What are the Benefits of Using a Bluetooth Hearing Aid Device?

Bluetooth hearing aids are a new innovation in the hearing aid industry. The Bluetooth earpiece is a small hearing device that can be worn behind the ear or be an in-the-ear style. It transmits sounds from a smart mobile phone wirelessly into the hearing aid so you no longer have to put up with whistling feedback when trying to couple your phone to the hearing aid. This technology has many advantages when compared to traditional hearing aids.

The Bluetooth earpiece provides many benefits that are not available with traditional hearing aids. One of these benefits is that it gives you more freedom with your day-to-day activities, such as being able to adjust your hearing aids via your smart phone. You can have more control over the volume level of the hearing device and no one has to know you are wearing hearing aids.

“Another lovely feature for Bluetooth Hearing Aids is the ability to stream music, watch YouTube or Netflix video on your smart phones.”

“The benefits of Bluetooth hearing aids go beyond just being able to answer phone calls easier,” says Nick Modrovich – Audiologist at Ability Hearing and Balance…

“You can also install a remote control app which allows you to adjust the volume of your hearing aids through your smart phone which really helps those clients who can’t always find the buttons at the back of the hearing aids.”
