Could my dreams be coming true? All my life I have wondered why haven’t they made a hearing aid that send transmissions so I can hear the radio or television? Well folks… now they have. It is incredible the changes in technology that have been implemented into hearing devices both for the hard of hearing and for the normal hearing person. Have you seen some of the neat technology that is ear level? All the fancy bluetooth headsets and wireless earphones for the iPod?

Now that technology is available in hearing instruments for the hard of hearing. More and more manufacturers are taking a closer look at helping the hard of hearing consumer connect with technology that normal hearing people take for granted. I love being able to tell my patients that they can enjoy their iPod, their TV, their cell phone the way they want to.

Check these two manufacturers for more information on hearing aids that can connect you to a whole new world of sounds. [be sure to watch the videos]
