There are two basic components.
Firstly. the loop itself - a thin wire which runs around the
perimeter of the area where the hearing aid listeners will
The wire must be run on a level
plane in order to generate the required magnetic field and
can be under the flooring or above the doors. It doesn't
need to go around the whole room, just the area where the
people needing to hear usually sit or stand. E.g. it doesn't
have to go around the whole of a Church, just the area where
the Pews are and perhaps also the Font.
The loop plugs into the second
component, a 'loop amplifier'.
Microphones can be plugged directly
into the loop amplifier or you can take a feed directly out
from your PA system via the PA's aux out socket. This is the
best way to get the right balance between people listening
directly to the PA and using their hearing aids.
When in use, the hearing aids are
simply switched to the 'T' setting and the users hear both
speech and music with crystal clarity, as though they were
wearing headphones plugged in to a Hi Fi system.
Smaller loops are available for
office or desk situations, and personal loops are also
available for a person to wear around their neck.
