Assistive Listening Devices

Assistive listening devices help amplify the sounds you want to hear, especially in difficult listening situations such as in the presence of background noise or on the telephone. They can be used alongside or in place of hearing aids depending on the severity of the listener’s difficulty. Examples of ALDs include amplified telephones, Bluetooth technology, FM systems, and induction loop accessories.
If hearing aids are not enough or you feel you are not ready for hearing aids, ALDs may be the best option for you.
Alerting devices can also help people whose hearing loss prevents them from hearing important sounds such as alarm clocks, fire alarms, telephones, door bells, or baby monitors. If you are concerned about missing important sounds when not wearing your hearing aids, please ask how alerting devices can give you that peace of mind.
