PhoneNow™

Role
Switches automatically to a telephone program upon detection of a handset.

End user benefit
User can conveniently use the phone without needing to consider hearing aid programs.

The PhoneNow™ program is activated by magnetic fields, generated either by the handset of a stationary phone or by a small magnet located on the handset or mobile phone. When the handset is held to the ear, the hearing instrument detects the magnetic field and switches to PhoneNow™. This program can be acoustic (where the microphone of the hearing instrument is used) or inductive (the telecoil of the instrument is used).

DETECTION DISTANCE

Around 2 cm

Activation time: less than one second
Deactivation time: 3 to 4 seconds

Comfort Phone™ Function

When one device is activated with the PhoneNow™ program, the Comfort PhoneTM feature uses Ear-to-Ear communication to automatically reduce the gain of the other device by 6 dB. This allows the wearer to concentrate more easily on the phone conversation.
