Telecoils in hearing aids. How do you use yours? What can they do?
A lot of people tell me "I don't need loops or t-coils – I can hear". My reply to them is "Yes it is POSSIBLE for you to hear – But loops make it EASY to hear". Once a person experiences the difference they are amazed.

I often carry a neckloop with me. When someone tells me they have telecoils they have never tried, I let them use my cell phone for a call. Fun to see the 'ah ha' moment when they can hear so clearly. I remember my own 'ah ha' moment clearly & dearly. It happened in 1984 at the first national convention of HLAA.
