Stay Connected with Wireless Hearing Aids During COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has been hard on many people. It has made in-person interaction with friends and family difficult, if not impossible. The social distancing and quarantine norms have forced us to change our lifestyles and adopt several safety measures to ensure we keep ourselves and others safe. This has led to isolation and an increased feeling of loneliness.
If you also experience hearing loss, the difficulties you may face can feel overwhelming. This makes it essential to be taking care of your hearing health and learn about new technological advancements that can make your new normal as comfortable as possible.
The Importance of Wireless Hearing Aids
Wireless hearing aids often feature some of the latest and greatest hearing aid technology. Many of them are able to be paired with devices you already own, helping to improve their functionality. Several companies also create unique accessories to enhance certain situations.
Connecting with Loved Ones
Today’s latest hearing aids allow users to connect with family, friends and loved ones wirelessly. Clear, hands-free audio from phone calls can be streamed directly to your hearing aids, making it easier to hear the other person and keep the conversation flowing. Many of these wireless hearing aids also feature Bluetooth technology, letting you easily interact with loved ones by connecting to compatible devices and apps such as Facetime on your iPad. This can provide you with the opportunity to see, chat and spend time with children and grandchildren virtually when it isn’t possible to be there physically.
Improving Your Daily Life During COVID
Watching television shows and movies have become a favourite activity as we spend more time indoors. However, hearing loss can make sounds and speech from the television come across muffled and unclear. When paired with a wireless TV connector, wireless hearing aids provide a clearer and more enjoyable television experience. The sound is sent directly through your hearing aids, making it easier to understand. With automatic connectivity, all you need to do is turn on the TV, adjust the volume to your preference, and enjoy your show.
Assistive Listening Devices Can Make Things Easier
Many companies create accessories to go with their wireless hearing aids to suit every need and situation. Be sure to speak with us to find options that are compatible with your hearing devices.
TV Connector – An easy-to-use and easy-to-setup device that can automatically detect any compatible hearing aids within a specific range. This device streams sound from TVs and stereo systems to an unlimited amount of hearing aids, letting multiple people use it at once.
Wireless Microphone – An easy-to-use, portable device that allows you to adhere to the social distancing norms. When you point it toward the person speaking, their voice will be streamed directly to your hearing aids.
