Bluetooth is no longer just for the busy individual who needs to make hands free calls on the go. Now, hearing aid manufacturers continue to develop Bluetooth capabilities, so hearing devices can connect to smart devices while delivering quality audio.
The Basics Of Bluetooth Hearing Aids
Bluetooth technology offers a wireless connection between hearing aids and smart devices like iPhones, iPads, Androids, and more. Bluetooth devices previously required a separate adapter that was worn around the neck or carried around. Now their connectivity extends up to 30 feet and usually doesn’t require an adapter.
Bluetooth features include:
- Call answering and audio streaming
- Remote hearing aid adjustment through phone apps
- Adjustable volume, bass, and treble
- Background noise reduction Mic directionality
- Mic directionality
- Tinnitus therapy
Hearing Aid Styles And Bluetooth
Hearing Associates offer hearing aids styles, including:
- Completely-in-the-canal (CIC)
- In-the-canal (ITC)
- In-the-ear (ITE)
- Receiver-in-the-ear (RITE)
CIC, ITE, and IIC offer Bluetooth match capabilities. Technology continues to develop, and depending on your level of hearing loss, your audiologist may prescribe a specific style of hearing aid over another.
Benefits Of Bluetooth Hearing Aids
With Bluetooth hearing aids, you have more control over your hearing environments. Hearing aids no longer just amplify sound. You can adjust your hearing aids, listen to music, and track your health all with a single piece of technology.
You’ll have dependable, quality sound regardless of the media or atmosphere. Bluetooth hearing aids are also sleek and discreet. Some styles notify your hearing aids of low battery power and can also help you find a misplaced device.
