The Listen Technologies LA-430 Intelligent Earphone Neck Loop Lanyard is an integrated neck loop that works with any of the company's iDSP receivers and any of their earphones (available separately) and uses a DSP loop driver to deliver an improved listening experience for people who have hearing aids and cochlear implants with telecoils. It is capable of providing the proper field strength and a flat frequency response from the neck to the listening plane of the hearing aid—in accordance with IEC60118-4 standards. An automatic gain control circuit with a dynamic range of 36 dB optimizes speech and provides clear, intelligible audio.
The LA-430 plugs into an iDSP receiver and easily slips over the head to be worn around the neck like a lanyard; a quick release ensures immediate removal if necessary. The 3.5mm earphone jack on one side provides a connection to Listen's universal earphones or a similar pair of earbuds. The LA-430 enables venues to meet legislative requirements for assistive listening and deliver an enjoyable listening experience in places where it's difficult to hear, such as theaters, lecture halls, concert venues, and houses of worship.
