How to Connect your Hearing Aids with Bluetooth Devices?


Hi my name is Tracy Saunders and I’m an Audiologist
with Hearing Solutions. I’m registered with CASLPO, the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language
Pathologists of Ontario. Today we’re going to talk about how to pair your hearing aids
with a Bluetooth device. Hearing aids can be paired with many different devices. Some
devices already have Bluetooth built in, such as cell phones, laptops and tablets. Other
devices don’t have Bluetooth built in and would require a Bluetooth adapter, but that
would enable devices, such as televisions and even home phone landlines to be connected
to your hearing aids. In today’s episode I’m going to show you how to connect hearing aids
to your cell phone. Let me start by putting my hearing aids in and turning them on. Now
in my cell phone, I’m going to access the screen that allows me to look at my Bluetooth.
So, I’m going to go into settings…Bluetooth and look for devices. On the Bluetooth streamer
I’m going to set it up into pairing mode. When the streamer’s pairing mode it will flash
a blue signal. Once the streamer is flashing a blue signal it may take a few minutes for
your cell phone or your Bluetooth device to find the streamer. So just give it some time.
Once I see the name of my streamer, I click on it and it will ask me for a pairing code.
With hearing aids, the pairing code will always be zero, zero, zero, zero. There, now I’ve
paired my hearing aids to my cell phone. I’m going to put the streamer around my neck and
the phone in my pocket. I can now take phone calls hands-free. So, if somebody calls me
I’ll be able to hear the conversation directly through my hearing aids. So, I’ll hear the
phone call in both ears, at a volume that’s clear for my hearing loss. When the phone
call comes in I simply have to press the button. Enjoy making phone calls from your hearing
aids. It really is quite handy. My name is Tracy Saunders and I’m an audiologist with
Hearing Solutions. Thanks for joining today’s episode where I spoke about how to pair your
hearing aids with Bluetooth devices. See you next time.

  1. I assume therefore that you buy the streamer for the name brand hearing aids that you have. which in my case is Oticon. It is very expensive to buy approximately $375 at this time. Then if you want a separate microphone to pair for business meetings etc that is an additional cost. There is no generic streamers that I am aware of that would work with all Bluetooth hearing aids. If there is such a device please let me know where I could get one.

  2. Transcripts need to be enabled, where you see the icon 'cc' in the lower right corner. You can also view transcripts here at this link: https://www.hearingsolutions.ca/how-connect-your-hearing-aids-you-bluetooth-devices. We apologize for any inconvenience.

  3. I was speaking to an Audiologist who is helping me get hearing aids hopefully. She mentioned i would get the best brand that have blue tooth. I guess that's good. I guess i will know in a week.

  4. Hi, and thanks for the video!  Do all hearing-aids have a bluetooth streamer-device?
    If not, – which hearing-aids can connect directly to an iPhone, – without the need to carry a bluetooth-streamer around the neck?

  5. She says: Hearing aids can be paired with many Bluetooth devices, some devices already have Bluetooth built in, others don't have Bluetooth built in and would require an Bluetooth adapter, but that would enable television and even phone line to be connected to your hearing aids.
