Thank you for both your wonderful website (http://hearinglosshelp.com ) for the Univox 2A loop system I just installed. I found the system by “googling” for a loop system. Your website is very user friendly and I felt that I could trust the content.
I have a moderate to severe hearing loss. It didn’t become moderate to severe until about 5 years ago. Up until then I was able to enjoy television much like normal hearing people, only missing a little bit here and there. As anyone with my level of hearing loss knows, it became a whole different story with moderate to severe loss.
I invested in an expensive new Bose home stereo with the hopes that the good sound quality would enable me to hear my television. I can tell the sound quality is good, but I still cannot make out speech because the speaker is about 12 feet away.
I think I am like a lot of hearing impaired individuals in that I have begun to feel hopeless, like there is simply no way I will hear things like TV “normally” ever again.
I read the reviews of other users of the Univox 2A, but I was still a little apprehensive. Well, I just hooked it up and I am blown away! Sound is piping through my hearing aid (with the t-coil program on) and I can hear EVERY WORD, even the commercials, which previously were impossible! I simply cannot believe how good it sounds.
I am already a lot less resentful of my hearing loss. This solution works perfectly, allows me to hear and to keep the TV at a comfortable volume for others, it’s totally hassle free, all I do is put my aid on t-coil and it works.
Thank you so much this gift of hearing that I never thought I would have, even in today’s age of technology innovations. It has far exceeded what I had hoped for. This is truly one of the happiest moments I have had in many years. Hallelujah.
It’s always nice to get letters that reinforce just how wonderfully clear the sound is when using the t-coils on your hearing aids coupled with loop systems. I have enjoyed this beautiful, clear sound for some time, as I looped my house quite a while ago. If you want to learn more about these wonderful loop systems, read the article “Loop Systems—the Best-Kept Secret in Town!“. The Cortacta HLD3 loop amplifier is truly a great little home loop amplifier—and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg either!
