Whether you live in New York City or will be planning a trip to the Big Apple to see some Broadway shows, consider attending one with a hearing loop. A hearing loop allows people with hearing loss to get direct audio input of the sound to their hearing aid or cochlear implant. Read more about hearing loops and how this technology can bring you back into the world of sound and enjoying life.
In honor of the 35th anniversary of the Hearing Loss Association of America, the HLAA - NYC chapter, in association with The Nederlander Organization, has arranged for special discount tickets f
Two Nederlander theaters recently installed highly sophisticated hearing loop systems in order to entice theater fans with hearing aids/cochlear implants with t-coils not only to see their shows, but to hear them as well. If you go - and you should, they're both great shows - all you'll need to do to experience the loop is to switch to t-coil. That's it - no asking for infrared devices. No handing over your driver's license. Just high-quality Broadway sound delivered directly to your hearing aids/cochlear implants at the flip of your t-coil switch!
