Watching the morning news over coffee, listening to music while jogging, connecting with grandkids over video chat—technology is deeply woven into the fabric of modern living. For example, today’s hearing aids now use Bluetooth® technology to wirelessly stream sound from your favorite devices directly to your hearing aid—no intermediary device needed. You can also pair your hearing aids with multiple devices and switch over whenever you need to.
You can pair your hearing aids with practically any device with Bluetooth capability: cell phones, tablets, TVs, and laptops. Once connected, your hearing aids allow you:
- Stream music during workouts (no headphones or earbuds needed!)
- Stream TV and phone calls with minimal sound distortion/feedback
- Adjust hearing aid programs and settings right from your phone or tablet
Although newer hearing aid technology is typically highly effective, it’s common for a whistling sound to accompany sound processed from mobile phones. Bluetooth hearing aids solve this problem because they wirelessly receive the signal directly from a device (e.g., a mobile phone) for processing and deliver it directly to the hearing aid, thereby bypassing ambient audio signals in the room. Bluetooth technology also allows the small components inside the hearing aids to communicate, creating a more coordinated and clearer auditory experience digitally.
