Assistive listening devices
Challenging listening situations often require accessories that can provide a better experience than hearing aids alone. Assistive listening devices offer the latest in wireless technology and allow a boost in your hearing aid performance to make sure you’re getting the best hearing experience, like when there is background noise or you’re listening at a distance.
These assistive listening devices increase the range at which your hearing aid can focus on the sounds you want to hear. Pairing your hearing aids to them is really simple and can be done from the comfort of your own home.
One of the first indications of hearing loss often occurs when watching television. People living with hearing loss often increase the volume, sometimes to a level that friends or family members find uncomfortable. But an increase of volume doesn’t always mean an increase in clarity, even with the use of hearing aids.
With the TV streamer, you can stream crystal-clear stereo sound from the television directly to your ears from up to seven metres away, while also being able to individually change the volume of the TV and the world around you.
Wireless microphones can help in tricky hearing situations, like hearing while travelling in the car, or in restaurants, meetings or lectures. A body worn microphone streams the voice of the speaker directly to your hearing aids, allowing you to hear up to ten times clearer than with your hearing aids alone, up to a 25-metre distance.
Some can access telecoil loops, stream to virtually any device with headphone output, and even be FM receiver compatible. You’ll be able to hear the speaker’s voice streaming directly to your ears, turning the rest of the world down so you can focus on your conversation.
Don’t have a smartphone? No problem. For those who want minimal control and minimal technology, you can discreetly control and adjust your hearing aids with a sleek and small battery powered device. No need for extra cables and plugs.
A Bluetooth® bridge essentially turns your hearing aids into a hands-free headset for your phone. So you can take phone calls straight to your hearing aids, losing the background noise that can be distracting. You don’t have to worry about phone placement with your hearing aids, the sound quality is improved and if you have two hearing aids, you’ll hear the call in both ears.
