PLYMOUTH — For the first time ever in Plymouth, a house of workshop has now been looped! A hearing loop is installed in Congregation Beth Jacob. A hearing loop (sometimes called an audio induction loop) is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid or cochlear implant when it is set to ‘T’ (Telecoil) setting. Congregation Beth Jacob’s hearing loop can be used both upstairs and downstairs in its facility, so one loops serves both floors.

Loops installed to the IEC 60118-4 standard (International Electrotechnical Commission) reliably deliver the cleanest sound to people with hearing loss—even to those with severe to profound hearing loss. Hearing loops are becoming the foundation for hearing-friendly, inclusive communities throughout the United States.
