Hearing Aid Compatibility

According to the FCC, there are two measures used to determine hearing aid compatibility.  First, all digital handsets have a rating for their ability to reduce interference with hearing aids operating in acoustic mode – from M1 to M4, with M4 being the best.  Handsets are also rated – from T1 to T4 – for their ability to operate with hearing aids that contain a telecoil (a tightly wrapped piece of wire that converts sounds into electromagnetic signals) and operate in inductive coupling mode.  The FCC considers mobile handsets to be hearing aid compatible if they are rated at least M3 for acoustic coupling and at least T3 for inductive coupling.

Feature phones are easy-to-use and provide the ability to make and receive phone calls and text messages, as well as some web browsing, usually with a smaller screen and physical buttons for dialing.

Smart Phones run on an advanced mobile operating system, such as Android, and give the user a modern online experience with web browsing, email and downloadable apps, in addition to the ability to make and receive calls and text messages. Smart Phones generally have large touch screens.

All handsets offered by Easy Wireless are hearing aid compatible. Please refer to the following list of currently-available and recently-available handsets for more details.
