We’ve all experienced it: you’re in a noisy restaurant and your mobile phone rings. You frantically dig in your pocket or bag desperately looking for your phone. One solution would be simply to ignore the call but what if it’s important? Even if you wear hearing aids, using a mobile phone in such a noisy environment can be a challenge. This is where Phonak’s new Direct hearing instruments come into their own……
Phonak Direct is powered by the all new proprietary SWORD™ 2.4 GHz radio chip, and apart from an overall superb general sound quality, this new instrument provides direct connectivity to any Bluetooth mobile phone. Also with Phonak’s new TV Connector, Direct offers a solution that simultaneously streams the TV or any other audio signal directly into the instruments without the need for any devices worn around the neck. The two combined, provides the ultimate sound experience to enable you to enjoy sound at a level best suited to yourself, whilst others in the same room continue to enjoy television at their most comfortable level.
The TV Connector streams audio signals directly to the hearing aids within a range of up to 15 meters. As soon as the TV Connector is connected to the TV and power source, it will automatically detect any compatible hearing aids. No need for any complicated setup process. TV Connector can equally well be used for streaming music etc from any other audio source (radio, iPhone, iPad, computer etc).
