(February 27, 2017) Chicago, IL – Beltone, a leader in hearing healthcare for over 75 years, announced today that Beltone myPAL accessories have been named a 2017 Edison Award winner in the health and wellness 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 – even in noisy environments – and stream directly into the wearer’s hearing aids, bringing the conversation or entertainment closer to them.
“The myPAL accessories provide the next step in personalized sound for those special circumstances where the wearer needs an additional boost in noisy environments,” said Corrine Perritano, president of Beltone North America. “We are delighted to see them recognized for the health-focused innovation that they are.”
Both the myPAL Pro and myPAL Micro connect to Beltone’s line of hearing aids and are designed to suit different audiological needs and preferences. While connected to a Beltone hearing aid, the Beltone myPAL accessories feature:
- Two microphone modes for listening to an individual or group
- Automatic switch to the group setting when placed horizontally
- Wireless range of up to 80 feet (clear line of sight)
- Directional microphone for clear, crisp sound
