Congrats on your hearing loop purchase and getting started on the road to a more pleasurable hearing experience for you and your family. Choosing which system to purchase may not have been simple, however setting up your hearing loop won’t be difficult. You will NOT need to hire a specialist to set up your system if you adhere to these straightforward, general steps.

Organizing your workspace. Loop systems have 4 principal parts – the sound source (your telephone or TV), the wire loop, the amplifier and your hearing aid or sound receiver. As with any home project, it’s a smart idea to make sure you have all the correct equipment and tools available before you start installing your new loop. Depending on your particular home hearing loop system, some extra tools and equipment would be good to keep nearby, such as a screwdriver or a staple gun.

The basic steps. The first step is attaching your amplifier near your television set with the screws that were included with your loop or just position it next to your television.Second, plug in the power cable of the adapter into an outlet and the free cable into the audio output jack your television. The third and final step is to place the wire loop along either the edge of the ceiling or along the edges of the floor and secure it in place with tacks or staples.Easy as that. Now all you need to do is set up the volume controls as explained by the manufacturer. Depending on your hearing loop system, the volume is manipulated via either the amplifier itself or a separate control panel.

Safety advice. Never position any electronic equipment in or near water, or in areas where moisture may accumulate. Always use a clean, dry cloth to clean the components of your new hearing loop system. Finally, keep the device away from heat sources, such as a fireplace, stove or heater. Be sure your loop system is placed in an area with plenty of ventilation to avoid overheating it.
