The wireless Mini Microphone improves speech understanding in noise

The Cochlear Wireless Mini Microphone was launched in 2013 as one of four wireless accessories that seamlessly work with the Baha 4 Sound Processor. It’s the only technology to offer direct streaming from the Mini Microphone to the sound processor.

You can clip the microphone onto your spouse’s collar to hear them better in a noisy restaurant, attach it to backseat passengers in the car when you’re driving so you can hear them without needing to turn around, or give it to your child’s teacher during lesson time. The microphone will easily connect to the sound processor so you’ll hear louder and clearer only the person you want to hear. 

Small and discreet - and truly wireless

According to recent research*, patients using the wireless Mini Microphone reported a large improvement in hearing in noisy situations, compared to standard directional microphone solutions. What this means is that by using the Mini Microphone, you will always have the same short distance to the speaker. When placed 10-30 centimeters from the speaker’s mouth, despite the noise or distance between or around you – a meeting, a noisy restaurant, a kid’s birthday party – you’ll hear them as loud and clear as if you were standing right next to them. And best of all? No need for any bulky cords worn around your neck – it’s truly wireless!
