Connect Every Member of Your Audience to the Power of Sound with Hearing Loops
Bridging the Gap for Hearing Impaired Individuals
Did you know that approximately 1.1 billion people worldwide are affected by hearing loss? That's a staggering 16% of the global population, and about 1 in 4 of these individuals use a hearing aid. At SEQ Electronics & Entrance Systems, we believe in bridging the gap and ensuring equal access to sound for everyone.
Introducing Hearing Loops: A Seamless Audio Experience
Introducing Hearing Loops, an innovative technology designed to provide a seamless audio experience to individuals with hearing aids. By installing a Hearing Loop system in your space, you can create an inclusive environment where every member of your audience can enjoy the same high-quality sound.
How Hearing Loops Work
But what exactly does a Hearing Loop system do? It takes an audio signal and transmits it as a magnetic field into the surrounding space. This magnetic field is then picked up by hearing aids equipped with telecoils (T-coils), which convert it back into crystal-clear audio.
The Benefits of Hearing Loops
Why should you consider installing Hearing Loops? Well, despite the advancements in digital hearing aids, they are primarily designed for one-on-one communication in close proximity. Background noise and distance from the sound source can pose challenges for individuals with hearing loss, making it difficult to separate desired sounds from environmental noise.
By providing Hearing Loops, you ensure that people with hearing loss have equal access to information and communication, just like their hearing counterparts. Moreover, anti-discrimination legislation in many countries requires service providers to make reasonable adjustments, including the use of "Assistive Listening" technology, to cater to the needs of individuals with hearing loss.
Hearing Loops offer a unique advantage as a transient Assistive Listening technology that directly connects to users' own hearing aids. This eliminates the need for distributing receivers and ensures a personalized and seamless experience for individuals with hearing loss. In fact, a well-designed and fully functional Hearing Loop system is essential for compliance with the IEC 60118-4 Standard, which defines the performance criteria.
