Over the past couple of years, we’ve witnessed the evolution in functionality and features of hearing aids. Before, hearing aids required numerous adjustments, and even then, they didn’t fully execute hearing needs.
Today, hearing aids are way smaller than before, with sleek designs that fit perfectly. Some are even unnoticeable.
With several technological advancements and innovations came Bluetooth enabled hearing aids. This means you can easily connect your hearing aids to your smartphone to elevate and improve your hearing experience. The feature is pretty cool and convenient in ways you can’t even begin to imagine!
What is a Bluetooth Enabled Hearing Aid?
Bluetooth technology is not necessarily a new concept. It has been in the market for quite some time. But, for clarification purposes, let’s define what it is.
Bluetooth is a wireless communication technology that uses high-frequency radio waves to enable connectivity between two or more devices within a short range to safely and securely facilitate sound and information transfer. Most, if not all, of our electronic devices support Bluetooth connectivity.
Till recently, hearing aid users were limited in accessing audio from particular devices. Listening to music or watching TV was such a strenuous task. Therefore, users were forced to switch from regular hearing aids to headphones to enjoy the best of both worlds.
But, luckily, all that hassle is a tale of the past. Currently, there are great and highly functional hearing aids such as Orka One with Bluetooth technology to create a smart user experience.
The best part is, enabling Bluetooth connectivity on your hearing aids is very easy. Orka One users can download an app from the App Store or Play Store and control everything from their smartphones or tablets. Therefore, you can easily switch from one mode to another, preset, adjust, and fine-tune without using your hearing aid buttons. Pretty cool, right?
Advantages of Bluetooth Enabled Hearing Aids
Bluetooth hearing aids are packed with numerous benefits that enhance user experience. These include;
- Multiple Device Connectivity
Bluetooth hearing aids can be connected with multiple every-day use devices, i.e., radios, portable speakers, TVs, smartphones, etc. For example, the Orka One Bluetooth feature is all rounded. Therefore, you can connect it to all types of systems, i.e., Windows, Mac, Android, IOS, etc.
This makes the hearing aids highly flexible for multiple uses, reducing the additional cost of buying separate headphones to use on certain occasions.
With the Bluetooth feature, users can enjoy a more personalized experience. For example, when watching TV with your family and friends, you can increase your hearing aids without increasing the volume of the TV. In other words, you are at liberty to control the volume and pitch using custom settings to suit your individual needs.
Think of it as having a hands-free headphone which you can adjust as you wish without disturbing others. Imagine how convenient the hearing aids are.
- Hands-Free Mobile Experience
Hand-free mobile experience means that sounds can be directly transmitted to your hearing. For example, when using Orka One hearing aids, the device automatically switches to phone-call mode once you receive a call. You don’t have to pick up the phone. All you have to do is double-tap to receive the call. Just like that, easy peasy.
The hands-free feature comes in handy when doing outdoor activities, exercising, or driving.
- Directly Stream Music
Traditional hearing aids were limiting for music lovers. However, since Bluetooth hearing aids can be connected to your smartphone, you are free to stream music directly from your phone to your hearing aid.
The coolest part is when using Orka one hearing aids, you can listen to music while also hearing what is happening in your surroundings. Unlike when using headphones, you will be cut off from your immediate environment and fully connected to one particular audio source.
For example, when working out, you can listen to music and still hear the gym instructor call your name.
- Wireless Connectivity
Gone are the days where multiple wires and lines were needed to connect devices. The Bluetooth features allow you to connect your hearing aids to your phone wirelessly.
To make it even better, technologically advanced hearing aids like Orka One come with an app enabling users to remotely control, adjust settings, and switch between programs without pressing a single button.
