Hearing Aid Compatible Devices

Handset Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC)

The wireless telephone industry has developed ratings to assist hearing device users in finding wireless devices that may be compatible with your hearing devices. Not all wireless devices have been rated. Wireless devices that are rated will have the rating displayed on their box together with other relevant approval markings.

These ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on your hearing device and hearing loss. If your hearing device is vulnerable to interference you may not be able to use a rated wireless device successfully.

The following are wireless devices NewPhone Wireless offers under its branded wireless product. Our sales staff is trained to assist all customers looking for a HAC-compliant handset. (Please note that this list is subject to change and selection is dependent upon availability).

M-Ratings: Wireless devices rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to generate less interference to hearing devices than wireless devices that are not labeled. M4 is the better/higher of the two ratings.

T-Ratings: Wireless devices rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to be more usable with a hearing device's telecoil ("T Switch" or "Telephone Switch") than unrated wireless devices. T4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. (Note that not all hearing devices have telecoils in them).

When wireless devices are used near hearing devices (such as hearing aids and cochlear implants), users may detect a buzzing, humming, or whining noise. Some hearing devices are more immune than others to this interference, and wireless devices also vary in the amount of interference they generate.

Hearing devices may also be measured for immunity to this type of interference. The more immune your hearing aid is, the less likely you are to experience interference noise from wireless devices. Your hearing device manufacturer or hearing health professional may help you find results for your hearing device.
