Hearing Loops are the gold standard for assistive listening systems, and preferred by users. Hearing loops are the easiest to use – just click a button on the hearing aid or cochlear implant* to instantly connect to the room’s PA system. No equipment to borrow; discrete.

"Having the speaker’s presentation going right into your hearing aids improves the quality of what you hear, what you retain and the amount of energy you expend to hear. I didn’t miss 30 or 40 percent of the presentation."
