For the first time, hearing aid users can stream music, phone calls, and other sound directly from their compatible Android smartphone to their ReSound LiNX Quattro hearing aids,4 while preserving battery life.
“As people are increasingly streaming sound from smartphones, any technology must be designed for streaming all day, while preserving battery life.
