Hearing loops can be beneficial in a very wide range of environments, from large venues such as theatres and conference facilities, to teaching spaces, meeting rooms and one-to-one communications such as ticket counters and reception desks. They are the only effective solution to assist hearing aid users in transport environments, in vehicles, terminals and stations.
Where can hearing loops be used?
- Transport systems
Airports, stations and transport networks, elevators, help points, car park access points
Taxis and private cars, minibuses, coaches, trains, trams and boats
Theatres, cinemas and concert halls, stadia and sports venues, places of worship, conference and lecture halls
Counters, intercoms and entry-phones, drive-throughs, help points
Meeting rooms, video conference facilities, desks and offices
TV rooms, phones, individual car systems
Lecture halls, classrooms
Public address systems, voice alarm systems, help points
Hearing loop systems may not be suitable if:
- There is substantial background noise, which will reduce the effectiveness of any assistive listening system
- There is no practical way to install the loop cable (sometimes requires creative solutions – please ask if you are not sure!)
- There is no clearly defined, intelligible audio source available
- Electrical instruments such as electric guitars or electric bass guitars are used within the area covered by the loop.
