Wireless freedom. No strings attached

Get closer to the sounds and experiences that matter. Join work meetings and classroom discussions. Watch TV and talk on the phone.

Hands-free voice and music streaming: The Cochlear Wireless Phone Clip

Adults and children can leave their phone in their pocket and enjoy the convenience of hands-free calling with the Cochlear Phone Clip.

It’s small and lightweight. Adults and children can clip it to their clothing and take it wherever they go so they can:

  • Stream phone calls wirelessly to their sound processor.
  • Listen to music or videos from their smartphone or tablet.
  • Use their smartphone’s voice command.

Smartphone compatibility

If an adult or child has a Nucleus 7, Kanso 2 or a Baha 5 Sound Processor and a compatible smartphone, they can stream sound directly to the sound processor.

If an adult or child doesn't have a compatible smartphone or device, they can stream phone calls, music and more to the Nucleus 7 or Kanso 2 Sound Processor by using the True Wireless Phone Clip.

Don't miss moment: Mini Microphone 2+

Whether in a lecture hall, a yoga class, an office meeting or on a football field, the Mini Microphone transmits speech and sound to the sound processor. Adults and children can hear more clearly, no matter where they are.

One-on-one

Adults and children can clip a Mini Microphone 2+ to their companion’s collar when they're dining at a restaurant, or parents can give it to their child’s teacher during lesson time.

Group conversations

Place a Mini Microphone 2+ in the centre of a meeting room at work, or in a child’s classroom for group games and learning. A Cochlear implant with a Mini Microphone2+ can create an effective classroom kit.

The Mini Microphone 2+ also offers connectivity to audio sources such as TV, Hi-Fi, loop systems and FM systems.

Enjoy caption-free viewing: TV Streamer

Experience TV without turning the volume to uncomfortable levels for others. With the Cochlear Wireless TV Streamer, an adult or child can set their own personal volume and transmit sound to their sound processor.

"I can hear with the Baha technology, but with the True Wireless technology I can hear even better."
