Introducing the T-Mic 2 with an all-new, incredibly discreet design that comes in three sizes for all ears and ages. With enhanced aesthetics and comfort, the T-Mic 2 also lets you use cell phones, Bluetooth devices, MP3 players, and other battery-powered audio devices just like everyone else.

 

 

Natural Placement for Better Hearing

AB is the only company to offer the patented T-Mic microphone placed at the opening of the ear canal. This strategic placement utilizes the outer ear’s natural sound-gathering capabilities, just like normal-hearing ears. The result is better, more effortless hearing for your child or you in noise.

R. Gifford showed that 11 out of 11 AB recipients understood 44% more sentences in noise with AB’s patented T-Mic than with a behind-the-ear (BTE) microphone used by AB’s competition.1


T-Comm for Neptune

A convenient accessory for the Neptune™ sound processor, the T-Comm delivers the natural microphone placement of the T-Mic™, a built-in T-coil, as well as easy connectivity to MP3 players and other popular consumer electronics devices.

Hear More of Your World

AB’s classic T-Mic for Harmony™ is available in sizes that fit both adults and children comfortably. Like the T-Mic 2 and T-Comm, it places the microphone at the opening of the ear canal for better hearing in noise or enjoying wireless connectivity with cell phones, Bluetooth devices, MP3 players, and other popular consumer electronics.
