To clarify my terminology: “hands free call” [HFC] = able to receive and chat with someone on a phone call through my HA, while the Android is away from me. Truly using the HA mics and speakers for the phone call.
My wife’s Phonaks do that. My current Costco Phonak KS10 also do that but suffer from the ‘cracked speaker’ noise problem and I am returning them.
NOTE: not going to switch to an iPhone.
Three questions to the forum:
- Which existing HAs have true HFC through Android and you would personally recommend based on their qualities ?
- Since Phonak can do this, obviously the technology is in place already; why don’t the other HAs available at Costco do the same?
- Are any of these planning (rumored ?) to add Android HFC in the near future?
