Bluetooth Hearing Aids
Bluetooth hearing aids are any hearing aids that allow you to connect your hearing device to your phone. There are three main functions with Bluetooth hearing aids: volume control, self-fitting, and streaming. The more advanced hearing aids will combine these features.
These app-controlled hearing aids allow you to change the volume of your hearing aid using a smartphone app. It also gives you the chance to change the listening program and keep an eye on the battery life of your hearing aids. Most Bluetooth-enabled hearing aids will have this feature and not offer other features unless mentioned otherwise.
Self-fitting hearing aids help you set up the hearing aid using a quick hearing test. This adjusts the hearing aid to your needs and makes it easier to use. This is a more advanced feature of some hearing aids and ensures you get a more personalized experience. It's a DIY version of the hearing test an audiologist gives you. Self-fitting hearing aids also offer app-controlled functions.
Streaming allows you to stream music, video sound, and phone calls straight to your devices. This very advanced feature means your hearing aids double as normal headphones. In the future, more and more hearing aids will be equipped with this function.
