Hearing loops

Around 50% of people with hearing loss have experienced issues accessing goods and services. A hearing loop will help make your organisation accessible to anyone who uses hearing aids – and ensure you’re compliant with equality legislation.

What is a hearing loop?

A hearing loop helps people with hearing aids to hear conversations more easily. It works when a person’s hearing aids are switched to the hearing loop setting. Sound goes directly to the hearing aids with no distracting background noise. There are different types of hearing loops available. Counter loops are recommended for reception areas and service desks, room loops are suitable for meeting or training rooms, and infrared and FM systems are popular for larger venues.

To discuss your new or existing loop system requirement, call us on 0808 808 0123 or submit an initial enquiry form.
