Users will benefit from GN’s latest hearing innovation, the unique Microphone and Receiver in Ear (M&RIE), to hear the world around them in the most intuitive and natural way. Clinical studies show that 9 out of ten users prefer the sound quality when using M&RIE, and that they can recognize location of sounds 90% more accurately. ii,iii The new range includes three popular RIE-style hearing aids that are packed with the latest features, including rechargeable options with up to 30 hours of power from one charge, direct streaming from iOS and Android™ devices and future-proof Bluetooth® Low Energy.
