Using the Telecoil Feature
with the Telephone

A telecoil is a special circuit inside the audio processor designed to pick up electromagnetic signals. These magnetic signals – or induction signals – are wirelessly transmitted to the audio processor by using an assistive listening device (neckloop or silouette), or by directly using the telecoil on the phone.

Assistive listening devices (ALDs) are great tools for learning to use the telephone because they minimize any background noise, helping you focus more on listening through the phone. By using a telecoil accessory (like a neckloop), you can take advantage of the wireless connectivity that can provide a much clearer sound. Look at the visuals on the right for some various setups that use the telecoil function.



A telecoil neckloop is connected directly to the phone via headphone jack. Audio is sent wirelessly via induction signals picked up by the audio processor in telecoil mode.

 



Using a telecoil-equipped phone, audio is delivered directly to the audio processor that is in telecoil mode.

 

 


A Bluetooth®–enabled phone wirelessly communicates with a Bluetooth neckloop. Audio is sent wirelessly via induction signals picked up by the audio processor in telecoil mode.
