Tech Tip | ReSound LiNX Receiver Options and Insertion Tips

ReSound LiNX is truly a revolutionary product, offering numerous state-of-the-art features. The MFi (Made For iPhone) capabilities of these instruments are certainly at the forefront of technological progress. Additionally, ReSound LiNX offers connectivity to Unite Accessories, and has many advanced programming parameters. As a part of ReSound LiNX fitting flexibility, the 61 RIE offers four receiver options: smallest (S), normal power (NP), high power (HP) and now our new ultra power (UP) receiver. The addition of the UP receiver broadens the ReSound LiNX fitting range and further meets the needs of patients’ hearing losses. The UP receivers, encased in micro-molds, may be ordered by sending in ear impressions and using the ReSound micro-mold order form. During this month’s Tech Tip, we take a look at receiver options and how to perform a receiver change on the ReSound LiNX 61 RIE hearing instruments.
