Both the miniRITE-T and BTE13 PP include "Tinnitus SoundSupport, Speech Rescue LX, DSL, and TwinLink™ with 2.4GHz wireless technology for direct streaming to iPhone® and audio devices," according to the release.
In the UK it is available to order from the end of May 2017 & will be shipped from early June 2017.
There is also a firmware upgrade in the UK giving "speech rescue" frequency lowering, a dedicated music program, a speech in noise program, a comfort program, an auditorium mic program, tinnitus support including red noise & DSL v 5 fitting formula.
I agree with the other answers. The T-coil is coming soon. If you can wait, I would wait to have the T-coil version. If you can't wait ask your provider if they will exchange, at no cost to you, when the T-coil version is available. We were able to do that for a patient.
The current miniRITE version of the Oticon Opn is not equipped with a telecoil; however, Oticon is releasing a new version equipped with a telecoil shortly (some time in June 2017.)
Not at this time!
The Oticon Opn is not currently available with a telecoil option, but the great news is that a telecoil option should be available by June 2017! Good things come to those who wait!!
I meet with the representative from Oticon New Zealand on Thursday. The Oticon Opn products with Telecoil (miniRITE-T and BTE13 PP) are expected to be available in New Zealand within six weeks (end of May 2017).
