Hello everyone, I’m new to the forum having been recently fitted with two NHS Nathos hearing aids, type SP, W.
I am very pleased with the new AIDS (they replaced once that I bought privately many years ago), especially that they are wireless.
I have spoken to the hospital and they are happy to reprogram the aids so that the Streamer will be able to control the programs and volume of my hearing aids.
I have looked through the literature and believe that I should purchase a Phonak ComPilot together with a Phonak TVLink S Basestation. This, will I believe have a basic streaming capability to listen to the television.
Question: Are these the right devices for the NHS Nathos SP, W aids?
I also need to use my aids with telephone calls and I understand that if I was to purchase a Bluetooth enabled landline telephone, I could pair this to the streamer. The Phonak site lists compatible Bluetooth mobile phones but not Bluetooth Landline phones.
The Panasonic KX-TG8621E seems to have all the right features but “Head Set” or “Hands Free” profile (HSP/HFP) do not feature in their write-up. DECT does not, I think., cover HSP/HFP
Question: Does anyone have experience of UK landline Bluetooth phones please?
Once I have some answers, I will purchase the devices and no doubt be back in touch if things do not “connect” as expected.
Finally, instead of a new Bluetooth landline, would it be simpler to use my old landline phone (it’s usually next to me) and plug in the 3.5mm jack on the ComPilot when the phone rings?
