Pairing hearing aids to an iPhone®

If you have an iPhone®, you may have already paired it to your car, your smart speakers or other devices. The process to pair hearing aids is similar. On your phone:

  1. Go to your settings. Make sure that Bluetooth® is on. Then choose "General."
  2. In General, choose "Accessibility."
  3. Once in Accessibility, choose "Hearing Aids."
  4. Retrieve your hearing aids. Open and close the battery doors to turn off and on your hearing aids. Once this is done, the iPhone® can recognize your hearing aids (left and right, individually).
  5. On your iPhone®, click "pair" as prompted.
  6. Your iPhone® should recognize the hearing aids, with a check mark.
  7. Once this is complete, download the Oticon ON app to control your volume and change listening programs in the Oticon ON app.

Pairing hearing aids to Android

In order to connect Android phones (Samsung, Motorola, etc.) to Oticon hearing aids, users will have to connect the devices using the Oticon ON app. 

After downloading the Oticon ON app from Google Play®, install and open the app.

  1. Allow Oticon to access your device's location.
  2. Make sure that your phone has Bluetooth® turned on. 
  3. The app will automatically search for your hearing aids. If it doesn't find them, restart your hearing aids by opening and closing the battery drawers.
  4. Click "pair." 
  5. There will be a short tutorial that will walk you through the basic functions of the app.
