Calling all audiologists, school personnel, parents and caregivers!
The Cochlear™ Nucleus® CR230 and the Cochlear Wireless Mini Microphone 2/2+
The Cochlear Nucleus CR230 Remote Assistant communicates wirelessly with the Cochlear™ Kanso™ and Nucleus® 6 Sound Processors, allowing recipients to control, monitor and manage their hearing by making adjustments to their sound processor.
The Cochlear™ Wireless Mini Microphone 2 and 2+ take hearing to another level by streaming audio directly to the sound processor(s).
Each is great on its own, but when used together for pediatrics, this pair becomes a power couple!
Easily start and stop streaming
Is the child’s Kanso or Nucleus 6 sound processor button(s) locked? No worries, the CR230 Remote Assistant can be used to start and stop streaming from a paired Mini Microphone 2 or 2+. Simply press and hold the left side button on the Remote Assistant until the icon appears:
Alternatively, when multiple wireless devices are paired to the processor, from the Home screen, press the right arrow button until you see the Stream selector screen, then scroll down to select the Mini Mic and press OK.
To stop streaming, either short-press the left side button on the CR230, or select OFF on the Stream selector screen, then press OK.
Use Advanced Mode to view the Advantage
The CR230 Remote Assistant has both a Simple Mode, which allows access to daily use functions most used by recipients and caregivers, as well as an Advanced Mode, for additional control and monitoring options. The CR230 Remote Assistant operates in Simple Mode by default. To access Advanced Mode, press and hold the OK button, then use the down arrow button to highlight Advanced Mode and press OK to select. A brief pop-up message will appear to confirm your selection.
Activate streaming from the Mini Microphone 2 or 2+ to the sound processor, then use the right arrow button to navigate to the Settings menu and press OK to enter.
The Accessory Mix can be adjusted to focus more on the accessory (higher number) or more on sounds entering the processor’s microphones (lower number).
The MM Advantage screen allows you to compare the signal level received from the sound processor microphones with the signal received from the Mini Microphone 2 or 2+.
Hint: when demonstrating in the clinic, have the child’s caregiver watch the CR230’s screen as you get further away while wearing the Mini Microphone 2 or 2+.
Note: when using an FM receiver plugged into the Mini Microphone 2+, the above screen will still show MM advantage, since the Mini Microphone 2+ is streaming the signal received at the FM receiver from the FM transmitter. When using an FM receiver plugged directly into the CP910 sound processor, the above screen will be labeled FM Advantage.
