Hearing aids that are compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, iPads and apple watch are the latest in the technological innovations that is sweeping the hearing aid industry. Once an iPhone is synced with a hearing aid, it becomes a personal assistive device. Telephone calls and music can be streamed directly to the hearing aid making listening comfortable and enjoyable. The most important advantage is that if telephone calls are streamed to the hearing aids, the wearer can hear the call in both his ears thereby making understanding of telephone conversations extremely easy. The iPhone could act as an extended microphone picking up speech and streaming them directly to the hearing aid user’s ears, thereby making hearing in noisy situations less complicated. These hearing aids are currently available in receiver in canal (RIC) and behind the ear (BTE) models.
