Bluetooth hearing aids do exactly what the name suggests, they connect to Bluetooth wireless technology. Using the Bluetooth frequency, you can stream calls and audio from your smartphone to your Bluetooth hearing aids. You could also stream music from your iPad® or iPod® touch to your hearing aids.
There are Bluetooth hearing aids for iPhones and other compatible Apple devices that are called Made for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch (MFi) hearing aids. They use Bluetooth wireless connectivity to link directly to iPhones and other devices on the iOS platform, such as iPad and iPod touch.
There are also Bluetooth hearing aids for Android. The hearing aids connect to the Bluetooth frequency to pair up with Android devices, either directly or via a wireless streamer.
Streamers are smart and discreet accessories. They provide the communication link between the wireless technology in the hearing aids and the Bluetooth-enabled devices, which can be multiple devices at once, including your TV.
With Bluetooth-connected hearing aids you can stream sound from virtually any audio source for a customised and convenient listening experience.
