I started the original Headset with Hearing Aids thread back in 2021. I’m now wearing Costco Kirkland 10.0T hearing aids which are made by Sonova / Phonak in Switzerland. The key to using T-coil is the ability to mute the hearing aid microphone. This makes the hearing aid itself act like a hearing protection earplug and when using a ANR headset you actually get two means of noise attenuation – hearing aids, when muted, acted as passive noise reduction and then of course the ANR headset. I have also upgraded to Lightspeed Zulu3. Audio quality and noise reduction in the RV-12 is very good…

Been flying with hearing aids (Siemens) since 2010. I’m on my 3rd set, fully digital, behind the ear. I fly with Bose A-20’s, as well as my wife’s Lightspeed Zulu’s and a DC non ANR.

From day one, I’ve not had any issues nor have I needed special programming. I have 3 settings, Normal, Noisy and TV, all manually or Bluetooth adjusted. Before engine start I enable noisy setting and drop volume 2 clicks, then its go fly. No issues hearing ATC, ATIS or intercom chatter. Lucky I guess?
