You can use your AirPods.

Get a Bluetooth audio adapter that plugs into the headphone jack on your controller. Might be a little awkward with it hanging out of your controller, but it would definitely work.

Thank you so much for the reply. I was also thinking it wouldn’t work. But I never thought about using an extender that’s a great idea! Everything I have googled has pointed to this adapter. I liked the idea of one plugging in the bottom of the switch like yours though.

I use an AirFly from Twelve South (Link). It isn’t particularly streamlined, but I have it to use my wireless headphones with inflight entertainment, so I have it already. It is no big deal to have it hanging behind my switch, but I only use it when I travel, so your mileage may vary.

Late reply but I just got some hearing aids and might have a monitoring (but probably not transmitting) solution for you – although it is expensive (couple hundred $US). If your Oticons are compatible with the ConnectClip, then you can use that to connect to your Anytone. The ConnectClip will also allow the Oticons to connect to any other regular bluetooth devices.

I don’t know if the ConnectClip will act as a microphone for this, or if you will still need to use the mic on the radio (or on a speakermic).

I use a slightly different solution because my radios don’t have bluetooth. Gear I use:

  1. Oticon hearing aids ($$$)
  2. Oticon ConnectClip (~$300 new, or ~$150 used on ebay)
  3. Twelve South AirFly Classic ($45 new)
  4. Mono-to-stereo adapter ($7 new)

The hearing aids are connected via BLE to the ConnectClip as usual. The ConnectClip can connect via regular BT to the AirFly. The AirFly plugs into the speaker jack on your radio or speakermic. The AirFly is stereo, and most speaker jacks are mono, so I use the adapter in between so the audio will play in both ears. (You could also use a splitter to stream two separate radios, one in each ear!)
