“The Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) found that 85 percent of its members have telecoils in their hearing aids/CIs, and the vast majority of those people use them whenever they’re in the presence of a loop. The Committee for Communication Access in New Mexico (CCAnm) undertook a survey in 2017 that found hearing aid wearers were six times more likely to use a hearing loop as compared to a radio-frequency (RF) or IR system. Indeed, even with the offer of a neckloop, rather than earphones, the survey indicated that the majority of those who wear hearing aids would not borrow and use the necessary equipment.”
