Streamer devices and wireless hearing products
Traditionally, wireless hearing products have been connected to the hearing instrument either inductively via the T-coil program, or connected directly to the instrument via the Direct-Audio-Input (DAI) program.
In order to find the optimal way of connection for the user, we need to take multiple factors into account: audiological, technical and of course personal preference.
Streamers – the third way to your hearing
The majority of hearing instruments sold today support wireless connection to peripheral sound sources, i.e. mobile phone, TV, landline phone or a remote microphone. Each hearing instrument manufacturer has its own way to connect to these sound sources, but for the most part they use some sort of body-worn communication device also known as a ‘streamer’ *).
Turns a good streamer into an even better!
Most streamers on the market support the connection of a wireless mini receiver, opening up the hearing system to the digital world of hearing products from Comfort Audio.
