We sometimes hear from patients that they have a tough time operating the small buttons on their digital hearing aids. We understand that it can be a real frustration. Fortunately, we have a couple of options that will make it easier for you to personally program and have success with your hearing devices.
While it’s exciting that hearing instruments have become smaller and more trendy, the buttons have also become smaller, or are non-existent, which can present problems if you want to change the way you hear. There are two user-friendly smartphone apps available to help!
If you download the free Audibel T2 Remote app, it will enable your smartphone to function as a wireless remote for adjusting your hearing instruments (available on most Audibel hearing aids). You’ll be able to adjust volume, switch memories and mute your devices if you would like.
The other free downloadable app is TruLink™ Hearing Control, which is for our patients with newer iPhones. This app pairs specifically with the Made for iPhone® Audibel A3i™ Hearing Aids (A3i is the only device this app works with). In addition to allowing you to easily change volume and memories, this app also can be programmed to remember your favorite places and automatically switch to your preferred settings for those locations when you arrive there. It offers a variety of other features worth checking out as well, such as turning your iPhone into a remote microphone.
If you don’t have a smartphone, the SurfLink® Remote accessory is another option to consider. It is a separate remote accessory that will pair with wireless SurfLink enabled hearing aids. Small and lightweight, you can keep it in your pocket or purse and change the settings on your wireless hearing aids just like a television remote.
We want you to have a satisfying experience with your hearing aids and these tools are one way to help you. If you need help deciding which option works best for you – give us a call or email us at:
