Even with the most up-to-date technology, hearing aids can't completely separate important sounds from background noises. They don't always pick up all sounds from a distance, such as those in a performance hall, a place of worship or even a home television set viewed from across the room. In such difficult listening settings, hearing (induction) loops are often a solution.
A hearing loop provides significantly-enhanced functionality for hearing aids. A hearing loop is a wire connected to an electronic sound source that transmits that sound directly to the Telecoil in a hearing aid. A hearing loop can discreetly surround a room, a chair in your home, or even be worn around the neck. Hearing loops can be connected to a public address system, a living room television set, a telephone (land line and cellular), or any source that produces sound electronically.
