Modern hearing aids do more than just amplify sounds. They can work to suppress background noise, improve your ability to locate sound and even connect with your other devices such as your laptop or smartphone.
Having your hearing aids connected to your smartphone is not only convenient, but it also offers a variety of different benefits as well.
A 2014 observational study found that hearing aid users who paired their device using Bluetooth reported experiencing the ability to hear emotion and mood in voices for the first time, as well as the improved ability to hear film or to hold conversations over the telephone.
Experience Clearer Phone Calls
Phone calls can be difficult to follow when you have hearing loss. You may also experience a whistling noise (feedback) when holding your phone up to your ear when you have your hearing aids in. Streaming calls directly into your device lets you experience clearer, high-quality sound from anywhere. That way, you don’t have to be worried about missing important information on a work call or not being able to hear your granddaughter tell you about her dance recital.
Stream Music and Other Media Directly Into Your Device
In addition to phone calls, your hearing aids can double as wireless earbuds to stream music, podcasts or other media directly into your device. This can make it easy and enjoyable to listen to your favorite songs when you’re taking the bus to work or walking on the trails of the Wildcat Bluff Nature Center.
Make Hearing Aid Adjustments From Your Smartphone
The level of volume we are exposed to varies throughout the day and depending on whether you’re in quieter or louder environments, your hearing aids may need to be adjusted. Whether it’s simply turning the volume up or down or switching to a different setting that better suits your current location, connecting your hearing aids to your smartphone makes this easier to accomplish. Instead of reaching for your hearing aids, you can use an app on your phone to discretely make any needed adjustments and quickly get back to listening to what you want to hear.
