CHICAGO -- January 9, 2013 — Beltone, a leader in patient-focused hearing technology for
over 70 years, has announced SmartRemote™—the first-ever app that allows
hearing aid wearers to use their iPhone® as a “remote control” to discreetly
adjust their hearing instruments. SmartRemote can be downloaded from the App
Store℠ at no cost.

Beltone developed the SmartRemote app in response to what hearing aid wearers
wanted most: a great listening experience in multiple environments,
ease-of-use, and complete discretion.

Beltone’s award-winning 2.4 GHz wireless streaming technology underpins the
new SmartRemote app. By pairing their hearing aids with the new Direct Phone
Link 2 and the SmartRemote app on their iPhone, the hearing instrument wearer
can use their iPhone to privately adjust hearing aid volume in one or both
ears, change listening programs to match their environment, mute background
noise during a phone conversation, and more.

“Beltone’s hearing aid innovations, such as our wirelessly-streaming Direct
Phone Link 2, allow hearing-aided people to enjoy their electronic devices in
new ways,” says Beltone President, Todd Murray. “And now, our new SmartRemote
app gives our customers a superior listening experience combined with the
convenience they desire.”
