Re: Is it going to be possible to use Blue Tooth with my hearing aids for calls using my iPhone SE?

I talked to my technician at House Ear institute here in LA, and he said, that as long as you keep your hearing aids up, that is, make sure you keep the maintenance of them up, that they will be good for many years. The ComPilot made replacing, but at $300, you can save up for that if necessary. I have had mine now for three years, and love it. Jim

I understand that, Jim, and the thing that is a problem is that within six years or so, we'll probably be told that we need new ones.

Best regards,

Carolyn

It's in the email. But I'll say again. The hearing aids ran approximately $6000. I saved up a long time to get them. Jim

I hate to ask, but how much did your high-end blutoot-enabled Phonak hearing aids cost?

Carolyn, I use my IPhone with my bluetooth hearing aids, but you need
something else to do that. I have a ComPilot. It is small, and what it does
is direct the phone call from your IPhone to your hearing aids. But... you
have to have the right kind of hearing aid to do that. I have a brand called
Phonak. And, you have to have their high end hearing aid to use the
ComPilot. The ComPilot can also be used to direct TV shows to your hearing
aid directly. So, you hear the show at your volume you want, and whoever is
watching TV with you can have the volume set the way they want. My hearing
aids cost approximately $6000, and the ComPilot about $300. There is also a
microphone you can get for the ComPilot that helps you in places like
stores, and restaurants. If you are with someone, they can wear the
microphone, and you hear what they are saying very clearly. This helps in
crowds etc. Anyway, if you want more info, write me off list if you like, or
just answer here. Hope this helps. Jim

Do any of you know if it is going to be possible to use Blue
Tooth with Blue Tooth capable hearing aids for my phone
calls, and there not be a conflict with VoiceOver? When we
worked with it some yesterday at the audiologist's, there
seemed to be conflict. I think I have heard about people
using it though. I would not be streaming music.

If you pray, don't worry; if you worry, don't pray,
