For that person that has everything what would they love for a long time but they don’t want to buy it for themselves, or they don’t think they need it, something to help them hear!
There are so many wonderful extra hearing-assisted devices besides the traditional hearing aid that will help one hear in so many situations.
We want to share some ideas with you so that you can give the gift of hearing to someone you love.
For instance, there are products that connect to your phone, like a Bluetooth hearing-assisted piece, so you can hear every call crystal clear in both ears at once, hands-free. There are TV streamers (Bluetooth or otherwise) that virtually eliminate the old “What did he say?” during the actors’ dialogues. And the thing is there are so many different kinds. With different features and prices. There are also pieces that help you block out noise while hearing in noise.
Hearables is the name of the game!
TV Streaming products –
this device can bring the TV sound to your ears via different modes. It can stream wirelessly with proprietary technology to a hearing aid or a product. You can also get wired products but that is old school by now. Wireless is the name of the game so you can still hear while you run into the kitchen and get some ice cream! Who wouldn’t want to do that while still listening to your show? It can stream via the loop with a t-coil. You can also use a headset that works either with FM or IR.
Standard Phone devices –
there are many different ways to use a phone to hear better. Phones can be hearing aid compatible with T-coil, or can be amplified, or even have software features that help make the speech clearer. Phones can have Closed Caption so that you can read what your caller is saying along with hearing it. There are also pieces that can connect to the phone that can connect to a product or a hearing aid. Check in with us and see what we recommend for you.
Cell phone devices –
There are even ways to stream your cell phone calls or music to your hearing aids. Each hearing aid company has its own method or proprietary technology to connect that may include LE Bluetooth, FM signal, or a combination of all three. Some phones even have apps and technology for the brand you may be used to connect or control the signal. There are always more options coming available all the time. We will keep you posted on them. Email us about the option that will work best for you and your technology level and interest.
Portable music/book players –
The iPod/iPad, MP3 players, notebooks, and other portable listening devices also can stream and connect to hearing aids and products. Do you want wireless or is wired better for you? New technology is available so please let us know what interests you or your loved one. We are here to help!
