Assistive Hearing: 5 Benefits of Implementing Wi-Fi Assisted Listening Systems

Can the people in your church hear what you are preaching? You might consider implementing assistive hearing technology.

 The best churches are the ones that have members of all different ages, races, and genders. A church should foster the ability to bring together people from different cultures with the same religious values.

However, some churches may forget that their audience may need special reinforcement, such as sound. Consider implementing assistive hearing solutions into your house of worship for members who have trouble hearing. For folks with hearing aids, CSAV now offers assistive listening devices that will integrate with their iPhone/smartphone into their existing hearing aids seamlessly. 

How Does It Work?

Assistive hearing solutions are extremely easy to use, and you probably already have half of the technology without even realizing it!

Folks with hearing aids can hear the church’s sound through their hearing aids. However, if the person does not have a smartphone, the system still has FM transmitters, so everyone is covered, which is the best of both worlds (FM and wi-fi.)

“The new dual frequency systems with wi-fi are very slick. Most people have smartphones, so they use wi-fi and the free app. For the few that have older phones, they can use an FM headset” -Jonathan Dolan, CSAV Design Consultant 

The Benefits of Assistive Hearing

Wi-fi assisted listening systems offer several advantages over traditional assistive listening systems:

 1. Convenience: Users can access the audio stream directly on their smartphones or tablets, eliminating the need for separate receivers.

2. Cost-Effective: Venues can leverage their existing wi-fi infrastructure, reducing the need for additional equipment and installation costs.

 3. Scalability: Wi-fi systems can easily accommodate many listeners without limitations.

 4. Accessibility: Users can download the app and access the audio stream in advance, ensuring a seamless experience upon arrival.

 5. Audio Quality: Wi-fi systems can transmit high-fidelity audio, providing a clear and intelligible listening experience.
