It has been reported that a new range of visual and hearing solutions is becoming a priority. Due to electrical interference between mobile phone systems and hearing aids, it can be difficult to hear phone conversations properly, and this can be made worse with certain mobile phone or hearing aid models. Until recently, mobile phones were designed and manufactured with predominantly the able-bodied in mind, however, thanks to increasing competition between the likes of Apple and Google’s Android, this looks set to change, including support for a range of Bluetooth digital hearing aids.

Naturally interested by updates and developments within the industry, the experts at Hidden Hearing were quick to respond to the recent news.

“It’s really encouraging to see some of the major technology companies starting to take those with sight or hearing disabilities into consideration when developing their products. Often those with hearing aids will avoid answering phone calls through fear or embarrassment over not being able to hear the other person properly.”

A representative from Hidden Hearing goes on to explain the benefits of Bluetooth technology.

“Those looking into their first hearing aid would be well advised to consider models with wireless technology. Hearing aids with this technology fitted allow the user to hear more clearly through using binaural communication between the right and left hearing aid. This provides a stereophonic sound that seems more natural than with previous without it. Hearing aids can also be linked up to other devices wirelessly (such as televisions and sat-navs) so that sound it delivered directly into the ear.”

With more than 40 years’ experience in treating hearing loss, Hidden Hearing is entrusted with the care of thousands of people each year. The firm has 84 hearing centres across the UK, all catering for a range of needs and budgets.
