— Beltone, a leader in patient-focused hearing technology for over 70
years, has announced SmartRemote™—the first-ever app that allows hearing
aid wearers to use their iPhone® as a “remote control” to discreetly
adjust their hearing instruments. SmartRemote can be downloaded from the App
Store℠ at no cost.
Beltone developed the SmartRemote app in response to what hearing aid
wearers wanted most: a great listening experience in multiple
environments, ease-of-use, and complete discretion.
Beltone’s award-winning 2.4 GHz wireless streaming technology underpins
the new SmartRemote app. By pairing their hearing aids with the new
Direct Phone Link 2 and the SmartRemote app on their iPhone, the hearing
instrument wearer can use their iPhone to privately adjust hearing aid
volume in one or both ears, change listening programs to match their
environment, mute background noise during a phone conversation, and more.
“Beltone’s hearing aid innovations, such as our wirelessly-streaming
Direct Phone Link 2, allow hearing-aided people to enjoy their
electronic devices in new ways,” says Beltone President, Todd Murray.
“And now, our new SmartRemote app gives our customers a superior
listening experience combined with the convenience they desire.”
