T-Mic™ 2

T-Mic 2 features an incredibly discreet design that comes in three sizes for all ears and ages. With elegant design, comfort, and durability, 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. Compared to behind-the-ear, 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.1

R. Gifford showed that AB recipients participating in the study 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, instead of behind-the-ear, for better hearing in noise1 or enjoying wireless connectivity with cell phones, Bluetooth devices, MP3 players, and other popular consumer electronics.

“The T-Mic earhook is excellent! I hear very well with it and using the phone is just plain fun. I like being able to hold the phone just like normal-hearing people – on my ear.”
