Tip of the Week: How to stream music from your smartphone

Every Wednesday, Mark Flynn, PhD, Cochlear’s Audiologist and Director of Research and Applications, gives his best Baha tips!

How to stream music from your smartphone through the Phone Clip:cochlear-phone-clip

Previously, we discussed how you can use the phone clip for making and receiving telephone calls.

That same Bluetooth connection can also be used to send music directly from your smartphone to your Baha 4 Sound Processor. In stereo!

Simply ensure that the Baha sound processor is in wireless mode and start the music application (or any application, e.g. sports/training) and the audio will stream directly to your sound processor. Just like a set of wireless headphones!

Baha user Lee shares his experience with the new Baha 4 Sound Processor and wireless accessories

Baha user Lee, from Newcastle, UK, was one of the first people to trial the new Baha 4 Sound Processor and wireless products. We met with Lee in October 2013 where he shared his experiences with us. Lee, who is a college teacher in electrical engineering, especially enjoys the wireless phone clip accessory.

“This phone clip right here, I can’t live without it now!” exclaims Lee proudly and points to the small device he has firmly attached to his tie. “It’s absolutely brilliant that you can get any sound you want from the phone. For example, in lessons I get notifications if I get an email or text and no one else can hear it, so it doesn’t interfere with the class.”

Lee, who has been a bilateral Baha user for 10 years, also noted vast improvements in the sound processors concerning both feedback and wind.

“The Baha 4 Sound Processors exceeded my expectations! The outdoor use is better because it turns down the wind volume. You can still hear the wind is there, but it’s massively reduced. It’s much improved.”
