Connect to the world with Philips HearLink

Philips HearLink hearing aids have technology that makes it possible for you to connect your hearing aids to different smart devices. This gives a better hearing experience and can ease your everyday tasks and social interactions. The technology provides intelligent interaction with smartphones and helps you stay connected with friends and family from a distance. Direct sound streaming also makes activities like watching TV and listening to music easier and more enjoyable.

Connect your hearing aids with your iOS device

  • Philips HearLink is a Made for iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch® hearing aid.
  • Connect the calls from your iPhone directly to your hearing aid.
  • Stream music, film and radio sound from your iPad, iPhone and iPod touch directly to your hearing aid.

Connect to your Android phone or tablet

Direct sound streaming from ASHA compatible Android smartphones and tablets is available for HearLink 9030, 7030, 5030, 3030, 2030 only.

  • Connect the calls from your Android smartphone directly to your hearing aid.
  • Stream music, film and radio sound from your Android device directly to your hearing aid.

If you have another behind-the-ear hearing aid than the ones mentioned above, or a phone that is not ASHA compatible, you can stream from your Android phone using the Philips AudioClip (purchased separately).

Hands-free communication

With the new hands-free communication feature, you can stream sounds directly from your iPhone and iPad to your Philips HearLink hearing aid and talk to your loved ones directly too. Great for when you are in the car or your hands are busy with other things. You no longer need to talk into your iPhone to be heard. Once you've answered the call with your phone, just start speaking and your hearing aid’s microphone will pick up your voice.

Easier with the HearLink app

With the Philips HearLink app you can easily and discreetly control your Philips HearLink hearing aids. Your smartphone becomes your remote control for changing listening programs, adjusting the volume, muting your hearing aids and activating streaming options. Here are some other helpful app functionalities.
