A loop at home? Yes! And here’s how

We’ve shared lots of information about hearing loops in public venues, but people with hearing loss should be aware that loops can be a tremendous help in the home, too.

A loop can work through your television so that you can hear clearly without the volume becoming too loud for others in the room. Family and friends can comfortably enjoy a movie or show with you.

You can also connect a loop to a wireless microphone to help communicate with friends, family, and guests in your home.

If a room is designed in a way that loop wire can’t be installed, loop pads (also called “chair pads”) can be placed under a chair or can even be used when traveling.

Longtime hearing loss advocate Loopin’ Lou Touchette has created an excellent step-by-step guide updated October 2019 with more details.

Consider a loop for your home, and as always, let us know if you need help.
