Bluetooth is a standard for the short-range interconnection of mobile phones, computers, music devices and other electronic devices. Devices that are bluetooth enabled can connect and communicate wirelessly to one another. What does this mean for the hearing aid user? It means that we can now pair the user’s hearing aids to these bluetooth enabled devices wirelessly and make communication with family, friends, coworkers and loved ones a whole lot easier.
Today most manufacturers make hearing aids with bluetooth connectivity which has truly revolutionized the hearing aid industry. Oticon, Phonak and Widex, the 3 manufacturers we specialize in, all make hearing aids that use bluetooth technology.
