Bluetooth-Enabled Hearing Devices

Bluetooth Hearing Aids

Hearing aid developers are constantly coming up with bigger and better ways of making hearing aids more convenient for people to use. The development of Bluetooth capabilities has made it possible for a user to connect directly to the device/source of the desired sound. A similar technology to that used with wireless internet is used with Bluetooth hearing aids. Hearing aids enabled with Bluetooth technology can be connected wirelessly to many types of devices, such as radio, cell phones, tablets and televisions.

Whether it’s an in the ear, in the canal, behind the ear, or mini behind the ear style of hearing aid, many types of hearing aids on the market are compatible with Bluetooth. There are a lot of choices to pick from for Bluetooth hearing aids depending on the manufacturer.

Benefits Of Bluetooth

Bluetooth compatible hearing aids come with many benefits, and also a few downsides. With wireless technology, the sound quality received from the connecting electronic device is much better. Bluetooth enabled hearing aids make it possible for the user to forgo headphones, because the hearing aid actually takes the place of these products.

Many everyday tasks are made simpler with this Bluetooth technology. Everything from using a computer or tablet to listening to your favorite music becomes easier. Even watching TV becomes a better experience because of greater control over volume. This can be controlled either with the hearing aid or associated app.

Bluetooth Hearing Aid Considerations

For some Bluetooth compatible hearing aids, the microphone needs to be turned down, and for others turned completely off when connected to a Bluetooth compatible device. This depends both on the type of hearing aid being used and how it was originally set by your specialist. Because of this, you may lose amplification of other sounds around you and should be aware of this at time of use.

Although not too difficult, hearing aids with Bluetooth compatibility do require some simple set up. If you are not very tech savvy, you may want to enlist the help of a hearing professional or friend. When in use, the Bluetooth signal from the device being used is converted by the transmitter to a signal the hearing aid can understand. The Bluetooth signal will not be able to reach the hearing aid if it is not in range of the transmitter.

Because of additional features that come along with hearing aids that are Bluetooth compatible, you should consider how often they will be connected to other devices before selecting one.

If considering a Bluetooth compatible hearing aid, you should speak with a specialist concerning your options. They will find out from you what types of listening devices you most commonly use on a daily basis. Ask your specialist for a demonstration of a Bluetooth compatible hearing aid with a streaming device. Exploring your options can open you up to a whole new ease of life, that you weren’t previously aware was available.
