Removing Barriers to Hearing

About Hearing Loops

What Are Hearing Loops?

A hearing loop is a physical loop of specialized wire installed in any size room. Hearing loops are discrete -- Only known by people needing hearing assistance. No boxes, headphones, or unsanitary equipment. Only your hearing aids or cochlear implants are required to obtain crystal clear sound you need to hear to believe.

Hearing Loops are safe for everyone, even for those with implanted medical devices.

Why Are Hearing Loops Necessary?

A hearing aid amplifies each and every sound. It can be very difficult for the user to hear a specific sound when there is background noise, since the background noise is also amplified. A hearing loop provides a wireless direct link to the sound source, greatly reducing or eliminating background noise. You now clearly understand what has been spoken.

How Do Hearing Loops Work?

  1. Source Transfers Sound To Loop Amplifier

    • A sound source such as a microphone, public-address system or TV feeds sound into a loop amplifier via an electrical current.
  2. Loop Amplifier Sends Current To Wire Loop

    • The loop amplifier sends the current to a wire-loop that is specifically designed for your room. This current creates a magnetic field, which emanates from the loop.
  3. T-Coil Picks Up Signal

    • Tiny wire telecoils (T-Coils) built into many hearing aids and cochlear implants turn the magnetic signal into an audio signal.
  4. Hearing Aid Converts To Sound

    • The hearing aid or implant converts the loop signal into sound that meets the listener's needs.
