The FCC Hearing Aid Policy requires that certain phones be tested and evaluated according to the American National Standard Institute Hearing Aid Standards.
The ANSI standard for hearing aid compatibility includes two assessments:
M: To reduce radio frequency interferences to connect audio to non-remote co to hearing aids.
T: To connect to hearing aids operating remotely.
These ratings are given on a scale of one to four, with four being the most compatible. Suppose the telephone is a hearing aid compliant according to FCC requirements.
For an iPhone hearing aid compatibility assessment, see the Apple Support article “About iPhone Hearing Aid Compatibility Requirements.”
Hearing aid compatibility assessments do not guarantee that a particular hearing aid will work well in a specific phone.
Some hearing aids may work well on phones that do not meet the FCC requirements for hearing aid compatibility. Use them together before you buy to ensure that certain hearing aids work well on a specific phone.
It is essential to use hearing aids or cochlear implants to experiment with the different features in different locations thoroughly.
To determine if you can hear interference noise or not. Contact your service provider or manufacturer of this phone for hearing aid compatibility.
