Living with hearing loss can pose many challenges that impact communication and your overall quality of life. By taking advantage of the improved connectivity Bluetooth hearing aids provide, you can enjoy more accessible communication in all aspects of your daily life.
Let’s take a look at three specific ways Bluetooth hearing aids can improve your experience with hearing loss and how to best connect them with any smart device.
1. Direct Audio Streaming
One of the most significant advantages of Bluetooth hearing aids is their ability to connect directly to smartphones, televisions and computers. This means that instead of sound filling the room from a speaker, it goes directly to your hearing aids. Direct audio streaming is a game-changer in environments where clarity is crucial, such as busy meetings, lectures or phone conversations in noisy places.
2. Hands-Free Calls
Bluetooth technology turns your hearing aids into a hands-free headset for your phone. This means that you can take calls without holding your phone up to your ear for an extended length. Hands-free calls are especially convenient when shopping at The Fresh Market, cleaning your house and more.
3. Customizable Settings Through Apps
Many Bluetooth hearing aids come with accompanying smartphone apps. These apps allow users to adjust their hearing aid settings discretely and conveniently. You can fine-tune the sound to your hearing needs in real-time, from a crowded restaurant to a quiet home.
Connecting Your Bluetooth Hearing Aids
Connecting your Bluetooth hearing aids with any smart device follows similar steps:
- Turn on Bluetooth in your phone settings menu.
- Restart your hearing aids.
- Click “connect” when your hearings pop up under the Bluetooth device menu.
Most smart devices will follow these steps. For some types of hearing aids, you may connect through an app or your phone’s accessibility settings. If you’re having trouble connecting, contact your hearing aid specialist for troubleshooting.
There are approximately 28.8 million U.S. adults who could benefit from hearing aids. Whether it’s enjoying music, staying connected with loved ones, or excelling at work, Bluetooth hearing aids can make a big difference in your life with hearing loss.
