Technology is incredible! Did you know that many hearing aids connect to a smartphone to help your overall experience? It can be very frustrating not to be able to hear on the phone and can lead to avoiding calls with family and friends. But don't let hearing loss get in the way, there are many things you can do when connecting your phone to your hearing aids.
Your hearing aids can essentially act as speakers for your phone, allowing you to listen to things like driving directions or music. You can answer phone calls, often with a simple touch in one ear, then enjoy an entire conversation without ever picking up your phone!
Once connected, you can use your phone to control many aspects of your hearing aids. Looking at your phone, you can control the volume of each ear, locate your hearing aids if they have been misplaced, and check the status of the battery life.
The possibilities are tremendous! The features available to you depend on the type of hearing aid and the type of smartphone. Be sure to talk to your audiologist or doctor to find out more about how your hearing aid and your smartphone can be used together to enhance your experience!
