RESOUND QUATTRO — A HEARING EXPERIENCE BEYOND COMPARE. STYLISH & MODERN WITH BRILLIANT, LIFE-ENRICHING SOUND.
Denmark may not be the first country you would associate with quality tech, but when it comes to hearing aids, it’s like a proud Olympic specialist event that they all but dominate. You’d have to get up pretty early to beat them, and it’s almost irritating how good they are.
ReSound’s area of expertise is in sound-layering. Hopefully by now, anyone perusing all this info will start to form an appreciation of how varied hearing aid technology is. We understand how easy it is to think a hearing aid is just a hearing aid and they must all be pretty similar, much of a muchness, but this is so far from the truth and very closed-minded.
It took a designated course and seminar just to gauge the concept of how sound could be ostensibly layered within a pair of hearing aids. If you have little understanding of what makes up a product and how it thinks, how can any audiologist expect to professionally fit one? Hearing aid software is a challenge but also incredibly rewarding when you know how to unlock the potential of each patient’s hearing aid system. Once you figure out ReSound, you delve into a treasure chest of technology.
“Treasure chest” is a good analogy, as clients often describe the sound as being rich. If ReSound Lynx Quattros were a taste, it would probably be chocolate. This can only be achieved through layering, as the aids begin with low frequencies to give sound warmth, and build the sound on top, finishing with the high frequency, crisp sounds. If you think of a word being broken down into its makeup of vowels and consonants, you need to be able to hear them separately, but also at the same time.
ReSound achieve this particularly well, enabling the wearer to grasp a deeper comprehension of speech without realising it’s even happening.
Notice how this is not noise reduction? Cleverly, the Quattros are designed to strip out the noise and rebuild it with no distortion, whilst simultaneously layering speech on top. Sound distortion is one of the main reasons hearing aids can fail to provide clarity in a challenging environment.
By building layers of sound, you control distortion and clean up the audio. Then you can almost do what you want with it. This is not sound filtering, like other products on the market, but sound landscaping, where everything has its place. Yes, you may hear several voices in a restaurant at the same time, but at least you get to choose which one you want to focus your attention on. And change your mind partway through a conversation if you please.
This feature works tirelessly and is reliant on an insanely fast computer chip running the show.
Due to the crisp and distortion-free sounds, with ReSound LiNX Quattro, both low and high-pitched sounds are fuller and more natural. Quiet situations are truly quiet and louder sounds are comfortable, crisp and non-invasive. Children’s laughter and the high notes and deep tones in music are now fuller and more enjoyable. All this can seem a little unreal at first, like enhanced technicolour, but you’ll get used to it and never look back.
For music listening, ReSound LiNX Quattro is preferred 95% of the time, compared to many other premium hearing aids (according to their own study). It is actually very good, as sound layering is again employed to build a wall of sound and really flex the Quattro muscles. It really delivers on this, making use of the super-fast chip and puts smiles on faces.
Sound breeds emotion and music has such impact that you sometimes need a strong product to fully convey this effect. It performs just as well when listening acoustically or streaming from a phone.
With 100% more speed and twice the memory capacity, ReSound LiNX Quattro offers higher performance than ever before with reduced power consumption.
Quattros will pair to iPhones and Android phones, which makes them beautifully versatile. Even their in-ear, custom products can also do the same, so that’s a great USP to shout about. Their versatility here is really appreciated, as no real consideration needs to be made regarding the client’s choice of phone, because the aids will connect to either.
It’s far better when choosing a product for the client’s needs if decisions can be made purely based on the ideal sound quality and speech-processing ability. Bluetooth connectivity should not need to factor into this process.
Quattros will stream calls and media content, like music on iTunes or videos on YouTube, with excellent quality of sound. This is a great feature when wanting to pick up every detail of the music that you’re listening to, directly through the hearing aids. Compared to standard headphones, or earphones, the clarity will always be better when your hearing loss is taken into account first.
ReSound provides a wonderfully stylish charger with their Quattro range. It’s portable and well built, allowing for charging capability even when not connected to a wall socket. There are three additional charges from the case alone.
You get 23 hours worth of functionality from a three-hour charge, which is plenty to get you through each day.
