Explanation: Using a Digital Mobile Phone with a Neckloop
So what can be done? One option is to use a mobile phone that can be used with a neckloop. The only phone for which a neckloop is available (at the time of writing) is the Nokia 5110 / 6110. The Nokia LPS-1 Neckloop is a plastic covered loop of wire which is placed round the neck (it can be worn under clothing), and then plugged into the mobile phone. The mobile phone can be carried in the pocket - far enough away from the hearing aid so that there is no interference, and the hearing aid is switched to the ‘T’ position to use the phone.
***The neckloop has a built in microphone***.
The neckloop is powered by three hearing aid batteries, when these are starting to run out the neckloop may cease to work, or not work correctly. If you seem to be having problems with a Nokia neckloop, try replacing the batteries before calling for help.
