Assistive Listening Devices
Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs) are hearing technologies that are designed to support hearing in various environments. ALDs are typically compatible with hearing aids and offer a great supplement to the hearing support they provide. Common ALDs include:
One of the most common types of ALDs, hearing loops are specifically intended to make public spaces more accessible for people with hearing challenges. Hearing loop systems can be found in various public spaces like banks, airports, auditoriums, etc. Soundwaves coming from an audio source like a microphone or intercom create a current that establishes a magnetic field to which hearing aids can connect. By enabling the telecoil feature on one’s hearing aid, the device can then directly receive this sound and adjust it in ways that meet the wearer's needs.
ALDs for TV
Watching TV, an everyday activity, can be difficult with hearing loss. There are ALDs that are designed to support people watching TV with greater ease. This includes the neckloop system which uses telecoil technology to deliver sound from the TV to your hearing aids. A loop is worn around your neck which connects to your hearing aid through magnetic induction. This allows sound to directly feed into your hearing aids which can then be adjusted to your specific hearing prescription.
Another type of ALD is an amplified phone. This offers easily adjustable settings, increased volume options, audio-to-text transcription, and more.
Our experts can recommend ALDs that can easily integrate into your daily life and support your hearing health.Request an Appointment

I had been able to obtain hearing aids from other resources. But with a serious case of tinnitus and a loss of hearing high pitched sounds, I decided to try and enhance my quality of life by seeking a stronger solution to those problems. Jeff has absolutely, and professionally, helped with those ailments. His treatment and relationship with me is professional yet "old school" caring and courteous. Any problem is quickly taken care of. While there is no cure for tinnitus I feel Jeff has given me the best solution for moving forward with minimum discomfort. I can now enjoy my grandkids even more. I highly recommend Jeff and the Glendora Advanced Hearing Aid Center.

After visiting Advanced Hearing Aid Center and meeting with Jeff Kim, I knew I was dealing with a true professional. He takes his position very seriously, is current with technology and understands all the products available in the market. He’s a sommelier in the hearing business if you will and pairs your hearing needs with the right hearing aids. Extremely impressed with every interaction with Jeff and would recommend Advanced Hearing Aid Center in Glendora to anyone that requires assistance with any hearing issues.

This is an excellent hearing aid center - the office is friendly and professional. I had the pleasure of seeing Jeff Kim HIS at the Advanced Hearing Aid Center, and he is great! Both of my hearing aids (ReSound LiNX Quattro) went through the tests and he explained everything that was going on. I felt at ease and I knew I was in good hands. If you are thinking about getting your hearing aids test or believe you are suffering from hearing loss, you should definitely give Jeff Kim a call. 👂🏼 #AdvancedHAC #CheckYourHearing #HearWellStayVital #ReSound

I had contacted Jeff in need of some hearing aid maintenance and hearing tests performed as it was years since seeing an audiologist. Jeff was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and accommodating with all of my needs. It is hard nowadays to find an audiologist who is up to date on all there is to know and that has multiple resources under their belt, I was extremely satisfied with my visit that Jeff and Advanced Hearing Glendora will now be my go to spot for all audiology and hearing aid needs!

While searching for a hearing aid specialist I chose Advanced Hearing Aid Center do to fact they didn't have a 2 week waiting list. Jeff has got to be the greatest person I have ever dealt with in the medical care profession. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable in his field, he takes his time and really makes you feel that your hearing is as important to him as it is to you. If you need hearing aids Jeff is the one to see!

I have been going to Advance Hearing Aid Center in Glendora for several years. I have found Jeff to be very helpful in getting the right type of hearing aid when I needed my old one replaced. He explained in detail how the new one worked compared to the old one. I have been impressed by his level of service. I highly recommend him. Note: This is Richard Legarra and I don't know why it comes up with my wife's name. I cannot change it.

My husband has been a patient of Dr. Kim's for over a year now and we have the highest regard for Dr. Kim and the Advanced Hearing Aid Center. He has always treated my husband with great care and compassion and has always guided us in the right area where my husband's hearing is concerned. We have been to other hearing centers in the past and were not satisfied. We highly recommend Dr Kim - Advance Hearing Aid Center
