Listen Technologies Partners with Ampetronic to Deliver Inductive Loop SolutionListen Technologies has partnered with Ampetronic to expand its portfolio of assistive listening technologies to offer comprehensive assistive listening solutions to customers in the Americas.
Listen Technologies is pleased to announce its partnership with Ampetronic, the world leading provider of audio induction loop systems for assisting individuals with hearing loss. The addition of inductive loop technology will round out Listen Technologies’ RF and Infrared Wireless Listening offerings.
Loop solutions are widespread throughout the world and have only recently been installed into venues in North America primarily as a result of grass roots efforts of advocates in the hearing loss community. A loop solution transmits an audio signal directly into a Telecoil hearing aid reducing the need for an external receiver. The hearing aid becomes the receiver and the experience is enhanced as the users feel less self conscious about this invisible disability.
Inductive loops can be installed in a variety of environments, from larger venues such as theaters, conference facilities, houses of worship to smaller one-on-one communication settings such as ticket counters and meeting rooms. Loop solutions can also benefit those that need hearing assistance in taxi cabs, trains, and buses.
Commenting on the partnership, Julien Pieters, Ampetronic Managing Director said, “We are thrilled to partner with Listen Technologies. Listen understands the widespread need there is to deliver a complete assistive listening solution in the Americas. There is a large portion of society that is aware of the solutions available and they are creating a demand for venues to offer inclusive assistive listening solutions for this growing population.”
“The data that is available on the hearing loss population is staggering,” said Russell Gentner, Listen Technologies President. “One out of eight US citizens (12 years and older) have bilateral hearing loss – that is 52 million Americans. This growing hearing loss community wants to engage in a full rich experience in a public setting and not be concerned with whether or not the solution they need is available. The beauty of this partnership is that Listen can be impartial when it comes to the technology for assistive listening and focus on delivering the best solution to meet our customer’s needs.”
