The PE600E emitter panel covers areas up to 4,000 sq. ft. in an elliptical pattern. Greater coverage can be achieved by daisy-chaining additional emitter panels. The PE600E is transmitting on the interference-free frequencies of 2.3 and 2.8 MHz and can also be used for stereo transmission. Emitter panels are available in black and white.
Phonic Ear offers two styles of receivers with the StarSound 600 system. The PE602R and PE601R headset receivers operates on two AAA alkaline batteries, have 360 degrees reception and are hearing aid compatible. The PE602R is a two-channel headset, so users can choose from two simultaneous programs. The PE601R is a stereo headset receiver. The body worn PE600R receiver (discontinued) allows the user to choose between two different programs. It can be used with a variety of separate listening options. Unlike the heavier headset/receiver combination, the lightweight listening options ensure comfort no matter how long the listeners wear the system. The PE600R operates on two AA alkaline batteries or two NiCad rechargeable batteries. The PE300C 12-pocket charger makes a convenient carry case/accessories organizer for portable applications.
