Behind-the-ear (BTE) and some traditional custom hearing instruments have less-than-ideal microphone placement compared to the natural ear, causing distortions to occur if sound collection from the pinna is not utilized. Remote Microphone Technology takes advantage of the pinna effect to preserve natural localization (including front-back localization performance) and directional cues.
"This technology is completely unique to ReSound," said Dr. Christensen. "As an element of good sound quality, ReSound's remote microphone hearing instruments restore the pinna effect to give a sense of spatial awareness and localization."
Early market feedback quickly validated the benefits of this innovative hearing instrument design that leverages the ear's natural abilities through consistent patient reports of significant wind noise reduction, superior sound quality and an improved ability to localize sound.
