Do you have trouble hearing when using the telephone, even with your hearing aids on?
If it’s an issue with a cell phone, the first thing to check is to see if your hearing aids have bluetooth capability that would allow calls to be streamed directly to your hearing aids! Depending on the age of the devices, an adapter may be needed (we can help you with that!)
Here’s a few other tips if you’re having an issue hearing with a landline telephone, or if your hearing aids and cell phone are not compatible for bluetooth streaming.
- Putting the phone on speakerphone will allow you to use both ears (and both hearing aids!) to hear the call.🤳
- If speakerphone isn’t an option try raising the phone up a little higher so that the speaker of the phone is hovering over your hearing aid instead of your ear canal. This will help the hearing aid to better amplify the call!📞
