A hearing instrument isn’t the only important instrument in your life. Mobile phones, MP3 players, PCs, and television are likely part of your everyday routine. SoundGate helps you hear them all—right through your hearing aids.
Your hearing instruments already help you hear sounds coming from different sources. But imagine if your favorite music wasn’t playing from 10 feet away — it’s streaming directly into your hearing aids. That’s the concept behind the SoundGate device. It’s like having personal speakers for your ears.
The wireless hub for your hearing instruments®
The heart of our wireless system, SoundGate is the digital “go-between” connecting external devices with your hearing instruments. It’s a small, portable accessory that turns your hearing aids into personal “speakers” for the TV, your phone, or in assistive listening environments.
Built for Bluetooth®
For example, SoundGate allows you to connect with any device that’s already Bluetooth® enabled – like your mobile phone or a digital audio player. Just click a button on SoundGate to transmit the audio through your hearing aids. You keep the SoundGate device in your pocket or wear it around your neck so its microphone can pick up your voice for hands-free phone calls.
The convenience of remote control
It’s possible to change programs and volume levels with a discrete click of a button instead of reaching for the controls on your hearing aids themselves.
Connect to Other External Devices
SoundGate works as an interface between Bluetooth®-enabled devices like mobile phones or many digital music players. But you can connect to other audio sources that aren’t Bluetooth®-compatible using SoundGate and optional accessories.
