Hands-free music, calls in hearing aid
Beltone First, a hearing aid capable of streaming high-quality stereo sound from an iPhone, iPad and iPod touch without the need for an additional pendant-like device, has hit the market.
Beltone First allows wearers to use their hearing aids to talk on the phone and listen to music without the need for an additional remote control, accessory or pendant.
The accompanying Beltone HearPlus app allows users to set preferred volume levels and treble/bass settings and use geo-tagging to assign and adjust to the acoustics of frequently visited places like home, work, favorite restaurants and more. Beltone HearPlus also features a "Find My Hearing Aid" function to help users pinpoint their hearing aids if misplaced.
According to a news release, Beltone First is the smallest wireless receiver-in-the-ear hearing aid brought to market by Beltone, yet powerful enough to address 90 percent of all hearing losses. The aid uses 2.4 GHz wireless technology and is the first aid to integrate this processing advance with Bluetooth Smart technology.
