What is a Counter Loop system?

A Counter loop system is designed for one-to -one communication with a hearing aid user that has the hearing aid in the T position, across a counter, reception desk or similar location . The counter loop provides clear communication with hearing aid wearers when background noise is a problem or when speech is restricted such as a glass partition or window.

The Way it works

The counter loop has a small cable that is fixed to the front of a counter or desk, both ends of the cable are connected to the output of a specialist designed loop amplifier. A current from the loop amplifier powers the cable and the amplifier gets its signal from a direct sound source. This can be a microphone or a connection into a TV, PA system, laptop or DVD player.

How it can help

The resulting electric current in the induction loop produces a small magnetic field. The hearing aid user can pick up this field when they switch their hearing instrument to the T position. The user is then able to hear audible sound very clearly with the background noise significantly reduced, the loop will provide audio to the individual hearing aid user within the magnetic and is designed for one to one communication

We recommend

Choosing the right loop system does require support from a loop engineer, so we recommend that when looking for a room loop that you contact one of our engineers who will be able to provide an evaluation and advice on the best system and ensure it meets your requirements.
