EXAMPLE OF A HEARING LOOP

Even with the most up-to-date technology, hearing aids cannot completely separate important sounds from background noises; nor do they pick up all sounds from a distance, such as those in a performance hall, a place of worship or even a home TV viewed from across the room.

In settings such as these, hearing loops offer a solution. A hearing loop wirelessly transmits sound to an antenna called a telecoil (T-coil) in a hearing aid. Much like Wi-Fi, a hearing loop will connect the user wireless to the PA system, a home TV or other sound sources.

Why a loop system? No extra equipment is required! Hearing aid wearers simply turn on their T-coil program. No extra parts to return – earbuds, headphones, neck loops. No maintenance or hygiene issues.
