ReSound One RIC Microphones
The ReSound One introduces M&RIE (Microphone and Receiver in the Ear) technology to the market. M&RIE places an additional (3rd) microphone discreetly placed inside the ear canal. Normally with Receiver in the canal technology you have the speaker (receiver) in the ear canal and the microphones on the hearing device above the ear. This 3rd in the ear microphone is responsible for collecting sound right inside the ear canal and uses the unique shape of the outer ear for a more individualized and natural hearing sound experience.
All Access Directionality – Automatically adjusts how the microphones operate depending on the listening environment.
Ultra Focus uses all 6 microphones of the hearing aids to focus on the speech in front of the patient while ignoring sound from the sides. It can be easily activated by the user and aims to prioritise 1 on 1 speech in the noisiest environments.
