CLASSROOM AMPLIFICATION
Learn more
Soundfield systems are designed to overcome the problems of background noise and distance from the teacher. They provide an even, consistent signal throughout the classroom, creating an improved signal to noise ratio with the teacher's voice clearly audible and intelligible above background noise. These benefit all students with a hearing loss, specific auditory and other special needs. A Soundfield functions best in learning spaces with favourable acoustic qualities.
PERSONAL FM UNITS
Learn more
Personal FM units provide an enhanced signal to noise ratio with the teacher's voice clearly audible and intelligible above background noise. These units consist of a transmitter worn by the teacher and a receiver with headphones worn by the student. PLEASE NOTE: Headphones are not supplied with the loan for health reasons.
