What are the top 5 features of Bluetooth hearing aids?

Bluetooth hearing aids are practical, easy to use and efficient. Below are five compelling reasons that make them an indispensable device:

Wireless audio transmission from smart devices

Thanks to Bluetooth, audio arrives directly in the hearing aid, ensuring a seamless listening experience suitable for even the most active lifestyle. Words and sounds are perceived more clearly because the hearing aid filters out background noise, whether it's the hustle and bustle of city life or any disruptive sounds that could interfere with your conversation or enjoyment of your favorite podcast.

Fine tuning of volume

The sound of Bluetooth-enabled hearing aids can be customised based on each person's hearing needs.

Hearing aids & Voice assistants

Voice assistants like Siri or Google Assistant are here to assist you with any query or command, delivering prompt responses directly to your ears through Bluetooth-enabled hearing aids.

Hands-free calling

Bluetooth technology offers an indispensable convenience: hands-free calls. You can manage calls effortlessly through your hearing aids, enjoying the freedom to move around with ease.

"Find My Hearing Aid" function

And if you happen to have misplaced your hearing aid, finding it is easy: just open the associated app and select the appropriate function. Convenient and immediate. 

The apps on the App Store and Play Store are different and depend on the model and brand of the hearing aid you have. However, all of them have various functions that allow you to manage many aspects of your hearing aids, such as adjusting the volume, checking the battery level, customising the sound, but also getting support from hearing specialists.

The Amplifon App is available for Android and iPhone and allows you to: 

  • Control the volume of the device

  • Reduce the noise of external agents, such as city noise or the wind, to focus on the words you are listening to

Whether you're enjoying a podcast, making a video call, or asking Siri or Google a question, Bluetooth technology delivers numerous advantages, and the potential for even greater advancements in the years ahead is promising. In the future, we expect to see smaller, user-friendly devices with extended battery life, still powered by Bluetooth.
