Use your Android device with your hearing aid

Audio streaming

If your Android smartphone and your hearing aids both directly support Android Streaming to Hearing Aids functionality, you can download and install the Beltone HearMax app, open it and press “Get started”. Once the hearing aids are paired with your smartphone, you can stream audio directly. 

Direct stereo streaming from Android is available for the following Beltone hearing aids:

Note: The direct audio streaming requires minimum Android 10 and Bluetooth® 5.0, and that Android Streaming to Hearing Aids has been enabled by the phone manufacturer. 

If you have already paired your hearing aids to your Android devices, and you are upgrading to Android 10, you may need to repeat the paring process for your hearings aids to work. Please click here to read the instructions under question 'I can’t get direct Android streaming to work - what do I do?'. (link to section)

If direct Android streaming is not supported by your hearing aids or Android smartphone, you can use the Beltone Phone Link2 to stream sound. The Beltone Phone Link2 enables you to connect your Beltone hearing aids to any Bluetooth v.2.0 Android device.
