Dictating Machines

I have a dictating machine which has a 3.5mm headphone socket, how can I connect it to an induction loop so I can listen with my Hearing Aids.

No problem, if a product has a 3.5mm stereo headphone socket for conventional headphones or earphones then we can supply a solution for a hearing aid user.

If you have direct input hearing aids you may directly listen to audio equipment to obtain the best possible quality, personal stereo direct leads can be found at our online website - personal stereo direct input leads may be seen here and hearing aid direct input shoes here.

Alternatively if the hearing aid has a 'T' facility then one of our personal stereo inductive listening products could be used - as long as you do not suffer interference when on your hearing aid T setting when seated at your computer (perhaps you could try switching to T .. do you get any nasty noises of buzz of hum?).

How can I listen to a dictating machine with my hearing aids?

I work in an office and sometimes I have to do audio work which has been dictated onto a PC by digital dictating. I currently have earphones which are connected to a small black box which in turn is connected to my PC. because I wear two digital hearing aids which have a T switch I cannot use the ear phones without taking out my hearing aids. Having to do this causes me great concern as without my hearing aids I cannot hear!! Do you think one of the neck loop systems would be suitable for me to use with my hearing aids switched to the T switch? Also can you please advise me as to what you would use the hearing aid direct input shoes for? I would be most grateful for any information and advice you could give to me.

A couple of questions - are the earphones that you use equivalent to ones used with personal stereo equipment, i.e. do they have a 3.5mm stereo plug? If they do then one of our personal stereo inductive listening products would be suitable - as long as you do not suffer interference when on your hearing aid T setting when seated at your computer (perhaps you could try switching to T .. do you get any nasty noises of buzz of hum?).

Direct input is only available on some hearing aids - it is when the hearing aid has a facility to connect an audio source directly via a direct input shoe, does your hearing aid have this facility? (as we are not hearing aid experts either ask your hearing aid supplier or access to work advisor to explain about hearing aid options). If you do in fact have direct input hearing aids you may directly listen to audio equipment to obtain the best possible quality, personal stereo direct leads can be found at our online website - personal stereo direct input leads may be seen here and hearing aid direct input shoes here
