Hi, I have not been here on a while but just a little background. I am a phonak certena user. I use a phonak zoomlink FM and my hearing aids have a manual M/T switch.
Here is my question. Please explain bluetooth and hearing aids to me. How does this work. For example. I see plenty of neckloops that are bluetooth but operate on t-coil and then there is the phonak icom that doesn’t operate on t-coil. How is this possible? How does it work?
I know that an FM system uses an FM program on my hearing aid. I know that neckloops and loop systems use my t-coil program on my hearing aid. If I used an icom, what program does that use. Is there actually blue tooth technology in the hearing aids or is there special bluetooth compatible receivers in there?
I understand that the icom allows you to hear in stereo in both hears but would a bluetooth neckloop that works on t coil do the same thing? Or are all t-coil loops pretty much not true stereo despite that you pick up the signal in both ears. I know my FM system is like that.
