Benefits of Streaming Products
Although your hearing aids are ready to operate right out of the box once you put batteries in, there are a number of assistive technology devices that you can use in conjunction with your hearing aids. Because many of these assistive technology devices operate using Bluetooth® technology, you’ll get the most out of these when you have Bluetooth hearing aids.
How the Products Work
These devices work to make your life easier. They are designed with communication and entertainment applications in mind, helping to transform your hearing aids into a personal wireless headset.
AGX MediaLink Phone Adapter
Connects with your existing landline phone, transforming your hearing aids into a wireless headset that allows you to answer calls using the Streamer Pro. When you receive a phone call, an alert is sent to your hearing aids. You no longer have to run for the phone, miss calls, or have issues with feedback — just clarity and ease of use while talking to your loved ones.
AGX MediaLink TV Adapter
Connects to your television to wirelessly transmit the sound of your favorite TV programs and movies to your hearing aids, without disrupting others with changes in volume. You can still answer cell phone or landline calls while connected to the TV with the push of a button on the Streamer Pro.
AGX MediaLink Streamer Microphone
Regardless of how healthy your hearing is, everyone has a difficult time understanding speech in certain noisy environments. For these demanding situations, the MediaLink Streamer Microphone is a discreet clip-on microphone that puts the speaker’s voice right in your ears. You enjoy clear, private communication and a one-on-one experience, even in the most crowded areas.
AGX MediaLink Streamer Pro
Acts as a gateway to the audio sources you wish to hear. Any technology you own that has built-in Bluetooth — such as a TV, iPod®, tablet, PC, or smart phone — can connect to the Streamer Pro wirelessly to send the sound straight to your hearing aids. If your TV or computer doesn’t have built-in Bluetooth, the device can connect to the Streamer Pro via a mini-jack cable. The Streamer Pro also allows for control over the hearing aids’ volume and for hands-free cell phone calls straight to the units.
What Can I Connect to Through Streaming Devices?
The purpose of the streaming products is to enhance communication in all aspects:
- Face-to-face conversation
- Watching TV
- Listening to music
- Chatting online or over the phone
There’s an App for That
There are countless apps that connect to your hearing aids, helping you do the things you want to do — with ease.
Android or iPhone®
Some apps connect your Made for iPhone® or Android hearing aids, turning them into customizable units with features that improve your listening experiences. These apps allow you to stream phone calls, FaceTime® audio, music, and sound from your television or computer using Bluetooth® technology.
Your cell can also act as a remote control and microphone for your devices. The remote feature allows you to change the volume of your Bluetooth hearing aids quickly and easily, while the live microphone offers extra amplification to ensure that you don’t miss a moment of conversation. The microphone feature can also record, play back, and email audio as it happens.
Other applications allow you to remotely adjust bass and treble to make hearing in certain environments easier. They can also save those adjustments so that when you return to a specific location, your devices readjust automatically.
Lost Your Hearing Aid? We’ve Found Your Solution
There are also apps that help you keep tabs on your devices. Features like Find My Hearing Aids emit a tone that helps you detect how close you are to your hearing aids.
