As much as a hearing aid can fill in missing parts of people's lives, it can also take away certain things, which the Siemens Aquaris hopes to compensate for. Until now, hearing aids have not been waterproof. Thus, the hearing impaired had to either sacrifice that sense when near water or simply avoided places like the beach and pool. The Siemens Aquaris hearing aid is a water-friendly alternative that allows wearer's to have their cake and eat it too.
More than that, the Siemens Aquaris hearing aid is tolerant to sand and dust, two other natural factors that can cause malfunctions in standard devices. With Watertight seals and membranes, the Siemens Aquaris hearing aid can be submerged in three feet of water for 30 minutes without damage. It can also stream audio directly from a source with VoiceLink.
