I have just purchased a Williams Sound PockeTalker and neckloop. I was wondering if your dual Music Links can be used with the PockeTalker instead of the neckloop? They would appear to be somewhat lighter and easier to use.
For sure! They work just fine. Since the PockeTalker has a mono jack and the Music Links has a stereo plug, get a stereo to mono adapter from Radio Shack (Part #274-882, $3.99, or Part #274-368, $2.99), then just plug the adapter into the PockeTalker, and the Music Links into the adapter, and you’re all set. (If you don’t use an adapter, you’ll only hear sound in one ear. The other channel will be shorted to ground.)
The Music Links are definitely lighter than a neckloop. However, I don’t think there is really any difference in their ease of use. You wear the neckloop around your neck. You wear the Music Links hooked over your ears. You can check out the Music Links here.
