Crystal-clear, focus sound

According to the American Academy of Audiology, approximately 37.5 million Americans suffer from hearing loss. Often referred to as the hidden disability, it affects a wider range of people than you think.

Many people have a hearing device such as a hearing aid or cochlear implant, which essentially works like an amplifier increasing the volume of all nearby sounds. A hearing loop (or an induction loop) works in conjunction with a hearing aid or cochlear implant that has a telecoil (also referred to as t-coil), together tailoring the sound to each individual’s hearing loss. This cuts out all background noise allowing crystal-clear, focused sound. And this is how it works.

Copper wire is laid down and connected to an amplifier to create an electromagnetic field. This is linked to a microphone or other audio input, allowing speech and music to be transmitted directly to the user’s hearing device. Hearing loops can be used to enhance one-to-one communication or to enable groups to hear with clarity in larger areas.
