Phone calls (from line phones) and smartphones are an integral part of everyday lives for many of us. However, this is not a given for individuals with hearing loss. Do you know that many hearing impaired individuals are unable to hear well over the phone?
In the past, the distant voice quality over a handset, coupled with one’s hearing loss made conducting phone conversations practically impossible. This meant missing out on the joys of social conversations, and made staying connected with loved ones overseas a constant challenge, even with a hearing aid on.
The advance digital hearing aids of today are designed with Bluetooth capability, and are designed to connect wirelessly to audio devices such as smartphones and televisions. This enables incoming signals to be transmitted to hearing aids on both ears simultaneously – greatly enhancing voice volume and quality. Patients can now make quality telephone conversation and enjoy their favourite TV programs again.
