Hearing Aids: The freedom of wireless connectivity

Posted on June 28, 2011. Filed under: 1, hearing education, hearing educatoin, hearing health | Tags: , , , , |

As the number of sufferers of hearing loss increases, so does the availability of different technological advances. These advances help patients deal with their hearing loss in today’s society. Hearing aids have now become a part of daily life, going from being used a few times a day,  to permanent use in some cases.

Many people with hearing damage rely on television, MP3 players, computers, and other audio sources for entertainment and communication. Hearing aids can now wirelessly connect to these devices with the help of Phonak’s new iCom- the communication interface.

As the Phonak website explains, iCom “offers the most convenient way to interface any wireless Phonak hearing aid (excl. Petite models) to modern communication devices.”  The iCom allows a hearing aid to connect wirelessly to devices with Bluetooth technology. According to Phonak, it also “offers a 3.5mm stereo jack for cabled connections and can integrate an FM receiver via europlug.”

You can choose which signal to accept or decline, whether it is a call or audio streaming. For more information on ways to improve your quality of life when suffering from hearing damage, do not hesitate to visit your local Miami hearing center.
