If you are a hearing aid user or have spoken over the phone to someone with a hearing aid then you know how difficult it can be to have a conversation via a mobile phone. Many people have opted out of using the phone all together or have decided that text messaging might be easier. This is big problem and it does not have to be this way and I am going to tell you why.
Thanks to a technology that many of you are probably familiar with called Bluetooth hearing aid wears are now able to have in-dept personal conversations on a mobile phone! The hearing aid wearer does not have to worry about missing more than half the conversation due to their hearing loss and best of all its hands free!
How does it work?
Bluetooth is a somewhat new technology that uses a short-range wireless radio signal. This signal can reach around 30 feet to 100 feet depending on the product. Bluetooth allows devices to“talk” to each other and connect in a way that allows the devices to work cohesively to solve a problem. In this case, the problem is hearing over the mobile phone or watching TV.
Bluetooth has already vastly improved hearing aids because it does not just amplify sound it actually connects hearing aids to the Bluetooth device and allows the hearing aid user to hearing the sound through their hearing aids. This is revolutionary because it not only streams sound through both ears but all the sound is heard at the levels professionally programmed by your hearing specialist for crystal clear speech.
Does it work only on my phone?
Hearing aids can pair with any Bluetooth devices and many hearing aids have adapters to connect with TV, computers, tablets, and other Bluetooth devices so you can watch movie, videos and chat online and never have to worry about the speakers on the device because the sound comes directly to your ears! You can watch TV with a friend or loved one and they can have their volume on the TV at any level they please and it will not affect how the sound streams to the hearing aids.
