External Mic for iPhone

Posted by indydonna @indydonna, Oct 14, 2020

I am new here and finding the info very helpful. I need to take notes for meetings at work and am struggling since I read lips to help me with the things my hearing aids don't pick up.Tthe speakers are often 10 feet away and it's not possible to have them wear microphones. I would like to put an external mic on my iPhone 5S but I have not found a product that works. Anyone else have experience with this? Thank you for your help!

Intriguing! The technology out there is pretty amazing. Unfortunately, the pandemic is making it very hard for people to learn about and try new products like this. The national HLAA convention was cancelled last summer. Not sure about the one scheduled for this coming June; but doubt it will be held. Those conventions, with their excellent exhibit halls, are the absolute best place to learn, hands on, about all the innovative new products that are available. It would be nice if hearing healthcare professionals would find a way to incorporate education in this area into their practices.

I completely agree. I wish more audiologists knew about this stuff. To anyone interested in tech, I recommend Hearing Tracker's new audiology & hearing tech news aggregator. Added to the site around 2 months ago, I believe. And while it is by no means a substitute for real life, in-person conventions and exhibit halls… it does a surprisingly good (and comprehensive) job monitoring for the latest hearing tech breakthroughs. (Highly recommended, it's where I get my updates from.)
