I’m very interested in the Music Links as I recently went bilateral with 2 cochlear implants. One of my biggest concerns is not being able to listen to music with both on (as the cord provided by Cochlear only accommodates one processor and I’ve had to make do with 1970s headphones which blasts sounds to everyone in the room, not just me).
When I turn on the T-coils on my processors and turn up the sound on the iPod, will sound be heard by others in the room? Or just me? (this is a concern as I love to blast sound but don’t want to bother the people around me by playing the same song over and over again.)
That’s the nice thing about using T-coils and the Music Links. You alone will hear the music through them. When you plug the Music Links into your iPod, only a magnetic field is “transmitted”, not any sound, so no one can hear anything unless they too have t-coils (and are very close).
You can get the Music Links here, and then listen away to your hearts content without bothering others!
