Multipurpose device doubles as remote/partner microphone for improved intelligibility in difficult listening situations
Oticon ConnectClip is the newest addition to the comprehensive and easy-to-use range of Oticon connectivity devices designed to improve users' listening and communication experiences. The discreet intermediary device turns Oticon Opn™ hearing aids into a high quality wireless headset for clear, hands-free calls from modern mobile phones, including iPhone® and Android™ smartphones. Sound from the mobile phones is streamed directly to the hearing aids and ConnectClip's directional microphones pick up the wearer’s voice. ConnectClip can also function as a remote/partner microphone, providing improved intelligibility of the speaker wearing it, either at a distance (up to 65 feet), in very noisy environments or in a combination of the two.
"ConnectClip is a unique multipurpose device that empowers Oticon Opn users to participate even more and interact in a number of everyday listening situations that are at best difficult and at worst impossible," says Paul Bauer, M.A., CCC-A, Director of Product Management, Marketing for Oticon, Inc. "ConnectClip allows users to make and receive hands-free calls from iPhone or Android smartphones in the car or on the go. With ConnectClip's remote microphone functionality, users can hear what is being said at a distance or in difficult listening environments. The speaker simply clips on the remote microphone and sound is streamed directly to the hearing aids."
ConnectClip enables high-quality streaming with 2.4GHz Bluetooth Low Energy from any modern smartphone to both Opn hearing aids. Audio or music from Bluetooth-connected mobile phones, MP3 players, PCs and more is streamed in stereo to both hearing aids. For easy, hassle-free connectivity, ConnectClip can be paired or connected directly to a computer’s built-in Bluetooth or used with the BTD 800 USB dongle. Opn wearers can also use ConnectClip as a remote control to adjust volume and change programs on their hearing aids discreetly with just a simple touch of a button.
