HAC List  

Hearing Aid Compatibility

A number of digital wireless phones may result in a buzzing noise when used near hearing aids. The Hearing Aid Compability (HAC) Rating system was developed by the wireless industry to apply ratings to phones that may be compatible with hearing devices. There are two types of ratings: M-Ratings and T-Ratings. M-Ratings are likely to generate less interference to hearing devices than unrated phones. Within the M-Ratings, there are M4 and M3, M4 being better than M3. As for T-Ratings, they are likely to be more usable with hearing device's telecoil than unrated phones. Within the T-Ratings, there are T4 and T3, T4 being better than T3.

The following is a list of handsets offered by PlatinumTel during the past 24 months, detailing hearing aid compability and the rating where applicable:
