Hearing aid options and accessibility
Wireless Hearing Aids
Bluetooth-enabled hearing aids offer convenience and improved functionality. By streaming signals from other electronic devices directly to your hearing aids, you can stay connected more easily.
You can stream the audio signals to either one or both hearing aids, helpful in situations where you need to be able to hear other sounds, such as when you are talking on the phone. You can use your hearing aids as wireless earbuds when listening to music or watching television. Most hearing aids allow you to adjust the volume and built-in programs easily. You can also switch between electronic devices with just a push of a button.
