PRLog - Apr. 3, 2012 - WEST CALDWELL, N.J. -- Residents and guests of Crane’s Mill are hearing more clearly thanks to a discreet system known as the Hearing Loop. Installed in Hinman Hall, the system helps the hearing-impaired by transmitting the sound from the microphone directly into a person’s hearing aid. With the simple flip of a switch, audience members with a Telecoil-equipped hearing aid (or a pair of specially-designed headphones) have access to the system.

The Hearing Loop system works directly with the person’s Telecoil, or T-coil, by lessening room noise and amplifying sound coming through the PA system. The sound level is customized to the individual to address each person’s own level of hearing loss.
The new system had its audience debut on Friday, March 30th at Executive Director Craig Karczmer’s fireside chat—a monthly, interactive update presented to the community’s residents. Reviews were universally positive as attendees noted: “it’s like the presenter is speaking directly into your ear.”
Hinman Hall plays host to an array of programs including seminars, speeches, theatrical and musical performances, all of which will be enhanced and enjoyed like never before thanks to the Hearing Loop.
