A lot is demanded of your child’s hearing when he or she starts school, especially in noisy environments and classrooms where it can be difficult for children with hearing loss to concentrate on the teacher’s voice.
With a suitable hearing aid, your child can easily follow what is being said, and actively contribute to classwork.
FM/DM Systems in Schools:
- Audio shoe – allows children to use an FM/DM* system at home or school.
- FM/DM system – enhances hearing in noisy environments like a classroom. A microphone worn by the speaker (teacher) transmits their voice directly to the receiver in the hearing aid over FM/DM radio waves.
- Make sure that all teachers and caregivers are aware of your child’s hearing needs. You should show them how to operate the hearing aid and FM/DM system, and
Signia offers pediatrics direct access to FM with their hearing instruments via Direct Audio Input (DAI) ready battery doors.

Wireless connection to electronic devices
All Signia hearing aids are FM-compatible when used with our easyTek™ and miniTek® audio streamers that allow wireless connection to smartphones, tablets, TVs, and gaming consoles.

Your miniTek can be connected to any standard FM receiver. This enables you to use FM systems even with hearing instruments which are not equipped with an audio shoe. FM systems help to improve speech understanding in difficult listening situations and are frequently used in schools.

- Turn the FM transmitter on.
- Connect the FM receiver with the DAI port of the miniTek.

Now you can hear sound from the FM transmitter through your hearing instruments.
The hearing instruments switch automatically to the telephone program when your phone rings and change back to the FM transmitter after terminating the call.
The easyTek™ App and touchControl™ App allow younger patients to simply and discreetly adjust their hearing aids’ volume, programs, microphone directionality, and other cool features right from their smartphones.
