Loop Systems

We design our wide selection of hearing/induction loop systems to match the audio demands of your environment. Our systems provide a great audio experience for visitors with T-Coil-enabled devices such as hearing aids and cochlear implants. Whether you need a loop for a reception desk, theater, or anything in between, we have you covered.

What is a Hearing Loop?

A hearing (induction) loop system is a hearing assistance technology. It uses copper wire and an amplifier to transfer sound to hearing aids, implants, and receivers by creating a magnetic field. This field delivers clear, amplified sound from the audio source in the room without background noise. 

Hearing loop variations exist for different rooms and settings: Counter Loops, Perimeter Loops, and Dual-Loops.

These are compact hearing loop systems specifically for small areas such as customer service counters or information desks.

Perimeter Loop

These loops encircle an entire room or an area, creating an invisible "loop" that transmits audio signals evenly to all corners. This loop is designed for small spaces such as waiting rooms and small meeting areas.

This loop employs multiple individual loop arrays arranged in a specific pattern to distribute audio signals more accurately. It is commonly used in large spaces such as theaters, conference centers, or places of worship.

Loop Success Stories


Hearing loop systems offer a seamless integration with users’ t-coil-enabled hearing aids or cochlear implants. They also act as a functional method for fulfilling legal accessibility requirements within venues. The system’s unlimited user capacity allows multiple guests to benefit simultaneously. These systems work in spaces of all sizes, from small service counters to large conference centers.

A hearing loop system can provide assistive listening to anyone within loop boundary with a t-coil enabled device such as a hearing aid, cochlear implant, or t-coil-enabled receiver.  

Only t-coil-enabled hearing aids, cochlear implants, and receivers work with a loop system. Venues can provide handheld loop receivers for users without hearing aids.
