​What is a Hearing Loop and Where are they Available?


A hearing loop or induction loop offers a valuable solution for those with hearing loss. 

Imagine going to a church service and not being able to hear the sermon or worship music. When you cannot hear, it's hard to participate and it can seem like you're just going through the motions. Those with hearing loss can feel frustrated and isolated when they cannot hear what is going on. Hearing aids alone cannot eliminate all troublesome background noise. 

Hearing Loop Systems Support Those With Hearing Losshearing loop

One out of three people over the age of 65 have hearing loss so this technology is an advancement that make a difference in the lives of many. And, fortunately, hearing loops are becoming more and more standard in public spaces. 

Many can use this technology with their existing hearing aids to remove all background noise. It is similar to using Bluetooth, but better!

What is a Hearing Loop?  

A hearing loop system is designed for hearing enhancement in public spaces. It is set up so that signals are communicated to users of hearing aids equipped with magnetic pick-up coils. 

A professional installer who evaluates spaces for hearing loops will develop the best plan for each space on a case-by-case basis. Typically, the coils are installed underneath carpet, behind baseboards, and on ceilings. In some cases a small trench is dug in concrete to place the wire into. The wire is then fed into an amplifier that works with hearing aid devices to provide enhanced sound quality for those that use it.

Listeners who sit or stand inside the loop and turn on their hearing aid T-coils can hear better!

A T-Coil, or telecoil, is a copper wire that is placed within a hearing aid. This T-Coil will pick up sound that is going through a loop wire Overall, hearing loops offer people with hearing devices an amplification experience. The system provides greatly improved sound clarity and it's discreet.

Where are Hearing Loops Available?

Hearing loops are commonly installed at locations where groups of people gather or where presentations are given. A hearing loop can be installed in churches, buses, performing arts centers, theaters, auditoriums, libraries, courtrooms, conference rooms, homes, and more! 

There are several locations throughout New Mexico that offer this technology.
