Imagine attending a play and not being able to understand the words. Or attending an orchestra concert only to have it sound like you’re under water. Due to the large sizes of these venues, the room echo and extra noise make it very difficult for those with hearing aids to hear since those devices amplify all sound; not just the sound you want to hear. Our hearing loops will fix that by only delivering crystal clear sound right to the ear straight from the source.
People come to church to be a part of a congregation, to hear the message. Echo, reverberation, and distance from a sound source in a room are all factors that reduce hearing comprehension, and make it difficult to understand a speech. A hearing loop ensures your church members with hearing loss will not only understand the message, but continue to be a valued and vital part of your worship community.
Social gatherings and events can sometimes be difficult for those who are hard of hearing. Adding hearing loops in the dining halls, activity areas, chapels, and individual rooms increases the social aspect of those in a retirement home by improving and ensuring the quality of life for seniors with compatible hearing aids or cochlear implants. We have a variety of portable and permanent hearing loop device options available, including an ADA compliant hearing loop table that has a hearing loop and 4 mics built into the table.
Counter hearing loops are designed for face-to-face conversations for individuals using telecoil-equipped hearing devices or listeners, where high levels of ambient background noise exist. They are permanently wired into a service desk. Use of the counter loop gives hearing aid users the ability to hear staff clearly avoiding confusion and embarrassment. Examples of where a counter loop can be used include checkout counters, pharmacy windows, bank windows, doctor’s offices, airport ticketing counters, restaurants, and more.
Hearing the TV and understanding the words can sometimes be a challenge to the hearing impaired. We offer two easy in-home hearing loop solutions to fix this problem.
Home Loop: Loop an entire room, such as a living room, to the TV, stereo, MP3 player, or anything you want crystal clear audio from so anyone with a T-coil can enjoy.
Loop Pad: The chair loop Pad is the easiest way to loop your favorite chair. Telecoil users just place it under the chair or under the cushion. A simple, single-user solution to enjoy your TV or stereo system at your comfort level without disturbing others.
Hearing loops in museums and art galleries are the perfect fit for delivering a broadcast to users moving through exhibits. A hearing loop would allow anyone standing within a certain area to hear commentary on the subject without additional devices to carry around.
It is extremely important for students to understand their teachers, professors, and school officials to excel in academics. Even with mild hearing loss, the listening effort is exhausting. Our hearing loop technology eliminates background noise and echoing by sending a signal directly to your hearing device. Imagine hearing the instructor as though they are only a few inches from your ears, no matter where you are in the room. Alternative systems such as FM or Infra-red requires the user to wear cumbersome headsets over their hearing devices.
The inside of a bus, train, airplane or transportation terminal can be noisy enough that passengers with ordinary hearing aids can’t separate important public announcements from the sound of a crowd, a crying baby, background music, or nearby conversations. A hearing loop can make a dramatic difference, enabling most hearing aid wearers to clearly hear the PA system by broadcasting its sound directly into their ears. Hearing loops are the only “assistive listening” technology suitable for use on public passenger vehicles. This is because the users of the service may only be on board for short periods and have no direct access to staff, providing no opportunity to distribute receivers.
The funeral was well handled, the decor was impressive, and the eulogy was beautifully written, but with moderate to severe hearing loss, you couldn’t understand the speaker. The ability to understand a sermon or eulogy at a funeral home for a relative, friend or co-worker is paramount for people in difficult situations. Installing a hearing loop system in funeral home chapels enhances the service for those with hearing challenges by creating a comfortable experience for reminiscing and recollecting.
