I am so eager for this type of universal access to BT connectivity.  I hope it delivers on its promises.  And I hope Med-El integrates it in future processors (both BTE and off the ear processors).

Sounds very cool. Funny, non hearing disabled folks love walking around with their headphones or earbuds, could be beneficial to the masses

I don't really know how this works but I hope along with making it easier to hear in public places like airports and train stations, it might help in movie theaters.

Excellent article regarding AuraCast BT and telecoils written by someone who actually had an opportunity to experience AuraCast at a conference!

 

Exciting times ahead for all of us!
