Are Bluetooth Hearing Aids Right for You?

If you've looked into new hearing aids recently, chances are you've come across ones equipped with Bluetooth. Bluetooth technology allows people to stream phone calls, music and videos directly from their smartphone to their hearing aids. While still relatively new, these devices are becoming more and more popular for the flexibility and convenience they provide in this increasingly connected world. If you're in need of a new pair of hearing aids, learn more about Bluetooth-compatible devices and see if they're right for you.

Hearing Aids for the Modern Lifestyle

How Bluetooth is Transforming the Hearing Aid Wearing Experience

Technology is constantly moving forward, and hearing aids are certainly no exception. Adding Bluetooth is just one way in which manufacturers are catering to the demands of a modern lifestyle. After all, people use smartphones for just about every aspect of their lives, including e-mailing, texting, banking and streaming - so, why not hearing?

Thanks to Bluetooth, wearers can now listen to music, watch Netflix, FaceTime with friends and so much more without ever having to remove their hearing aids. All they have to do is pair the hearing aids to their phone, MP3 player, tablet or other device to start streaming high-quality audio. When the telecoils inside the hearing aids pick up Bluetooth signals, the microphone shuts off to prevent background interference, enabling people to enjoy smooth, easy listening throughout the day.

Setting Auditory Preferences with the Tap of a Finger

Once the hearing aids are linked to a smartphone through Bluetooth, auditory settings can be controlled through an app. Whether you're at home or on the go, you can make the adjustments you need right in the palm of your hand. Depending on the hearing aids and the particular app, some available features include:

If you have hearing aids compatible with iOS 7 or later, for example, you can simply go into the Settings folder of your phone to make any adjustments. These adjustments can even be made from the phone's lock screen for quick access. Additionally, you can also connect your hearing aids to other Bluetooth-enabled iOS devices, such as an iPad or laptop, for seamless transitions.

Should You Get Bluetooth Hearing Aids?

Bluetooth hearing aids offer the personalized listening, privacy and freedom that many people with hearing loss look for. You can use them to hear your TV, GPS, Pandora and more clearly and comfortably. But, Bluetooth hearing aids aren't right for everyone. Think about your own lifestyle and how they might be able to benefit you, or if there's another style that better suits your needs.
