Hearing aids can improve your quality of life by delivering clear, crisp sound during conversations. Bluetooth™ technology allows you to get that same great sound quality when streaming content wirelessly from your electronic devices directly into your hearing aids.
It achieves this by using high-frequency radio waves that can safely transmit data between electronic devices. Bluetooth offers two radio options, Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). Because hearing aids are small and don’t have a lot of battery capacity, most use BLE to reduce power consumption while still delivering quality sound.
Makes Listening to Music Easier
Whether you’re at the gym or taking a walk through Skyline Park you can get sound quality that is significantly better than you would by using regular headphones. Not to mention that because hearing aids can double as a set of wireless earbuds, it reduces the need to frequently switch out your device throughout the day when you want to listen to your favorite songs.
Watching TV, Too
By streaming the TV audio directly to your hearing aids, you can eliminate any reverberation that can occur between the TV speakers and your ears. Many also give you the ability to adjust the TV volume for your hearing aids separately from the volume on the TV, which is helpful when watching with others who don’t have hearing loss.
Phone Conversations are Easier to Understand
Let’s be honest. Talking on your phone while wearing hearing aids can be a pain. It can be difficult to hear what the person on the other end of the line is saying and you can run into issues like feedback (whistling noise) if you hold the phone too close to your ear.
When you stream conversations directly into your hearing aids, you are able to hear phone conversations in both ears and experience much higher quality sound.
Personalized Listening Experience
Your hearing aids are designed to match your unique hearing needs. That means any sound that streams to your devices through Bluetooth technology will be personalized to match your hearing loss. This gives you the best sound quality and the ability to adjust as needed. You can do things like turn up or lower the volume in one or both ears and change your amplification based on the sounds you want to hear.
