I have trouble hearing on the telephone. Is there something I can get to hear more easily on the phone?
There are a few different options available to help you hear better on the telephone:
1. Buy an in-line amplifier for a regular corded phone.
2. Buy a cordless phone with built-in amplifier for the hearing impaired.
3. Ensure your hearing aid has a telecoil option to use with hearing aid compatible telephones. This can work well for most people but does require you to learn to put the phone at the sweet spot on the hearing aid for phone reception. Hearing aid compatible phones should have a rating of M3, T4 or M4, T4.
4. If you are looking to purchase new hearing aids, consider getting the type that use wireless interface devices. These allow you to hear through both hearing aids without having to put the phone at a special place on your hearing aid.
This is a brilliant, new alternative and is best understood by coming in for a demonstration from your AudigyCertified provider. This wireless interface device can also be set up to work with your TV and stereo, and it is not limited to helping you with just the telephone.
