Bluetooth Hearing Aids [Best of 2021]

What are the best Bluetooth hearing aids and what are some of the coolest new features? In this video I take a look at our most popular styles and features, pros & cons, some tips for buying, and finally, what the future holds for Bluetooth hearing aids. WATCH

All about bluetooth hearing aids

You’ve heard of smart TVs, smart speakers, smart phones, but...smart hearing aids? Yes! What makes a hearing aid smart?

It’s simple. A hearing aid’s ability to connect (via Bluetooth) to mobile phones and other devices makes it a smart hearing aid, or as it’s more commonly known, a Bluetooth hearing aid.

Bluetooth hearing aids have blown up in popularity, and before you buy your next hearing aids, make sure you understand why, and what they can do for you.

How Bluetooth Hearing Aids Works - Step 1 our of 3

How Bluetooth hearing aids work

1

Buy a hearing aid that’s compatible with your phone

How Rechargeable Hearing Aids Works - Step 1 our of 3

iPhones are directly Bluetooth compatible with almost all hearing aids.

If you use an iPhone, you don’t really need to worry about compatibility. Almost all hearing aids on the market are compatible with iPhones. However, to err on the safe side, we recommend discussing compatibility with us, or with your hearing provider, prior to buying your hearing aids.

Android and other phones are directly Bluetooth compatible with fewer hearing aids.

If you use any smartphone or cell phone other than an iPhone, your options for hearing aids that will directly connect to your phone are limited, but increasing over time. For users without iPhones, we usually recommend Phonak hearing aids, as Phonak hearing aids offer the best connectivity across multiple phone manufacturers and operating systems.

2

Pair your hearing aids to your phone

How Rechargeable Hearing Aids Works - Step 2 our of 3

In order for your phone to stream audio to your hearing aids, your hearing aids need to be “paired” to your phone.

If you have other Bluetooth devices, like Bluetooth headphones, or speakers, you’ll be familiar with this pairing process.

However- pairing hearing aids to a phone is not always as straightforward as pairing other Bluetooth devices.

When it’s time to get things paired up, you’ll find specific directions for your hearing aids and phone inside the hearing aid manufacturer’s user guide.

3

Take advantage of the functionality!

How Rechargeable Hearing Aids Works - Step 3 our of 3

Having Bluetooth-connected hearing aids opens up a whole new world of functionality for your hearing aids.

Stream phone calls, music, and more, directly to your hearing aids. Get your hearing aids remotely adjusted by your hearing provider. “Tag” certain locations and the settings of your hearing aids will automatically change next time you’re there- and so much more.

But don’t worry- if you don't want to be bothered with learning all the cool things you can do, you can simply use your smartphone as a sleek remote control for your hearing aids.

Bluetooth hearing aid features

Bluetooth Hearing Aids Features

With each new hearing aid release, we’re seeing new Bluetooth hearing aid features.

Some of these features exist in just about all hearing aids. Below, we refer to these as “Standard Features.”

Other features are more niche, proprietary features, only available through certain brands. Below, we refer to these as “Proprietary, Brand-Specific Features.”

Get familiar with these features before you buy hearing aids. Having (or not having) them, could make or break your experience with hearing aids.

Bluetooth Hearing Aids Feature - streaming audio

Streaming audio

Who needs headphones? Stream audio from your phone, like phone calls, podcasts, music and more, directly to your hearing aids. Simply pair your hearing aids to your smartphone like you would any other Bluetooth device, and you’ll then hear any audio from your phone through your hearing aids. Note: Not all phones and hearing aids play well together- so if you’re interested in streaming audio, discuss this with your ZipHearing sales rep, or local hearing provider, sooner rather than later.

Bluetooth Hearing Aids Feature - remote control

Smartphone app as remote control

Gone are the days of carrying around a remote control for hearing aids. Almost all modern hearing aids have an accompanying app that allows you to remotely control the hearing aids simply and discreetly. Adjust the volume, program, base, treble, and other sound settings of your hearing aids right through your phone. No need to visit your hearing care provider every time you need an adjustment- just do it yourself through the app.

