RIE

Receiver-in-Ear

The main section of this hearing aid is hidden behind your ear. Unlike a standard BTE, the receiver has been removed from the housing and mounted externally in a tube fitted into the ear with a soft dome. You will therefore find that RIE hearing aids are usually smaller than standard BTE hearing aids.

MIH

Mic-in-Helix

MIH is a unique solution which only ReSound offers. MIH was designed to provide the most natural sound quality and collects sound in the most efficient ways using your own ears.

In MIH the microphone is taken out from the device giving several advantages:

  • The devices can be built much smaller
  • It’s a perfect solution for the wind in noise
  • There is a lower risk of feedback as the distance between microphone and receiver is further than normal custom products
