Micro-Tech started in 1986 as a subordinate of the international hearing devices major, Starkey Laboratories. Located in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Micro-Tech was set up in order to provide the hearing-impaired with compact, trendy Micro-tech hearing aids that offer high sound clarity in spite of their small size.
In order to maintain the highest standard, the constituents used in Micro-tech hearing aids are of best quality, and contain gold battery contacts hybrid microchips. Each Micro-tech hearing aid undergoes strict quality control testing.
Micro-Tech even pays for the annual trip that its audiologists take to Mexico, where they attach poor hearing-impaired persons with Micro-Tech hearing aids.
Audiologists also play an important part in the development of pioneering technologies for the users of for Micro-Tech hearing aids. Micro-Tech also provides educational programs for hearing professionals through various institutions like the American Academy of Audiology.
Few Micro-Tech’s hearing aid innovations consist of the unique proprietary DiRx directional technology to allow Micro-Tech hearing aids users to direct their microphones towards a speaker, both giving more clarity to their words and blocking out noises coming from other directions. The Caballo, Denali, and Dx3 Micro-Tech hearing aids all use DiRx capability.
Micro-Tech also introduced one of the first completely in canal, or CIC, hearing devices. The first CIC Micro-Tech hearing aids was introduced in 1993, and since then the company has successfully introduced advanced compact yet technologically sophisticated hearing devices for about 15 years. CIC Micro-Tech hearing aids can be constructed at their technologically advanced lab to contain any of Micro-Tech digital circuitry.
Micro-Tech has even come out with its own range of batteries for using with Micro-Tech hearing aids, having gold-plated contacts to assure highest conductivity.
Micro-Tech and Kids
Micro-Tech, with an aim to relieve the discomfort of children, diagnosed with hearing impairment, will offer a “custom care package” to be used along with the child’s behind the ear Micro-Tech hearing aid. The packages can contain everything from stickers and removable tattoos to coloring books and plush animals totally free of charge.
To teach children the responsibility of looking after their Micro-Tech hearing aids, Micro-Tech has Mr. BTE, a rich frog-like doll with hidden pockets, from which one has a dehumidifier for the hearing aid.
Micro-Tech’s concern for the poor hearing-impaired in Mexico and its “custom care packages” are just 2 signs that the company has a philanthropic heart, for which customer service will always be important.
