Hearing Aid Compatible Devices

Handset Hearing Aid Compatible (HAC) Phones

The wireless telephone industry has developed handset hearing aid 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 Hearing Aid Compatible phones Assist 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).

HAC ratings

M-Rating: M-rating determines the Radio Frequency emissions level and signal quality of a phone.

  • Phones with a higher M-rating have a lower RF emissions level and a higher signal quality.
  • A hearing aid must be in microphone mode in order to replicate the mode that was used to achieve the phone’s rating.
  • The phone’s M-rating should be considered along with the user’s hearing aid’s M-rating.
  • It is recommended that the rating of the hearing aid and phone add up to at least 5.

T-Rating: A Telecoil is a small device built into some hearing aids that allow for a better experience when using a telephone or other listening device.

  • The Telecoil gathers magnetic fields generated by telephones and converts these fields into sound.
  • Not all hearing aids or listening devices have a Telecoil. A switch or button on the hearing aid must be selected to choose the Telecoil setting.
  • Telecoil is particularly useful for telephone communication because it permits the volume control of a hearing aid to be turned up without creating feedback or whistling. Additionally, background noise can be reduced, especially when using devices in noisy places.
