First English Lutheran Church

Now has a Hearing Loop For Hearing Aids Users  Equipped with T-coils 

  What is an induction loop and how does it work?

Hearing Loops allow people who wear hearing aids with built in T-coils or T-switches to directly receive the sound from the microphone in their hearing aids without having to pick up a separate listening device. If you wear hearing instruments you will need to find out if your devices come equipped with this wireless receiver built in, in order to hear better in church. Most of the time you can access the T program by pushing a button on your hearing aid or remote control. If your hearing aids do not have a separate T-program it may have to be activated by your audiologist.

In Europe thousands of hearing loops are in use, including one at Westminster Abbey

Why are hearing loops needed if I already own hearing aids?

Digital hearing aids have significantly improved in the last decade, but they still do not restore hearing to normal. Therefore, understanding speech in reverberant places such as auditoriums or churches is often still difficult. Hearing aids equipped with T- coils can help reduce this problem.

When a hearing aid is set to T-coil, the instrument becomes a personalized speaker in the ear for the sounds that are picked up by the microphone of the public address system. That way sounds are heard clearly, without distortion or background noise.

For questions about your hearing aids visit your audiologist or dispenser
or email audiologist Juliette Sterkens, AuD
