Bluetooth-Enabled Hearing Aids – How They Work and Precisely What They Might Mean For You

There’s an excellent chance that your current hearing aid offers Bluetooth technology, especially if you purchased it recently. Bluetooth is typically associated with cellular phone use, however it is also widely found in televisions, computers, mp3 players and home phones. If your hearing aid is equipped with Bluetooth, you are able to connect with these products in novel and practical ways, providing increased enjoyment and a richer experience.

A hearing aid’s Bluetooth capabilities are typically accessed by a standalone device that’s both compact and user friendly. These devices are generally kept in a pocket or worn around the neck. When you wish to receive Bluetooth signals, the controller will receive the sounds and wirelessly transmit them to your hearing aid. The feature is used to enjoy your TV set or phone without having to raise the volume. Among the nicest features of having hearing aids that can receive Bluetooth signals is that you can listen to telephone conversations in both ears, which makes it even easier to hear your caller.

Your Bluetooth controller will be designed for easy use. In many cases all you must do is push a button that is assigned to the device you would like to listen to. If you want to hear your TV, simply press the television button once to turn it on, and then press it again when you wish to stop listening. Your hearing aid manufacturer may have included other functions with this device, making it easy to use other benefits with one controller.

Bluetooth enabled hearing aids can be particularly useful for senior citizens with mobility issues. Newer models have the ability to connect to devices that are as much as 30 feet away, which means that you can place or answer a telephone call without needing to get up from a chair. In an emergency, this feature could be lifesaving.

You can enjoy a clear listening experience with your Bluetooth-enabled hearing aid that you may be unable to have any other way. This straightforward technology can dramatically improve your ability to hear, allowing you to enjoy experiences that may have once been unattainable.
