Hearing Loop Heavy Duty Handset Black Label Hand Model

Hearing Loop Version

We offer a Hearing Loop version of the Heavy Duty Handset which provides the same high quality audio as the standard HDH but with included T-Coil technology, making it compatible with hearing aids. This version comes with a branding label as standard, depicting the universal T-Coil symbol. 

Select this option during checkout and somebody will be in touch to discuss your label requirements after purchase.  


No Need For Replacement Parts

Constructed from high-grade, impact-resistant plastics, there’s no need for replacement parts such as new gauzes or ear pads. Our new moulded PVC cable sleeves also provides great protection while being rust-proof and maintaining flexibility. 

Simple Operation

The Desktop Heavy Duty Handset is mounted onto a flat surface with the armoured cable threaded through. The cable is then anchored with a custom bracket underneath whilst a weight automatically retracts the cable when not in use.

The 3.5mm audio jack is then connected to your chosen playback device.

Armoured Cable – 3.5mm Jack

Under the moulded PVC, an 8mm thick, 1.35m long, stainless steel armoured conduit protects the internal audio cable. A 3.5mm audio jack allows for simple connection to your audio source. A robust strain relief connecting the cable to the handset offers further protection against cable fracture giving your handset the maximum durability.

Custom Branding Labels

If using a standard HDH you may want to add a logo, instructions or just some colour to your Heavy Duty Handset. You can thanks to the optional Customised Branding Labels. Choose this option at checkout, simply send us your artwork or logo and we’ll supply your handset(s) with a label attached plus spares.
