Bluetooth-Enabled Hearing Aids

Hearing aids have come a long way over the years. As with all forms of technology, new improvements are constantly being made and implemented, so you can live a more comfortable life.

One of the greatest advancements in hearing aids has been the ability to connect them to other devices. Hearing aids with Bluetooth connectivity allow you to sync to a TV, mobile phone, computer, or tablet, making it much easier to enjoy all forms of technology. Bluetooth is a standard for the short-range wireless interconnection of mobile phones, computers, and other electronic devices. This means that most of the electronics you already own should be equipped to work with your hearing aids.

Connecting Your Bluetooth Devices

Bluetooth capability allows for wearers to engage in normal activities without the wires. This includes talking on the phone, listing to music, watching videos, and much more. Depending on the device, there are also applications that you can use to simplify the process of connecting your devices. While “Made-for-iPhone” hearing aids provide wireless connectivity to most Bluetooth devices, this does not include Android phones. Thanks to compatible assistive listening devices, or streamers, users can connect their hearing aids to any Bluetooth enabled device with the use of a communication link. The streamers pair with the hearing aids and then can be paired to other external devices. These can be worn around the neck or even in the pocket of the user for hands-free use. One streamer usually allows for multiple devices to be paired, making it easier to switch between each individual device. This is important because more times than not, people use two hearing aids instead of one.

Bluetooth also gives you a more personal listening experience and allows for devices to match your unique hearing needs. All audio that streams to your devices from Bluetooth technology will be personalized to match your hearing loss settings, which gives you the best sound quality. If you need the volume louder in just one of your ears or need more amplification of high sounds in the other, it will match your hearing needs. For example, the user is able to control the TV volume from their hearing aids separately from the volume on the TV, which is nice for being around friends and family because it doesn’t affect their listening experience.

Bluetooth hearing aids will continue to grow in popularity, especially as the technology continues to evolve. Due to the demand for Bluetooth hearing aids continuing to grow, it’s plausible to expect the ability to connect to a wider range of devices over time. Additionally, apps will continue to offer improved functionality.

Be sure to talk to your hearing care professional to find out which hearing aids are best for you, as well as determining the settings that will get you the most out of your Bluetooth enabled devices.
