WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind (WLFI) - Elliott Hall of Music has installed a hearing loop system that will make it easier for those who are hard of hearing to hear in the venue.
The hearing loop is a special type of audio system made for people with hearing loss. It generates a wireless signal to be picked up by hearing aids or loop listener devices. The loop makes it possible to be anywhere in the theater and have a consistent sound no matter where you're sitting. The Elliott Hall system is considered to be one of the largest fully looped systems in the world.
Elliott Hall of Music Technical Coordinator of Audio and Design, Dallas Johnson, spoke very highly of the loop installation. He shared how it is the Hall of Music's mission to provide an excellent theater experience for all.
"A lot of our customers that comes to events here don't have perfect hearing. It's just kind of about making the experience enjoyable for all of our patrons. That's definitetly our goal."
