On Wednesday, April 1st Oticon released a revolutionary new wireless system, ConnectLine, that allows hearing device wearers the ability to wirelessly connect to their landline, mobile phone, television, and music player. The listening experience is enhanced through the use of a personal Streamer that connects your hearing instruments to the numerous entertainment systems.
Here’s how it works…you are watching a TV program, let’s say American Idol, and have created a sync between the ConnectLive TV adaptor and your hearing instrument Streamer. During a commercial break your phone rings. With a simple click of a button on your wireless streamer, your hearing instruments are transformed from a surround sound television to a blue tooth wireless headset, to discuss all the previous contestants with your best friend in California. It really is that simple! The sound from the TV is directly inputed into your hearing instruments one minute, and with the click of a button you’re connected to a phone call on your land line or mobile phone.
We are excited to offer this product to our patient base! I will continue to update our readers on the release date and post any more information we receive on ConnectLine as it becomes available.
