Hearing Loop Systems are the invisible solution for the invisible hearing disability. Loop systems connect directly and invisibly to the hearing aid / cochlear implant telecoil. No additional receivers, earphones or headsets are required. Receive customized sound tuned to your hearing loss with your hearing device - actually, it's your personal loudspeaker! Maximize your hearing aid experience with a hearing loop system. FM and Infrared system performance pales in comparison to hearing loop technology.

Mission: To Loop Canada, one venue at a time!

What is a hearing aid telecoil (t coil)?

"What is a hearing aid telecoil and why would I want one"?
Or perhaps, why wouldn't I want one? Read on, want one, get one! Or maybe two - one for each ear!

When used in tandem with a hearing loop, hearing aid telecoils can dramatically enhance your listening experience in public places by piping audio-system sounds directly to your hearing aids.

You walk into a venue without an assistive listening system, and you can't hear clearly without one. What do you do?

You can start by handing the theater manager or ADA coordinator or other staff member this card from our Get in the Hearing Loop toolkit. The card starts the conversation about the need for hearing loops in public venues. https://www.hearingloss.org/wp-content/uploads/GITHL_Ask_Hearing_Loops_smallcard.pdf

Rhode Island General Assembly Chambers are now hearing loop equipped!
"The more extensive improvements made in the off-session are less visible, although some will be audible. Both chambers’ sound systems have been improved with new speakers and microphones. A new hearing loop system, which transmits sound electronically to t-coil hearing aids and all cochlear implants, has been installed in both chambers, making Rhode Island the first state capitol in the country to have both of its legislative chambers and its public galleries equipped with permanent large area hearing loops, according to David Abell, a volunteer hearing loop advocate with the Rhode Island State Office of the Hearing Loss Association of America, who supported the project. Hearing loops were installed in other rooms of the State House in 2016, but could not be installed in the chambers without removing the carpeting, which was replaced as part of this project".
How about the Legislative Assembly of Ontario Chambers? We can help with that!

Thursday morning I just took my first flight from SRQ Sarasota/Bradenton airport since the airport was wired with a hearing loop system. All I can say is WOW! Again WOW! By activating my T Coil , all the airport announcements streamed DIRECTLY to my cochlear implant and once near the gate, all the gate announcements streamed directly to my CI. No second guessing. No need to ask the gate attendant for assistance. If you have a hearing aid or cochlear implant with a T-coil setting try this system. It is fantastic! THANK YOU SRQ airport and the city of Sarasota, the City with over 130 looped venues. If you don't know what a T-coil setting is and you are a hearing aid user, get your audiologist to activate it. You are missing the best feature.

Hi Agiain Bill Sorry just found out how to find the churches in the area. The Refformed churches have always been the best in hearing systems, however, I have parted ways witth them. I was hoping there might be another and thank you for having responded. Liz
Hi Bill Jacquie sent me this web siite as I mentioned that I could not find a church in Dundas that had a hearing system. I have opened what she sent but cannot seem to find your answer. If you could email me with the churches in the area that are looped, I would appreciate it. Liz Wagner
