At one time hearing aids were notorious for limiting the wearer’s access to many of their personal audio devices such as their mobiles, music, and *TVs. An example of this would be wanting to listen to music while exercising. In the past you would’ve had to remove your hearing aids so that you could use a pair of earphones.
Today’s hearing aids make inconvenience a thing of the past. Technology has advanced to create hearing aids that are jam packed with sophisticated and powerful Bluetooth technology. This new addition means that it is now possible to connect your devices and stream sound directly to your hearing aids.
Advantage of Bluetooth hearing aids:
While using Bluetooth hearing aids the wearer can stream music and answer calls from iOS and Android devices straight through their hearing aids without any fussing with the devices themselves.
New levels of personalisation
The wearer can take control of their preferred listening levels by simply adjusting the volume of the Bluetooth hearing aids. Custom pre-sets for specific environments such as restaurants, theatre, sporting events etc. can be easily created to ensure the best possible listening experience no matter where you are.
Phone calls have never been easier
Bluetooth hearing aids automatically stream phone calls to both of your hearing aids so you can hear your calls in both ears at once. This once again eliminates any annoyance that would’ve previously occurred while trying to take calls with hearing aids not enhanced with Bluetooth technology.
What are the benefits of Bluetooth Hearing Aids?
Impressive Sound Quality
The increased resolution and advanced, natural sound quality of Bluetooth hearing aids results in a fantastic listening experience for the user. These types of hearing aids are hugely popular with theatre and opera enthusiasts as well as avid sports fans.
Depending on the type of Bluetooth hearing aid, they can help to localise sounds which allows the wearer to focus on voices and sounds right in front of them.
Bluetooth hearing aids can limit unwanted noise and reduce background noise in loud situations. This can allow you to focus on the conversations you want to hear rather than overwhelming ambient sounds. For a better quality of hearing, clarity is key.
Bluetooth hearing aids can help ease some of the symptoms associated with Tinnitus by playing calming sounds. The Phonak Bolero M70 hearing aid comes with Tinnitus Balance technology that amplifies a sound to balance Tinnitus symptoms. Read more about the best hearing aids for tinnitus support.
Bluetooth hearing aids have many advantages for various levels of hearing and due to their success, they continue to grow in popularity as hearing aid technology evolves. Hearing aids with Bluetooth capabilities allow the wearer to adapt to their surroundings and expand their ideal listening preference over time.
The aim of Bluetooth devices is to truly mimic the way a person with hearing loss would naturally listen.
*Depending on your devices and how you wish to use them, you may need a TV streamer accessory, such as the Phonak TV Connector for your Phonak hearing aids.
