Who will benefit from the Amplicomms NL200 neckloop.
For hearing aid users trying to answer a mobile phone can be a struggle. With the microphone sitting on the top of the hearing aid casing it is very difficult to position the phone to hear the speaker clearly.
The amplicomms NL200 bluetooth neckloop is solution that will greatly benefit all hearing aid users. It is a neckloop which connects wirelessly to transmit phone calls directly into your hearing aids through the telecoil or “T” setting.
It enables the user to hear and speak on their mobile phone WIRELESSLY and HANDS FREE. This is particularly good for hearing aid users for driving or simply being on the go.
With the bluetooth function, it can connect to any bluetooth device, including GPS navigation systems and transmit the sound wirelessly directly into your hearing aids.
The key features of the Amplicomms NL200 neckloop.
The device is compatible with most makes of hearing aid that have the telecoil or “T” setting available. This is pretty much most BTE (behind the ear) hearing aids.
It is worn round the neck of the user and connects wirelessly to both your hearing aid and your mobile phone.
The device is fully compatible with all bluetooth V 2.0 and above mobiles. This is virtually every smartphone on the market today.
It has a wireless transmission range of 10M or over 30FT.
It comes with an integrated lithium-polymer battery and power cord for charging.
It has a talk time of approx 8 hours and a standby time of up to 2000 hours.
The sound quality is crystal clear when used with the “T” function of your hearing aid. When you answer a call or make a call the background sounds such as TV are automatically blocked out. Once the call is dropped then the device goes into standby mode and the background sounds are reinstated.
The device has an integrated microphone and volume control. As long as you are within 10M or 30 TF of your phone you can take a call without having to even touch your phone.
The NL200 neckloop also has a redialing function and voice command. The voice command will only work if your mobile phone supports this function.
The Pros and Cons of the Amplicomms NL200.
This device is fantastic for using your mobile phone hands free anywhere. It is extremely simple to use and maintain. The battery life is very good and the quality of sound is second to none.
I really struggled to take calls when wearing my hearing aids. More often than not I simply took the hearing aid out to answer the phone. This obviously meant that I struggled to hear the conversation.
I bought this device (It cost me £99) three months ago and the difference has been nothing short of amazing. I turn it on first thing every morning and connect it immediately to my phone. Then I slip it over my head and thats it.
Once the phone rings I press the “T” setting on my hearing aid and the call comes through crystal clear. Once the call is over I just press the “T” setting off again and thats me finished. No more fumbling around or having to take the hearing aid out.
As I said, I have had this device for three months now, and I can’t find any fault with it. Every feature works perfectly and the battery life in my device is even longer that the manufacturers claim.
My overall verdict.
I think you can guess this one. I can thoroughly recommend the Amplicomms NL200 bluetooth neckloop. If you are a hearing aid user and want to use your mobile phone wirelessly and hands free then you should get this device.
The device can be bought in various places but I always recommend Hearing Direct.com because of their pricing and even more importantly they operate a no quibble 30 day money back guarantee. This allows you to test the product at home and make sure that it is the right one for you.
