Keep up with confidence

Hearing the voice of the teacher in noisy classrooms and lecture halls can be a challenge for children and teenagers. Amigo FM is designed to help them overcome the effects of distance and noise, so they can catch as much instruction as possible.

One complete integrated classroom FM system

Oticon’s Amigo FM system bridges the distance between teacher and child and significantly improves the signal-to-noise level by sending the signal directly to the child’s ears.

The FM system comprises:
• A microphone
• A transmitter
• A receiver.

With an FM system, the teacher wears a microphone to capture their voice, and the signal is then sent via the transmitter to the receiver, which is placed either on the child’s hearing aids or on Streamer Pro

Using Streamer Pro
If you use ConnectLine a wide range of FM receivers can be connected directly to the Streamer Pro, streaming FM to both ears with only one receiver. We recommend that you use the Amigo FM receiver.

Sensei - the ideal FM partner

Integrated into Oticon Sensei, VoicePriority i ™ automatically adjusts the gain of the incoming FM signal to optimise the signal to noise level at your child’s ear. This advanced adaptive FM strategy instantly responds to changing noise levels, ensuring consistent speech recognition wherever your child is located. And the more children understand, the better their learning opportunities.

Children acquire significant learning from each other during class – both from direct conversations and from incidental learning. With VoicePriority i the teacher’s voice is amplified without compromising relevant information from the child’s surroundings. To make sure that students avoid missing out on any words when shifting attention between the teacher and a fellow student, Voice Priority i activates and deactivates almost instantaneously, depending on the noise level at the child’s ear.

Amigo FM transmitters

Teachers want to spend their time teaching – not trying to decipher complex FM systems. Amigo transmitters make life easy. They simply turn on the transmitter, clip on the microphone and begin teaching. The transmitters send the teacher’s voice directly to the pupil, overcoming the effects of noise, distance and reverberation that can make it hard for children to hear.
