Telephones Compatible With Hearing Aids

Many telephones in the amplified phones market claim to be hearing aid compatible but what does this really mean? In order to answer this, we need to understand what amplified telephones are designed to do and how they can be of service to those who struggle to hear people on the phone. Telephones compatible with hearing aids and amplified phones, be it a corded amplified phone or a cordless version, mobile or smartphone, has two main properties that differentiate it from the standard equivalents. 1. It is able to provide significantly more volume from its ringer and the incoming caller’s voice without compromising on clarity. 2. It can often be described as hearing aid compatible. These two features are, in fact, distinct from each other. Furthermore, if you are visually impaired, big button phones offer a simplified telecomms option.

How Hearing Aid Compatibility Works

Hearing aid compatible phones are not just ‘hearing aid friendly’ in the sense that they are easier to use with hearing aids than ordinary phones, although this is often the presumption as to the meaning of their ‘compatibility’. It actually refers to something quite different and much more beneficial. The term is referring to the communication capabilities between the phone and the hearing aid. Hearing aid compatible phones have an induction loop in the handset that connects to a hearing aid when it is in its ‘T’ or telecoil setting. Once connected, the output from the phone is transmitted directly to the hearing aid and then amplified by the settings within the device. Therefore, the phone is not providing the volume/amplification but rather the hearing aid is at whatever level has been programmed for the individual and their hearing loss. In addition, these phones also have the ability to provide a much greater than normal volume level straight from the handset. As such, many people choose to use these phones without their hearing aids. The fact that these types of phones offer both of these two separate benefits with the same goal in mind (that of helping people hear better on the phone) makes them particularly good value for money and also distinguishes them from some ‘big button’ phones that purport to help with this issue.
