Popular Resound Hearing Aid Models
ReSound launched the world's first made-for-iPhone hearing aids in 2014, changing almost overnight the way people think about and use hearing aids. Thanks to this groundbreaking launch, and ReSound's collection of 2.4 GHz wireless accessories, hearing aids suddenly became a convenient, practical, and downright desirable consumer electronics gadget instead of what many people previously saw as strictly a medical necessity. Taking the transformation even farther, ReSound's comprehensive and user-friendly mobile device apps have stood at the forefront of personalized hearing care, offering location-based adjustment, remote fine-tuning by your hearing care professional, and customized soothing sounds for tinnitus relief. It should go without saying that the design, fit and finish, reliability, and sound quality of ReSound hearing aids are also excellent.
LiNX Quattro and Enzo Q represent ReSound’s flagship hearing solutions, and choosing between them is relatively straightforward. ENZO Q is the best choice for severe-to-profound hearing loss while LiNX Quattro is ideal for everything else. While ENZO comes only in a BTE style, LiNX Quattro comes in several styles from an invisible in-canal to modern behind-the-ear, and everything in between and can handle a range of hearing loss from mild to severe. Consider the popular RIC style - or RIE (receiver-in-ear) as ReSound calls it - or the unique Mic-In-Helix design. LiNX and ENZO hearing aids come in three performance levels: 5, 7, and 9, where level 9 offers the most advanced features.

Otherwise, feel free to review the popular models below, and at the top of this page you'll find links to each ReSound hearing aid model, along with prices, features, and online ratings, and more in-depth ReSound reviews on each product page.
The original ReSound LiNX hearing aids were immensely popular, so it's not surprising that competitors rushed to follow suite by launching their own own wireless hearing aids. ReSound, meanwhile didn't rest on its laurels or wait for the competition to catch up. Instead, the company created a second, third, and now fourth generation of LiNX hearing aids—each one better than the previous.
As of September 2019, ReSound LiNX Quattro can even connect to some Android-based phones, like the Google Pixel 3, thanks to a new Bluetooth low energy protocol developed as a collaboration between Google and ReSound. This new protocol, called ASHA (Audio Streaming for Hearing Aids), will eventually allow ReSound hearing aids to connect directly to many Android devices with no intermediary devices.
LiNX Quattro hearing aids have kept everything great about LiNX 3D and added several enhancements—all designed to create a brilliant sound experience. ReSound promises clearer, fuller sound with LiNX Quattro for a richer listening experience. The LiNX Quattro also delivers improved wireless connectivity and longer battery life.
The LiNX 3D product line already offered a fantastic user experience with a class-leading ecosystem of apps and wireless accessories. These hearing aids didn't need much of a makeover, but ReSound has done it anyway, making significant improvements in the just right areas to bring you the ReSound LiNX Quattro.
From bustling streets to busy restaurants, follow conversations and still hear the other sounds going on around you. ReSound's new technology is designed to make it easier for listeners to focus on speech in noisy environments. With LiNX Quattro, low and high-pitched sounds are fuller and more natural. Quiet situations are truly quiet and louder sounds are comfortable, crisp and distortion-free. Children's laughter and the high notes and deep tones in music, are now fuller and more enjoyable.
A new more powerful and more efficient processing platform lies at the heart LiNX Quattro. ReSound explains that the new platform delivers twice the memory, 100% more speed, and 30% more computational power. One result of the changes is a larger dynamic range and wider frequency response than previous models. This translates to more nuanced sound with increased clarity, especially for soft sounds, music, and speech in noise.
Now you can Immerse yourself in full-quality stereo streaming from your mobile phone, TV and other audio sources without draining your batteries in double-time. A new power-saving wireless radio gives LiNX Quattro a boost in signal strength while reducing power consumption by 20%. The hearing aids are compatible with ReSound's entire ecosystem of wireless accessories.
- You want made-for-iPhone hearing aids with reliable, premium-quality audio streaming and an advanced rechargeable solution.
- Other hearing aids you have tried sound too noisy, even in a quiet environment.
- You're looking for a complete ecosystem of fully-featured apps and easy-to-use wireless accessories.
Enzo Q is available in a high power size 13 battery BTE unit, or a super power size 675 battery BTE, in up to 13 different colors.
There are a few reasons to consider Enzo Q hearing aids:
Direct connectivity: Enzo Q hearing aids can stream audio directly from iOS and some *Android devices. Whether it's talking on the phone, watching TV, or listening to music, streaming to Enzo Q hearing aids is as simple as using wireless stereo headphones.We can't think of anyone with hearing aids that would not appreciate this functionality, because every word counts when you really want to hear and understand. Every bit of hearing counts too, so if you want to make the most of yours while using a mobile phone, there is no better way to do it than with direct audio streaming and a video call to let you see the other person’s face while you talk. Hearing aids like Enzo Q are perfect for this. Direct audio streaming isn't just a neat feature. Research shows that when streaming to their hearing aids, users can understand 50% more of the conversation on average, compared to a regular phone call. *Full streaming compatibility with Android devices requires minimum Android v10 and Bluetooth 5.0 and that functionality has been enabled by the phone manufacturer and service carrier. ReSound cannot guarantee full compatibility with all Android devices.
Improvement in hearing in noisy environments: Some high-powered hearing aids include a lot of power and not a lot of anything else. For example, ENZO Q includes Binaural Directionality III. This sophisticated audio processing relies on the wireless connection, which most high-powered hearing aids don’t have, between the right and left hearing aids. This enables more effective noise reduction and speech enhancement than possible with hearing aids that lack ear-to-ear connectivity. ReSound boasts that Enzo Q provides a 60% improvement in recognizing speech from in front in noisy environments.
Compatibility with Cochlear™ implants: People with a cochlear implant on one ear may experience great benefits with a hearing aid fitted on the opposite ear. The Cochlear™ implant and the ReSound Enzo Q hearing aids create a complementary bimodal solution that may improve speech recognition in noise and sound source localization, while providing superior sound quality, among other benefits, compared with using a cochlear implant alone.
- You have severe-to-profound hearing loss and want to enjoy seamless mobile connectivity and a range of easy-to-use wireless accessories.
- You want high-powered hearing aids with advanced features – not just one or the other – all in an elegant and compact package
- You intend to wear the hearing aid in one ear to complement a Cochlear™ Implant in the other ear.

