Audio Loops Provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid wearer when the hearing aid is set to the ‘T’ setting. T-coils (telecoils) are tiny additions to hearing aids, which enable the hearing aid to serve as a customized, wireless loudspeaker for the wearer. The listener receives a clear signal without any background noise.
