Absolutely! You can benefit from the ambient hearing without a smartphone. 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 pair BeHear NOW and use it with any Bluetooth device such as a feature phone, music player, laptop, etc. and use it for hearing enhancement, phone calls or listening to music or other recorded audio.
