Introduction
The SurfLink Remote Microphone is designed
to stream remote microphone audio directly to your
900MHz wireless hearing instruments. When worn
by a distant speaker in noisy environments, SurfLink
Remote Microphone functions as an assistive listening
device.
Streaming – Audio or sound transmitted from
SurfLink Remote Microphone to your 900MHz wireless
hearing instruments.

instruments, open second
hearing instrument battery
door, insert battery and
close battery door. Green
LED pulses to confirm
successful sync.
4.Each hearing instrument
should automatically start
streaming audio. Blue

clothing, within 8 inches
(20cm) of their mouth is
recommended for best
performance.
6.To stop streaming, turn
off SurfLink Remote
Microphone.

Operation
Operation
Low Battery and Charging
10
If SurfLink Remote Microphone is on and enters
a low battery condition, the LED slowly pulses
red and provides an audible indicator tone to a
hearing instrument. The indicator tone is distinctly
different from the low battery indicator for a hearing
instrument, so there is no confusion as to which is
experiencing a low battery condition. Once SurfLink
Remote Microphone enters a low battery condition,
the indicator tone will occur about every 5 minutes
until SurfLink Remote Microphone automatically shuts
down, or until a power source is applied.
When SurfLink Remote Microphone is attached to a
power source, charging automatically begins. While
SurfLink Remote Microphone is off, the LED turns
solid green during charging and turns off when fully
charged. While SurfLink Remote Microphone is on,
the LED prioritizes streaming by slowly pulsing blue,
but continues charging in the background.
TIP – Charging SurfLink Remote Microphone can take
longer while streaming audio. Charging will be faster
when the SurfLink Remote Microphone is off.
Typical Charging Method
To charge the battery,
attach the microUSB end
of the charging cable to the
microUSB jack on SurfLink
Remote Microphone.
Operation
Attach the USB end of
the charging cable to a
female USB jack, such as
found on a plugged-in wall
power adapter, car charger
adapter or computer.
11
Car Charger Adapter
The SurfLink Remote
Microphone can be charged
using a car charger adapter.
These adapters can be
obtained from your hearing
professional (ask for part
#52869-000).
Operation
Power On/Off Slider
Power On – Move the slider
toward the microUSB end to
turn on. The LED turns green
for 2 seconds to verify power
is on.
Power Off – To stop streaming
audio, move the slider away
from the microUSB end until
the brightly colored surface is
exposed. The LED turns red for
2 seconds to verify power is off.
12
Syncing to Hearing Instruments
Syncing establishes a relationship between your
hearing instruments and SurfLink Remote Microphone.
For hearing instruments to receive streamed audio
from SurfLink Remote Microphone, you must first
sync the hearing instruments with SurfLink Remote
Microphone. You only have to sync SurfLink Remote
Microphone with your hearing instruments once, as
they will automatically link when both are powered on
and they are within wireless operating range.
Operation
To put SurfLink Remote
Microphone into an
active syncing state,
press the “Sync” icon
on the Power On/Off
slider for 5 seconds
until the LED starts
rapidly blinking blue. To sync a hearing instrument
with SurfLink Remote Microphone, open your hearing
instrument battery door, insert a battery, and close
your hearing instrument battery door.
13
The SurfLink Remote Microphone remains in an active
syncing state for up to 20 seconds (concluded by red
LED blink), or until one hearing instrument is synced
with it (confirmed by a green LED blink).
Operation
After a successful hearing instrument syncing, SurfLink
Remote Microphone continues in an active syncing
state for another 20 seconds (concluded by red
LED blink), or until the second hearing instrument is
synced with it (confirmed by green LED blink).
After successful syncing, each hearing instrument
should automatically start streaming audio. If syncing
did not yield the desired result, then repeat the
process.
To cancel syncing mode, turn off and then turn on
SurfLink Remote Microphone.
The SurfLink Remote Microphone can be synced with
at most one left and one right hearing instrument at
a time. When hearing instruments are synced with
SurfLink Remote Microphone, any previously synced
hearing instruments will be automatically deleted.
14
Built-In Microphones
Depending on SurfLink Remote Microphone’s physical
orientation, it automatically adjusts the microphone
settings to either “Focus” (directional) or “Surround”
(omni-directional).
Operation
“Focus” – When SurfLink
Remote Microphone is
body worn, it automatically
prioritizes sound from above
while reducing sound levels
from other directions. This is
useful for listening to a single
speaker when background noise
is present.
“Surround” – When SurfLink
Remote Microphone is placed
horizontally (on its clip),
it receives sound from all
directions. This setting is useful
for listening to multiple nearby
speakers in quiet environments.
TIP – In noisy environments, move SurfLink Remote
Microphone as close as possible to sound source.

clothing or worn on a lanyard. For better performance,
SurfLink Remote Microphone should be within 8 inches
(20cm) of the speaker’s mouth.
Clip – Gently press the clip
as shown. Slide clip opening
onto clothing and release
clip. Ensure SurfLink Remote
Microphone is securely affixed
to clothing.
1.Gently press the clip
as shown.
2.Insert lanyard loop into
clip opening and lift
loop toward top of clip.
Release clip. Ensure the
lanyard is securely attached to
SurfLink Remote Microphone.

Operation
Lanyard (optional) –
2
Lanyards can be obtained from your hearing
professional (ask for part #53262-000).
TIP – To achieve better signal-to-noise performance,
a hearing professional can adjust (mute or attenuate)
your hearing instrument microphones during SurfLink
Remote Microphone use.
17
Streaming Audio
Operation
After SurfLink Remote Microphone powers on,
it automatically begins streaming audio to synced
hearing instruments. The LED slowly pulses blue to
confirm that audio streaming is active and SurfLink
Remote Microphone’s battery is operational.
When SurfLink Remote Microphone is turned off,
it automatically stops streaming audio.
18
The user can adjust streamed audio volume level
via their hearing instruments. The SurfLink Remote
Microphone does not contain an integrated volume
control.
TIP – Try placing SurfLink Remote Microphone near
a television. To achieve a comfortable listening level,
adjust the SurfLink Remote Microphone distance
from the television speakers or modify the television
volume level.
Interoperability with Other Accessories
If you also use a SurfLink Mobile, then phone
call streaming will take priority over the SurfLink
Remote Microphone audio stream. When a SurfLink
Mobile phone call stream ends, SurfLink Remote
Microphone’s audio stream automatically returns to
a hearing instrument.
SurfLink Remote Microphone streamed audio is
equal in priority to SurfLink Media streamed audio
with preference being given to the first available
audio source.
Operation
If you use a SurfLink Remote or SurfLink Mobile, then
remote control commands will continue to be sent to
your hearing instruments.
