Default Hearing Aids and the Bold

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

Does anyone use hearing aids with the 9000? Though I would gain input if someone has HA's and use the Bold.

I have read Blackberry is one of the better phones for the deaf and hearing aids users.

Thank you for any input.

I have hearing aid and a CI. I use the BOLD and love the sound quality. Unfortunately not telecoil compatible.

HOWEVER - the earpiece that comes with the BOLD (the one you plug in and stick in your ears and has a microphone - handsfree unit) IS telecoil compatible. I just have it wrapped over my ears (not in my ears - if that makes sense) so its right next to my hearing aid.

Jonathan,
Thank you for your input. That might work well. If it's loud enough over your ear. I think it would work with the bluetooth to my earphones. I wear Oticon's Epox XW with a bluetooth streamer. It has not been loud enough on an iphone I bought 5 months ago. I have really missed the BB.

Thank you and take care!
