Everything You Need to Know About Smartphone-Ready Hearing Aids

Smartphones are one man’s greatest innovations. With it, we can easily connect to our loved ones, remain updated with what is going on in the society, and keep all our necessary informations with a single handheld device. However, it may not be as helpful to those who have difficulty hearing. A person with hearing loss misses the most basic functions of a smartphone such as calling. But all thanks to the ever developing technology, there already exists an effective solution to this dilemma. Have you ever heard of smartphone-ready hearing aids?

Benefits of Smartphone-Compatible Hearing Aids

Ultimately, the main advantage of purchasing smartphone-ready hearing aids is the ability that it gives wearers to leverage on technological benefits just like how a person with normal hearing can. Let’s dig deeper on this as we move on with this article.

Direct audio streaming

Smartphone-ready hearing aids have bluetooth features, which enables you to connect your device to your mobile phones. With this, users are able to pick up calls, listen to music, and watch videos without background noise getting in the way. These type of hearing aids have the power to cancel out unnecessary noise that hinders you from enjoying sounds from your smartphone.

Adjust your hearing aids through your mobile device

One of the main concerns of hearing aid wearers, especially the young ones, is having to adjust their device out in the open. Even though hearing loss in not something to be ashamed of, there still exists this stigma, which sometimes puts patients to a very difficult situation.

With smartphone-ready hearing aids, wearers are able to adjust their device with their mobile phones. There’s no need to do it manually anymore, several apps enables patients to tinker the volume and other programs of their device with just several taps.

Remote hearing care

Smartphone-ready hearing aid also facilitates remote hearing care. What does this mean? This means you can have your device adjusted and programmed by your hearing care professional from anywhere around the world. No need to go out of the way to get to your consultant’s office. With just a smartphone and an Internet, you can go about it just as effective as doing it face-to-face.

How Remote Hearing Care Works

Now that we’ve mentioned about remote hearing care, let’s discuss how Listening Lab makes this service possible for our clients.

Upon purchasing a smartphone-ready hearing aid, you will still need to visit one of our branches to facilitate hearing aid fitting and activation. In this visit, your consultant will also guide you in downloading the necessary mobile apps needed for utmost effectivity of your device.

For instance, you are streaming a video from your smartphone and you decide to adjust it by yourself. However, something went wrong and now you can’t seem to figure out how to fix it. All you have to do is open up your mobile app and your hearing care professional will be there in just a while to assist you. After raising your concern, he or she will then recommend necessary adjustment based on your needs. Once you agree, your hearing care professional will be sending a new settings package via the mobile app and you’re all good to go again!

I started experiencing loss of hearing sometimes in 2010 (41 years old) owing to some medical issue. I was having difficulties hearing conservation especially in meeting. Thus, giving me the fear in attending meeting.

Initially I started with Phonak hearing aid. It helps amplified the sound and I could hear better then. Somehow, my hearing loss deteriorated further that in late 2012 (43 years old), there was profound loss of hearing on my right ear. Even digital hearing aid could not help. On my left ear there is still about 50% to 60% hearing with hearing aid. I was lost at this point of time. I was considering learning sign language. I went to see my ENT specialist and my audiologist Mr. Bala advised me to go for an CI as an alternative to my hearing loss.

I also thank God for Engineer and Scientist, giving them the knowledge to create such a complex and sophisticate device to help those with hearing loss like me. It will be all perfect if the cost is affordable too.

We are happy that both the CI and HA have improved mum qualify of life. Now Madam Kek is looking forward to work again to pass her time as she can hear and better communicate with others.

Titus was implanted when he was 18 months old. He is a happy, talkative 6.5 years old now. AB has been with him for 5 wonderful hearing years and we are looking forward to a bright future that lies ahead for him. AB’s Naída CI sound processors are reliable and the technology is constantly evolving and upgrading. When Titus was introduced to Naida Link CROS, his life was enriched. The wireless network established between his Naida CI sound processor and a Naida Link CROS transmitter allows him to hear from both ears. This changes Titus’s life and the way we interact with him. We are also very pleased with the prompt response and service provided to us. The staff in AB genuinely cares! We want to thank AB for making Titus’s hearing journey an enjoyable and a relatively stress free one!

I have been living with progressive hearing loss for more than three decades. Socially, I find myself fearful of communicating with people and at home, watching 'soundless' television programs is a norm.

An unforgettable experience. Trying on a pair of Resound GN hearing aid, I was energized and revitalized and overwhelmed with emotional tears of joy. The Resound GN is truly remarkable and uniquely equipped with three-friendly-user environmental modes that provide hearing comfort wherever we are.

In particular, I like to extend my utmost gratitude to Hearing Consultant. With her profound compassion and wisdom in guiding me, I am confident that I can forge a formidable partnership with the Listening Lab; So that I can rebuild a new chapter of a happy and value-creative life and simultaneously, leaving behind the painful memories of the past three decades.
