Phonak is proud to introduce the Audéo B-Direct to it’s product portfolio, and it is now available at Schmidt’s Optical and Hearing™. It offers direct connectivity to any Bluetooth phone (with Bluetooth 4.2 wireless technology) and most older Bluetooth phones. This industry milestone opens up the world of direct connectivity to all phones. It doesn’t matter if your clients use Android, iOS or other cell phones, they can enjoy the benefits of direct connectivity. And with the new TV Connector, Phonak offers a plug and play solution that turns your hearing aids into wireless TV headphones.
With direct connectivity hearing aids, Phonak offers a solution that provides true hands-free functionality just like a Bluetooth wireless headset. The hearing aids utilize it’s built-in microphones to pick up the clients voice for phone calls. A call can be heard ringing directly in the hearing aids and with a simple push of a button, can be answered or rejected. This can be done at distance from the telephone e.g. while a client is positioned on the other side of a room. Direct connectivity also extends to media playing with automatic connectivity to any TV or stereo system through a new and compact, multimedia hub called TV Connector. It delivers excellent stereo sound quality up to 15m away and does not require any additional streaming device.
With the direct connectivity capabilities of Audéo B-Direct you can also adjust your hearing aids from any smartphone with the new Phonak Remote app. The app is an advanced remote control for your Phonak hearing aids. Used in combination with Bluetooth, it optimizes your hearing aid by providing more control and flexibility. Once installed, the easy-to-follow pairing wizard will help connect the app to the hearing aids. Check out the demonstration mode to experience more about the possibilities.
