‘Wireless hearing aids’ (also Bluetooth hearing aids) mean that we can connect wirelessly to electronic devices with audio outputs, such as TV’s or phones. This has been a wonderful way to hear TV, music and the phone, as all the audio signals go through the  the hearing aid!

The problem though is that they haven’t been truly ‘wireless’ as the hearing aid user MUST wear a neckloop in order to transmit the sound into the hearing aids. Some people like the neckloops while other don’t. However, The ReSound Alera has now overcome this!

For TV,  the ALERA hearing aids directly receive the signal from the TV plug in device

For the phone – the wearer wears a very neat and small clip, instead of a neckloop with a built in aerial.

And Resound have also now introduced a nice remote control for added versatility.
