Hearing loss is a condition that many people in the United States silently suffer from. With over 15% of the country having some form of hearing loss, it is undoubtedly an affliction that still has an impact, even in these modern times.
Fortunately, as technology continues to evolve at an ever-increasing rate, the resources available to those with hearing loss continue to become more beneficial. Probably the most expected assistance to those with hearing loss, the hearing aid is no exception.
Hearing aids can now recover over 90% of your lost hearing, significantly improving the overall quality of life for those that have hearing loss.
Today’s hearing aids are more sophisticated than ever. One of the most significant advances available in hearing aid technology today is the ability to pair your hearing aids with a variety of smartphones, including Apple iPhones and several Android handsets.
Fortunately, Hearing Associates of Las Vegas offers many different hearing aids options that are compatible with smartphones. If you have any questions about these products, please contact us for more information.
Hearing Associates of Las Vegas carries many models of Widex hearing aids, including Widex MOMENT, Widex EVOKE, Widex CUSTOM, Widex SUPER, Widex CROS – BiCROS, and Widex Pediatrics. All of these models offer smartphone compatibility.
Widex hearing aids can connect with most phones, tablets, and mobile devices via assistive listening devices. Assistive listening devices allow your hearing aids to communicate with other electronic devices like your cell phone, TV, landline phone, or radio.
Current Widex model hearing aids connect with most mobile phones via UNI-DEX, a neck-worn assistive listening device. UNI-DEX’ built-in microphone allows you to talk hands-free and listen to your music on your phone or tablet. UNI-DEX works with almost all phones.
Widex hearing aids also use Widexlink, a wireless technology that streams better than Bluetooth. Unlike Bluetooth, the most common form of wireless technology, WidexLink is explicitly designed for the demands of hearing aids. It uses less power, is extremely fast, and ensures no delays or drop-out of sound.
We also offer models of Oticon hearing aids compatible with smartphone devices, mainly the Oticon Opn, Opn S, and Oticon Ruby.
Oticon hearing aids are made for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, but they are also compatible with Android devices.
Oticon also features two apps to pair with their devices that offer a wide range of features. The Oticon RemoteCare app offers Virtual appointments with your hearing care professional, where they can remotely adjust your hearing aids.
Their Oticon ON app can stream your TV’s audio directly to your hearing aids or adjust the volume discreetly with a tiny Remote Control. You can also set personal listening goals and follow your daily hearing aid use through HearingFitness.
The app also enables your hearing aids to interact with other Internet-connected devices and services. Trigger your lights, home alarm, or smart thermostat when you turn your hearing aids on or off. Tell your hearing aids to notify you when your battery is low, the laundry is finished, or someone’s at the door.
We offer Starkey Livio and Livio AI hearing aids that feature smartphone connectivity through their Thrive Hearing Control app.
The Thrive Hearing Control app gives the user full control over their hearing aids using their smartphone. Like a TV remote, it lets people adjust volume, switch memories, and manage other features that hearing aids couldn’t do until now.
The app also features brain and body activity tracking, assistive features like Find My Phone, Translate, Transcribe, and Self Check, which lets you check your hearing aid performance without an office visit. Not to mention hearing features like Mask Mode, which help make it easier to listen to people who are wearing face masks.
We offer the ReSound One, ReSound ENZO 2, and ReSound LINX Quattro, which all offer smartphone compatibility.
ReSound wireless hearing aids enable you to stream audio directly from your smartphone or tablet and personalize your sound on the go with the ReSound apps.
You can connect ReSound wireless hearing aids directly to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod®touch. This enables you to stream phone calls, music, navigation, or any other audio from your device straight to your hearing aids.
You can also use the ReSound Smart 3D or the ReSound Smart apps to tailor your hearing experience and perfectly match your preferences.
We offer multiple Signia hearing aids that are smartphone compatible, including the Signia Insio, Signia Insio Nx, Signia Silk Nx, Signia Styletto X, Signia Pure X, and the Signia CROS/BiCROS Systems.
