Many hearing loss sufferers, once diagnosed, purchase a quality hearing aid to help treat their condition. The improved hearing results in a better quality of life. A recent article published by the New York Times talks about the new “hearing loop”.

As the article explains: “A hearing loop, typically installed on the floor around the periphery of a room, is a thin strand of copper wire radiating electromagnetic signals that can be picked up by a tiny receiver already built into most hearing aids and cochlear implants. When the receiver is turned on, the hearing aid receives only the sounds coming directly from a microphone, not the background cacophony.”

The Hearing Loss Association of America, has now joined with the American Academy of Audiology in a campaign to make these hearing loops available to more places in the United States. This could mean a new revolution in the improvement of hearing for those suffering from hearing damage.
