How Hearing Loops Works

"Hearing loop systems solve the problem of undesired distraction by amplifying only the desired sound."

Hearing aids amplify ambient sound. Advances have made them smaller and more powerful than ever before. But that still doesn't change the fact that background noise is often the problem.

For instance, if you are at a crowded airport, you want to hear the gate announcement and other important information sent over the PA system. But as your hearing aid amplifies the sound of the loudspeaker, it also amplifies the noise of the crowd around you.

Not a hearing loop!. A hearing loop uses Faraday's Law of Induction to send a magnetic signal to the activated T-coils inside the person's hearing aid or cochlear implant wirelessly from the hearing loop installed in the room's floors or ceiling. The gate announcement or other important notification is sent directly to your ear where your hearing aid is turned into a personal loudspeaker. In fact, if you are wearing a hearing aid, you'll be able to hear the announcement BETTER THAN THOSE AROUND YOU!
