The Hearing Aid Gets Hip [dupe]

Forgive my ignorance, but the Siemens miniTek hearing aid "audio system" is the first I've seen that combines Bluetooth, mp3 and other wireless controls with the traditional sound-boost typically associated with these devices. Did the hearing aid just get cool?

I know they've become incredibly small and inconspicuous with brands like Miracle-Ear (Patrick Duffy, what up dog?), et al, but this miniTek thing controls televisions too! Just cycle through all your connected devices and gadgets and their sounds appear in your dilapidated ear canals.

Hearing loss is awful, of course, but this seems like it'd be quite handy. [Medgadget]
