ReSound Microphone in Helix (MIH) – Using the shape of your ear to maximize how we hear.
The Resound MIH Hearing Aid is a small, battery-operated device developed several years ago, and remain the only one of its kind. The MIH style was designed to provide the most natural sound quality. It does this by using the ears natural shape to collect sound in the most efficient way. Through uniquely positioning the microphone in the helix, ReSound has been able to attain the following advantages:
With the microphone being placed outside of the hearing aid, the devices can be built smaller and reduces the risk of feedback
Both above allow for larger air vents, offering a more natural sound.
It also reduces the prevalence of wind noise significantly. This is a big improvement over other custom hearing aid product options.
