Distance and noise are two factors that create difficult listening conditions. Assistive Listening Systems can minimize the impact of these two factors. These systems combine a transmitter placed near the desired sounds, which is wirelessly linked to a small receiver that you wear. This receiver, in turn, delivers those sounds directly into the amplification device in your ear(s).
 
The New Jersey Division of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing operates an Assistive Listening Device Loan Program. This program enables people with hearing loss, as well as community organizations, to borrow the devices on a trial basis from county libraries. Two types of systems are available: Personal FM Systems for use up to 150 feet, and Wide Area FM Systems for use in larger spaces. Both systems are
portable and come with simple instructions. They readily connect to all types of hearing aids and cochlear implants, and also work with ear-buds or lightweight headsets.
