5 Things You Can Do with Your Smartphone Connected Hearing Aids

Being able to connect your hearing aid to your smartphone can offer you a lot of benefits. We’ve already covered the Best Smartphone Apps for the Hearing Impaired. In this article, we’re looking at 5 things you can do with your smartphone connected hearing aids.

Make Quick Hearing Aid Adjustments

If your hearing aids can connect to your Apple iPhone, you can adjust your hearing aids through your phone. With the Apple Hearing Controls, accessible in your Control Center, you can easily and quickly adjust the volume of your hearing aid.

Find Your Missing Hearing Aids

Misplacing your hearing aids can be frustrating. With the Oticon ON App, the ‘Last Location’ feature will show you where your hearing aid and phone were last together. This can help you identify where you likely left your hearing aid devices.

Hearing Voice Searches in Your Hearing Aids

Have you ever asked your smartphone assistant a question? Whether “Hey Siri” or “Ok Google”, voice searches have become more and more common. Thankfully, smartphones are getting far better at understanding what we’re actually saying! Compatible hearing aids linked to your smartphone can play responses from Siri or Google directly into your hearing aid. Never miss an answer again.

Stream Audio From Movies or TV

Many of us use smart devices. Smart phones, smart TVs, even smart assistants have all become commonplace in our homes. If your hearing aids are paired with your smart device, you can watch your favorite movie or TV show and have the audio streamed directly to your hearing aid device.

Turn Your Lights Off

With the Oticon ON app, you can “Trigger your lights, home alarm or smart thermostat when you turn your hearing aids on or off.” Talk about future tech!
