The ReSound Multi Mic has a whole lot of gee-whiz electronics in there and different modes for telecoils, for FM transmitters, for audio jack inputs and so on.
But you only need to know this: If and when I ask you to clip it onto your shirt or wear it around your neck (it comes with a tiny lanyard), please do.
The device weighs maybe 20 grams and is about the size of a largish thumb. (You may look like a dork with it clipped or hung upon your flawless outfit, and that’s your problem.) It also helps me hear and understand you better, especially in noisy places, in big rooms or at open spaces. Because I can then turn off the microphones in my hearing aids and boost the noise-to-signal ratio (or is it signal-to-noise?). During conversations, I don’t need to hear everything; I only need to hear you.
And as every hearing aid user will tell you (and no matter what manufacturers say about giving us super hearing), background noise remains our kryptonite.
