High-tech hearing

BANGOR — Beltone has recently introduced Beltone First, a hearing aid capable of streaming high-quality  stereo sound from an iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Wearers can utilize their hearing aids to talk on the phone and listen to music in high-quality stereo sound without the need for an additional remote control, accessory, or pendant.

Wearers can also customize their hearing  experience through the Beltone HearPlus app, which allows users to set preferred volume levels, as well as treble/bass settings, and use geo-tagging to assign and adjust to the  acoustics of frequently visited places like home, work, favorite restaurants, and other locations. Beltone HearPlus also features a “Find My Hearing Aid” function to help users pinpoint their hearing aids if misplaced.

Beltone’s 2.4 GHz wireless technology is behind this latest technological breakthrough. Beltone First is the first  hearing aid on the market to integrate this processing advance with Bluetooth Smart technology.

“We are committed to improving people’s lives through  technology that makes it easier than ever for Beltone wearers to control their hearing aids,” said Beltone President Todd Murray.
