M&RIE (Microphone & Receiver-In-Ear)

Role
The Microphone & Receiver-in-Ear design combines the two traditional hearing aid microphones with a third microphone that sits in the ear to collect sounds in the most natural way.

End user benefit
M&RIE uses the unique shape of each patients' ear to collect sound the way nature intended. Patients get the natural sound of custom products, combined with the advanced features and ease of use of a RIE model, for an immersive and individualized hearing experience with greater depth and direction.

Natural Sound Quality with M&Rie

M&RIE adds a third microphone that sits in the patient’s ear canal as part of the receiver module. With this, the unique sound filtering properties of the patient’s own anatomy are preserved, allowing the brain to receive the sound as nature intended.

Benefits of the M&RIE include better localization and improved spatial hearing and enhanced sound quality, even compared to pinna compensation algorithms.
