Bluetooth capable hearing devices.
Hearing device technology continues to introduce exciting new options for connectivity to personal media devices, telephones and televisions to name a few.
One issue that was previously reported by hearing aid users was having difficulty conducting phone calls with mobile phones. Many manufacturers now offer direct Bluetooth connectivity to both Android and IPhone mobile phones. This allows the hearing aid user to hear phone calls clearly through both hearing devices – making the phone conversation easier to hear especially in noisy situations.
This technology is also available for watching television. Gone are the days where people with hearing difficulty have to rely only on headphones. Headphones certainly assist with the clarity of TV without large increases in volume. However, headphones reduce the ability to communicate with others. By adding a transmitter to the television, you can watch TV at a volume suitable to you. The volume is not affected for other viewers, and you can still hear and converse with others.
Background noise situations or where the sound source is at a distance can be challenging. If you are a student, have regular meetings, find it difficult to hear in church or difficult hearing conversation in noisy situations or in the car, a remote microphone can help. Remote microphones are worn by a speaker and send their voice directly and wirelessly to your hearing devices. This overcomes any distance and background noise, making speech clearer and easier to hear.
