Can the Baha 5 Sound Processor stream directly to Android phones?

Question: Do you know when or if the Baha 5 Sound Processor will be able to stream directly to Android phones like it does for the iPhone? I have the phone clip which streams to my Samsung Galaxy S5, but I would like the Baha 5 Sound Processor to stream directly to my Android phone, so I do not have the hassle of remembering to possess and turn on the phone clip.

Thank you. // James

Answer: Dear James, thank you for your question.

Currently, only Apple offers the technology to stream audio directly to a Baha sound processor. To stream sound and take phone calls from an Android phone you need the Cochlear Wireless Phone Clip.

The Baha 5 Sound Processor can also be controlled from an Android phone using the Cochlear Baha Control App. If you don’t already have the app installed, download it here:
