Hearing Aid Compatible Phones

01/26/2016

Hearing Aid Compatible Phones

When some mobile phones are used near some hearing devices (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 noise, and phones also vary in the amount of interference they generate.
Hearing Aid Compatibility with Mobile Phones

Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC) Ratings system

The wireless telephone industry has developed ratings for some of their mobile phones, to assist hearing device users in finding phones that may be compatible with their hearing devices. Not all phones have been rated. Phones that are rated will display the following text and/or icons on the product packaging:
Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC) Ratings system
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on the user's hearing device and hearing loss. If your hearing device happens to be vulnerable to interference, you may not be able to use a rated phone successfully. Trying out the phone with your hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal needs.

M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements.

They are likely to generate less interference to hearing devices than unrated phones.

M4 is the better/higher of the two ratings(M3 & M4).

T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements.

They are likely to be more usable with hearing device's telecoil than unrated phones.

T4 is the better/higher of the two ratings(T3 & T4) *Note that not all hearing devices have telecoil in them.

In addition to rating wireless phones, the ANSI standard also provides a methodology for rating hearing aids from M1 to M4, with M1 being the least immune to RF interference and M4 the most immune. To determine whether a particular digital wireless telephone is likely to interfere with a particular hearing aid, the immunity rating of the hearing aid is added to the rating of the telephone. A sum of four indicates that the telephone is probably usable; a sum of five indicates that the telephone would probably provide normal use; and a sum of six or greater indicates that the telephone would probably provide excellent performance with that hearing aid. Note that not all hearing aids are rated.

These phones have been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for some of the wireless technologies that they use. However, there may be some newer wireless technologies used in these phones that have not been tested yet for use with hearing aids. It is important to try the different features of this phone thoroughly and in different locations, using your hearing aid or cochlear implant, to determine if you hear any interfering noise. Consult your service provider or the manufacturer of these phones for information on hearing aid compatibility. If you have questions about return or exchange policies, consult your service provider or phone retailer.
