The T-comm accessory for the Neptune processor from Advanced Bionics is now available in the United States and Canada! There's an introductory price of $150 now until April, then it'll be $300. You'll need a headpiece with a BTE cable, a T-mic and a UHP cable to use with the T-comm. I'm pretty excited! I already have one ordered, and from my understanding, you can use it right away without having to program the Neptune to use it (and it can also be used with the PSP processor as well). The T-comm also has telecoil built into it, ready for use as well. Pretty cool! The T-mic capability will definitely come in handy when I use the FM on the Neptune in college. I'm definitely looking forward to using the T-comm!
Also, the T-comm comes in the same 3 colors as the Harmony; dark sienna, silver and beige. Check out these spy photos of the T-comm from the HLAA convention in June. There's a switch on the T-comm so you can use T-coil alone, T-coil + T-mic, or T-mic alone. When you use the T-comm, the headpiece mic will be disabled and the T-mic will take over. You cannot use an aux only program with the T-comm.
Call or email AB's customer service to order a T-comm (or 2 if you're bilateral) at 877.839.0036 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
