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.
Step 1: Obtain the receiver that you would like to use with the ReSound LiNX RIE hearing instrument.
Step 2: Confirm that you have a blue mandrel pin tool.

Receiver Connection Tip: Make sure that you have the receiver completely inserted into the hearing instrument. If your receiver is not properly in place, there may be no sound out of the hearing instrument. Below are images of improper and properly seated receivers.
Note: If you do not have the receiver placed appropriately, not only will there be no sound out of the hearing instrument, but you will get an error message during calibration. If this message is seen, first check your receiver placement as it is a common cause for this error message.
