All Ears: Why do I want a wireless hearing aid?

Great question — and your timing is perfect. After a recent trip to the gym, I came to the sad realisation that I’m a wired woman living in a wireless world. Let me explain. 

I have to admit: it had been a while since I’d been to the gym to run on a treadmill! I was looking forward to watching television or listening to music. I had my trusty wired headphones with me, but there wasn’t anywhere to plug them in. 

I couldn’t believe it! There I was, stuck with something that needed to be plugged in without a plug in sight! How could this be? There wasn’t a plug on the treadmill and I couldn’t even plug my wired headphones into my new smart phone! I was stuck without anything to pass the time: a wired girl in a wireless world. 

Wireless is the way to go

Hearing aid wearers are way ahead of me. Why? Because of wireless hearing aids. Wireless hearing aid wearers can stream media directly to their hearing aids without wires. Wireless hearing aid wearers don’t need cords or input jacks. Wireless connectivity allows wearers to stay connected to family and friends, and stream phone calls, television, and music directly to their hearing aids without people around them hearing what they’re listening to.

Audio can be streamed directly to your hearing aids at listening levels comfortably adjusted to compensate for your hearing loss. Wireless streaming also reduces background noise around you, since hearing aid microphones focus on the incoming streaming signals. 

Streaming phone calls directly to your hearing aids offers a hands-free solution, ideal for multitasking. Streaming music allows you to listen to your favorite tunes without headphones. Your hearing aids become the headphones. 

In short – you want a wireless hearing aid because they sound better and make life easier.
