This section includes a range of accessories which may enhance a mobile phone's ease of use including:
A neckloop is a plastic covered wire that you wear around your neck and connect to compatible devices with audible output such as some mobile phones. The wire produces an inductive output which your hearing aid/s will pick up when set to 'T'. Some neckloops can now connect to a mobile phone without a connecting wire via bluetooth technology. These bluetooth neckloops are more expensive but can be easier to use as you have fewer wires (check that your mobile has bluetooth technology before purchase).1,2
Ear loops / hooks works like a neck loop but are designed to hook behind your hearing aid/s.
For more information on mobile phones and accessories refer to Action for Hearing Loss's range of factsheets on mobile phones.View references and sources of further information ›
