Oticon announced a newly upgraded Streamer Pro 1.2 that will enable hearing instrument users to more effectively participate in many everyday activities from making phone calls to watching TV. Streamer Pro 1.2 is worn around the neck and acts as intermediary device to connect Bluetooth™-enabled devices to Oticon hearing instruments. Streamer Pro 1.2 can now also connect to iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch® via the Oticon ConnectLine App that was introduced at 2014 AudiologyNOW!. The new connectivity solution will be available to existing and future users of Oticon wireless hearing instruments across the price spectrum, including an installed base of approximately two million current users.
