I have been wearing hearing aids for a few years and have struggled with cell phones, like it seems as do other hearing aid users. So, I am pretty excited to see the info on the t-coil loops, especially the bluetooth versions such as Artone.
I had recently removed my t-coil settings as I was not using them at all, so I will have to get them switched back. My question is that I thought that when on t-coil that the hearing aid microphone is disabled. Would this be correct? I have Phonak Savia bte.
If the hearing aid mic is turned off, then I am thinking that I would perhaps be on a phone call and not hear someone standing next to me or coming up behind me to talk.
I am wondering how other users find those kinds of situations.
Additionally, how well does the Artone system remove background noise when talking into its mic, say in noisy areas such as a car or cafetaria?
Thanks so much for the forum, as I think the info will greatly improve my ability to converse on a cell phone!
