Situations that many of us take for granted such as meetings, classes, or trips to the theatre become an impossible feat for those with hearing loss, which affects 1 in 6 of the UK population. For someone wearing a hearing device (a hearing aid or cochlear implant), background noise is very often audible over the speaker or performer, impacting upon their experience.

How does it work?

In a hearing loop, sound is picked up through a microphone, converted to magnetic impulses by the driver and transmitted via a loop aerial. This magnetic signal is picked up by the telecoil within the hearing aid and converted back to speech. Clever stuff!

At Contacta we do things differently. Our intelligent hearing loop drivers are designed to give installers, users and listeners the best experience.  Our ground-breaking approach to design and specification, along with our pioneering use of new technology, has produced these simple, highly intelligent and powerful drivers, giving you everything you could wish for in your quest for accessibility and exceptional service provision.

Technology can be put in place which allows you to realise the full potential of every interaction, resulting in happy customers and an enhanced reputation. There is also legislation that stipulates where hearing loops should be installed. In order to comply with recent regulations you need to know what they say.‍‍‍

We are specialists in hearing loops. Our large area loops allow multiple hearing device wearers to hear their desired sound source with complete clarity. Whether it be a small meeting room, a classroom, or even a sports stadium, we can install discrete large area hearing loops to your specification.

Every room is different. We specify loops in a unique way, taking into account the uses, make up and size of each room to ensure that your customers get the best listening experience. Without proper installation, even the best loop driver will not perform to its best so we highly recommend that you get in touch with us and we can recommend the perfect way to install your loop.

1 to 1 communication should be easy and natural, but instead it can be a stressful activity which causes fatigue and embarrassment for those with hearing loss. Many people affected even choose not to visit till points or counters that are poorly provisioned.
