Wireless Technology and Hearing Aids
Do you long for better hearing when in meetings or on the phone?
Then you should consider a hearing device equipped with wireless technology.
From our cell phones to tablets, technology is integrated into our lives like never before. Therefore it makes ultimate good sense that a highly sophisticated device such as a hearing aid, should be able to ‘talk’ to that technology.
Imagine the possibilities! That cell phone conversation beamed wirelessly up to your hearing aid, or the signal from your TV routed directly into your hearing device. How convenient is that! But this isn’t wishful thinking because there are hearing aids already on the market that can do just this, so let’s take a look at some of the features they offer.
1. Flawless Connectivity
Wireless enabled hearing aids can communicate with external devices. This includes tele coil loops in public auditoriums or meeting halls, FM systems where a lecturer or public speakers wear a microphone, or paired with a Bluetooth device to receive a transmission from a MP3, laptop, or phone direct into your hearing device.
Both the telecoil and FM systems benefit your hearing in public places and in meetings. Thus is you have are in education and regularly attends lectures, or work and are expected to take notes in meetings, then wireless technology makes life without wires less tangled and more straightforward.
On a personal level, when wanting to listen for pleasure or to an individual conversation on a remote device, then Bluetooth transmission makes a huge positive impact. No longer do you have to hold a phone to your ear and knock the hearing aid or experience whistling. Now it’s possible to have the signal delivered direct to the device. Imagine how convenient and discrete that would be.
2. Great Inter-Connectivity
We have two ears for a reason: to help localize sound and minimize distractions. If you need to wear a device in each ear, this means double the time to make program adjustments when you move from one listening environment to another. Not only that but the two devices function independently, leaving your brain to do the math and add or subtract what one ear hears from the other.
This isn’t the case with wireless technology aids. Being wireless enabled allows them to talk to one another and work in harmony so your brain is fed cleaner information that is less confusing. This makes your assisted hearing that bit closer to natural hearing and allows you to localize sounds with greater accuracy.
In addition, when you change the setting on one device, it automatically makes the same change on its partner, freeing you from the inconvenience of double adjustments.
And finally, wearing a hearing device enabled to pick up wireless signals, makes the listening experience much more natural, improves the sound quality and add convenience to the bundle and it’s not hard to see why wireless technology could put you back in touch with the world.
