The Linx3D 7 is the second down from the top of the Linx3D range. Is this the right level for you or should you go for the premium Linx3D 9 or the mid-range Linx3D 5? Hopefully, this article will help you to decide by illustrating the differences.
Common features There are some features that are common to each of the hearing aids in the Linx3D range including what they look like, what accessories work with them and so on. To see this information please go to our general information page about the Linx3D range by clicking here.
Technical differences These are the main differences between the Linx 3D 7 and Linx 3D 9 so that you can see what features you are missing out on.
Binaural Directionality – this is the older version of the "Binaural directionality" feature, it is less good than the "Binaural directionality III" feature in the Linx 3D 9 in that whilst it still does a very good job at homing in on the sounds that you want, you don't get the same spatial awareness.
Spatial Sense – not present in the Linx 3D 7, this is connected to the line above.
Advanced Noise Tracker II – to improve comfort in noisy listening situations without affecting speech understanding. Not as good as the "Ultra" version in the Linx3D 9 but still pretty effective.
Environmental Optimiser – Similar to "Binaural Environmental Optimiser II" but again, the older and less efficient version that was in the previous Linx2 range.
Channels - 14 warp channels.
