How to pair hearing aids with your iPhone

Hearing aids now offer far more than just enhanced hearing. You can now turn your hearing aids into wireless headsets by pairing them with your iPhone and other Apple devices. Smart hearing aid technology now enables you to connect your digital hearing aids to accessories, apps and other smart devices, such as your iPhone. You can stream audio straight into your ears or conveniently adjust your hearing-aid settings with just a few taps of your iPhone.

Why connect hearing aids to iPhone?

There are several hearing aids now available that have direct-to-iPhone and Bluetooth capability. ReSound is just one example of a manufacturer providing hearing aid users with the opportunity of pairing ReSound hearing aids to iPhone. Pairing your hearing aids with your iPhone allows you to control your hearing aid settings, change the volume, check the battery life, stream audio from any Bluetooth-enabled device and even switch between different program presets to pick up speech in specific environments.
