Have you heard the news?

Do you do well with your hearing aids except for television? Except for using your cell phone? Except for hearing in a restaurant? Did you know that there are accessories that work with many hearing aids? These accessories can connect to your television, pair to your cell phone, or pair to a mini microphone that your family member of friend can wear. They can connect directly to your hearing aids and significantly improve your hearing in these situations.

Many hearing aids manufactured in the past 5 years have a built-in antennae that connects to accessories. While the specific signal that each manufacturer uses can vary, most of the major manufacturers have options for almost every need. Some require a body-worn relay, called a streamer, that hangs around your neck. Others are able to work directly with the hearing aids.

Alternatively, some hearing aids have a telecoil. A telecoil is another way to use a landline telephone. Many hearing aids have a built-in coil. Some venues, such as PPAC, have assistive listening devices that you can borrow. The devices can connect to your telecoil for better hearing in these situations.

Many hearing aid manufacturers are now offering a rechargeable hearing aid option for those who have limited dexterity or visual problems that make it difficult to change the batteries. Some of us prefer the convenience of plugging in our hearing aids alongside our cell phone or tablet at night. 


Whether it is for ease of use or convenience, the number of manufacturers offering a rechargeable product is growing. Currently, all of the options are either a behind-the-ear (BTE) or receiver-in-the-canal (RIC, pictured above). Custom in-the-ear (ITE) products will be available in the near future as well.
