Hearing Health: Keeping You in the Loop

If you use a hearing aid, chances are you sometimes have problems hearing a speaker or other sound signal when in a noisy room, when auditoriums or TV loudspeakers are far away, or when the room acoustics reverberate sound. Hearing loop systems are designed to solve such problems. Hearing loops also called audio-induction loops or audio loops, are wired installed around the perimeter of a room, typically by the floor. Sounds from a microphone, a public-address system, or a TV feed into an amplifier through an electric current, and the amplifier sends the current to the wire.
