FAQ

What is an FM hearing system?

An FM hearing system is an assistive listening device designed to improve the hearing experience for hearing aid wearers, particularly in challenging environments. FM systems pick up speech closer to its source, reducing unwanted noise and improving the signal-to-noise ratio, making speech easier to understand. They can also connect directly to sound sources like televisions to transmit a clear signal to hearing aids.

  • Personal FM Amplification: A body-worn device that uses an FM wireless microphone to pick up the speaker’s voice, converts it into an electromagnetic wave, and sends it to the listener’s receiver. The sound is then amplified and clarified before being played through the hearing aids.
  • Sound-Field FM Amplification: A device placed near a sound source, such as a table in a meeting room, to focus on specific sounds. The microphone sends the information via electromagnetic waves to the listener’s receiver, where it is converted and enhanced for clarity.

FM hearing systems use frequency modulation (FM) similar to traditional radios. They consist of two parts: a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter detects changes in frequency and sends these to the receiver, which emits sound corresponding to the received voltage.

  • Types of Receivers: Depending on the hearing device, receivers may use a neck loop or a smaller “shoe” device with direct audio input.
  • Types of Transmitters: Transmitters vary by manufacturer but generally include a microphone and external audio input for connection to TVs, radios, MP3 players, and mobile phones. Some also support Bluetooth for wireless connections.

Experts agree that anyone with hearing loss can benefit from an FM system, whether it’s a Personal FM Amplification system or a Sound-Field Amplification system. Even those who rarely leave home can use an FM device to stream sound directly to their hearing aids, dramatically improving speech understanding in complex listening environments. FM systems are especially useful in social or business settings, like busy meetings, providing wearers with more confidence in conversations.

FM hearing systems offer significant benefits for individuals with hearing loss by improving listening in noisy environments. Even advanced hearing aids can struggle with background noise, but FM systems enhance the signal-to-noise ratio, making speech easier to understand. While top-tier hearing aids improve the SNR by about 5dB, FM systems provide a more substantial improvement of 15dB, resulting in clearer, more distinct sound.
