About 70% of the two million people in the UK who have a hearing aid use them regularly. Background noise can make speech difficult to hear in noisy or reverberant environments. The distance from the speech source to the listener can also cause a problem where furnishings and bodies absorb sound energy.
Induction loop or infra red systems can help with these problems by replacing the sound path between the sound source and the listener. The signal is received from a microphone placed adjacent to the speech source and is then either amplified into a floor or ceiling loop array or broadcast by a wall-mounted infra-red radiator within the room. The listener then uses either their own hearing aid switched to the 'T' position to pick up the loop signal or a special infra-red receiver fitted with either a neck loop or headsets.We offer a selection of systems to suit all requirements.
We will be adding useful items of audio-visual test equipment to this category which will be of interest to busy A/V technicians, facilities managers and roadies.
If you are looking for a specific piece of test equipment now, please e-mail us your requirement and we will be pleased to assist you.
