Benefits of Streaming Products and Apps
Although your hearing aids are ready to operate right out of the box once you put batteries in, there are a number of assistive technology devices and applications on your smartphone that you can use in conjunction with your hearing aids. Because many of these assistive technology devices operate using Bluetooth® technology, you’ll get the most out of these when you have Bluetooth hearing aids. To learn more about streaming devices, contact us and we can discuss your options.
How the Products Work
These devices work to make your life easier. They are designed with communication and entertainment applications in mind, helping to transform your hearing aids into a personal wireless headset.
What Can I Connect to Through Streaming Devices?
The purpose of the streaming products is to enhance communication in all aspects:
- Face-to-face conversation via remote microphone
- Watching TV
- Listening to music
- Chatting online or over the phone
There’s an App for That
There are countless apps that connect to your hearing aids, helping you do the things you want to do — with ease.
Android or iPhone®
Some apps connect your Made for iPhone or Android hearing aids, turning them into customizable units with features that improve your listening experiences. These apps allow you to stream phone calls, FaceTime® audio, music, and sound from your television or computer using Bluetooth technology.
Your cell can also act as a remote control and microphone for your devices. The remote feature allows you to change the volume of your Bluetooth hearing aids quickly and easily, while the live microphone offers extra amplification to ensure that you don’t miss a moment of conversation. The microphone feature can also record, play back, and email audio as it happens.
Other applications allow you to remotely adjust bass and treble to make hearing in certain environments easier. They can also save those adjustments so that when you return to a specific location, your devices readjust automatically.
