GN Hearing, Google and Cochlear have worked together to create a new open specification for hearing aid streaming support on future versions of Android devices.
This new technology collaboration enables a wide spectrum of direct streaming from Android phones and tablets to hearing aids and hearing implants. GN Hearing and Cochlear are the first companies to support the new technology and offer this solution.
If you use ReSound LiNX Quattro, you will no longer need an accessory to stream sound from your Android device to your hearing aids. We hope this will allow more people to call friends, enjoy listening to music, and benefit from brilliant sound.
A team of engineers from GN Hearing, Google and Cochlear have collaborated on developing this new technology for the past two years, based on the jointly developed hearing aid specification: Audio Streaming for Hearing Aids (ASHA) on Bluetooth Low Energy Connection-Oriented Channels.
