Modern hearing aids are considerably advanced, not only providing you with excellent hearing quality but also able to connect to your smartphone. But since not all hearing aids are able to connect with your iPhone, it’s important to know before you get set on a new pair of hearing aids.
Difference Between Made For iPhone And Bluetooth Connectivity
Our hearing health care professionals here at Hearing Associates of Las Vegas are often asked if there is any real difference between hearing aids with Bluetooth connectivity and hearing aids that are Made For iPhone (MFi). And the short answer is—yes.
Using a Bluetooth connection to link your hearing aids to your iPhone often requires you to use a secondary device to assist with the connection. For example, many Oticon hearing aids are able to connect wirelessly to your hearing aids when you use the ConnectClip accessory, but not without it. Often, these hearing aids are small and discreet, but it still means you need something extra besides just your iPhone and hearing aids.
With hearing aids that are specifically designed to be compatible for iPhone, they should be able to connect directly with your smartphone. This connection will be stable enough to support phone calls, audio streaming, remote adjustments, and more.
What Top Hearing Aids Work With An iPhone
So, now that you have a good idea why you may want a MFi set of hearing aids, the real question is, what hearing aids work with iPhones? Well, that’s a little complicated.
There are likely over 100 hearing aids which are compatible with iPhones. However, not all of these hearing aids are of the highest quality when it comes not only to their connectivity but also the hearing aids ability to deliver an excellent listening experience.
To help narrow down the list, we have chosen a few of the best hearing aids from the top hearing aid brands that have regularly turned out excellent hearing aids and have gone over what kind of connectivity features you can have with these hearing aids.
