A new generation of rechargeable battery technologies promises to make life easier for hearing aid consumers in 2017. When two new rechargeable hearing aid models and an innovative new retrofit rechargeable battery system hit the market in late 2016, consumers finally got a choice of options as easy and convenient to charge as your cell phone.

MFI hearing aids are designed to work very closely with Apple’s operating system. They will connect directly to Apple iPhones and iPads without the need for any intermediary device. In other words, audio from the phone or the tablet can be directly streamed to the hearing aids, which means phone calls, music, audiobooks and podcasts in stereo and to both ears.
MFI hearing aids are appropriate for all types of hearing loss from mild to severe, and are most suited to individuals who are frequent users of Bluetooth-enabled devices including smartphones, tablets, music players and TVs.
