Loop Hearing System Survey

WE NEED YOUR INPUT: The Friends of the Finkelstein Memorial Library are exploring the possibility of purchasing a loop hearing system for the Fielding Room on the third floor. This system greatly increases intelligibility, eliminates background noise, and eliminates echo and distortion of sound. Before gifting this system to the library, the Friends would like input from library patrons. You can help by taking a few minutes to respond to some questions.

How Does a Loop Hearing System Work: The system consists of a wire looped around the room to modify the signal from the PA system, and also has a special amplifier that enhances the sound. The resulting magnetic energy field is then absorbed by cochlear devices and compatible hearing aids, simply by switching them to the telecoil position. (Most current hearing aids have a telecoil or T-Coil). People with slight hearing impairments who do NOT have a telecoil or a hearing aid could borrow a small receiver (“loop listener”).
