ReSound LiNX 3D™ Leads Industry to a New Era of Hearing Care

COPENHAGEN, Denmark–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GN Hearing today conducted the world’s first transatlantic remote fine
tuning of a hearing aid in front of a live audience during GN Hearing’s
investor/analyst meeting at the AudiologyNow! 2017 conference in
Indianapolis, USA.

The remote fine tuning of a ReSound LiNX 3D was conducted by GN
Hearing Vice President of Medical Affairs Dave Fabry and Senior
Audiologist Steve Hallenbeck for Karsten Videbæk, a 47-year-old ReSound
LiNX 3D wearer based in Denmark.

The live demonstration follows the announcement
of ReSound LiNX 3D
, GN Hearing’s 5th generation 2.4 GHz wireless
technology hearing aids, the unveiling of the new ReSound Smart 3D
the company’s intuitive and convenient ReSound Smart Fit™
software, and remote fine tuning with ReSound Assist. These components
together create a new cloud based eco-system that provides a ground
breaking hearing care experience enabling users to hear more wherever
they are.

program to his hearing aid settings through the remote fine tuning
feature of the ReSound Smart 3D app. After receiving the request,
Hallenbeck made the adjustment and sent a software update to Videbæk’s
smartphone via a secure cloud connection in the span of a few minutes.

aids, all wireless accessories, and smartphone apps. The introduction of
