Assistive Listening Devices

Assistive Listening Devices

For someone with a hearing loss, it’s easy to believe that their hearing aid is what sets the limits for how well they can hear – and to accept those limits. Although today’s hearing aids provide good sound reproduction, in demanding environments many users of hearing aids still experience the technology’s limitations.
Hearing aids amplify all sound, including disturbing background noise. This means that many people with hearing aids have problems hearing well in group discussions, noisy environments or during phone calls, for instance. 

Assistive listening devices bring clarity and compliment hearing aids.

Types of  Assistive listening devices available are:

  • Mini microphones and audio-streamers which streams sound directly to your hearing aids, even across the room. provide additional hearing support in daily communications that can be used in conjunction with hearing aids.  
  • Remote control which offers complete visual control of your hearing aids, making it easy to change programs and adjust volume.
  • Safety and alerting systems  such as strobe light and vibrating alarm clocks
  • Amplified telephones with an alerting ring flasher
