Along with treating hearing loss with hearing aids, there are other hearing accessories you can use in conjunction with hearing aids. These hearing accessories can help facilitate a connection between your hearing aids and other devices, ranging from your TV to your smartphone.
As we here at Hearing Associates of Las Vegas like to help you learn more about hearing aids and their accessories, we have been highlighting various devices. One of the handy hearing devices we would like to highlight is the Oticon ConnectClip.
What Is The Oticon ConnectClip
The Oticon ConnectClip is a small device that you can pair with your compatible Oticon hearing aids. With the ConnectClip, you can improve the functionality of your hearing aids, as it allows you to stream sound from things like your computer, smartphone, and use the ConnectClip as a remote microphone.
For instance, instead of trying to position your smartphone so that you can facilitate hearing and talking, you can simply use the ConnectClip to stream your phone calls directly to your hearing aids.
Or, say that you attend meetings in a group setting. You can set the ConnectClip down where you feel you may need sound amplification, and it can capture and amplify the speaker’s words and deliver the sound directly back to you.
Hearing Aids Compatible With ConnectClip
Not all of Oticon’s hearing aids are compatible with the ConnectClip. The main prerequisites are that the hearing aids are updated to Firmware 5.0 or higher, as well as having 2.4 GHz Twinlink connectivity. At this time, that means these Oticon hearing aids are compatible:
- Opn S
- Opn Play
If you are looking for Oticon hearing aids in Las Vegas, then you can count on the Hearing Associates of Las Vegas. We carry all major hearing aid brands and many of the smaller hearing aid brands so that we can provide you with as many hearing options as possible.
Common Questions About ConnectClip
Along with compatibility questions, there are other common questions that come up when it comes to the Oticon ConnectClip. Below are some of the top questions—and if your question isn’t below, our hearing instrument specialists will be more than happy to help provide answers.
How hard is it to use the ConnectClip?
Like any other new piece of technology, it will take a bit of time to familiarize yourself with how your ConnectClip works. However, our hearing instrument specialists will help you learn how to use your device before you leave our office. Along with the fairly straightforward design of the ConnectClip, it should not be difficult for you to start enjoying this device.
Is the ConnectClip water- and dust-proof?
Unfortunately, the ConnectClip is not water- or dust-proof and is not even resistant to the extent that many modern digital hearing aids are now designed. It is sweat-proof, so long as it does not become drenched. If there is any question about the ConnectClip becoming wet or infused with dust particles, it is best if you don’t have the device on you.
Can the Oticon ON App pair with the ConnectClip?
You can use the Oticon ON App in conjunction with the ConnectClip to help improve the utility of your ConnectClip. For instance, you can use the app to adjust the volume remotely when the ConnectClip is in the microphone mode. The app can also help you keep track of the battery level, as well as other features.
