Hearing Loop Installation Across Texas

“A person is said to have hearing loss if they are not able to hear as well as someone with normal hearing, meaning hearing thresholds of 20 dB or better in both ears. It can be mild, moderate, moderately severe, severe or profound, and can affect one or both ears. Major causes of hearing loss include congenital or early onset childhood hearing loss, chronic middle ear infections, noise-induced hearing loss, age-related hearing loss, and ototoxic drugs that damage the inner ear.” Source: World Health Organization

Hearing loss is an invisible disability that can drastically affect a person’s way of living. We’d like to change that. Hearing loss is a disability that few people truly understand. Because of this, people who suffer from hearing loss often feel alienated in every day activities. According to a John Hopkins research study, one in five Americans over the age of 12 have hearing loss severe enough to make communications difficult.

What Is A Hearing Loop?

A hearing induction loop is an assisted listening system used by those with hearing aids and cochlear implants. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to the Telecoil setting. Hearing loop installation can be done almost anywhere!

Benefits Of A Hearing Loop

Crystal clear audio is delivered to anyone already using a hearing aid or cochlear implant. That means no juggling between hearing aids and headsets like FM and Infra-red, no room noise, no echoing, and no hassle. Benefit from having a “hearing friendly” establishment!

Where Can They Be Installed?

A hearing loop can provide significantly enhanced functionality for hearing aids and cochlear implants in numerous venues. Theaters, churches, auditoriums, and TV rooms are just a fraction of the places hearing loops can be installed. Hearing loop installation can happen almost anywhere!
