Neckloops and ear hooks let you hear music, audiobooks, phone calls or conversation listeners directly through your hearing aids or cochlear implants on the loop or ‘T’ setting.
When you connect the neckloop or ear hooks to an audio device - such as a conversation listener, smartphone or MP3 player - the sound is sent straight to your hearing aids or cochlear implants (when on the loop setting). This cuts out background noise, which can be particularly distracting for people with hearing loss.
Neckloops and ear hooks are useful in challenging listening environments, such as when you’re watching the TV and using the phone. They help you to focus on the sound you want to hear, without any interference.
You wear a neckloop around your neck like a necklace; or you hook the ear hooks over your ears next to your hearing aids. Neckloops and ear hooks both work in the same way - just choose the one you prefer and find easiest to use.
Some neckloops for hearing aid wearers are wired and plug into audio devices, like the iLoop+ neckloop. There are also wireless Bluetooth neckloops - such as the BTH1410 Listener neckloop - that allow you to connect to Bluetooth-compatible devices.
To enhance your hearing, neckloops and ear hooks are a must-have product for people with hearing aids or cochlear implants - at home, at work and when socialising. Check out the different options available below.
