The benefits of Bluetooth & Wireless Connectivity in Hearing Aids

Some of the great Sci-Fi movies from the 80’s and 90’s portrayed the 2000’s as a time of advanced technology that made the lives of so many people easier. They didn’t get everything right (like flying cars or self-drying jackets), but technology today has come on in leaps and bounds. Hearing Aids are no exception, with exciting advancements being made every day. Hearing devices have gotten smaller, smarter, sleeker, and more sophisticated. Did you know your hearing aids are full of programs and settings that make life easier for anyone with hearing loss?

Connectivity Features

Bluetooth technology is a completely wireless platform that facilitates data transfer between devices. Portable speakers connect to smartphones in this way, and many of today’s car stereos, computers, TVs, and music players can be paired with your smartphone using this technology.

But now this has extended to include your hearing aids!

In the past, if you wanted to listen to a playlist during your morning exercise routine, you’d have to take out your hearing aids and replace them with earbuds. You’d struggle with the reduced quality, and worry that you weren’t able to hear any of the sounds around you without your hearing aids. Today, you can use Bluetooth technology to seamlessly connect your hearing aids to the devices you use the most.

Made for iPhone hearing aids use Bluetooth to connect your devices to your iPhone. You’re able to stream music and audio from your phone to your hearing aids with a single tap and experience the world in a whole new way. Android users can also access Bluetooth technology with certain manufacturers like Phonak and Unitron allowing you to talk handsfree from your phone.

Better Sound Quality for Music and Calls

When you use Bluetooth enabled hearing aids, you’ll experience the best in sound quality. Because you’re able to stream audio right to your ears, you won’t hear any whistling or feedback and can focus on what you’re trying to hear.

Hearing with Both Ears

Another benefit of wireless technology is binaural hearing. This means your two hearing aids can communicate with each other. You may hear a sound on one side, and the aid will adjust automatically to help you pick up the voice out of background sound. You’ll enjoy higher quality speech and improved localization of sounds. Binaural hearing also allows you to hear phone conversations in both ears, so you won’t need to worry about straining to hear the person on the other end of the line.

Remote Control

Using a smartphone app, you’re able to switch between programs, change the settings, and adjust the volume all from the palm of your hand. Not only is this more comfortable that fiddling with tiny buttons on the outside of your hearing aids, but it also allows for more discreet changes, and no one around you will notice that you’re adjusting your devices.
