assistive listening devices

People with hearing loss often have more trouble hearing the fundamental technology that is part of everyday life, such as telephones or alarm clocks. Assistive listening devices are intended to help those with hearing impairment receive warnings or hear better by amplifying the sounds they receive.

Below are some of the most popular assistive listening devices.


Hearing aid remote control 

These are hearing aids to control basic hearing aid features, including volume and programs. Sometimes small enough to fit on a keychain, hearing aid remote controls help those with limited dexterity manage their hearing aid quickly and conveniently. 

TV Listening Systems

Several products make watching TV easier for those with hearing loss. These systems allow the user to listen to TV without disturbing anyone and are perfect for late-night viewing.

Amplified Telephones

Some people find it troublesome to comprehend speech without the benefit of visual cues. Many with hearing aids can also find it difficult to speak on a phone while wearing hearing aids. Amplified phones make life easier by increasing volume through the receiver. This volume change can be managed on most amplified phones and can increase by 35 decibels or more.

Telephone Amplifiers

These machines are a standalone device intended to improve a landline phone volume to help people with hearing loss communicate better. Most of the tools provide tone control, which minimizes background noise and is compatible with most corded home and office phones. The volume boost is often up to 40 decibels or more.

FM systems

FM systems are wireless hearing systems that help people who find it hard to hear in public places, especially over a distance in noisy environments.

They allow sound to be received closer to a speaker, sound source, or connected directly to the sound source and sent to the user, providing greater speech/sound clarity and reduced background noise.
