The technology is amazing, the convenience is mind-blowing. Who would have thought that you would use your smartphone to control your hearing aids? Remember the old days of misplaced remote controls for each and every one of our devices? Today, our smartphones can adjust the volume according to our surroundings, motion control detectors automatically adjust to new settings (for example, when you are in the car or outdoors), and directional microphones zone in on what you want to hear. You can even connect your phone directly to a conference speaker so that you can still sit in the back row (and get outta there if you need to). You can also stream the sound of your TV, music, audiobooks, and take phone calls with ease.
