In-Home Home Hearing Loop Installation for Beginner’s

More from Hearing Healthcare of Virginia online at

Congratulations! In order to hear your favorite TV programs without aggravating the family, you went out and purchased a hearing loop. Deciding on which model to buy may not have been easy, but setting up your hearing loop shouldn’t be hard. Luckily, a specialist isn’t necessary to install a home hearing loop, as the steps are rather straightforward.

Project preparation. Hearing loop systems have four principal parts – the sound source (your telephone or TV), the wire loop, the amplifier and your hearing aid. Before jumping into your project, be sure to have all the equipment you may need to put in your hearing loop. Dependant upon the specifics of the system you’re installing, a few extra tools, such as a screwdriver and an industrial staple gun, might make your installation much easier.

The work involved. The first step is to choose a location for your amplifier close to your TV set –either sitting on a shelf or affixing it to a cabinet with the tape or fasteners provided in your kit. The second step is to plug your amplifier into a power outlet and to connect your amplifier’s input jack to the audio output jack of your TV set. The final step is to position the wire loop along either the ceiling or floor edges and secure it in place with tacks or staples.And that’s really all there is to it!

Lastly, follow the hearing loop system manufacturer’s directions to adjust the volume and any additional settings your system might have. The volume controls can be located on the amplifier itself or on a separate device or remote depending on the home hearing loop’s design.

Caution. Don’t put your loop system or any electronic equipment near water, such as around an aquarium, a sink or a flower vase that could possibly be knocked over. Always keep the components of your hearing loop dry, even when cleaning. Finally, avoid installing the hearing loop system near a heat source such as a stove, space heater or fireplace or other heat-generating equipment. To prevent overheating your device, place it in a location that allows sufficient air flow instead of inside a closed cabinet.
