Using Direct Audio Input

Using direct connection
with the FM Battery Pack Cover

FM receivers - Many FM receivers and direct-link devices with the standard 3-pin connector (e.g., Phonak MicroLink MLxS) can be used with the OPUS 2 FM battery pack cover. Turn the audio processor off, insert the receiver, and turn the processor back on. When the FM system is activated, the audio processor will automatically integrate the sound signal.

Audio Cables - Connect the 3-pin connector of the MED-EL Audio Cable (gray end) to the openings at the bottom of the FM battery pack cover. Mind the orientation of the three pins and do not use excessive force when connecting the cable. Connect the audio plug (yellow or red end) to the audio output of the battery-powered device.

TIP: Direct connections almost always provide a distortion-free, clear listening experience not limited by interference issues that telecoil accessories may sometimes encounter. However, FM systems themselves may be susceptible to interference from the FM signal.

Audio cables running from the processor can be somewhat restrictive since this is not a wireless option. Extensive use of audio cables can also slightly decrease processor battery life.

(NOTE: Telecoil is not needed when using direct-connect accessories or audio cables.)
