DETAILED INFO

Choosing a phone that works with hearing aids

Did you know some wireless phones interfere with hearing aids? The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) updated the Hearing Aid Compatibility Act of 1988 (HAC Act). Now, people who are deaf or hard of hearing have a wider choice of phones that work with hearing aids.

Find out more about FCC hearing aid compatibility requirements for wireless phones

Hearing and speech accessibility
Many wireless phones include features to make typing and video calling easier, like:
  • Large screens
  • Email
  • Text messaging
  • Video calling and chat
  • Visual Voicemail
  • Web browsing
  • Full QWERTY keyboards
  • Predictive text or autocomplete
  • Bluetooth® keyboard connections

If you’re deaf or hard of hearing, try these resources to help find the right wireless phone:

Looking for info on other accessible wireless devices and apps? Try the multilingual Global Accessibility Reporting Initiative (GARI).

Tip: Want to make sure there isn’t noise interference with a device? Use your hearing aid or cochlear implant to try different phone features in different locations. Ask us or the phone manufacturer for info about a phone’s hearing-aid compatibility. We can also answer your questions about return or exchange policies.

Compatible wireless phones

We use the FCC guidelines for Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC) to test and rate the devices we offer. HAC uses the M-rating and T-rating to evaluate phones.
Find the HAC rating column in the table to find your next phone. We update this list regularly so be sure to check back for the most recent info.

M-ratings for mobile phones
M-ratings indicate how well phones reduce interference to a hearing aid operating in acoustic coupling mode. Each phone is assigned an M-rating from M1 to M4. M4 is the highest. The higher the rating, the more likely the phone avoids interference.

Under FCC rules, a phone must have an M-rating of M3 or M4 to be hearing-aid compatible. These phones are less likely to interfere with hearing aids.

Some hearing aids are also measured for resistance to interference. Want to know about yours? Check with the device manufacturer or your hearing health professional.

T-ratings for mobile phones
T-ratings indicate how well phones reduce interference to a hearing aid operating in inductive coupling mode, in other words, with a telecoil. Each phone is assigned a rating from T1 to T4. T4 is the highest. The higher the rating, the better the phone avoids interference.

Under FCC rules, a phone must have a T-rating of T3 or T4 to be hearing aid compatible. These phones are more likely to work well for people who use hearing aids with telecoils.
