How to pair your hearing aids with an Android™ device

Pairing Android smartphones and tablets including Samsung, Google Pixel, OnePlus, and Huawei enables you to stream audio such as phone calls, music and podcasts, using your hearing aids as wireless headphones.

Before you start


Bernafon hearing aids can pair directly to Android phones and tablets including Huawei, OnePlus, Google Pixel, and Samsung. Pairing directly allows you to use the Bernafon App to adjust the sound.

Bernafon hearing aids can also enable you to have hands-free calls and stream music and audio to your hearing aids from Android devices. To do this directly, your Android device must support Audio Streaming for Hearing Aids (ASHA). Other Android devices require a SoundClip-A to enable audio streaming with your hearing aids.
