How does it work?

How does it work?


An induction loop system transmits an audio signal from almost any source through a wire, transforming that sound into a magnetic field. This magnetic field is then picked up by the t-coil installed in many hearing aids. The sound is then adjusted for that person’s individual hearing loss and delivered to their ear(s). It has been described as “wi-Fi” for hearing aids, which is very fitting because it is delivering the sound right from its source, directly to the hearing aids and eliminating any background noise.

There are no devices to wear which require the user to remove their hearing instruments. Wherever there is a loop system installed, all you must do is enable your t-coil (usually with a button or switch) to receive the hearing loop signal directly into the hearing aids without any background noise.

Is my hearing aid compatible?

It is estimated that approximately 60 percent of hearing aids currently have telecoils. That number increases significantly for people with more severe hearing loss, who are those that benefit from this type of system the most.

Some people are aware that they have a telecoil and might even use it currently for hearing on the telephone. Others may have a telecoil but it may not be activated. The best way to find out is to ask your hearing healthcare provider who should be able to answer that question for you. We can always help you to determine if you have a telecoil as well.
