A Revolutionary Phone for the Hard of Hearing! Mirafone's patented DirectVibe Pulsator transduces sound waves via bone conduction, bypassing the conventional auditory process. By placing the handset's DirectVibe pulsator at strategic locations on your head, sound vibrations travel from the pulsator to the speech recognition center in your brain. Unlike amplified phones that simply make the sound louder, the Mirafone works in conjunction with the bone rather than the ear. The sound bypasses where the hearing impairment has occurred and works directly through the bone for maximum efficiency and you are able to "hear" through your bone rather than your ear. Mirafone is effective for a wide range of hearing impairments and is designed for people with no hearing to severe hearing loss. If you are not hard of hearing, your auditory system will override the vibrations of the DirectVibe Pulsator and the phone will work in the conventional manner.

How can someone that is hard of hearing hear the Mirafone ring? The Mirafone has one of the loudest ringers in the industry, as well as a visual ringer that flashes when the phone rings.

What is DirectVibe? DirectVibe is the patented technology of OPENTECH that allows the Mirafone to work. It is a dime-sized vibrating knob located on the handset that allows you to hear when placed on the bone.
How can I use the Mirafone if you are not hearing impaired? If your hearing is not impaired, you will probably not be able to "hear" through the DirectVibe pulsator in the same manner as a hearing impaired person. Your auditory system will override the vibrations of the DirectVibe pulsator and the phone will work like any other normal telephone. If you would like to experience the sound vibrations as a hearing impaired individual would, do the following: Cover both ears with the palms of your hand. Have someone hold the Mirafone's Directvibe pulsator to your temple while someone speaks to you on the phone.
