It can be life changing for an individual with hearing loss
to hear more clearly in public places!
The key? A telecoil – an essential hearing aid component that brings clear sounds from the microphone through ADA* mandated assistive listening systems directly into the hearing aid with clarity and no background noise.

Locations with these assistive listening systems include: courtrooms, fitness rooms, hospitals, hotels, information desks,
meeting rooms, lecture halls, museums, pharmacies, places of worship, retirement communities,
service counters, sports arenas, theaters, rail cars, airports, etc.
