The BeHear NOW headset will continue to operate as a personal hearing amplifier, even without any connection to any smartphone (the parameters are saved in the headset, not in the phone). The smartphone is necessary if you want to run the BeHear NOW control application, but the headset itself includes seven built-in control buttons that allow you to use it autonomously. You can watch this video for specific instructions.
Have you used the W&H BeHear smartphone application to run the hearing test assessment? If so, note that the results are applied to the presets (Indoor, Outdoor, Crowd and Live Music), and are programmed into the headset itself (not the phone).
Still, we recommend downloading and pairing your new smartphone with the headset so that you can get maximum benefit. Watch this video for detailed instructions.
