What is a Hearing Loop?

Hearing loops wirelessly transmit a crystal clear sound directly to a hearing aid, cancelling out problematic background noise and poor acoustics.

How Does it Work?

The sound source (a microphone or soundtrack, etc.) is delivered by a loop amp into a thin cable usually looped around the perimeter of a room. Those seated in the ‘looped’ area can receive the signal wirelessly via their own hearing aid by switching on the Tele Coil (or T-Coil) receiver.

Hearing loops have been prominent in Europe for decades. More and more venues in North America are being looped due to the increased aging population and the success enjoyed overseas.

Where are Hearing Loops used?

  • Large public facilities like churches, theatres, auditoriums, concert halls and meeting rooms.
  • Service counters at banks, hotel reception desks, fast food counters, etc.
  • Even tour buses and taxi's can be looped!

What does a loop system cost?

  • Complete loop system installations vary from venue to venue, with pricing in the $2,000-$5,000 range for most venues.
  • Large venues may cost more.
  • Counter top units start at $650.00.
  • Custom design and installation ensure that you get the right product for your venue.

Hearing Facts

  • Nearly 1 out of every 4 adult Canadians reports having some degree of hearing loss.
  • Hearing loss is the third most prevalent chronic condition in older adults.
  • Its prevalence rises with age - 46% of people aged 45 to 87 have hearing loss.
  • Aging is the number one cause of hearing loss and the incidence of hearing loss is poised to climb dramatically as the population ages.

Even with today's technology, the best hearing aids can't separate the sounds you want from background noise, or pick up all of the sounds from a distant source like on stage or movie screen.

“Loop systems have been embedded in European culture for the past 40 years. Expert Hearing is excited to be part of this movement, and is fully prepared to support the successful implementation in each
and every community.”
