So what exactly is a hearing loop? A hearing loop, also called a hearing induction loop, allows people who have a hearing aid or cochlear implant to hear clear audio straight from the source. The reason why a loop is so convenient is because the loop is compatible with most hearing aids and cochlear implants. No additional devices are needed!

The loop itself consists of wires that radiate magnetic signals to a receiver already built into most hearing aids and cochlear implants. When the receiver is turned on it receives the sound coming directly from the source. That means they will hear clear audio with no room noise; an otherwise impossible occurrence without this technology. Video provided by Sertoma

This is the universal symbol for a hearing loop. The “T” signifies that an available telecoil, or t-coil, compatible system is in place at the venue. Most people with a hearing aid or cochlear implant are able to use the system with a simple switch. When you see this sign at an establishment you can count on everyone being included in the conversation.

We would love to see this sign at EVERY theater, auditorium, retirement home, bank, pharmacy, lecture hall, and more! Installation is possible almost anywhere.
