Eden Prairie, Minn—Williams Sound LLC has partnered with European assistive listening system manufacturer, Humantechnik GmbH, to introduce audio induction loop systems into Williams Sound’s American product lineup.
“Williams Sound offered induction loop products many years ago, but the United States market gravitated towards FM and infrared technology solutions and hearing aids trended away from models offering telecoils that could be used with loop systems. With the resurgence of hearing aids fitted with telecoils and the joint efforts of the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) and the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) to promote loop technology, we feel the United States marketplace is once again receptive to induction loop products,” states Paul Ingebrigtsen, president of Williams Sound.
Franck-Olivier Fabry, vice president of sales, added, “We understand the importance of advancing and growing in this industry, and this partnership allows us to expand our product offering and provide consultants and systems integrators with the highest quality selection of wireless listening solutions.”
Williams Sound will be premiering several new induction loop product offerings at this year’s professional AV communications industry tradeshow, Infocomm International, June 13–15 in Las Vegas.
