Thank you again Carolyn. I responded to your personal message prior to seeing this one. Neckloops are wonderful. I actually bought 5 of them on eBay this summer for $11 each, and have given them to people who have never tried them to use. I’ve never found the M/T feature helpful because of even a small bit of background noise. So, when I use the neckloop on my computer it brings great sound to me from others, but I can’t hear myself and tend to talk louder than I should.
I’m looking for a device that will allow me to hear and also to project. In other words something with a microphone connected to it. Like the headphones that have a microphone that some people are using. It just has to be capable of being used with my CI processor and my HA. Not sure I would use telecoils if the ear muff would allow sound via my personal devices.
I was prepared to call Best Buy to purchase such a device if it exists. We have a Zoom social for our HLAA chapter this evening. Since I’ve been told that my internal computer mike doesn’t project well, I thought I’d try to remedy that. The external mike I have cuts off sound coming in from others. That is an old Radio Shack mike. Works great for others to hear me, but I want to hear them too. J
Will figure this out. I appreciate everyone’s input.

Julie, I use a "telecoil" solution. Telecoil is like having "noise cancelling headphones built into my hearing aids". I have two hearing aid settings--one is noise cancelling and the other allows the background noise.
