I just set up my Cala8’s to stream to my iPad and I’m just thrilled! I like to listen to audiobooks. Long story short, I can hear the books clearly and even walk from room to room (somewhat) and keep the signal. This means I’ll get more of those boring around-the-house tasks done while I listen to books or downloaded podcasts, things I’ve avoided in the past. Clean the basement and be entertained, WooHoo! I haven’t tried it in the car, but will soon.
My iPad is an older, reconditioned model (iPad2, I think), so it will likely work on the newer ones. It was slightly tricky to get them to pair. Here’s what seemed to work:
Turn off the iPad and open the hearing aid battery compartments (to turn them off so you can reset them). Turn the iPad back on and go to General/Accessibility/Hearing Devices. Close the hearing aid batteries and you will see the spinning icon (it’s not real quick on mine) and then asking if you want to pair. Once paired, it seems to keep the connection well. If the second one doesn’t seem to pair, just open the battery compartment and close again. I didn’t use the software that I use with my phone, just the connection under General/Accessibility/Hearing Devices.
