The TTY adapter is intended to enable the use of aids for the hearing impaired. It is not, as SOme might assume, a simple 3.5 mm male/female adapter to allow the use of cables with bulky plugs. However, it might be helpful if Apple were to make this a little clearer in the item's description.

    It would also be helpful if Apple were to actually make a 3.5 mm male/female adapter like the one that I thought I was buying! Full marks, however, for producing this useful piece of equipment, even if it is of no use to me.

I am using it with a One of my frustrations with the iPhone was the lack of plug in telephone headsets. This solves the problem. I am using it with a noise cancelling Plantronics headset and am as happy as can be. Voice and sound quality are both better than with any Bluetooth unit and as good or better than holding the telephone up to your ear.

    Note that the three-contact adapters sold at Radio Shack and other places don't work. I am not sure why, but you need to get this four-contact TTY plug for good voice quality. (see the photo and compare to the others to see what I am talking about).

I have to I purchased this adapter in hope that it would allow me to use a corded headset with a boom microphone for my business. I have to manipulate the adapter by pressing in from the top firmly to hear. Once I release the pressure, I hear nothing. Apple do not have any other headsets with a boom mic, only ear bud or Bluetooth devices. If some could offer a solution or suggestion, I would greatly appreciate it.

    With a TTY, the conversation is typed rather than spoken and direct communication is possible with anyone who has a similar device. Calls placed to or from a non-TTY user can be placed through the Telecommunications Relay Service allowing the user to "talk"

  • Hearing Aid compatible headsets work this this TTY adapter

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    For all you hearing impaired phone users out there that suffer when trying to navigate the newer cell phones and worry about compa For all you hearing impaired phone users out there that suffer when trying to navigate the newer cell phones and worry about compatibility with your existing hearing aid compatible telephone accessories. I wear two BTE digital hearing aids with T-coil switches for hearing aid use when on the phone. I often use my Hatis Freedom Mach II headset for my office, home and cell phone telephone use. (The Hatis headsets are great by the way, very strong induction signal and great clarity). Hatis headsets all have 2.5 mm headset jacks and must be adpated to work with the iphone 4S headset jack (special configuration of 3.5 mm jack). This TTY adapter does the trick and works very well as an adapter between my iphone 4S and my Hatis Mach II headsets. I also use it to connect my headsets when listening to recorded books on my ipod and/or iphone.
