Oticon’s Child-Specific Hearing Aid: The Safari

Updated November 3, 2016 – Oticon Safari hearing aids, are the company’s child-specific hearing devices. The Oticon hearing aids are designed to address the needs of infants, toddlers, and teens. Oticon knows that hearing plays a crucial role in social, emotional, and academic development. That is why they developed the Safari hearing aids, which are reliable, easy-to-use, and comfortable to wear.

Providing children with hearing is incredibly important for numerous reasons. The child’s ability to hear determines when, and if, they reach several developmental milestones. These include jumping after loud sounds, or becoming quiet when hearing familiar voices. Infant bonding occurs when they hear his or her parents’ voices. Additionally, children need to be able to hear words before they can be expected to speak them properly.

Available in three different performance levels, the lightweight and ergonomically-designed Behind-The-Ear (BTE) hearing aids are designed to deliver excellent performance. The devices are also available in Power, and Super Power models, to deliver hearing to those with more severe hearing losses.

The Safari hearing aids are compatible with a variety of Oticon hearing aid accessories that can help provide enhanced hearing in a variety of ways. These accessories are easy to use, especially for older children or teenagers.

Streamer
This is a small, lightweight device that can be worn around the user’s neck, so it is always within reach. It connects the user’s Safari hearing aids to Oticon’s ConnectLine solutions, telephones, or other electronic devices. When used with a phone, users can use his or her hearing aids as wireless ear pieces for making hands-free phone calls. With the ability to switch between multiple electronic devices, users can listen to the audio of several devices without having to reconnect. The Streamer also acts as a remote control, allowing users to make convenient adjustments to his or her hearing aid’s basic settings.

ConnectLine Microphone
This is a small and discreet microphone that is worn by the individual the Safari hearing aid is speaking with. With its built-in noise-cancelling technology, the microphone filters out background noise so it is less audible to the hearing aid wearer. This device can help make conversations much easier, particularly conversations in noisy environments. This device transmits audio up to 15 yards away.

ConnectLine TV Adapter
This device is designed to connect to the audio output of just about any television. When it is in use, the device streams audio wirelessly to the user’s hearing aids in stereo sound (heard in both ears). This device lets users watch television at the appropriate volume for them, while their friends and family watch at a volume that is comfortable for them. With a range of up to 30 feet, the device allows users to hear the television’s audio even if they have to leave the room.

ConnectLine Phone Adapter
This device connects to the user’s standard landline telephone, allowing it to act as a wireless Bluetooth mobile phone. The device delivers the phone’s signal to the user’s Streamer. The Streamer then allows users to answer the phone from anywhere within the Phone Adapter’s 30 foot radius.

Amigo
The Amigo is a classroom FM system designed to deliver an enhanced listening experience to children in numerous situations. Composed of an FM transmitter and receiver, this system delivers clear audio from a teacher, speaker, parent, or coach, directly to the Safari hearing aids. The system is easy to use. The speaking party wears a microphone and an FM transmitter, while the student wears the FM receiver. When the speaker talks, their audio is streamed directly to the user’s hearing aids, where is it picked up by the FM receiver, and amplified in the child’s ear.
