According to tech site crave.com, Nokia’s “Wireless Loopset” is a device designed to hang around the neck that basically turns a t-coil-equipped hearing aid into a Bluetooth headset.

In addition to providing the wireless connection says crave, the Loopset includes such features as vibrating alerts and single-button dialing, according to Gearlog, and will also work with Cochlear implants.

While looped around the neck, the device is also designed to greatly reduce the chance of interference because of its close proximity to the hearing aid, says the report.

And Nokia says it expects the Loopset to ship early next year, selling for around the $US300 mark.
