Beltone Imagine with M&RIE
A new speaker design is called the M&RIE which stands for microphone and receiver in the canal. The speaker unit or receiver includes a third microphone on the speaker unit that sits deep inside the ear canal.
The microphone in the ear canal picks up the sound that enters the ear naturally. This enables the hearing aid to account for the natural resonance of the ear (and ear canal). This means the hearing aid can more naturally reproduce the natural sound of the wearer’s ear.
This new technology eliminates unnatural sound and delivers improved sound quality.

Ultra Focus and CrossLink Directionality 3
A new feature of Imagine is that they can narrow the focus of the microphones input from both sides to have a narrow focus or become beam forming. This automatic focus activates when very poor signal to noise ratios are detected. i.e. the signal of desired speech to competing background noise is poor.
This enables the user to focus on the speech from the front whilst minimising the competing noise from the sides and behind. Compared to traditional directionality it provides up to 2 dB better signal-to-noise ratio.
