Hearing loops explained in a graphic.

Hearing Loops

A hearing loop or audio frequency induction loop system, is wireless technology that sends an electromagnetic signal directly to an individual’s hearing aid like they have a little speaker in their ear.

CHHA Sudbury has been installing many hearing loops across the City of Greater Sudbury and North Eastern Ontario. See our list of accessible locations here.
