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
