Each set of BEYOND hearing aids must be matched to a phone for the BEYOND app to be able to control the hearing aids. As such, users will not be at risk for other BEYOND app users accidentally controlling their hearing aids.
Music, phone calls, Facetime calls, movies, audiobooks, etc. can all be streamed through the BEYOND aids directly from the iPhone.
Text/email alerts will not be streamed to the hearing aids to better focus on longer stream signals such as a phone call or music..
The iPhone streams both right and left audio channels in each ear to allow for better balance and flexibility of volume in either ear.
The BEYOND offers a Universal and a Music program by default. The Music program is specifically designed to enhance the dynamic qualities of both live and streamed music. As such, it is recommended to use the music program for streaming music. This can easily be selected through the BEYOND app by selecting “Music”.
This feature will be available in early 2017.
The Widex BEYOND offers a special feature that allows the hearing aids to be updated through the BEYOND app when updates are available. This saves you a trip to activate the hearing aids with the App updates. When the BEYOND app has an update, you will see a pop-up window that the hearing aids are being updated. This process will only take a few minutes, and the hearing aids are still active during this update process.
