External Microphone Setup Instructions

If your testing requires the use of a Class II microphone, the external microphone allows you to perform a compliant ambient noise scan of your testing area. This ensures that your patients are taking the test in an environment that adheres to the MPANL (Maximum Permissible Ambient Noise Level) limits that you set in the Test Type configuration screen.

Note: when performing a room scan, ensure that your microphone is unobstructed and use the supplied iPad stand.

The following steps will activate your external microphone for use with your SHOEBOX Audiometry system.

Note: To use the External Microphone, your iPad must be running on iOS 12 or later. For information on how to upgrade iOS on your iPad to the most current version, please visit https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT204204

  1. From the SHOEBOX home page, tap "Settings"
  2. Tap "Hardware"
  3. Tap the + symbol. This will bring up the “Add Hardware” window

  4. Tap on the “Microphone” panel. This will bring up the “Add Microphone” window

  5. On the “Add Microphone” window, enter the serial number of the microphone you will be using with your SHOEBOX system, and then tap the microphone’s serial number on the list below to ensure the microphone is selected (green checkmark appears next to it). Once that’s done, tap on “Add Microphone”

  6. Your microphone will now be listed under “Active Hardware”
