Can I pair bilateral sound processors to my iPhone or iPod touch?

Yes. If you have bilateral sound processors, you need to pair both of your sound processors with your compatible Apple device. To do this, pair both sound processors at the same time (during the same pairing window), and ensure that they are correctly set up as a ‘left’ and a ‘right’ device.
