Hearing aids often present limitations to the user in terms of accessing personal devices such as mobile phones or music players. It is not uncommon, for example, for the user to remove their hearing aids and replace them with a pair of earbuds when they wish to listen to music. However, that inconvenience is a thing of the past with Bluetooth hearing aids. This sophisticated device offers the user the possibility to connect with their personal devices and stream the signal to their hearing aid via Bluetooth.
While actual Bluetooth hearing aids are not currently on the market, manufacturers of wireless hearing aids are using Bluetooth technology in their devices. The wireless hearing aids that are currently on the market are capable of using assistive listening devices, or “streamers”, which provides a link of communication between the wireless hearing aids and any device that has Bluetooth enabled.
Benefits of Bluetooth Hearing Aids
A streamer provides opportunities to the hearing aid user that helps personalize their listening experience. Using personalized settings set by the user, the hearing aids can be setup to stream in either one or both ears, and the volume is easily controllable by either the user or the manufacturer of the hearing aids. This means that a hearing aid can easily turn into a pair of earbuds.
Talk To Your Hearing Professional
When going in for a consultation for hearing aids, it is important to discuss your wireless connectivity needs with your hearing professional. Upon hearing your need, your hearing professional will then recommend wireless hearing aids and a streamer, if necessary. After receiving your hearing aids, the streamer will then pick up a Bluetooth signal from your phone, tablet, music player, etc.
