Univox

At Hearing Health, we carry an assortment of useful assistive listening devices that are designed to make life easier for people living with hearing loss. We are committed to doing anything in our power to improve the livesof our clients who suffer from impaired hearing.

Univox is a company that specializes in designing and developing hearing loops. They designed the world’s first constant current loop amplifier in 1969, and haven’t looked back since. A hearing loop is a wire that surrounds a room and connects to a sound system. The sound from the system is transmitted electromagnetically through the wire, or loop. Hearing aids and cochlear implants have special receptors called telecoils that can pick up the sound from the loop and deliver it directly to someone’s ear.
