Phonak's Audeo B-Direct: first hearing aid with universal direct mobile phone connection

Techstination feature for Friday, December 8, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    Building more tech into hearing aids.   Phonak has created the first hearing aid with a universal direct mobile phone connection.  The Audeo B Direct is small, comfortable and very versatile.    It pairs with any cell phone and with your TV through a connector hub.  It can make a huge difference. Life changing for many.  Phonak’s Dr. Christine Jones says an app lets you control how much ambient sound you hear while you are listening…

“So sometimes I want to be fully immersed in theatre quality sound.  I want to feel the effects and I want to hear the richness of music and then I can have a very full focus.  Other times, I want to sit around and chat with somebody and just kind of monitor the TV for a news story or something in the background.”

There's more info and even an online hearing test at Phonak.com.
