baha-5-sound-processor-fm-radio-compatibleQuestion: Can my child use a FM System with the Baha 5 Sound Processor? ~Jane

Answer: Dear Jane,

What a great question! We know that when you are considering the Baha System for your child, you want to be confident your child will hear their best during the school year. Yes, your child is able to use a FM System and other Assistive Listening Devices (ALD’s) with the Baha 5 Sound Processor.

To access FM/ALD systems, you use the Cochlear Wireless Mini Microphone and connect it via a 3.5 mm audio cable to the FM/ALD receiver. This will allow you to stream the FM signal wirelessly to the sound processor. The FM/ALD receiver and Mini Microphone can be placed anywhere within range of the sound processor.

Thanks for your question Jane!  We hope you and others find this information helpful.
