Mino is an all-digital personal amplifier that helps you hear better in most everyday situations. Mino delivers crystal clear sound, even in busy environments. Whether you only have trouble hearing from time to time or are already using a hearing device, it will make a big difference in your daily life.
Using the Mino is intuitive. Just place it on a table or hang it around your neck and speech will come through loud and clear, even in noisy situations. You can choose to listen with headphones (included) or with earphones (available separately), MicroSet (available separately), or— if you use hearing aids— via a neck loop (available separately). All functions are accessed with the simple press of a button and there are no complicated menus to navigate.
The Mino uses a rechargeable lithium-ion battery so you never need to worry about buying new batteries. It takes less than 2.5 hours to charge and lasts up to 18 hours per charge. The Mino is as small as a cell phone and weighs just 2.5 oz., so you can easily carry it in your pocket. Measures 3.875" x 1.875" x 0.875".
Includes rechargeable battery, AC and USB charging cord, lanyard, and stereo headphones.
HOW CAN MINO HELP YOU EVERY DAY:
AT HOME. Listen at the volume of your choice without others having to raise their voices. Simply place the Mino near the other person and worry no more. The Mino effectively isolates speech while removing disturbing background sounds. The result is crystal clear speech with no noise. We offer a number of accessories for the Mino. Non-hearing aid users can, for example, choose to listen using headphones, MicroSet earphones (available separately), or stetoclips (available separately).
WITH FRIENDS. Trouble hearing people in noisy environments? Change to the zoom microphone to reduce background noise and focus on the conversation. The zoom microphone is an excellent choice in environments that features a lot of background noise like for instance restaurants, coffee houses, train terminals, stores, or airports. You can easily change between the microphones with a simple press of a button, depending on your current need.
IN THEATRES. Do you avoid movie theaters and concerts? Many public venues, such as theaters, concert halls, and churches, are fitted with hearing loops. Sound from the loudspeakers in such venues is converted into an electromagnetic field that the Mino picks up via its built-in Telecoil. The Mino's Telecoil always delivers perfect sound, whether it's placed in your pocket or on a table. Look for a T symbol sign next time you visit your favorite movie theater.
IN STORES. When you're shopping downtown, it's handy to keep the Mino in a pocket so that both your hands are free. The MicroSet is a unique accessory specially developed for such times. It includes a small lapel microphone that you simply attach to your clothes and a discreet earphone that you pop in your ear. The lapel microphone is unidirectional (zoom) and reduces background noise in the store, so you can talk with the clerk uninhibited.
WATCHING TV. When you have difficulty hearing, it's easy to turn the TV volume up to the max, which other family members don't always appreciate. With the Mino, there's no reason to turn up the TV volume to hear better. Use a cable kit to connect the Mino to the TV and you can enjoy great TV sound in stereo while sparing your family's ears. If you want to comment on the show, simply press the Push-to-Listen button on the Mino to lower the volume and join the conversation.
