Technology is ever-evolving to make our lives better and easier. In less than two decades, we’ve moved from flip phones to smartphones, and as time goes on, smartphones only continue to grow smarter, often complete with features like virtual assistants or facial recognition.
But the improvements to your smartphone are wider reaching than merely improving your ability to communicate with others or access entertainment: Thanks to BlueTooth technology, your smartphone can help you to hear better with smartphone-controlled hearing aids.
What are Smartphone-Controlled Hearing Aids?
As in the name, smartphone-controlled hearing aids allow you to ‘control,’ or rather adjust, your hearing aids using your smartphone. Just like your smartphone, smartphone-controlled hearing aids contain BlueTooth technology, which allows your devices to connect wirelessly.
Once your hearing aids connect with your smartphone, you can make adjustments to your hearing aids with an app. No longer will you need to visit a hearing clinic: From the comfort of your own home, you can adjust your hearing aids to the way that sounds best to you.
Make Adjustments Custom to You
Even if you visit a hearing clinic and receive a hearing test, there’s a strong chance that you’ll have to schedule a few follow-up appointments to ensure that everything sounds like it should. However, with smartphone-controlled hearing aids, you can make these adjustments whenever and wherever.
With HearClear HCEQ Smart Hearing Aids, you can make adjustments to your hearing aids using the SoundWear App on your smartphone. Simply download the app from Apple or GooglePlay store, and from there, you can fine-tune your hearing aids as you see fit.
