Streaming Hearing Aids
Streaming hearing aids offer you an enhanced audio experience by wirelessly connecting to external sources. More specifically, these hearing aids use Bluetooth to establish a direct connection with smartphones, televisions, and other compatible devices, allowing for seamless audio streaming. This means they double as headphones.
One important drawback to notice about those hearing aids is that using this function really limits battery life.
Benefits of Streaming Hearing Aids
1. Improved Phone Communication
Usually, these models enable users to directly receive phone calls in their hearing aids (sometimes iPhone only). By connecting to smartphones, these devices transmit call audio wirelessly, providing clear and amplified sound for easier and more effective communication.
2. Enhanced Media Streaming
With hearing aids with this feature, users can enjoy music, podcasts, and other media content by streaming it directly from their smartphones or other compatible devices. This feature ensures a personalized and high-quality audio experience, improving accessibility to entertainment.
3. Convenient Television Connectivity
Many of these models offer TV streaming capabilities, too. Users can wirelessly transmit sound from their televisions to their hearing aids using additional accessories like TV streamers or Bluetooth transmitters. This allows for a customized listening experience while watching TV, without disturbing others.
