Electric Sound Benelux, a subsidiary of the RRB group of companies, is pleased to announce its partnership with Ampetronic, the world’s leading developer of Hearing Loop technology.
The partnership will expand Electric Sound’s portfolio to include assistive listening technologies and the provision of comprehensive solutions and educational training to customers across the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. The addition of induction loop technology compliments Electric Sound’s already established offering of leading audio brands.
Over the past 25 years Hearing Loops, also known as Induction Loops, have become the default assistive listening solution in Europe, Scandinavia, Australasia and the USA. This is primarily as a result of technological advances by Ampetronic and the efforts of people with hearing loss, who are demanding the benefits that this technology can bring to them.
A Hearing Loop system transmits an audio signal directly into a Telecoil hearing aid, reducing the need for an external receiver. The hearing aid becomes the receiver and the experience is enhanced as users receive sound tailored to their individual hearing loss requirements. Hearing Loop use is discrete as users don’t have to identify themselves and have no need to request or wear additional receivers.
Hearing Loops can be installed in a variety of environments, from larger venues such as theatres, conference facilities and houses of worship to smaller, one-on-one communication settings such as at ticket counters and in meeting rooms. Hearing Loops can also benefit be installed in taxis, trains, buses and trams.
Commenting on the partnership, Ampetronic’s Managing Director Julian Pieters said:
“After 15 years of market development activities with our former partner TAU Audio Solutions, the time is now right to scale up our activities and capitalise on the growing Assistive Listening sector.
We are delighted to partner with Electric Sound Benelux, a company that shares our commitment, not only to quality technology and market education, but also to improving the lives of people with hearing loss. Electric Sound Benelux understand the need to deliver standard compliant systems that provide a genuine benefit to the end user and are working closely with the Ampetronic team to ensure that they are fully trained in all aspects of the technology. Knowledge that they can pass on to their own clients”.