Any time you read a customer review on ReSound hearing aids, its important to note that a significant factor contributing to the customer`s review is the skill of the hearing provider who fit their hearing aids.

I considered my word recognition ability to be beyond improvement because I have been to a number of audiologists that said they couldn’t help me. While I will never have full word recognition I can honestly say that Resound aids are the best I’ve tried in the past 10 yrs. Their app is easy to use with the aids and the key is to have an experienced provider that can give you a base setting that minimizes the need to manipulate the app features. Mine has done that.

Amazing! Excellent sound quality and range! I call these my “bat ears”. I no longer have to turn up TV or ask “what” repeatedly. I can hear on the phone and around the pool. The Bluetooth functionality is also amazing and convenient. Love the charging convenience and not having to remember batteries or worry about running out. I am so thrilled to have gotten these!

Doesn't help much to stop wind noise. Can still hear the ringing in ears.
Fit is very good, confortable, and light weight.
Sometimes the charger doesn't fully charge the units.
Easy to keep clean. Charger is small and easy to transport.
The iphone app allows me to make necessary changes easily. Not easy to adjust units without app.

I've been wearing the ReSound LiNX Quattro 9 Rechargeable for approximately 2 weeks.
This is my first hearing aid, but I did have a 2 week trial of the Widex 440 F2 prior to purchasing the ReSound.
The ReSound is easy to insert and remove; I've had no difficulties with that aspect of the product at all.
I have worn it continuously for up to 18 hours. I find it to be very comfortable; there have been several times I've forgotten that I had them on.
They charge quickly and hold charge well so far. Streaming audio with Bluetooth does indeed impact charge longevity. I haven't yet done a lot of experimenting with how quickly streaming depletes the charge.
I have an phome running Android 9 so I have to use the Clip device for streaming. I expect the phone will update to Android 10 in early 2020, making the Clip unnecessary.
So far, I am very pleased with the sound quality. We are still in the process of tuning the device to match my needs, so it will only get better.
I think the device may need some work on streaming performance. I occasionally experience 1 second dropouts on either side from time to time when listening to music or audiobooks. Other devices connected to my phone via Bluetooth do not exhibit these dropouts so I know it its the hearing aids. These is nothing unusual going on when those dropouts occur (not low on charge, no interference from nearby Bluetooth devices, the Clip is with definitely within range, etc.).
Streaming sound is not as good as I expected, but I think I know why:
My hearing needs a boost on the higher frequency ranges, so when streaming plays, that is what the hearing aids do. During normal (i.e. non-streaming) use, the hearing aids provide a higher frequencies supplement to the lower frequencies from my normal hearing. Streaming therefore sounds different because I'm not getting the low frequencies anymore; the hearing aids are acting like hearing aids, not ear buds or headphones.
So, it would be nice if when the device is being used in streaming mode, that the frequency range could be expanded to make it sound more like an ear buds or headphones.
I'll have to talk to my hearing professional and/or ReSound to see if this is possible.
Overall, I like the product. It definitely improves my quality of life which is my primary objective.

This review is for Linx Quattro owners who experience cycling of the sound level. I got my Quattros in Dec 2018 and was disappointed as my results were less than my previous Resound Alera. The noise suppression cycled such that my hearing of rustling leaves, running water, general light sounds came in and out. Also, in restaurant program, I could hear sounds behind me clear than those in front. It took months for me to understand exactly what was happening in many situations and explain it to my audiologist. She returned them to Resound and after checking, they replaced both of them. What a difference. I now have tremendous hearing in all environments. If you are not hearing what you expected to hear, stay at it and don’t overlook that they may be defective. I give four stars instead of five because they allowed defective units to go out there. IfI had not been a user for some time, I would just have given up on hearing aides as many folks do.

