IntriCon Adds Power-Efficient Wireless Audio Streaming to Its Hearing Devices

IntriCon has taken another major step forward in its hearing aid and hearables offerings—this time adding audio streaming functionality. IntriCon’s and NXP’s R&D teams merged hearing aid engineering and wireless audio streaming semiconductor technology to deliver hearing aid devices that can stream wireless audio from IntriCon’s wireless accessories. It intends to launch this technology—coupled with a remote microphone—into its Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) and Direct-to-Insurance (DTI) channels in the first half of 2018.
