Question: Hi, I have heard that you can’t use an FM System with the Baha 5 Sound Processor, is this true? // Jane
Answer: Dear Jane,
Of course you are able to use FM and other Assistive Listening Devices (ALD), for example in classrooms, together with the Baha 5 Sound Processor.
To access FM/ALD systems you use the Cochlear Wireless Mini Microphone and connect it via a 3.5 mm audio cable to the FM/ALD receiver. This will allow you to stream the FM signal wirelessly to the sound processor. The FM/ALD receiver and Mini Microphone can be placed anywhere within range of your sound processor.
Should you or your hearing care professional need more information about this we have a quick guide that explains how to connect the system.
