There is a range of hearing aids that has been designed to work with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, in addition to being compatible with the FaceTime app for video calls. Wearing hearing aids can now be cool for teenagers!

New behind-the-ear (BTE) style with push button

Hearing aids from this range boast a new waterdrop design and a push button to customize memory and volume directly on the hearing aid. These models are an excellent choice for teenagers that are not allowed to use their cellphone in class.

A solution to listening challenges and poor sound quality

An application called TruLink is compatible with these models and can be downloaded for free from the App Store. TruLink allows users to slightly modify the sound quality of each memory, making it easier to adapt to the listening environments and conditions of today’s teens. Plus, TruLink’s External Microphone functionality makes it possible to transmit sounds directly to the hearing aids, as well as record, play, and even share audio files through email or social media.

Phone calls and the FaceTime application

This technology is perfect for teenagers who have trouble understanding when talking on the phone. Conversation audio is transmitted directly to the hearing aids, without any intermediary, and without wearers having to hold their iPhone. The hearing aids transmit the voice of the person on the other end of the line directly to the wearer’s ears and send the wearer’s voice signal directly to the other person.

This range of hearing aids is also compatible with the FaceTime app for video calls, which provide visual cues to hard-of-hearing teenagers. This makes lip reading easier and helps prevent misunderstandings and frustration!

Listening to music, movie, and video game audio

Teenage hearing aid wearers can listen to music as well as video, media, and app audio transmitted directly and instantly to their hearing aids from their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. They will enjoy impressive sound quality and the most immersive and personalized experience ever!

Plus, their parents will appreciate the peace of mind provided by the hearing aids’ direct connection to Apple products—and their affordability.

To determine which hearing aids are best for you, consult an audioprosthetist.
