SurfLink Mobile 2
The Surf/link Mobile 2 is probably the most advanced hearing aid accessory on the market from any manufacturer incorporating a host of features in one compact, easy to use and stylish device.
It works with Starkey’s Z Series hearing aid range and features a touch screen for ease of use. It includes the following features:
Bluetooth telephone and media streaming from bluetooth enabled mobile phones and tablets.
Remote Control functionality.
Directional or omnidirectional microphone.
Can be used as an assistive listening device.
Answer calls in stereo directly to your hearing aids using Starkey’s JustTalk technology. The SurfLink Mobile picks up Bluetooth signals from your compatible phone and streams them straight to both your hearing aids in crystal clear quality. It uses the microphones on the hearing aids to pick up your voice and transmit to the person at the other end of the telephone conversation.
SurfLink Mobile does not require the use of a device hung around your neck like most competitors, and can operate up to 5 meters away from your hearing aids (depending on function). The range from the phone to the SurfLink Mobile is up to 10 meters.
The device also operates as a remote control, allowing you to adjust various settings within your hearing aids such as volume and program changes.
Built in to the device is a set of directional microphones which can pick up speech and stream directly to your hearing aids in stereo. This is particularly useful in noisy situations or when in a cafe/restaurant. The device can be placed in the middle of the table in omnidirectional mode to pick up the full conversation going around the table, or placed in directional mode if you only wish to focus on a single person. Also useful for placing next to your television for easy listening at a softer TV volume.
