Date and Time: 26 June, 4:30pm EST / 20:30 GMT


The new Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE) Audio capabilities mean another step forward in the trend toward digital technology convergence for hearing devices as they become more integrated and even unified with consumer audio devices. The promise of Bluetooth® LE Audio includes more availability, better interoperability and greater acceptance of audio accessibility across a wide range of venues, products, and services.  This session will discuss the expanded capabilities of the new release of Bluetooth® LE Audio, how it is different from previous versions of Bluetooth® audio, and most importantly, the anticipated benefits to people with hearing loss.
