What are smartphone compatible hearing aids?

Our world is connected through digital communication and smartphones. Many wearable devices connect to smartphones via Bluetooth. Now Bluetooth comes in hearing aids too.

Smartphone compatible hearing aids connect directly to your smartphone. These hearing aids enable you to connect with your Apple® or Android devices so you can stream calls and audio from your smartphone to your hearing aids. They also connect to hearing aid apps, so you can adjust your sound settings discreetly.

Stream sound to your hearing aids

When paired with your smartphone, your hearing aids can make you feel like you are wearing headphones instead of hearing aids, and they become one of your essential smart accessories.  For example, you can take a phone-call hands-free instead of having to put the phone against your ear, and you can hear the other person through both ears instead of just one. You can also hear the voiceover and audio from any app - stream directions, updates and notifications directly to your ears.

Made for iPhone hearing aids

There are hearing aids for iPhones® and other Apple® devices that are called Made for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch® hearing aids. They link directly to iPhones and other devices on the iOS platform, such as iPad®, iPod touch® and Apple Watch®. 

Android compatible hearing aids

There are also hearing aids for Android. The hearing aids pair up with Android devices, either directly or via a wireless streamer. Streamers are smart and discreet accessories which provide the communication link between the wireless technology in the hearing aids and the smartphone.
