Flying is stressful. By the time you park at the airport, check your bags, go through security, find your gate, double-and triple-check you’re getting on the right plane, find your seat, and shove your carry-on into the overhead compartment, you’re exhausted. Thankfully, Cochlear™ technology can make the rest of your flight a pleasant experience. With the Mini Mic 2+ wireless accessory, you can stream audio from the in-flight entertainment system directly to your processor.

All you need is the line-in cable that was provided in the kit with your Mini Mic 2+ wireless accessory. Plug one end into the Mini Mic and the other end into the headphone jack of the entertainment system.

Turn your Mini Mic on, make sure it’s paired to your sound processor, and you should be all set! (Learn how to pair your Cochlear™ Nucleus® or Cochlear™ Baha® Device(s) with the Mini Mic 2+).

There are benefits to using the Mini Mic’s streaming capabilities:

1) Better sound quality

The direct wireless connection between your Mini Mic and your sound processor is designed to allow for the clearest, loudest sound available.

2) Cut out the sounds you don’t want to hear

Imagine boarding a nine-hour flight and realizing there’s a fussy infant in the seat right behind you. Before you sprint off the plane, consider this: with your sound processor and Mini Mic, you can cut out all environmental sounds and stream music or TV shows instead.

While everyone else on the flight is plugging their ears and silently begging for the child to fall asleep, you can listen to some peaceful songs or catch up on your favorite shows.

Now that your flights are filled with pleasant sounds, it’s time to think about the rest of your trip!
