Hope someone can help here.Is there anyone out there that uses a electronic stethoscope with their implant and if so how do they do it? There's one from Think  Labs that looks quite good and my audiologist tells me that I have to hook it up to the roger Pen that I have. However, I can't say I'm very impressed with the sound quality of the Roger. Has anyone some alternative ways of hooking up to an electronic stethoscope?

Hi @karenRS and welcome to HearPeers.  We do have several stethoscope users.  Which processor are you using?

People seem to prefer using the direct audio input cable (red jack) which mixes the audio 90/10 (stethoscope/Sonnet mic).  It plugs into the FM Sonnet battery cover that has 3 holes on the bottom for the jack.

 

If you use the search feature here and type in stethoscope, posts discussing that will show up.

 

If you type @ and then the member’s name (no space), a window will pop up and let you tag them.  Successful tags display in blue.

Thank you very much for your help. I haven't got the FM batter pack cover so it looks like I will have to get one I only have the Roger Pen and audiolink and I can't say I impressed with those.

The sound quality of the DAI red jack cable is excellent.

I also have Roger tech, AudioLink and DAI red jack cables.

I think you will like the sound quality of the DAI cable.  I don’t like the yellow jack cable (50/50 mix) but I do like the red jack cable (90/10).

It comes in two styles (unilateral and bilateral).

@Esteban is a pro at using a stethoscope with the DAI red jack cable.

Here is a link to his wonderful guest article.

@karenRS, @Mary Beth.

 

I use the stethoscope with the DAI red jack cable and the audio quality is really much better, I would even tell you that better than a bluetooth connection. I suggest you look for a stethoscope with generic audio output and always use it with the DAI red.
