Oticon Assistive Technology
Oticon’s New Streamer Pro
Oticon’s New Streamer Pro – the heart of ConnectLine – puts you in total control. Not only of program shifts and hearing aid volume, but of all sources of audio-based information, entertainment and communication.
By picking up the audio signal and sending it straight into both ears, the Streamer turns a pair of hearing aids into a small wireless headset. With no detectable delays in transmission, audio signals perfectly match any visual images. This can make all the difference when watching TV or using a computer.
Streamer Pro has been developed and thoroughly tested with hearing aid users in mind so that daily use is straightforward and intuitive. Looking much like a stylish MP3 player, the Streamer is worn around the neck and features three dedicated buttons for the core applications: phone, TV and microphone.
Streamer Pro offers…
- Long battery life
Up to eight hours of streaming time for a full day’s use.
- Compact, user-friendly design
Features texturized rubber edges for easier handling and a more comfortable grip.
- Intuitive operation
Three buttons makes it possible to instantly select and activate the application needed.
Streamer Pro is compatible with all wireless Oticon hearing aids and ConnectLine devices for seamless, hassle-free upgrades.
Streamer Pro is the gateway to the ConnectLine system and is worn around the neck. When hearing aids are linked to Streamer Pro, practically any audio source can be transmitted through Streamer Pro to the hearing aids using a wireless Bluetooth connection or a mini jack cable.
Enjoy clear conversation among the crowd.
With ConnectLine microphone, you can participate and interact in some of life’s most important situations – on equal terms with everyone else.
Demanding listening situations such as crowded or noisy environments often make understandable communication impossible. ConnectLine microphone changes this.
ConnectLine microphone is a discreet microphone that connects wirelessly to the Streamer and lets you enjoy clear and private one-to-one communication in challenging listening environments. Listening performance is dramatically improved where one-to-one conversations before were difficult or even impossible.
Chatting in the car
With the ConnectLine microphone placed on your companion you can focus on the journey. The microphone transmits the voice of your companion wirelessly to your hearing instruments ensuring a clear direct sound, and you don’t have to face each other.
How it works
The discreet microphone is worn by your conversation partner and connects wirelessly to Streamer Pro, allowing you to hear the other person’s voice clear and loud directly through your hearing aid.
ConnectLine microphone picks up your partner’s voice, filters out surrounding noise and transmits wirelessly, directly to the Streamer at a distance of up to 15 meters.
ConnectLine Microphone is a discreet clip-on microphone that enhances speech understanding of a chosen speaker’s voice in challenging sound environments.
