Important note about HAC phones

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


More about Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC) ratings

M Rating
Phones are given an M-rating based on their radio frequency (RF) emissions level and signal quality. Phones with a higher M-rating have a lower RF emissions level and a higher signal quality.

  • M-ratings range from M1 to M4, with M4 being the best.
  • Customers who plan to listen to phone calls with their hearing aids in microphone mode (M mode) should look for a phone with an M-rating of M3 or M4.
  • Your phone and your hearing aid will each have their own M-rating.
  • For the best experience, it is recommended that the phone’s M-rating and the hearing aid’s M-rating add up to at least 5.
T Rating
Phones are given a T-rating based on their ability to operate with telecoil-equipped hearing aids. A telecoil is a small device built into some hearing aids that allows for a better experience when using a telephone or listening device.
  • T-ratings range from T1 to T4, with T4 being the best.
  • Customers who plan to listen to phone calls with their hearing aids in telecoil mode (T mode) should look for a phone with a T-rating of T3 or T4.
  • If your hearing aid is equipped with a telecoil, it will have its own T-rating.
  • For the best experience, it is recommended that the phone’s T-rating and the hearing aid’s T-rating add up to at least 5.
  • To use telecoil mode (T mode) on your telecoil-equipped hearing aid, switch the hearing aid to the T position. Or, press a button on the hearing aid to select the telecoil setting.
