  1. Phonak Hearing aids pair, but do not show up as audio devices in Windows 10


    This has been asked before without a solution that actually works for me. My Phonak hearing aids are shown as paired by the bluetooth setting. But they do not show up as an audio device anywhere in Windows 10. Only my Realtek speakers show. So I can't hear my computer output.


    Although the hearing aids appear among "Control panel, hardware and sound, devices and printers" in the control panel, and in "Setting, Devices, Bluetooth and other devices, other devices." they don't show as audio devices anywhere else.


    When, for example, I try to go to manage them in "Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Sound, Manage Audio Devices," only my Realtek speakers appear as output devices, and there is no way to add a device. In "Settings, Sound, Output" only the Realtek speakers appear and there is no way to add another device even though, as I noted, Windows 10 recognizes the hearing aids elsewhere.


    Also, I've updated all drivers.


    I've looked at solutions other people having trouble with connection bluetooth devices, but many of them simply don't work require some settings option that no longer exists, such as a "services" tab that has actual content, mine does not.


    Thanks.

    :)

    Phonak Marvel 70 hearing aids

    Hello I usr a phonak marvel 70 hearing aid in my left ear my right ear does not work. I can get the hearing aid to pair to my windows 10 PC and it says connected voice, music.



    But the audio is always cutting in an out or playing back squeaky and distorted or you hear absolutely nothing at all. I am wanting to use this to hear people talk in games and to talk back to them but asbit is I cannot.

    My pc has bluetooth 5 built-in to the motherboard. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hearing aids pairing

    I don't know about every type of hearing aid in the world, obviously, but I have yet to come across a hearing aid that has software for a computer. There are apps for mobile devices, but not for computers.

    I will be happy to be proven wrong, since several other posters have been asking about this, notably Phonak users.

    Hearing Aids

    I have a Surface Pro 3 running Windows 10 and Miracle Ear hearing aids. The hearing aids are paired and show connected but they don't show under Audio they show under Other Devices. When I go to settings, sound and manage sound the hearing aids don't show
    as an output device. Only my built in speakers show. Is there a way to disable the speakers and use my Bluetooth hearing aids. Thanks!
