Accessories are optional devices that work with your hearing aids to help you hear more effectively. They can improve your listening experiences by providing more convenient operation of your hearing aids, allowing you to connect to audio sources like MP3 players, assisting with talking on the telephone or helping you become more aware of your surroundings. Many types of accessories are available to enhance your listening experience including:
Convenience and wireless accessories– Devices that make adjustments to your hearing aids automatically or that assist with making changes discreetly.
Alerting & Safety- A hearing and alerting system that provides awareness of household alerts, including doorbell, telephone and smoke detectors. Alerting can be provided through visual and vibration cues through a remote control and also by beep signals sent directly to the hearing aids.
Specialized accessories – Products designed for specific types of hearing loss.
Assistive listening devices (ALDs) – Accessories that help you hear in particular listening situations (i.e. when on the telephone, watching TV or while asleep).
Your hearing healthcare professional can offer you advice on which accessories will work best for your specific listening needs and hearing loss.
