You can use Noopl to hear in noisy places with any Made for iPhone (MFi) hearing aid.
When using MFi compatible hearing aids, controlling the focus of Noopl microphones is done in Manual mode (using your finger in our app to point in the direction you would like to hear) as the dynamic head tracking used for Automatic mode (where Noopl understands where you are looking) isn't provided by hearing aids yet.
If your iPhone is already paired to your MFi compatible hearing aids, then Noopl should work right out of the box. One key configuration item that you might need to adjust based on how you have your hearing aids set up for streaming is the mix between the hearing aid microphone and Noopl. Ideally, the gain from the hearing aid mic would be set to zero or off when you are using Noopl. Typically that can be changed by the mobile app from the hearing aid manufacturer. In some cases, a change from the hearing health care professional might be required (i.e. if your audiologist didn’t enable the feature for you in the office). In general, Noopl is a great solution for those noisy environments.
How do I know if my hearing aids are MFi compatible?
Here are two ways to confirm if you have an MFI compatible hearing aid:
1. From your iPhone, tap Settings > Accessibility > Hearing Devices. Look to see if your hearing aid is listed in the "MFI HEARING DEVICES" section:
2. Since there is a chance a hearing aid is MFi compatible but was not enabled when set up, you can always check with your hearing health care professional.
