As New Yorkers, we proudly claim our city to be the best in the land, full of opportunity and promise. Those of us with hearing loss have every reason to feel the same way. Forbes named New York City as the most accessible city in the country for people with hearing loss. Thanks in large part to the ever-increasing number of places featuring “induction loop” systems, New York offers an abundance of opportunity to better hear the sounds of the city.
In New York, hearing aids also serve as wireless loudspeakers, delivering clear, personalized sound through these loop systems. Theatres, museums, subway information booths, places of worship, auditoriums and even taxis improve listening experiences throughout the five boroughs and metro area. Loop systems magnetically transmit sound to hearing aids with telecoils (T-coils), enabling hard-of-hearing New Yorkers to better process the world of sound around them, bringing the city more fully to life.
