Assistive listening devices (ALDs) refer to various types of amplification equipment designed to improve communication for persons with hearing loss in specific listening situations. They may be used in addition to or in place of hearing aids.
Some examples of ALDs:
- Personal Sound Amplifiers
- Amplified Phones (Click here for more information)
- TV devices
- Alarm Clocks, and door chimes
Wireless technology enables direct communication between Bluetooth-compatible hearing aids and external devices such as cell phones, computers, TV and entertainment devices and remote microphones. A remote microphone worn by a speaker transmits their voice directly to the listener’s hearing aids, allowing the speaker to be heard more easily in challenging listening environments.
Baycrest Hearing Services offers a variety of ALDs and Bluetooth accessories. Our audiologists can help you select the ones that will work best for you and instruct you on how to use them.
