How many hearing aids have the telecoil (t-coil) receptor for receiving hearing loop input?

In 2017, reports Stephen Frazier, the Consumer’s Guide to Hearing Aids showed that 71% of all hearing aids could be fitted with telecoils, as could 83% of models larger than the miniaturized completely-in-the-canal aid. Moreover, the greater people’s need for hearing assistance, the more often they have hearing aids with telecoils—as did 84 percent of Hearing Loss Association of America members in one survey. New model cochlear implants also offer telecoils.
