between the point of connecting with a call and the time the sound is heard in the hearing aids. Perhaps 3 seconds for one ear, and a couple more for the second.
The app does a good job of adjusting the volume, and tone. During a call the phone adjusts the volume of the call, and the app adjust the ambient sound.
Tried out iTunes music and it was excellent.
This was the first units my audiologist paired, and it took a while, including a call to Re-Sound, but once that was accomplished, the hearing aids have paired, after each disconnect, without problems.
The “Place” function is geographical, using the iPhone location system to identify locations. I’m not sure of the benefit of this vs. using the old mode function, but we’ll see.
I have a follow-up visit with my audiologists on Monday, to do additional tweaking of the system.
At this point I think Re-Sound should consider a compressive user manual for the overall system.
I can see some potential improvements in the app, but all in all and am very very satisfied with them.
