The way we interact, communicate and connect has changed significantly due to advances in technology. Hands free phone calls and direct media streaming have become an essential part of modern life and the prevalence of Bluetooth® technology has ensured the freedom to connect to the devices of our choice. We want technology to connect us with family and friends, and for it to integrate into our world in a simple and seamless way.
At Advanced Bionics, we believe that CI patients should be able to stream directly and call hands free from any device.
This is why Phonak and AB have developed Naída CI Connect, an elegant design-integrated solution for Naída CI Q90.
Now you can directly stream phone calls or your favorite music via Bluetooth without the hassle of a body-worn device.
With a simple plug-and-play TV Connector, you can stream the sound from your TV directly to your sound processor.
This allows you to seamlessly enjoy all of your phone calls, favorite music and TV programs.
With Naída CI Connect, you can hear the phone ringing directly in your processor. Pick up calls without touching your phone. Your Naída CI Q90 becomes a Bluetooth wireless headset with built-in microphones that picks-up your own voice for phone calls.
Free your hands and multitask!
Whatever type of phone you use, Naída CI Q90 connects to it. It works with Android, iOS and any feature phone.
And not just phones: Naída CI Q90 connects you to all Bluetooth-enabled tablets, laptops, and MP3 players*.