Bluetooth Hearing Aids Feature - remote control

Geotagging

Imagine you’re at the local coffee shop and you’re not hearing as well as you could be. You pull out your phone, adjust your hearing aids through the app, and your hearing improves. Then, via the app, you drop a pin on your location to save it, or “geotag” it. Now next time you’re in the coffee shop, your hearing aids will automatically revert to the sound adjustments you previously made, allowing you to hear your best. We think this is one of the most practical and coolest new applications made possible by Bluetooth hearing aids.

Bluetooth Hearing Aids Feature - remote programming

Remote programming

We always recommend the initial hearing aid fitting and programming session be done in person, with a local hearing care provider, to ensure a good physical fit, and to verify the hearing aids are performing how they should be. But for simple follow up appointments, there’s no need to meet in person. Your hearing provider can make remote adjustments (sometimes in real time), right through your hearing aid’s app. Note: While many hearing aids today are capable of remote programming, it is not yet a service that all hearing providers offer.

Bluetooth Hearing Aids Feature - Find My Hearing Aids

Find my hearing aids

Misplaced your hearing aids? No big deal. As long as you’ve previously paired your hearing aids to your phone, you can use the app to locate your hearing aids. It’s essentially a game of hot and cold via GPS, with your phone directing you to the last location it had a Bluetooth connection with your hearing aids. If this feature is unable to locate your lost hearing aids, don’t panic. If this is the first time you’ve lost your hearing aids, your warranty likely covers replacement devices, subject to a small deductible.

Bluetooth Hearing Aids Feature - Live Listen

Live listen

Use your iPhone as a microphone, sending sound directly to your hearing aids. For example- if you’re having a hard time hearing in a noisy restaurant, you can have your conversation partner put your phone in their shirt pocket. Their voice will be picked up by the phone’s microphone and streamed directly to your hearing aids, giving you a much better signal-to-noise ratio. On Android phones, this feature is found in Settings 》Accessibility 》Hearing enhancement 》Amplify ambient sound.

Bluetooth Hearing Aids Feature - Live Listen

Air tap control

Available in Phonak and Starkey hearing aids

If you’ve used Apple AirPods or other Bluetooth headphones, you’ve likely used this feature before. Air Tap Control lets you answer phone calls, stop & stream music, and adjust other hearing aid settings, by simply tapping your ear. This is a really niche feature that only exists on a select few models that have a motion sensor built in, so if Air Tap Control is an important feature to you, discuss this very early on with your ZipHearing sales rep or local hearing care provider.

Bluetooth Hearing Aids Feature - Live Listen

Speech transcription

Available in Phonak and Starkey hearing aids

Ideally, with an advanced set of hearing aids that have been custom programmed for your unique needs, this feature wouldn’t be needed. But unfortunately, no matter how good your hearing aids are, sometimes it’s just impossible to catch every bit of speech in a noisy environment. Luckily, hearing aid apps do this really well. If your app has a Speech Transcription feature, it’ll capture live speech, or speech from phone calls, and convert it to text, allowing you to read along in almost real time, just like you would with a caption phone.

Bluetooth Hearing Aids Feature - Live Listen

Interactive machine learning

Available in Widex and Starkey hearing aids

Many hearing aids today use machine learning to help you hear your best, but only a few let you be an active participant in that process. Whether it’s through a guided quiz-like experience in the app, or simply the press of a button, interactive machine learning features are an emerging trend that we expect to see more of in the coming years. Don’t worry- taking advantage of these features doesn’t require a degree in computer science. Hearing aid manufacturers have made it easy (and kinda fun) to help teach your hearing aids how you like to hear.

Bluetooth Hearing Aids Feature - Live Listen

Language translation

Available in Starkey hearing aids

Easily communicate with people who speak other languages. Use your phone to capture the speech of an individual. Your phone will print their speech on your phone, in your preferred language, and shortly thereafter, read that speech into your hearing aids. Note that there’s some pretty complicated logic going on behind the scenes, and as a result, this feature does have a slight delay when you’re using it, but we think it’s a small price to pay to be able to communicate with someone in a different language.

Bluetooth Hearing Aids Feature - Live Listen

Fitness & activity monitoring

Available in Starkey hearing aids

While the jury is still (somewhat) out on all the negative health consequences of untreated hearing loss, the science is clear on one thing- hearing health is an important part of overall well being. As a result, there’s an emerging trend in the hearing aid industry of making hearing aids be more holistic health devices- sort of like a FitBit® for the ear. Some hearing aids can track your physical activity, like daily steps, detect if you’ve fallen, and even use embedded sensors to measure your heart rate. But physical health is only half the picture. These hearing aids can also track the brain-health benefits of wearing hearing aids by tracking things like social engagement.

