Enjoy clear conversation among the crowd

With the brand new ConnectLine Microphone, users can finally participate and interact in some of life’s most important situations – on equal terms with everyone else.

Demanding listening situations such as crowded or noisy environments can often make understandable communication impossible for hearing instrument users.

They will typically develop different coping strategies to handle such situations or try to avoid them all together. ConnectLine Microphone changes this.

ConnectLine Microphone (requires Streamer version 1.4) is a discreet microphone that connects wirelessly to the Streamer and lets users enjoy clear and private one-to-one communication in challenging listening environments.

Listening performance is dramatically improved where one-to-one conversations before were difficult or even impossible.

How ConnectLine Microphone works

The discreet microphone is worn by the user’s conversation partner and connects wirelessly to the Streamer, allowing the user to hear the other person’s voice clear and loud directly through their hearing instruments.

ConnectLine Microphone picks up the partner’s voice, filters out surrounding noise and transmits wirelessly, directly to the Streamer at a distance of up to 15 meters.

Signs and Causes of Hearing Loss in Children

Today infant hearing screenings can often detect a problem before your baby leaves the hospital. However, if your baby passes this initial screening, you may see signs of possible hearing loss at a later time. It is important to observe your child’s behavior at each milestone of their development. If you see your child isn’t reaching those milestones, discuss it with your pediatrician. Identifying abnormalities in early phases of development plays a central role for early detection of a hearing impairment.

Types and Causes of Hearing Loss: Most of us take our hearing for granted, however hearing is a complex system involving more than just the ears. The path from the outer ear to the brain is a long one and damage to any part along the way can lead to hearing loss.

Three distinct types of hearing loss:

1. Conductive hearing loss: hearing loss resulting from some mechanical problem in the outer or middle ear that prevents sounds from being conducted into the inner ear. Conductive hearing loss decreases the loudness of sounds, but generally does not cause

distortion or negatively affect the clarity of sound. Many conductive hearing losses can be corrected medically. If left untreated, however, conductive hearing loss may lead to a more permanent hearing loss.

2. Sensorineural hearing loss: hearing loss resulting from damage to the inner ear and/or the hearing pathway to the brain. Not only does sensorineural hearing loss decrease the loudness of sounds, it can also create a loss of clarity which effects speech understanding. Sensorineural hearing loss is typically permanent and cannot be corrected medically. Most people with sensorineural hearing loss are excellent candidates for hearing instruments.

3. Mixed hearing loss: combination of both conductive and sensorineural components.

Causes of hearing loss

There are many causes of childhood hearing loss. The primary factors are high-risk pregnancies, various infectious diseases, taking certain medications, alcohol or drug abuse during pregnancy. And, although less common, hereditary irregularities and infant

meningitis are also possible causes.

Risk factors which can play a role before, during or shortly after birth:

• Weight at birth below 1500g (3.3 lbs) and/or birth before the 32nd week of pregnancy

• Lack of oxygen or respiratory standstill

• Administration of ototoxic medicines (loop diuretics, aminoglycosides)

• Mechanical birth injuries

In approximately 50% of all children with hearing loss, the hearing loss occurs after birth. Examples are:

• Babies and children afflicted with bacterial meningitis or encephalitis

• After severe cases of measles or mumps

• After accidents or physical trauma

• Following chemotherapy

• After chronic ear inflammations

• Children who suffer from certain syndromes

Hearing loss can also exist in:

• Children with minor and severe middle ear malformations

• Children with cerebral motor disturbances

• Children in whom speech does not develop, or ceases to develop beyond a certain point

• Children exhibiting abnormal behavior, such as being very loud, aggressive or completely still If you think your child might have hearing loss, you should visit your pediatrician who can do a basic examination and recommend a course of action, if necessary.

Thanks to the growing use of newborn hearing screening programs, hearing loss can often be detected before you and your baby leave the hospital. If your baby passes this initial screening, you may notice signs of possible hearing loss at a later time. It is important to see if your child reaches the standard milestones at each stage of development. If you see your child isn’t reaching those milestones, you should discuss it with your pediatrician. Close observation of a child by his/her parents in the early

phases of development plays a central role for early detection of a hearing impairment.
