These days, hearing aids are incredibly sophisticated devices. They don’t just perform one function, but they can be paired with a variety of accessories to enhance the wearer’s experience. Most have Apple connectivity, allowing you to stream sounds through your iPhone or iPad. But one of our audiologists’ all-time favorite accessories is the ReSound Multi Mic. Want to know more? Let’s take a look at its features.

How Does It Work?

The ReSound Multi Mic elevates the volume of individual voices in environments where you might have trouble hearing. To do this, you can either place the device on a flat surface between a number of people or fasten it onto a person’s jacket or shirt. The microphone then precisely picks out your chosen speakers and wirelessly transfers their sounds to your hearing aid within a range of 80 feet. You can also connect the ReSound Multi Mic to any appliance that has a headphone socket, so you can stream audio at a level suiting your needs.

Cutting Through Crowds

Some of the places our patients often use the ReSound Multi Mic are in cafés and restaurants where lots of people are talking at once. In these situations, you simply place the device between yourself and a loved one to chat freely without feeling uncomfortable or distracted. Similarly, if you take a long car journey with a number of relatives, then traffic noises, loud music, and rushing wind can make it hard to maintain conversations. With the ReSound Multi Mic’s clip capability, however, you can place it onto someone’s seatbelt or clothing to maintain conversations without any problems.

Handy At Home

Hearing aid users also find that the ReSound Multi Mic is very useful for increasing the volume of different electronic appliances at home. For example, when watching a film on the television with a number of people, it can be hard for hearing aid wearers to find a volume that suits everyone. Instead of asking to raise the general sound level, those with the ReSound Multi Mic can simply place their device next to the television’s speaker. They can then change the volume in their hearing aid to a position that’s perfect and join an experience that they otherwise couldn’t take part in.

Useful At Meetings

Another great feature of the ReSound Multi Mic is that it has a telecoil feature that can be activated in different situations. If, for instance, you’re at a church that has a loop system installed, you can simply switch the ReSound Multi Mic to pick up a minister’s sermon directly. Likewise, if you attend a town hall meeting, you can use the device to hear a community spokesperson’s speech over audience participation and applause. The telecoil feature works as long as you’re connected to the radio signal within the room, so you can be further than 80 feet to make it work.

What Was Betty's First Experience at Audicles Like ...
“My first sign of hearing loss was gradually realizing that I couldn’t hear and was missing too much. My first impressions of Audicles were that I would recommend them, they had a good reputation and local. I knew that I needed help and found them very easy to work with, very thorough and very likable. Hearing aids have impacted my life a great deal, I was missing too much of what was going on. My advice to anybody considering visiting Audicles would be that they’re an excellent choice and I think they would be very happy with them.”

What Would Brian Rate Audicles Out of 10? ...
“I first realized I had signs of hearing loss in the early 90’s, my biggest fear at the time was having to wear hearing aids and feeling old and deaf. I went to visit Audicles and if I had to rate my first impressions on a scale of 1 to 10 I would give them a 12+. From day one of having my hearing aids, everything changed, when I take them off the world goes to only 50% hearing, so they really have positively impacted my life. I always recommend Audicles so if you are considering visiting, I would highly recommend and refer Audicles and Tracey Board.”

Dr. Watson’s passion to help kids hear better was very heartwarming ...
“My first signs of hearing loss started in 3rd grade, I had problems with my teacher, which in turn led to having a hearing test, which found high frequency hearing loss in my left ear. Audicles made me feel very comfortable right from the start and Dr. Watson’s passion to help kids hear better was very heartwarming, enough to keep me as a patient for 30+ years. My hearing aids have become a true blessing as I have gotten older, if you are considering visiting Audicles, don’t wait! They truly go above and beyond to help you.”

What Happened at 4 Year Old Hunter's First Appointment ...
“Hunter was just four years old when we found out he had a profound hearing loss in both ears and as his parents we were so worried Hunter would have to live with this disability and would always be considered different. As soon as his hearing aids were turned on, he ran to the window and said “trucks.” He could hear the traffic for the first time. When we got home to his Memi’s house, he could hear the peacocks and he was so excited … it was priceless. The impact hearing aids have had on Hunter’s life is incredible, Hunter says “I am able to live a normal life and communicate easily with my family and friends. I love to hunt and fish, which are two things I can do better when I can hear.” For anybody considering visiting Audicles, we would not consider taking Hunter anywhere else, they are the most caring people you will ever meet. We love Dr. Board and all of the staff, they are extremely helpful and welcoming at all times.”

She Always Made Me Feel Like I Belonged ...
“I was only two when signs of hearing loss were detected so I don’t remember my first appointment, but one of my earliest memories was visiting Dr. Jane with my grandpa.

The impact hearing aids have had on my life is indescribable, I would not be where I am without the help of Audicles, Dr. Jane went above and beyond to help me. I would say to anybody considering visiting Audicles, what are you waiting for?”

There is Never a Better Time to Do It Than The Present ...
“I noticed the first signs of hearing loss at work, as I work with children in my teaching job, I found it harder and harder to hear them. My family were also giving me a hard time about the TV volume. I was so ready to increase my quality of life and not miss anything so I had no fears about visiting Audicles for my first appointment. I was made to feel right at home! They were professional, kind, patient and explained everything. Hearing aids have impacted my life in a big way, I can hear my grandchildren. I have been able to use mics and the technology offered for a variety of purposes was all for the good. If you are considering visiting Audicles, just do it! There is never a better time than the present. What do you have to lose?”
