Assistive Listening Devices
Assistive Listening Devices are a great way to get the most out of a pair of hearing aids. Many of these devices work directly with the hearing aids to improve difficult listening environments.
Smart phone compatibility: Automatically stream any sound source (ie: phone calls, music, videos, podcasts…etc.) directly from the phone or tablet to the hearing devices. This connection allows for volume and program changes to be made from the smart device as well.
TV connectivity: Stream the audio from your TV directly to your hearing devices.
Direct connection to home phones: Allows the individual to hear a conversation in both ears simply by answering the home phone as normal.
Remote/spouse microphones: Device worn by another individual allowing their voice to be streamed to an individual’s hearing aids for improved sound quality and understanding. These are great for individuals to hear one-on-one conversations in difficult listening environments.
Caption Call: Offers a phone with either English captioning or Spanish captioning, as well as an iPad app that offers the same. All you need is an internet connection and proof from a licensed professional that you have hearing loss to be eligible.
A Caption Call phone works just as a normal home phone but allows the patient to see the conversation in text format as they are talking.
