Hearing aid direct input shoes

Some hearing aids have a direct connection facility, usually referred to as direct input. This facility allows the direct connection of the hearing aid to other audio equipment via a connector usually referred to as a shoe; thus the name 'Hearing aid direct input shoe'.

Connevans is able to provide, usually from stock, a wide range of hearing aid direct input shoes; many customers find the range of options overwhelming! You can put your shoe against the picture and identify most shoes without difficulty, making re-ordering easier for you and us! If you are unsure what model of hearing aid you have, if may be worth referring back to your hearing aid instructions, which may include the manufacturer's part number for the appropriate shoe. If you are in any doubt, check with your hearing aid manufacturer. 

By each shoe we indicate whether it is compatible for use with 'ear level receivers' such as MLxi, MicroMLxS, MLxS, MLx, Lexis, Amigo, Scola and fmGenie WDI units. 

Please note, that although we usually show two shoes in the picture to give different views, shoes are supplied singly and priced each. Multiple views are shown to help with identification.

Direct input cables will need to be purchased separately and can be found in the section that they would be associated with ...
... ie fmGenie in 'fmGenie radio aid system', CRM-220 in 'CRM-220 radio system' and personal stereo direct input connection leads in 'Help with audio and television'.
