ReSound Multi Mic
GN Resound Multi Mic
ReSound developed their much loved Multi Mic to offer the market a premium quality device for streaming speech and audio from a variety of sources directly to compatible hearing aids including ReSound Alera, Verso, LiNX, Enzo and Quattro hearing aids.
It is also compatible with NHS ReSound and Danalogic hearing aids with a wireless function – check with your Audiology department to find out what model your NHS hearing aids are and if they are wireless enabled.
When clipped to your conversation partners clothing or worn around their neck on the lanyard provided, you can enjoy a better listening experience in your one-to-one conversation in noise as the signal to noise ratio will be reduced. Or place it horizontal on a level surface, or table, whilst in a group of people, this will automatically switch the Multi Mic into optimised mode for to hear multiple speakers in places like a restaurant or cafe.
For best results, make sure the device is within a range of 10-40cm (4-16 inches) from the speaker’s mouth.
The device is small and lightweight and comes with a draw string storage pouch making it simple to keep neatly in your pocket or handbag ready for use when on the go.
The Multi Mic features many other streaming choices by means of the line in audio jack. Any media device that has a headphone output (e.g. mobile phone, mp3 player, TV, computer or tablet) can be connected to this jack for seamless high quality streaming of your favourite entertainment.
As the Multi Mic has a built in telecoil, when set to the “T” mode it can receive audio from a teleloop system. In FM mode the Multi Mic can receive audio from a FM transmitter.
This requires that an FM receiver (optional accessory) is attached to the Multi Mic via the 3-pin Euro pin connector. Switching between modes is simply done at the press of the mode button and LED lights clearly indicate which mode is selected.
Battery and Volume Adjustment
The Multi Mic is designed to provide a comfortable listening level from the moment it is activated. However, for some devices or listening environments you may want to adjust the volume and can do this with the volume buttons. The device will fully charge from a flat battery in 3 hours and helpful LEDs will indicate the status of the battery. When less than 30 minutes of operating time is left (low battery condition) the status LED will start blinking orange.
