(February 9, 2017) Chicago, IL – Beltone, a leader in hearing healthcare for over 75 years, announced today that Beltone myPAL accessories have been named a 2017 BIG Innovation Award winner in the innovative product category.
The Beltone myPAL Pro and myPAL Micro are hearing aid accessories that provide the ultimate experience in personalized sound. Beltone myPAL accessories are small portable microphones that capture sounds clearly and stream directly into the wearer’s hearing aids, bringing the conversation or entertainment closer to them.
“We are thrilled to see the myPAL accessories recognized for the consumer-focused innovation that they are,” said Corrine Perritano, president of Beltone North America. “They provide the next step in ultimate, personalized sound for those special circumstances where the wearer needs additional clarity in noisy environments.”
Both myPAL accessories connect to Beltone’s line of hearing aids and are designed to suit different audiological needs and preferences. The accessories feature individual and group settings, automatic mode-switching, wireless range of 80 feet (clear line of sight), directional microphone for clear, crisp sound, on-board volume control, and up to 10-hour battery life.
“The sheer pace of innovation is accelerating in virtually every industry as new technology allows corporations and other organizations to rethink how they approach and solve real problems that affect the way we work, love and play,” said Maria Jimenez, chief operating officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are thrilled to be honoring Beltone as they are leading by example and making real progress on improving the daily lives of so many.”
