Do Bluetooth Hearing Aids Work Different Than Regular Hearing Aids?

Traditional hearing aids are equipped with a microphone, processor, receiver, and power source to transmit sounds to the user. Bluetooth hearing aids function the same as traditional devices, enabling users to enjoy a streamlined, all-in-one listening experience. When your hearing aids are Bluetooth capable, you can connect them to your tablet, television, or smartphone to stream the sound directly into your device. 

Below, the experts at True North Hearing discuss the key differences between Bluetooth and traditional digital hearing aids. We’re happy to answer questions and provide further information about the hearing aids we have available for patients throughout Acton, MA, and the surrounding areas. Reach out to our hearing care professionals today to learn more. 

How Smart Hearing Aids Make Life Easier    

Hearing aids, no matter what features they include, are designed to make life easier for those with hearing loss. You can turn your Bluetooth hearing aids into a wireless headset by connecting them remotely to various devices. Some of the most notable features of Bluetooth hearing aids include:

  • Phone Conversations Are Clearer – You can connect Bluetooth hearing aids to any smartphone, so your phone conversation will be sent directly through your hearing aids, resulting in clearer speech.
  • Choose Your Own Volume – When your Bluetooth hearing aids are connected to your TV, you can watch the program at a volume level you prefer while your family and friends can enjoy it in their preferred setting.
  • Listen to Music & Podcasts – When you have Bluetooth hearing aids, you don’t need to swap out your devices for headphones. You can connect wirelessly to your favorite music playlists, podcasts, or audiobooks.
  • Enjoy Better Sound Quality – Because the sound is directly streamed through your Bluetooth hearing aids, you don’t have to struggle to video chat with loved ones or enjoy your favorite videos.

Are Bluetooth Hearing Devices Better?

Bluetooth connectivity doesn’t automatically make hearing aids function better. They allow users to connect their hearing aids with any Bluetooth-enabled electronic device easily. While they provide a wide range of benefits to users, there can be some drawbacks to using Bluetooth hearing aids, including the following:  

  • There can be connectivity issues between devices  
  • The batteries on Bluetooth hearing aids run out of power more quickly 
  • People around you might not realize you’re listening to something else through your Bluetooth hearing aids when they try to talk to you
