Hearing Loops Explained


A hearing loop system transmits an audio signal directly into a hearing aid, greatly reducing background noise, competing sounds, reverberation and other acoustic distortions that make it difficult to hear.

  • The Sound Source, such as a voice, TV, mixing console or other audio system, is captured using a microphone.
  • The Hearing Loop surrounds the area where the listening audience is located and carries the sound signal through the loop with reduced ambient noise.
  • The Sound Signal is picked up by Telecoil (or T-coil) enabled hearing aids, cochlear implants, or headsets with loop receivers.
  • Individuals with T-coil equipped hearing aids and cochlear implants simply activate the T-coil program to hear enhanced sound clarity. There is no need to check out a separate receiver.
A hearing loop (sometimes called an induction loop) is a special type of sound system for use by people suffering from hearing loss. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the telecoil inside of hearing aids, implants, and hard of hearing receivers.

Many venues have an FM or infrared (IR) system, which work okay and meet regulatory compliance – except that no one wants to be seen wearing a headset that advertises their hearing loss!  Headsets also require maintenance, cleaning, charging, etc.  Unfortunately, most FM or IR systems gather dust.  Hearing loops are the user preferred hearing assistive technology.
