Wireless Solutions for TV and Telephone
Advances in wireless hearing aids and hearing technology make it possible for some hearing aids to receive wireless sound from your TV and telephone. If you talk on the telephone a lot or enjoy TV or movies, these devices can provide excellent clarity. Many people stop watching TV or talking on the phone because of difficulty hearing. Bluetooth compatible wireless hearing aids help solve that problem.
Here’s how it works: A small wireless Bluetooth device plugs into your TV. It sends the sound from the TV directly to your wireless hearing aids at a volume that you can control. The sound comes through the hearing aids at a volume that is comfortable and clear for you, while everyone else in the room watches and hears the TV at normal volume. The benefit is that you can use your hearing aids to watch TV the way you want to, and others are also comfortable watching TV.
Here’s how it works: A small wireless Bluetooth device you wear like a necklace (it can be hidden under your shirt) takes a caller’s voice and wirelessly sends it directly into the hearing aids, through both ears. The result is that you can receive calls anywhere, from your cellphone or at home with a clear sound, by hearing the call directly through the wireless hearing aids in both ears. It helps you understand the conversation with much greater ease and comfort.
IPods or other audio devices
Here’s how it works: You can stream music or movies from your computer or iPod into both hearing aids for a great listening experience. A wireless Bluetooth streamer is worn around the neck like a necklace. This Bluetooth streamer receives music streaming from the iPod, and then it streams the sound directly into both hearing aids where the sound is adjusted for your particular hearing loss. The result is music coming through your hearing aids that is adjusted for you, thereby allowing you to hear the full spectrum of the music. Imagine not letting hearing loss come between you and your enjoyment of pop, classical, rock, or whatever style of music you like.
