An Induction Loop, also known as a Hearing Loop or T-Loop, is an assistive listening system that provides access to facilities for those with a hearing impairment. It takes a sound source and transfers it directly to a hearing aid via a magnetic field without background noise interference or distortion.
The presence of an Induction Loop should always be indicated by the internationally recognised hearing impaired sign with a T symbol.
Over the last 25 years Hearing Loops have become the default assistive listening solution in Europe, Scandinavia and Australasia, and are now becoming increasing prevalent in America. Due to their benefits and ease of use, hard of hearing groups are mandating their installation in locations as diverse as taxis, kiosks, schools, houses of worship, concert halls and stadiums.
