Sounds good.  Shame there aren’t others that are willing to do the same.

Looks like us Nokia users are going to be left out in the cold on this one.

Thought this might be of interest for those with hearing problems...

Danish company collaborates with Apple on hearing aid tech

One reason why I love Apple is that the Cupertino company doesn't innovate just 
for the sake of innovation. It pushes the envelope on technology to make life 
better. An excellent example is this upcoming iPhone-compatible hearing aid 
from Denmarks's GN Store Nord.

As reported by Reuters, this new hearing aid is a collaborative effort between 
Apple and GN, the world's fourth-largest hearing aid maker. Apple reportedly 
contacted hearing aid manufacturers last year, looking for one willing to use a 
2.4GHz frequency to connect a hearing aid directly to an iPhone. GN was already 
working on this 2.4GHz technology, and the two companies paired up to bring a 
product to the market.

The ReSound LiNX hearing aid will allow users to send music and other sound 
from their iPhone or iPod touch to their hearing aid. It's a direct connection, 
so the user does not have to wear a separate transmitter as an intermediary. 
Called the "first attempt to turn a hearing aid into more of a lifestyle 
product" by Morgan Stanley, the LiNX is expected to debut in early 2014.
