Benefit from hearing clearly in public spaces wherever you see the universal hearing loop sign.

Today, many public venues such as cinemas, theatres, places of worship and museums have hearing loop systems installed. It means you can stream sound directly into your hearing aids for a quality listening experience – whether for entertainment or educational purposes.

The signal transmitted from a hearing loop system is picked up via a small wire component called a telecoil.

Some hearing aids are already fitted with a telecoil, but some are not. You can access sound from a teleloop system either way by following the guidance on this page.

Want to know whether or not your hearing aids are already fitted with a telecoil? Contact your hearing care professional who should be able to advise you.

For hearing aids with a telecoil

If you have hearing aids with a telecoil, then simply switch on the telecoil programme to start receiving sound.


For hearing aids without a telecoil

If you have hearing aids without a telecoil then you can still access the wireless sound from a hearing loop system.

You will just need the help of an additional device - either EduMic* or Streamer Pro* - depending on whether or not your hearing aids have Bluetooth® technology.

*Oticon EduMic and Oticon Streamer Pro are additional accessories available for purchase and are not part of the hearing aid package.

If your hearing aids come with Bluetooth technology, then you can access sound from a hearing loop system using EduMic.

EduMic is fitted with a telecoil which receives the sound from the hearing loop system and then streams quality sound directly into your ears through your hearing aids.

Once EduMic is paired with your hearing aids:

1. To access hearing loop sound, turn off EduMic and then press and hold down the button on the device for ten seconds, until the status indicator turns magenta.

2. To mute the audio stream, press the button briefly. Press again to unmute.

3. To stop listening to the hearing loop audio, press the button for two seconds until the status indicator turns off.
