Made for iPhone Hearing Aids
The late, great Steve Jobs once said, “Some people think design means how it looks but of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works.” The latest iPhones now offer new technology specifically tailored to work with hearing aids. Using Bluetooth, iPhones connect directly to compatible hearing aids, delivering conversations, music, FaceTime, and other media directly to the wearer’s ears.
iPhones are also equipped with Live Listen, a technology that utilizes the iPhone’s microphone to capture and amplify sounds that hearing aid wearers wish to hear. By activating this feature and placing the phone near the sound source, amplified sounds will stream directly to the hearing aids.
We offer hearing aids from leading global manufacturers.
Among these, the following offer iPhone connectivity.
Starkey Halo iQ
The Halo iQ offers advanced noise reduction technology and directional microphones that reduce noise and make speech easier to hear in challenging environments. As a Made for iPhone hearing aid, the Halo iQ allows wearers to stream phone communication, music, and media directly from the smartphone to the hearing aid. With the TruLink app, Halo iQ wearers may activate a GPS geo-tag function, which records user preferences in locations and automatically re-adjusts to those saved settings when the wearer returns. This provides wearers with a seamless listening experience.
Halo iQ’s directional microphones assist wearers in many different environments by eliminating distracting background noise. This provides the wearer with a clearer sound signal, with less listening effort. Halo iQ offers flexibility with different frequencies, balancing high and low frequencies for improved speech intelligibility.
LiNX 3D and Quattro
LiNX hearing aids connect wirelessly through Bluetooth technology to iPhones, iPads, and the iPod Touch. This allows the wearer to stream sound directly from their phones to their ears. By connecting to the iPhone, LiNX wearers are also able to control hearing aid features, volume, and user preferences directly through the ReSound Smart App. This gives wearers ease of access and discretion when controlling their aids.
The LiNX Quattro and LiNX 3D are both slim, discreet hearing aids with water resistant properties. LiNX is designed to address hearing loss from mild to severe in degree, and it is available to be worn in-the-ear, behind-the-ear, and receiver-in-canal. To address tinnitus, LiNX is also equipped with sound therapies to alleviate the symptoms of tinnitus.
EVOKE wearers have two streaming options: Bluetooth or using DEX, Widex’s wireless accessories. With connection to your iPhone, EVOKE allows you to stream phone calls, music, and other media directly to your ears. Through the Widex app, wearers have control over their listening experience, making adjustments simply to program features, balance, and volume.
