Hearing Loop Systems
A Loop System can make hearing aids twice as valuable! Look for the blue logo on the left to identify areas that are equipped with a Loop System.
Hearing Loop Systems use an induction wire that is placed around a room and connected to a sound source (Television, microphone, etc). Hearing aid users can then switch their hearing aid to the ‘T’ (T-Coil/Telephone/Telecoil) setting by a simple press of a button to experience dramatically enchanced sound quality. If your hearing aid does not have a ‘T’ program, you can still use a loop, but you will also need a ‘loop listener’. Some loop listeners are small boxes with headphones – others are worn as an earpiece.
