T-Coil Activation Protocol
Do I have a T-Coil?
Many hearing aids that fit behind or in the ear may include a T-Coil. To determine if your hearing aid has a T-Coil, consult your hearing aid provider. If your hearing aids do not have a built in T-Coil, but have Bluetooth capabilities, a Streamer can be used to interact with a room Loop. Streamers are available from all major hearing aid manufacturers. They are paired in the same way as other Bluetooth devices and can be used for more than T-Coil operations.
How Do I Get My T-Coil Activated?
Your hearing aid provider can turn on a separate program that can be used exclusively for T-Coil and Loop operation. Do not attempt to use the Loop with an Automatic T-Coil setting as this will not work. The T-Coil for a room Loop must be accessed by using the hearing aid memory button that has its own program.
