Technology & Hearing Aids

This month I want to write a bit about technology.  Today technology has afforded us many conveniences, such as bringing us closer to friends and family, bringing the news to us faster, and helping us to manage our day-to-day activities.  Hearing aids are no exception, and ReSound brings us the LiNX²™ hearing aids, in which you can experience a vivid sense of space and speech.  ReSound LiNX² is proven to deliver up to 30% better speech clarity than other premium hearing aids on the market, and it features the industry’s most accurate noise reduction.  With this technology, you can hear more of what you want to and less of what you don’t.  These made for iPhone® hearing aids connects with your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch devices to make your hearing aids work like a wireless stereo headphone.  It allows you to stream phone calls, music, & YouTube videos, directly from your iPhone, iPad, & iPod touch devices.  Simply download the free app (compatible with both Apple & Android devices) to use as a remote control.  This app allows you to adjust volume, treble, and bass, create favorite programs, control your wireless accessories, and enhance your listening experience in challenging sound environments – all without touching your hearing aids.  (Direct streaming is not available with Android at this time, only Apple).

Are you, or someone you know, interested in learning more about this great technology?  Call or email us today and remember hearing tests are free in our office or in your home.
