Hearing Live vs Hearing through a Loop
This brief video of a presentation in a large room is about 50 seconds in length. In the first half, the audio is live -- listening as it sounds through the venue's sound system. In the second half, you'll hear through the hearing loop, and you'll be relieved at the difference. Enjoy!
What is a Hearing Loop and
How Does It Work?
A hearing loop is a system -- installed in a venue such as an auditorium or sanctuary -- that enables users of hearing aids to hear clearly and comfortably without hearing background noise and without using any special equipment. The components of a hearing loop are the loop amplifier, which receives an audio signal from the venue sound system, and the loop wire, which transmits the signal clearly to users of hearing aids in the looped area.
In a looped room -- no matter how large -- every audience member with a hearing aid or Cochlear implant has a clear, direct, wireless connection with the microphones in the venue's sound system. An audience member without a hearing aid may hear through the loop using a small loop receiver with earbuds or headphones.
There is no limit to the number of people in the room who can access the hearing loop.
View the 2-minute video below for an illustration of how a hearing loop works.
How Do I Get a Hearing Loop?
Simple 3-Step Design & Installation Process
Active Life Hearing Loops LLC provides the following simple 3-Step Design & Installation Process so that you can evaluate the performance of a hearing loop in your venue without cost or commitment.
Step 1. Site Survey
During a 3-to-4-hour visit to your venue, we will take physical dimensions, set up a test loop, and collect enough data to prepare a design. We will deliver to you the design & an estimate for installing a
state-of-the-art IEC 60118-4-certified hearing loop system.
Step 2. Live Demonstration
With your approval of the design & estimate, we will install a temporary evaluation loop that you may use in your normal activity (worship service, live theater performance, etc.). This allows you to get feedback from your members or patrons from their first-hand experience hearing through the loop,
There is no cost or obligation for Steps 1 & 2.
Step 3: Installation
This is the permanent installation and commissioning of the system.
