Beltone announced that its innovative line of advanced hearing aids, including Beltone First and the Edison Award nominated Beltone Boost, are now compatible with Android via the Beltone HearPlus app.
The Beltone HearPlus app allows users to tailor their hearing experience to match their personal preferences and accommodate their listening environment in a way that’s both discreet and easy.
Initially compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S5, one of the world’s most popular Android smart phones, Beltone’s hearing aids will expand to include other Android devices later in 2015.
Beltone First and Beltone Boost hearing aids are already both Made for iPhone and compatible with Apple iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod touch).
"We are thrilled to give iPhone users and now Android users access to the same discreet and customized hearing experience," said Beltone President, Todd Murray.
"We are constantly striving to improve our technologies and give even more people the ability to improve their hearing experience and overall quality of life. Our entry into the Android market is the latest evidence of that commitment."
Beltone HearPlus for Android, available for download on Google Play in February 2015, allows users to set preferred volume levels, adjust treble and bass settings and employ the ‘Finder’ function to pinpoint hearing aids if misplaced.
