What is a “Hearing Loop” System?
Hearing loops are the consumer-preferred assistive technology that make “all the difference in the world” for those who are unable to participate in conversations and presentations in public spaces without accommodation.
When designed and installed to meet the IEC-60188-4 compliance code, a hearing loop system delivers a wireless audio signal to all brands of hearing aids, cochlear implants and “loop listeners.” The filtered sound and lack of distortion improves clarity and comprehension greatly.
Beyond ADA compliance, hearing loop technology provides a seamless, inclusive accommodation for those with hearing loss – for large group settings and face-to-face conversations where privacy is warranted.
As advocates for assistive listening technology, the outreach team at Audio Directions brings awareness, technology and education to industries that serve the 48 million Americans with a hearing impairment.
