According to the company, the HearPlus app compatible devices now include Samsung Galaxy S4, S6, S6 Edge, and Samsung Note 4. The HearPlus app is already compatible with Samsung Galaxy S5 and all Apple iOS devices (iPhone*, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple Watch). In addition to the main devices, the company says the app is available for sub variations of the main models, such as Samsung Galaxy S5 mini, S5 Plus, and S6 Plus. This expanded capability is intended to allow more people to enjoy discreet and personalized control of their advanced hearing aids through their smartphones.
“We are excited to be able to further enhance accessibility for people with hearing loss, allowing more wearers to personalize their hearing,” said John Cariola, AuD, director of product management. “Our latest developments will now allow a larger population to enjoy the full benefits of controlling their hearing aids remotely, as well as manage their tinnitus symptoms, in a simple and discreet way.”
According to Beltone, the HearPlus app allows users to set preferred volume, treble and bass levels; further personalize listening experience through speech, background noise and wind noise adjustments; geo-tag frequently visited places – such as home, work, favorite restaurants and more – to automatically update profiles and adjust to specific acoustics; locate misplaced hearing aids with the “Finder” feature; check hearing aid battery levels, and manage tinnitus symptoms through built-in customizable sound therapy.
