Lance He, Planning Manager of Realtek , gave a speech on 'Bluetooth Technology Brings New Opportunities in the Assistive/Hearing Aid Industry'.
Wireless fitting and remote fitting are all new advancements brought by Bluetooth technology to hearing aids. In the past, HA needed a streamer as an intermediary. With the advancement of Bluetooth technology, end-to-end direct interconnection will be realized in the future, including mobile phones, TVs, and computers. Bluetooth is divided into two types: traditional Bluetooth and LE Audio Bluetooth. Mr. He said that the Bluetooth technology organization will take LE Audio as the development trend of Bluetooth in the next 20 years. LE Audio will unify the hearing aid standards of Apple and Android platforms, and LE Audio supports binaural hearing aid function, LE Audio broadcasting function will also replace the traditional T coil, and will also support seamless connection of voice control, the next generation of hearing aid technology, New interactive mode and other features.
The hearing aid / hearing aid headphone industry deserves attention in three aspects: low power consumption, support for binaural hearing aid function, and audio sharing.
