Washington, DC — The Better Hearing Institute (BHI) has released a comprehensive list of hearing aid compatible cell phones.

Hearing Review frequent contributor, Sergei Kochkin, PhD, introduces the list of phones, saying, “As a service to hearing aid owners, we are providing, to our knowledge, a complete list of US phones that are most compatible with hearing aids. By compatibility, we mean they carry the very highest rating of M4/T4:

  • M4 indicates there is the least likelihood of microphone interference and

  • T4 means there is the greatest likelihood of telecoil coupling compatibility with the cell phone.”

Hearing Review is reprinting the list below. To find out more about a specific model, go to Better Hearing’s original list, where there are links to more detailed information about each phone.
