Hearing Aids with iPhone

At a time when human connection has never been more important, making communication as easy as possible for people with hearing loss is key. In 2013, ReSound introduced the first Made for iPhone hearing aids that offered streaming directly from iPhone and iPad.

iPhone compatible Hearing Aids

Great news: iPhone and iPad users can now use ReSound ONE™ hearing aids as a hands-free headset to talk to family and friends.

ReSound ONE hearing aid users can take hands-free phone and FaceTime calls from iPhone and iPad* and answer calls with just a tap on the button of their hearing aids. They can enjoy conversations with outstanding sound quality – all without ever having to take their device out of their pocket.

*ReSound ONE hands-free calls are compatible with iPhone 11 or newer, iPad Pro 12.9-inch (5th generation), iPad Pro 11-inch (3rd generation), iPad Air (4th generation), and iPad mini (6th generation) with iOS 15.3.1 or newer.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can you talk on the phone with hearing aids?

Yes. Your hearing aids need to be Bluetooth® wireless technology enabled to connect with any other Bluetooth device – in this case your iPhone. You can then quickly and easily pair your devices in the iPhone Settings app. 

With ReSound ONE hearing aids you can stream audio directly to and from an iPhone or iPad and hear your favourite voices and great sound in both ears. Simply answer calls by tapping a button on your hearing aids.

How do you pair your hearing aids with your iOS device?

To connect your hearing aids to your iPhone or iPad, please follow these steps:

  1. Turn your hearing aids off.
  2. Turn on Bluetooth® by going to the Settings menu on your iOS device. The slider turns green when you activate Bluetooth.
