Earlier this year, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) released the full suite of specifications for a ground-breaking advancement in Bluetooth® technology – LE Audio. LE Audio builds on 20 years of innovation to improve the performance of Bluetooth audio, add support for hearing aids, and introduce AuracastTM broadcast audio

By standardizing support for Bluetooth technology within hearing aids, LE Audio increases availability and enables true global interoperability. Thanks to LE Audio, people with hearing loss will be able to take advantage of the same Bluetooth audio benefits enjoyed by users of standard Bluetooth headphones and earbuds, including wireless calling, listening, and watching.
