What is meant by Bluetooth wireless hearing aids?

The Bluetooth hearing aids use the newest 2.4 GHz Bluetooth wireless protocol. Older models of hearing aids, although called ‘wireless’, use a 10.6 MHz digitally coded inductive link. There is no compatibility between the different devices.

Note: It is NOT possible to upgrade older hearing aids to support 2.4 GHz Bluetooth technology.

Currently, the HANSATON hearing aids that support the newest 2.4 GHz Bluetooth wireless protocol are: 

  • Sound SHD stream
  • Sound XC powered by EXCITE
  • AQ sound XC powered by EXCITE

In this section these hearing aids will be referenced as Bluetooth hearing aids or simply hearing aids.
