ConnectClip is an additional accessory available for purchase with compatible Oticon brand hearing aids. ConnectClip allows you to turn compatible Oticon hearing aids into a wireless stereo headset, so you can make hands-free phone calls and stream music from your smartphone.1
Using ConnectClip’s remote microphone functionality, you can also listen to someone speaking from a distance.1 It is useful for listening situations where the speaker cannot maintain a close distance, such as in a lecture, meeting or presentation, speeches at a wedding or celebration, inside a car or for home listening from a distance.
ConnectClip is not compatible with certain hearing aid manufacturer models.2
How to use ConnectClip as a remote microphone
- Pick up your ConnectClip accessory and hold the power button for 3 seconds to turn it on and make the accessory discoverable by your hearing aids. A green light will illuminate and remain stable. A yellow light will illuminate and begin to flash to indicate ConnectClip’s discoverability.
- Place your ConnectClip down beside your hearing aids.
- Open your hearing aid battery doors to switch both hearing aids off for one second each. Close the battery doors to switch them back on.
- Look at the lights on your ConnectClip. The flashing yellow light should stabilise and stop flashing.
- When the yellow light has stabilised and you see the stable yellow and green lights, hold the power button on your ConnectClip for 3 seconds. The yellow light will turn a pinkish purple.
- Your ConnectClip is now connected as a remote microphone to your hearing aids.
- Give ConnectClip to the person you wish to hear speaking from a distance. The ConnectClip should then be clipped onto the person’s clothing at around chest height.
- Insert your hearing aids according to manufacturer instructions. You will now be able to listen to the speaker directly in your hearing aids.
- To turn off the ConnectClip, hold the power button for 3 seconds until the pinkish purple light goes off.
