Let’s Loop Oregon

We’re out to Loop Oregon!

Join HearingHealth and The Hearing Loss Association of Oregon as we make Oregon accessible, and ADA Compliant, for people with hearing loss.

If you’re hearing impaired, with or without hearing devices, it’s nearly impossible to hear a sermon, people in a meeting, a play or movie, announcements, or a sales clerk in places with poor acoustics or background noise.

hearing loop auditoriumHearing Loops (aka Induction Loops) solve this problem.  Unlike FM and Infrared systems that deliver poorer sound quality, cost more, and are rarely used, Hearing Loops provide clear, noise-free sound without wearing a neck loop.  With an Induction Loop the sound is sent wirelessly into the hearing aid or cochlear device via the Telecoil in the aid.
