Tips for Successful Hearing Aid usage.
There are several different types of wireless streamers available today. Some hang around your neck, others clip to your shirt, and others can be kept in your pocket. There are even hearing aids available that don't require a streaming device. In this case, the smart phone acts as the streamer, and sends the signal directly into your hearing aids. In all cases, the settings for that sound input can be adjusted independently of the other hearing aid settings. So if the sound coming from the phone isn't just right, be sure to tell your hearing care provider so he or she can make the necessary adjustments to that program in your hearing aids.
Most hearing aids prescribed today are equipped with wireless technology that allows them to receive an incoming signal from any Bluetooth device. Manufacturers each have their own version of this streaming device that receives the signal from your mobile phone and sends it directly into your hearing aids. This is an amazing technology that allows for clear, hands-free talking on any Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone.
If you have a wireless streamer with your hearing aids, be sure to use it! You'll be amazed how clear the sound is when it comes directly out of your hearing aids. If you aren't sure if your hearing aids are equipped with this technology, return to your hearing care provider and ask about your options. If you are considering obtaining new hearing aids, make sure you choose a system that includes this amazing feature, even if you don't think you'll use it right away. The world is going wireless, so you might as well hop on board! (tip courtesy of Henry's Communication Tips)
