Bluetooth has emerged as one of the most popular forms of wireless technology for hearing aids.  While technologies like Telecoil, and Near Field Magnetic Induction are still heavily used.  Bluetooth increases the functionality of hearing aids that use this form of wireless technology.Here are my top 4 picks for best Bluetooth Hearing Aids:

#4.  Phonak Audeo B-Direct - The Audeo B-Direct is the only Bluetooth hearing aid that can stream phone calls directly from an Android device as well as iPhone.  However, it can only stream to one ear at a time.  Check out my review of the Audeo B-Direct here: https://youtu.be/l4CY8RgmcuY

#3. Starkey Halo IQ - The Halo IQ is the third generation the original Halo that was released in 2014.  Starkey is one of the pioneers of Made for iPhone hearing aids.

#2. Oticon OPN - Oticon changed the way that their hearing aids work in a noisy situation.  It is one of the main reasons their devices have dominated since their release in 2016.  The OPN can Bluetooth connect directly with an iPhone, but can now connect with any phone with their new ConnectClip.  Check out my OPN review here: https://youtu.be/-JP9pp-suKI and my ConnectClip review here:  https://youtu.be/8AeTG1TkklY

#1. Resound LiNX 3D - The LinX 3D is the third generation of the LiNX line that was also started in 2014.  Not only can you get direct  Bluetooth connection with an iPhone, but you can use a Phone Clip to gain access to an Android phone as well.  You can also use all of the other great accessories that ReSound has and get a custom In-the-ear hearing aid that uses Bluetooth.  No other manufacturer has this feature.  Feel free to check out my Resound LiNX 3D review here:  https://youtu.be/Lxqgfyal_Wo
