No the Streamer Pro only allows mono audio streaming to both devices.  The new Oticon Opn productline does stream in stereo directly from the iPhone.

Yes. The Streamer Pro streams Bluetooth from any Bluetooth compatible device to the Alta 2 Pro miniRITE hearing aids. The streamer must be worn around the neck. As a side, their newer OPN line can connect to and stream from iPhone directly, without the need for a streamer.

The Streamer Pro is a hearing aid accessory worn around the neck and can be used as a remote. The Streamer Pro will connect to Oticon wireless hearing aids. The accessory streams the noise from the television, music or phone to allow a person to hear things clearly.

If you want stereo output, it looks like the Opn hearing aid is your best bet. The streamer does not output stereo to any aid -- this was a big disappointment for me when I got mine. It now sits in a drawer collecting dust. The streamer pro might do stereo, but there's no evidence of this on Oticon's site and I would be skeptical of any claim that it does.
