The smart mic option for the Comtek receiver optimizes the performance of the Comtek AT-216 wireless auditory assistance system in a classroom environment. When the teacher begins to speak through the M-216 transmitter, the PR-216 receiver's Smart-Mic automatically prioritizes the teacher's voice over environmental sounds. When the teacher is not speaking, the Smart-Mic immediately activates the environmental microphone on the PR-216 receiver to allow fellow students' comments and questions to be heard.
The Comtek AT-216 wireless auditory assistance kit is an extended-fidelity FM system bringing out speech clarity like never before. Incorporating special noise reduction circuitry to increase the speech clarity of the FM signal, this system is specially designed to take advantage of today's digital hearing aid technology. It works as a remote microphone, overcoming common listening problems for those with hearing loss: background noise, reverberation and distance from the speaker.
A higher signal-to-noise ratio plus a higher frequency response of the FM signal work together to maximize the performance of hearing aids, cochlear implants, and earphones. In addition to t-coil hearing aids, the user wears the personal receiver and neckloop. If hearing aids are not used, the receiver and headphones may be used instead of the neckloop.
What is an FM system?
FM systems transmit sound via radio waves (frequency modulation) from the speaker's microphone to the listener's portable receiver.
