Many of today's advanced digital hearing aids are Bluetooth or wireless compatible, meaning they are able to connect wirelessly to various Bluetooth enabled devices and other audio devices such as cell phones, TV's, IPods, and computers. Each major hearing aid manufacturer offers different wireless solutions for their hearing aids, but most often solutions consist of the hearing aid wearer wearing a streaming device to "stream" audio output from an audio device (such as your cell phone) directly to your hearing aids.
Most hearing aids with wireless capabilities are able to connect to landline phones, cell phones, TVs and MP3 players with a simple push a button on a streaming device. These streaming devices essentially turn your hearing aids into a hands free headset, allowing you to hear output from other audio devices through both of your hearing aids at the same time.
