Advice for the hearing impaired

I have two hearing impaired users who were just issued VVX410s.  In looking at the specs for this model, the handset is supposed to be hearing aid compatible, however the users report they are having difficulty hearing conversations.  Both users are in a factory setting with background noise.   They are asking for a handset with  built in volume controls.  I have two questions for Polycom: 

1. Is there a way to optimize the built in hearing aid/coil?

2.  is there a Polycom compatible handset that we could order that has built in volume control?

Re: Advice for the hearing impaired

Hello jenfsnyder,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

All Polycom handsets are Hearing Aid Compatible (HAC) and have telecoils that magnetically couple to most forms of wearable hearing aids per FCC section 508 (compliant to ADA Section 508 Recommendations: Subpart B 1194.23).


More details can be found => here <=


I am not aware that we manufacture or sell any other handsets and the phone itself can adjust the volume.