Bluetooth Hearing Aids Feature - Live Listen

Iot "Internet of Things" compatible

Available in Oticon hearing aids

Link your hearing aids to internet-connected devices like baby alarms, smoke detectors, and doorbells. For example, hear an announcement in your hearing aids when your doorbell rings. The applications for this are endless, and we’re excited by the long term potential, but in the interim we’ve heard many reports of this functionality not working how it should. We would caution against choosing a hearing aid primarily for this feature.

Common questions about bluetooth hearing aids

What is the best Bluetooth hearing aid?
According to our hearing aid rating algorithm, as of 07/02/2022, the best bluetooth hearing aid is Oticon More.
How much do Bluetooth hearing aids cost?
The average price of a hearing aid in the US is $2400. This is according to a 2015 report compiled by the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology. Although that figure is not specific to Bluetooth hearing aids, the vast majority of hearing aids today come with Bluetooth, so the figure is valid.
Are Bluetooth hearing aids safe?
Yes. Hearing aids do emit extremely low levels of non-ionizing radiation, but so do smartphones. A smartphone emits much higher levels of radiation than a hearing aid, as much as 2,000 times more.
Are there any disadvantages to having Bluetooth aids?
No, and if you don't think you'll use the Bluetooth features, you don't have to- they are completely optional. If there's any “disadvantage,” it's that even the most expensive Bluetooth hearing aids can be buggy at times, randomly losing connection to your phone.
Are there any invisible Bluetooth hearing aids?
Not really. While some manufacturers do make small in-the-ear hearing aids that have Bluetooth, our advice is to assume that they won't be small enough to be completely hidden. Manufacturers just aren't able to fit all the wireless components inside a hearing aid that is small enough to be truly invisible.
Can I turn off the Bluetooth?
Anytime your hearing aids aren't paired to your phone, the Bluetooth is effectively off. Bluetooth is only “on” when your hearing aids are paired to your phone.
Is it safe to fly with Bluetooth hearing aids?
Yes. When asked by the flight attendant, you may need to turn off the Bluetooth on your phone, but there's nothing you need to do with your hearing aids.
How to pair Bluetooth hearing aids to an iPhone
Note that not all hearing aids can be paired with iPhones. Ask your hearing provider if your hearing aids have this functionality.

Pairing instructions

1. Make sure that your phone's Bluetooth is on. Go to Settings > Bluetooth, and make sure the toggle switch is set to On.

2. Open and close the battery doors on your hearing device. Or, if you use rechargeable hearing aids, switch the hearing aids off and on again, by pressing and holding the toggle down button for 3 seconds to turn them off, and repeating to turn them back on.

3. On your Apple device, go to Settings > Accessibility > Hearing, and select Hearing Devices.

4. Your Apple device will search for your hearing device.

5. Under MFi Hearing Devices, tap the name of your hearing device.

6. Tap Pair when you see the pairing request on the screen. If you have two hearing devices, you'll get two requests. Pairing could take up to a minute.

7. You can start using your hearing device when you see it under MFi Hearing Devices with a check mark.
How to pair Bluetooth hearing aids to an Android phone?
Note that not all hearing aids can be paired with Android phones. Ask your hearing provider if your hearing aids have this functionality.

Pairing instructions

1. Go to the Android phone’s home screen and tap on the “Settings” icon.

2. In the settings menu, tap on the Bluetooth icon.

3. Tap on the slider button to turn Bluetooth on.

4. Open the hearing aid battery doors for 5 seconds, then close the doors. This will put the hearing aids in pairing mode.. Or, if you use rechargeable hearing aids, switch the hearing aids off and on again, by pressing and holding the toggle down button for three seconds, and then repeating to turn the hearing aids back on.

5. On the Android phone, you will now see a message, “Available Devices.”

6. The name of your hearing aid will appear on the screen with a telephone icon next to it. Tap on it to select.

7. A connection beep will be heard in the paired hearing aid.

8. Your Android phone is now connected to your hearing aids.
