The Oticon Epoq Streamer is a body-worn device and a gateway to connecting your hearing instruments to the expanding world of electronic media. The Streamer enables signals from modern communication devices, such as mobile phones, to be streamed wirelessly into your hearing instruments.

If you have two hearing instruments, the sound will be directed to both ears.

This solution gives you the world’s smallest hands-free headset and personal headphones for many listening and communication purposes.

The Streamer uses Bluetooth and will support connectivity with most Bluetooth enabled sound sources in the market and thus, allows you to:

  • use a mobile phone fully hands-free
  • listen to music and audio from the radio, computer, portable music players (e.g. mp3 players)

You can also use the Streamer as a remote control to adjust the volume in the hearing instruments. (text courtesy of Oticon.com)
