And for current users, having a full catalog of upgraded devices is much better than being limited to one brand.

Hearing Aid Products and Accessories by Manufacturer
Bluetooth Hearing Aids
With the addition of Bluetooth technology, users are able to interface with compatible products wirelessly. This includes smartphones, tablets, televisions, landlines, smart watches, computers and more. The possibilities are endless, and all without lowering the quality/bitrate of the audio being streamed from the device.
Cell phone accessories
Accessories extend the functionality of hearing devices based on what the user wants. The main technology that is implemented in this category is telecoil, also known as t-switch. Most modern hearing aids are already equipped with the technology that can be activated automatically, or with a button press. Designed to be used with the neckloop accessory, patients can opt in for using wireless or a wired option. It is the easiest solution for users that want to bridge hearing aids to compatible devices. Once everything is setup, audio is much clearer and focused when visiting larger environments.
