Advantages of Bluetooth Technology and Hearing Aids
With improving technology impacting every area of our lives, it’s no surprise that hearing aids are also becoming more technologically advanced. There are so many ways in which they’re improving, and Bluetooth technology is at the forefront of these changes and advances. If you’re new to hearing aids or you’re looking for a new one, it’s a good idea to learn more about Bluetooth technology and how it could improve your hearing aids.
You can find out all about Bluetooth technology and how it’s being used by hearing aid developers right now. Each of the benefits and advantages associated with the technology and the changes that are currently occurring can massively improve your listening experience, including:
Quick and easy connections to devices
When you want your hearing aid to connect to another device, such as your smartphone or something similar, Bluetooth makes the process very quick and easy. There’s nothing complicated about it, and you connect with little effort. It works with all sorts of digital devices without the need for any wires.
It can connect from everything from your car stereo to your TV. More and more hearing aids are offering this functionality these days so it will quickly become standard. It’s even becoming possible for you to use this technology to tune into audio loop guides like the ones you find in museums. It’s another great thing that Bluetooth-enabled hearing aids can do.
Bluetooth streaming allows for crisper sounds
The sound quality you get when streaming audio via Bluetooth is very crisp and clear. Many people imagine that it won’t be, but you’ll experience it yourself once you give it a try. You’ll quickly be impressed by how clear and easy to listen to the sounds are. It’s a joy to experience.
It also means that if you connect the hearing aid to your smartphone and use it to hear phone calls, the sound will be right in your ear and you won’t have to go via the phone and then through your hearing aid. This also makes the sound clearer. The same applies when you’re streaming the audio from your TV to your hearing aid.
Better for your hearing aid microphones
Modern hearing aids use directional microphones to ensure you can hear what you want to hear. They also filter out background noises to stop them from sounding overwhelming. Wireless technology like Bluetooth makes this possible and offers even more accuracy when deciding direction and following conversations.
It makes such a big difference in how you hear things and how you follow sounds that are occurring around you. You don’t necessarily want to have your attention taken away by background noises when there is one sound or conversation that you’re trying to focus on.
More control for users
You’ll be able to connect directly to your smartphone via Bluetooth, and you can use this connection to control your hearing aid device via your smartphone if you want to. This is great because it puts you in full control of your hearing aid, using it exactly as you need to. You can change the settings and the volume at the tap of a screen.
This level of personalized customization can make a huge difference in how you use your hearing aid on a day to day basis. Never before has it been so easy for you to take full control of your hearing aid and how it functions. If you haven’t tried it out yet, you’ll be surprised by how much of a difference it can make.
Greater all-around convenience
The general convenience offered by your hearing aid devices when they’re Bluetooth-enabled is massive. Using your hearing aid, controlling it and connecting it are so easy, that anyone can do it. Even if you don’t usually like technology, you’ll very quickly get to grips with how it all works and how you can personally benefit from it all.
When you use a hearing aid, you expect convenience. After all, your hearing is a pretty fundamental thing to your day to day functioning. It should never be a chore for you. With Bluetooth and the new technological developments surrounding it, it’ll always be convenient.
Bluetooth can bring all kinds of new features and possibilities to your hearing aids, so it’s worth making use of this technology if you haven’t done so already. If you want to find out more about how this can help you, talk to your hearing instrument specialist at Ears 2 Hear by calling:
