The distance in listening environments
Those who use hearing aids occasionally encounter difficult listening environments. Even with the advanced technology that helps block out background noise and has directional microphones, hearing in certain situations is still a challenge for hearing aid users.
Normally, the issue lies in how much distance there is between the sound source or who is talking to the hearing aid user. A long distance can create enough of an obstruction that would cause the hearing aid user to have difficulty with comprehending speech.
Luckily, modern accessories can help improve the sound of the speaker or audio source if it is directly next to the hearing aid wearer.
Remote microphones can help with the distance issue
A speaker can wear a remote microphone to transfer speech sounds directly into the user’s hearing aid device. In some situations they can work with 65 feet of distance between each person.
The Mini Remote Microphone and Remote Microphone Plus from Starkey can provide this assistance.
The Remote Mic Plus allows you to use TeleLoop systems, Bluetooth and FM can be transmitted straight to your hearing aids with the Remote Mic Plus.
Accessories can enhance how you listen to your TV
A speaker system can cause a frustrating experience.
Starkey’s TV streamer can stream sounds from your TV, and other forms of media, directly into your hearing aids. Your family members or significant other will no longer need to ask you to turn the volume down.
Each of these accessories can be used with every line of Starkey’s Livio hearing aids, along with the Thrive Hearing App.
