If you’ve purchased a new hearing aid in the last couple of years, there is a chance that it has Bluetooth functionality. Although Bluetooth was initially created for use with cellular phones, its uses have evolved to include home phones, TVs and computers. If your hearing aid features Bluetooth, you can interact with these products in new and practical ways, allowing you to enjoy superior hearing.
If your hearing aid comes with Bluetooth technology, its likely that it came with a tiny external device that lets you gain access to its functions. This control may be placed around the neck or carried in your pocket. The controller is used to wirelessly receive sounds from Bluetooth enabled devices and transmit them to your hearing aid. You can use this feature to enjoy your TV or cellphone without having to turn up the volume. You can even use Bluetooth to listen to telephone conversations in both ears, making it even easier to hear.
Your Bluetooth controller will be developed for easy use. Most controllers pick up on Bluetooth signals at the push of a button. Talking on a mobile phone or listening to an audio player that uses Bluetooth is equally as straightforward – just push a button to connect and press it again to stop. Your hearing aid manufacturer may have integrated other functions with this device, making it easy to access other benefits with one controller.
Hearing aids with a Bluetooth feature can help keep older people with mobility challenges safe and comfortable. Recent models make it possible to connect to devices that are as much as 30 feet away, meaning that you can place or answer a telephone call without needing to stand up from a chair. In an emergency, this feature could be lifesaving.
Bluetooth-enabled hearing aid provide a high-quality listening experience which is difficult or impossible to imitate using any other technology solution. Bluetooth is straightforward and has a big impact on your ability to hear, allowing you to hear things you never thought would be possible.
