Siemens Aquaris Hearing Aid Line

Posted by KL Tech Muse at 3:08 PM on January 26, 2013

SiemanI grew up with a Grandmother who was hard of hearing and communicating with her was hard and often frustrating. Any time someone introduces an improvement in hearing aid products I am interested.

Siemens showed off their new Aquaris Micon line at CES 2013. The Aquaris line is water proof, dust proof, shock proof. So unlike normal hearing aids you can wear them while working in a dusty environment like a workshop or even swimming. Like all Siemens products the Aquaris line is made of high quality material and is programable. They use the Micon best sound platform that was introduced in November 2012.

The Aquaris line is currently available. It is sold through audiologist and hearing aid providers. The cost will depend on how much the providers charge for their service. Expected cost for both the service and the device is between $1,000 and $2,000.

Belltone Bluetooth Hearing Aid

Posted by Alan at 2:50 PM on February 9, 2011

Carissa stops by to talk with Belltone about their latest innovation for the hearing impaired.  If you know someone with a hearing problem then this is a must-see.  No more fighting over audio levels while watching TV or movies – the person with normal hearing can listen at whatever volume setting they want – while the hearing impaired can do the same.  Not only does it work for home entertainment, but it can also be used with a cell phone.  Check out this really cool technology in the video below.
