Cell Phone Usage
I’m sure some of you have experienced this (and if you haven’t count yourself lucky) with modern hearing aids and you try to talk on a cell phone, but there is this whistling occurring. This is due to interference happening from radiofrequency emitted by your cell phone.
This causes it to be nearly impossible to talk on the phone; Though it’s not the case anymore. Using Bluetooth Hearing Aids to connect to your cell phone makes calls crystal clear.
By streaming directly to your hearing aids, it eliminates environmental noises that usually are getting in the way. Enjoy your calls at Starbucks (or another local coffee shop), on a walk, or in a noisy subway – the options are endless.

Watching TV/Streaming Music
Watching TV can be hard with hearing loss. Even at max volume, the conversation can seem distant or mumbled. Headphones are an alternative to watching TV or listening to music. Still, they can get uncomfortable and can be potentially dangerous.
You can eliminate the use of headphones by streaming TV or music straight to your hearing aids. Sound is more precise, and it is safer to use than headphones.

How Do Bluetooth Hearing Aids Work?
In general, Bluetooth helps two or more electronic devices share information or sound wirelessly. It uses high-frequency radio waves to share this information.
With hearing aids, Bluetooth slightly differs. They use what is called Bluetooth low energy, which reduces the amount of power consumed yet maintains its ability to communicate information efficiently.
Here is a video by WebMD to show how hearing aids, in general, transmit sound to your ear.

Regulation Law Update Coming in 2020:
I talk about this a bit in a different article but wanted to go over an important fact. The new regulation law says there will be a new category of hearing aids – over-the-counter hearing aids.
With this option, customers can do their fitting, programming, and control it without a professional. This seems like a benefit but can be dangerous as well.
It is always good to seek the help of a professional. They can tell you how severe your hearing loss is. There are sounds you may not even realize you were missing. So, always refer to an audiologist – they’re the expert.
