For an auditory scanner, comfy headphones/earbuds are a necessity. So, after a year or so of searching I have finally found some headphones for Mac that we LOVE.
Airdrives earphones sit outside the ear. They are discreet, they allow you to hear everything else going on around you and they don’t pose a risk to your ear if the sound is turned up too high – something Mac can’t do anything about if the volume is accidently turned up.
Now for the slightly disappointing news.
I haven’t been able to find them in Australia. I purchased ours from Amazon in the USA and had a friend to send them to me for Mac in time for Christmas. A bit of fiddling around but SOOO worth it.
We have added an extension lead to Mac’s airdrives so he can be a fair way away from his device. It is just a Smiggle headphone hub we had ‘kicking around’ the house – but works a treat. The Smiggle hub has two audio outlets so he could have his communication partner listening in to his auditory cues with their own headphones to check they are all working if needed.
Now, I just need to have some sort of transmitter to make them wireless to his communication devices… I know, I know… I am never satisfied.
