I have enjoyed reading the comments from this group and wish I knew enough about this technology to keep-up! You guys are amazing. I hope that some of you might be able to break down some of these devices so I can start learning … I’m lost! Hearing aids are a whole new area of technology for me and I can’t figure out where to start. Any suggestions, links or information is greatly appreciated …
My father has high-pitch hearing loss and struggles with hearing in many situations. I have decided to become more proactive in finding solutions that can help. He has high-quality digital hearing aids and we’re thinking of trying bluetooth hearing aids. From reading the messages in this forum, I understand that there are some great possibilities with bluetooth. I get confused with the devices that have been mentioned and hope to get some help!
My father is interested in getting an iPhone (3Gs). I believe I read that some of the members here have been successful with pairing bluetooth hearing aids directly with the new iPhone? Is the volume/clarity working well for telephone conversations? Is there any bluetooth adapters for a land line?
I understand that there are bluetooth accessories for TV that can be paired with bluetooth hearing aids. This seems like it could be a huge improvement over wireless headphones. Has anybody found this helpful? Is one brand considered better than another?
I’ve seen some of the members here mention a “box” that can be placed on a table to help hear conversations, meetings, etc. Has anybody found this helpful? Does it help control background noise? Going out to dinner or being in a room with background noise is so difficult for my Dad. I hope this could be a solution.
It seems like sending the sound into the ear via bluetooth would create better sound quality because there’s no outside noise. Does it work like this? Are there other devices we should test while he has the “free trial”?
Thank you all!!!