Sound quaility is ok, but will require more adjustments. Take awhile to get used to having something in your ear. Had to get a custom fit for one ear as it was causing discomfort. Small issue with pairing the hearing aid to the phone app. in that it may drop out and/or show that hearing aid is not connected to phone, but actually is.

I recently purchased the resound hearing aides. I previously had phonack. I was happy with my previous pair but wanted a second pair. I have been wearing the resound now for about a and I hear people’s voices much clearer . I’m hearing music much clearer. The blue tooth is not as good as the phonak. The app with the resound is much easier to use. The audiologist zip hooked me up with is professional and excellent. This pair are a little more expensive then the previous on line company but worth the extra money.( I did not have problem with other company but working with Zip is a pleasure)

I first tried the Resound Quattro 5 hearing aids and the sound was good with them. I felt like the road/tire noise in the car was a bit disturbing and noises around me in busy places, like social events and restaurants, were annoying even though I used the restaurant program. I found that I used the "noise filter" very frequently. My main reason for getting hearing aids now, since I only have mild to moderate hearing loss, was because of my tinnitus. I was hoping for some relief from the tinnitus. I am disappointed that the tinnitus is still the same. I just got the Resound Quattro 7 hearing aids about a week ago and am now trying them. Initially, when I first put them on, I had the sensation that the sounds around me were a bit more "natural" sounding. And, the road/tire noise is fine now with these. I think that the noisy social situation and restaurant noise is better with the Quattro 7. I have a busy life style with lots of social situations, thus we decided to try the Quattro 7. So far, as a hear aid in general, it seems good. But, once again, no real help with the tinnitus for me. I am trying the built in tinnitus program now, but I find the white noise a bit annoying to listen to, so I don't think the program is that useful. Thus, I'm not sure if I will be keeping the hearing aids at this point. I really don't have much hearing loss at this point, and I was mainly trying them for help with my tinnitus.

Sound quality of the Linx Quattro 7 hearing aids from GN Resound that I recently purchased it excellent.
It was nothing short of amazing to hear again the high frequency sounds I'd been missing for years and conversations were wonderfully crisp again.
Music was also a big win, it's so nice to finally hear the full range of all the types of music I listen to.
The aids are extremely comfortable, I often forget I even have them on, and they're virtually invisible so people don't even know I'm wearing them.
After the first month of using them, they seem quite durable and I expect to get years of use out of them with no issues.
The pros are numerous:
-Excellent clarity of sound
-Superb discrimination of conversations in noisy crowded restaurants and at house parties.
-Fascinating pickup of front and rear conversations when in noisy locations.
-So lightweight and comfortable I barely notice wearing them.
-Small size and fit makes them essentially invisible.
-With the return of normal sounds, I find my serious tinnitus is now masked dramatically and don't notice it during the day as I did before using them. That was an unexpected major benefit as it's been getting much worse over the last few years and was starting to interfere with hearing normal conversations.
Only con so far has been the quality of streaming music through them, but that's due to the open cone type of fitting I have on the receivers. If I lightly block my ear openings with my fingers, I can hear the full range of music and the bass is very good, but with the open cone and not blocking my ears, I lose most of the bass so I probably won't be streaming music with them. They are fine for talking on the phone, so I'll continue to do that. To me, it's not a big deal if I can't stream music with them.
All in all, I couldn't be happier and would highly recommend them even though they are a bit more expensive than other brands. As a first time user of hearing aids, I was afraid I'd be disappointed and wouldn't want to use them if the quality wasn't top notch, but they far exceeded what I thought they would sound like and plan on sticking with this brand.

I am in the process of continuing typical early adjustments, but so far so good. With regard to comfort, they are very comfortable. My hearing specialist along with Ziphearing have changed the wire length which is addressing movement of the aid behind my ear. Quality of sound is very good generally, we are working to address clarity while using the TV streaming program, for both TV and environmental sounds. I particularly like being able to adjust treble, medium and bass tones in all programs. Great improvement over prior model. The noise reduction setting in restaurant mode works well to isolate table conversation for better clarity. I can also use the the function of making my phone work like a microphone in restaurant if needed. Haven’t tried it yet, but sure like the idea of it. Will be attending some musical theater shows in a large venue soon so am will be able to asses how they work in that setting. More models need to be equipped with coil!! Also, why is there not more availability of both battery or recharge in all models? Need to be able tot the model wanted in either. So far I am happy with my Resound Lynx Quattro 9. Love Ziphearing too!

Resound hearing aid apps & accessories
Have you ever thought about controlling your hearing aids from your smartphone? If so, check out some of the Resound apps below. Be sure to check compatibility of these apps with your phone or tablet, because some apps are built exclusively for iOS devices, others for Android devices, and the functionality that you get from these apps may vary depending on the type of phone or tablet you use.
