A new and discrete way of hearing - Introducing the MINO
Mino, a new Bellman and Symfon product, has recently been launched and is now available in South Africa. It is the world's first fully digital personal amplifier for the consumer market with both omni- and directional microphones.
Bellman & Symfon® (Gothenburg, Sweden) recently announced the introduction of Mino™, the world’s first fully digital personal amplifier for the consumer market with both omni- and directional microphone. Mino is provided with incredible features including High Definition Audio technology (HDA), Zoom function and the latest cell phone battery technology – all combined in a design that's thin and light enough to fit discretely in the pocket. The new Mino features up to 18 hours of continuous speech and full stereo music amplification on a single battery charge.
“We’ve put our most advanced technology inside the Mino,” said Peter Jungvid Bellman & Symfons’s CEO. “Whether you’re chatting with your spouse, going to a movie, attending a meeting or watching a TV show, the Mino with its revolutionary HDA technology makes words and music come out more distinct than ever before.”
Discrete listening with the MicroSet™
The Mino comes bundled with the original MicroSet™ accessory from Bellman & Symfon during the introduction period. The MicroSet is a new and unique accessory specially developed for the Mino. It combines a powerful lapel microphone that the Mino user can attach to the sleeve and a very potent earphone.
“The personal amplifiers of today are often quite big and people tend to wear them around the neck to get good speech intelligibility, said Anders Lenning, Bellman & Symfons’s Chief Technical Officer. Until now, if you desired a discrete solution, the only alternative available was a traditional hearing aid. But not everyone can afford them, and many people just don’t like to wear them. The Mino and the MicroSet addresses the need of this audience. Now they can tuck away their personal amplifier discretely in the pocket and have both hands free. It actually looks like they are just enjoying a great tune on their MP3 player. It’s off-the-shelf, affordable and requires no individual fitting procedures.”
Mino is part of a family of fully digital assistive listening devices. Bellman & Symfons’s new line-up includes the Maxi personal amplifier; the amazing new Domino Pro wireless communication system with 128-bit encrypted broadband transmission, fully digital High Definition Audio technology, Zoom function and rechargeable Li-ion batteries; and the new Domino Classic, a system that offers all the vast advantages of a full-grown wireless hearing system - at a surprisingly affordable prices.
