We all know that Apple Airpods produces impressive “high fidelity” sound quality through their wireless headphones. I have been waiting to write a thread on using “airpods as a hearing aid” since 2yrs after the launch of Apple Airpods in 2016, that if its possible to use airpods as a hearing aid. And it became true after Apple added a new feature called “Live listen”. Then, i came across another idea of adding a rode microphone or any other good quality external microphone (attached to lightning port) as the iPhone microphone might not be enough to produce sound quality for the hearing disabled people and to use live listen feature.
Now, with Airpods Pro launched with active noise-cancellation (this is big advantage!) and live listen turned on, am pretty sure this will be enough for hearing disabled ppl to understand human voice better.
If any hearing loss persons out there have tested and used airpods for hearing aid purpose for a long time could share their experience. Cause am going to buy airpods pro MAINLY for hearing aids purpose. And i guess airpods pro’s active noise cancellation will surely benefit as a hearing aids.
Hearing loss 50% (mixed) both the ears since higher educaiton. Have used Siemens CIC nitro, now using Sonic flip 80 (built quality bad).
