Loop Technology: Enhancing Hearing Aids in Public Facilities

Looking to enhance your hearing aids or improve their functionality in difficult listening situations? Then hearing loop technology may be just what you are looking for. 

Loop Technology LogoRecent organizations, such as the American Academy of Audiology and the Hearing Loss Association of America, have come together to advocate for the use of hearing loops with hearing aids.  

Induction (hearing) loop technology delivers sound directly to hearing aids equipped with telecoils. These systems are commonly found in public facilities such as churches and theaters. The advantage is the loop technology broadcasts the desired signal (sound) as a magnetic signal via the hearing loop installed in the room or facility. Those wearing hearing aids with telecoils are then able to pick up the magnetic signal with their hearing aids. 

The result? Hearing aids are turned into personal loud speakers, delivering the sound directly into the person’s ears – bypassing background noise in their environment. The desired signal is heard crisp and clear with reduced listening strain.
