At Associated Hearing Professionals, our patients can have the ability to stay connected with the world around them with the use of Bluetooth hearing aids. You may already use Bluetooth to stream music from your smartphone on your car stereo or take a call on a hands-free device. Now, you can do all that and more directly from your state-of-the-art hearing aids. Whether you’re considering hearing aids for the first time or planning to upgrade your current device, here’s what you need to know about the latest and greatest technology.
Benefits of Bluetooth Hearing Aids
Bluetooth hearing aids allow you to listen to phone calls as well as access your favorite playlists, podcasts, and books on tape directly to your hearing aids. This enhanced functionality can be especially great for those with active lifestyles, whether you’re jogging, working out, gardening, or enjoying the latest blockbuster movies. Stream content directly to your hearing aids, which can connect with any Bluetooth-enabled device, including smart TVs.
Hearing aids with Bluetooth let you customize your listening experience. For example, you can listen to music in one ear and remain aware of ambient sounds through the second hearing aid. Pair multiple devices and toggle between a phone call, a podcast, and the noises of the world around you. Many Bluetooth hearing aids can connect up to eight devices at once.
Bluetooth technology has been tested for decades and standardized to help protect your devices from interference and feedback. The protocol provides a direct connection with nearby devices without draining the battery of your hearing aids. Bluetooth is designed to use with devices in a short-range, like within your home.
Types of Bluetooth Hearing Aids
Some hearing aids offer universal connectivity, while others are specifically designed to pair with your iPhone and other iOS devices. Both versions come in a variety of designs, so most patients who need hearing aids can take advantage of the benefits of Bluetooth. Whether you prefer a discreet invisible in-the-ear hearing aid model or have severe to profound hearing loss requiring a behind-the-ear design, most modern hearing aids can be purchased or upgraded with Bluetooth. Our team can help you find the best hearing aids for your needs, including the latest models from trusted, high-quality brands such as Starkey, Lyric by Phonak, and ReSound.
