The LA240 Home Hearing Loop Pad System provides a practical solution for hearing aid users to listen more easily to their TV or Audio equipment via the “T” or “Loop” program of their hearing aid.
With no direct connection between the user and a TV or Audio equipment the user is able to move freely within the looped area and listen comfortably to a TV or audio equipment without the distractions of normal listening.
The Loop system picks up the sound from a TV via a direct connection or microphone and feeds it to the amplifier. The sound is then passed to a loop of wire around the listening area, which in turn transmits the sound inductively, “magnetic sound waves”, to a hearing aid with the loop facility.
The user may then adjust the loop volume or tone to suit their own hearing preference without affecting others.
Please Note: The LA240 Home Hearing Loop Pad System is supplied with a Loop Pad. If Loop Cable is required, please see the LA240 Home Hearing Loop System (135-250).
A Loop Pad is an alternative to loop cable and is used to create a localised or portable system to avoid interference with other systems or where confidentiality is required.
