Our hearing impaired headphones have dual volume controls, one for each ear that are easily adjusted with 1 finger. The headphones are also compatible with telecoil equipped hearing aids. The headphone earpiece is typically placed over the hearing aid, just as a telephone earpiece would be. The headphones also have a 3.5 mm jack that can be connected to the Direct Audio Input of a hearing aid or implant.
