If you have a hearing aid then you likely run into situations in public where aids are not as beneficial as you would hope if you do not have a little more technology attached. A telecoil is a device that can be attached to your device so that you will hear better in locations that use loop technology. Loop technology gives off sound as a magnetic signal that telecoils are able to pick up.

Imagine going to church, class, or a conference of some kind where you can hear everything that is said through the speaker system.
The benefit of using the telecoil with loop technology is also that you will not have the normal background noise that would normally be present to make it harder to hear. When the telecoil is in place the microphone on your hearing aid will actually be turned off and only the magnetic signal from the loop technology will come through not allowing in background noise.
Another time that loop technology is used is in your telephone. If you purchase a hearing aid compatible phone then it will help you to hear well. You can hook up your TV to these systems as well.
