Bluetooth Hearing Aids: What You Need to Know Before You Buy

You’ve probably heard about Bluetooth, and you may have even heard that most hearing aid wearers consider it a “must-have feature” for their hearing aids. But what exactly is it? And why do you need it? Read ahead to learn more!

What is Bluetooth?

In short, Bluetooth is a wireless communication technology that uses radio waves to securely transmit data between electronic devices. Many modern technologies employ Bluetooth technology, including:
  • Smartphones
  • GPS devices
  • Wireless earbuds
  • Computers
  • Smart TVs
  • Automobile interfaces
Hearing aids are just the latest devices to use convenient Bluetooth technology.

What are Bluetooth hearing aids?

Bluetooth hearing aids are a technological advancement that lets those with wireless hearing aids eliminate the need for a secondary device to capture sound. Thanks to Bluetooth, your hearing device can connect directly to a smartphone. No more switching between devices—now you can do everything right from your hearing aids.

Benefits of Bluetooth hearing aids

The benefits of having Bluetooth in your hearing aids is clear: you can connect to your smartphone for easy streaming at the push of a button. With select models, including the Beltone Achieve, this functionality is further enhanced by the ability to take phone calls hands-free.
Bluetooth technology helps to eliminate normal annoyances found with traditional hearing aids, such as:
  • Static noise interference and feedback from using other devices in conjunction with your hearing aids
  • Missing audio when turned away from a speaker
  • Clumsy transitioning between multiple devices
