Now that you’re well underway with your hearing aids, are you ready to get connected?
We’re talking about connecting your hearing aids to the devices and tech you use in everyday life. Connectivity is how you elevate the listening experience – whether you’re listening to music, watching television or talking on your smartphone.
Today’s hearing aids are technologically advanced – and with that comes the opportunity to connect to music players, televisions and all different sources of sound. For some connections, you might need an accessory (we’ll get to that in a minute).
Get the Oticon ON App
We’ve developed the Oticon ON App for your smartphone to help you in daily living with hearing aids. The Oticon ON App lets you adjust volume, locate your hearing aids if they go missing, check the battery status, connect to your television – and a whole lot more.
ConnectClip – a personal remote microphone
To get even more out of your Oticon hearing aid, check out ConnectClip. ConnectClip works as a small remote microphone. You can use it to listen to a speaker from a distance, and the sound is picked up by ConnectClip and streamed directly to your hearing aids.
It also allows you to make hands-free phone calls, video calls and more!

Talking on the phone with your hearing aids
If you have an iPhone, you can already hear the voice on the other end of the phone directly in your hearing aids through Bluetooth. All you need to do is pair your hearing aids with your iPhone.
If you have a smartphone other than an iPhone, you can connect to your hearings aids by using ConnectClip.
Because your hearing aids don’t have a microphone in them, there are two good ways of ensuring that the person on the other end of the line can hear you clearly:
- Use a ConnectClip, which serves as an external microphone, and allows you to stream calls to both iPhone and Android phones
- Or make sure you keep your phone close to your mouth
Watching television with your hearing aids
In most cases, your hearing aids should be powerful enough to pick up sound from televisions clearly. If you find that you’re still having difficulty hearing the sound from your television, you can get a TV adapter, which will transmit sound directly to your hearing aids.
