Hearing Loops Provide an Accessible Listening Experience

The article titled “Hearing loops offer individuals with hearing loss a more accessible listening experience” talks about a technology called a hearing loop. It provides a signal to a hearing aid or cochlear implant which can be picked up by these devices and allows people to hear more clearly. When a hearing loop is installed at a site, it improves how well a hearing aid or cochlear implant works in a public space. Without hearing loops, hearing aids or cochlear implants often have a hard time picking up sounds in places with background noise such as crowded public spaces and entertainment locations such as movie theaters.
