Pindrop Toronto can help you select a Bluetooth hearing aid for your needs.
As wireless communications technologies continue to become smaller, more advanced, and more powerful, it was only a matter of time before new and innovative applications for these technologies were developed and integrated in to existing older ones. This is true in the realm of audiology and assistive listening devices as well, with the newest push being in the form of Bluetooth hearing aids.
Bluetooth is a communication standard that was developed to make it easier for wireless devices to connect to one another over the air. Usually reserved for things like keyboards and computer mice, Bluetooth has gone on to help connect hands-free headsets with mobile phones, enable communication between fitness devices such as heart rate monitors and computers, and even game controllers with consoles. It’s no wonder that Bluetooth is now being used to connect hearing aids directly with audio sources such as mobile phones, televisions, radios, MP3 players, and computers.
Bluetooth hearing aids can be paired with a number of different compatible devices – sometimes up to eight – in order to provide clearer, feedback-free sound amplification. Bluetooth hearing aids that are tuned to a specific device turn off their microphones and only transmit audio wirelessly instead of having to pick up sounds and ideally at a range of around 30 feet or less, making it easier to have a phone conversation without having to subject yourself to feedback in your ear or to watch television in a crowded room without straining to make out what’s being said on the screen.
