Understanding Your Phonak TV Connector
The Phonak TV Connector is a sleek gadget that allows you to connect compatible hearing aids to your TV or other entertainment devices. This device works in a similar fashion to how you would connect your wireless earphones to your smartphone.
The Phonak TV connector is compatible with the Phonak Paradise, Phonak Marvel and Phonak Audeo B-Direct hearing aids as well as some Unitron hearing aids. This easy to use device employs a technology known as AirStream to deliver impressive sound quality from any TV or Stereo system. The TV Connector can simultaneously stream audio signals from up to 15 meters to an unlimited amount of connected hearing aids.
So how do you set up your Phonak TV Connector?
When you receive your Phonak TV Connector the box should contain the connector itself, an audio cable and a power cord. Plug the power cord into the TV connector and then into the wall socket, this will give the connector power. Then connect the audio cable into the TV connector and the audio OUT port into the back of your TV. A green light on the TV connector will appear and this indicates that the device is ready to stream.
