Back in 2014, Apple introduced the Live Listen feature, designed to pair iPhones with hearing aids, and then enabling the iPhone as a remote microphone and then transfer audio to hearing aids.
How does it work?
For example, with the feature, users can place the iPhone on a table in a noisy environment such as a restaurant. Then, the iPhone can transmit the voice of the opposite person to the user’s ears with AirPods, which it becomes a Hearing aide.
Although AirPods with Live Listen cannot replace traditional hearing aids, it should be a big help, especially in an emergency circumstance.
