Imagine attending a play where you are not able to understand the words. Or attending an orchestra concert only to have it sound like you’re underwater. Due to the large size of these venues, room echo and extra noise make it very difficult for those with hearing aids to hear because those devices amplify ALL sound; not only 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. Because of this, listeners will be able to hear the sounds they want to hear.
People come to church to be a part of a congregation. Church members want to hear and understand the pastor’s message. Echo, reverberation, and distance from a sound source in a room are all factors that reduce hearing comprehension, therefore making it difficult to understand a sermon. 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 are sometimes difficult for the hard of hearing. Installing hearing loops in dining halls, activity areas, chapels, and individual rooms increase the social aspect for those in a retirement home. 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 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. Counter loops can be used in places such as checkout counters, pharmacy windows, bank windows, doctor’s offices, airport ticketing counters, 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 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 would be useful for delivering a broadcast to users moving through exhibits. This would allow anyone standing within a certain area to hear commentary on the subject without additional devices to carry around. Since most hearing aids already have a t-coil setting, using a hearing loop in this situation would be effortless.
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’re sitting. Alternative systems such as FM or Infra-red require the user to wear cumbersome headsets over their hearing devices. Our hearing loops require no additional devices because they use the t-coil system that is already in most hearing aids.
The inside of a bus, train, or airplane can be noisy for passengers with ordinary hearing aids. A regular hearing aid will amplify ALL sound. Not just to sound you need to hear. A hearing loop in public transportation will help those with compatible hearing aids to hear important information coming from the PA. Hearing loops are the only “assistive listening” technology suitable for use on public passenger vehicles. Since there is no direct access to staff on these modes of transportation, there is 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. Installing a hearing loop in funeral home chapels enhance the service for those with hearing challenges by creating a comfortable experience for reminiscing and recollecting.
