    This is the forth bluetooth neck loop I have purchased over the past year, 3 SonicBlu neck loops from Sonic Innovation, for around $200/each, and all 3 of them stopped working within a few month. The wire that connects the bluetooth device to the neck loop is the main problem. But, so far the Linear Bluetooth neck loop from ila has perform as well or better. From what I can see it is a lot more durable, and that is important to me since I wear my hearing aids all the time. The last thing I need is for the bluetooth device to short-out when it gets a little sweat on it.

    I purchased the Linear Bluetooth Neckloop to use with a Nokia X2 cell phone. Previously, I used a Nokia LPS-2 loopset with a Nokia 6310 cell phone. The voice quality with the Linear Bluetooth/Nokia X2 combination is not as crisp as with the LPS-2/6310 combination (but is clear enough for familiar voices to be readily understood), but the convenience of the Bluetooth connectivity more than makes up for this limitation, since I don’t have to wear the phone to use the neckloop–the phone can be 20-30 feet away and the neckloop can still detect incoming calls. The Linear neckloop runs on a rechargeable battery (recharger included), a big improvement over the type 675 batteries that powered the LPS-2 (and died every 2 weeks). The Linear neckloop has several different tones to alert you that you’re out of network, or that a voice call is incoming. The tones are very soft, but distinctive; they work for me, but may not work for everyone. This neckloop also looks much better than the LPS-5 loopset Nokia is now offering, which looks too much like those “help-I’ve-fallen-and-can’t-get-up” panic buttons, or Phonak’s loopset, which looks like a big white square. By contrast, the Linear neckloop resembles a stylish piece of casual jewelry. However, please note that the Bluetooth indicator light flashes every 3 seconds when the device is active. It’s not too noticeable in brightly lit rooms, but is very distracting in lower lighting situations, and even a little unsettling when walking down dark hallways. Bluetooth coupling is automatic when you turn the device on and off, however, so you have time to turn the neckloop back on when you receive a call. Despite the fuzzier sound quality than my previous hardwired neckloop, I am very satisfied with the product, recharger, and the vendor.
