Oticon, Inc. Launches Upgraded Streamer Pro 1.2 at 2014 AudiologyNOW!
Connects to iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch® via new Oticon ConnectLine App
COPENHAGEN, DK March 26 – Oticon today announced a newly upgraded Streamer Pro 1.2 that will enable hearing instrument users to more effectively participate in many everyday activities from making phone calls to watching TV. The small and discreet Streamer Pro 1.2 is worn around the neck and acts as intermediary device to connect Bluetooth™-enabled devices to Oticon hearing instruments. Streamer Pro 1.2 can now also connect to iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch® via the Oticon ConnectLine App that will be introduced at 2014 AudiologyNOW!. The new connectivity solution will be available to existing and future users of Oticon wireless hearing instruments across the price spectrum, including an installed base of approximately two million current users.
“The launch of our updated Streamer Pro 1.2 will immediately benefit millions of hearing device users who will experience a new level of convenience and discreetness,” says Soren Nielsen, President, Oticon A/S. “Our simple, intuitive functionality gives Oticon hearing instrument wearers the ability to connect to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch via Streamer Pro without compromising sound quality.”
When the Streamer Pro 1.2 is paired with the ConnectLine App, it provides intuitive functionality that enables users to switch to a variety of input sources with just their fingertips. Volume can be adjusted individually for each source, in advance or in the moment. Users can move seamlessly from making phone and FaceTime calls to listening to music. They can also connect to the entire integrated ConnectLine system including ConnectLine TV, Phone Adapters and Microphone.
The free, downloadable ConnectLine App allows users to clearly see what hearing program they are using. Program names can be personalized so that they are easily identified such as restaurant, office, sports and more. Users can also take advantage of a number of custom options not previously available including last number dialed, reject call and voice dial as well as set specific functions such as designating ringtones to identify specific callers. The new connectivity solution delivers audiological features including true binaural signal processing and low power consumption.
