resound linx 3DOur review of the Linx 3D 961 Receiver In Canal hearing aids:

Our initial reaction to the Gloss Black finish of these hearing aids from a look and feel perspective, was this was a nice looking hearing aid.  The casing of this hearing aid felt like a solidly built product that would last for years of regular use.

When we tested in our own ears, we use a flat, 40 dB hearing loss configuration using the NAL-NL2 fitting formula and medium power receivers with power domes for a snug fit.

Our initial experience, with respect to the sound quality, was good.  Most sounds were essentially normal for quiet environments, while noisy environments were noisy, without being overbearing.  Speech in noise perception was good in both quiet and noisy places.  Music listening over speakers was enjoyable, we were not able to test live music.

The ReSound Smart 3D app lets you control your hearing aids directly from your smartphone mobile device. You can change programs, and make simple or more advanced sound adjustments and save them as favorites. The app helps you learn what you can do and how to do it. It can even help you find your hearing aids if you lose them. Last, but not least, you can have your hearing care professional update your hearing aid programs and send you new hearing aid software without taking a trip to the clinic.  This ability to have your hearing aids remotely modified by the hearing care practitioner is a relatively new concept, and I am unsure if I like it or not, but it is interesting.

Resound claims that the Linx 3D is up to 50% better at identifying speech in noisy environments.  Modern hearing aids adapt their settings to the listener’s environment. Therefore it is critical that they can recognize different environments accurately. ReSound LiNX 3D recognizes speech-in-noise environments with up to 50%* greater accuracy than other premium hearing aids.
