Bluetooth & Wireless Accessories

What Is The Difference Between Bluetooth & Wireless Accessories?

Some customers have asked us what the difference is between bluetooth and wireless accessories. Bluetooth or bluetooth compatability is present in some hearing aid devices and accessories.

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are both wireless networking standards that provide connectivity via radio waves.

The main difference: Bluetooth’s primary use is to replace cables, while Wi-Fi is largely used to provide wireless, high-speed access to the Internet or a local area network.

Wireless solutions enable you to have better connectivity to other simple technology in your life that people generally take for granted, like telephones and the TV.

For example:

The Phonak TVLink S – this connects your Phonak hearing aids via a remote, to your TV, which allows you to watch TV with the sound as loud as you like and your friends & family aren’t affected. It comes with a remote control for you to adapt your hearing aid programs and volume easily.

The ComPilot which can be purchased separately or as a bundle with the Phonak TVLink, allows you to make hands-free phone calls, without any hearing issues!

All manufacturers have bluetooth solutions for newer models.
