Main Functions

Testing the connection to the hearing aid
A demo function can be used to test the connection to the hearing aids . A recorded message will be played and wirelessly transmitted to the hearing aids.

Simply hold the handset near the hearing aid while using the telephone (max. 25 cm / 10” away).

Making a call
Wireless transmission of the phone call is only possible to Phonak hearing aids. No special configuration is needed for the hearing aid or the phone.

The DECT home phone can be used for regular phone calls also without connection to hearing aids.

Transferring existing contacts
If you already have a DECT-compatible cordless phone, it should be possible to transfer the contact data to the Phonak DECT home phone.
