The AT-216 system functions as a remote microphone for the user, overcoming the greatest listening problems for those with impaired hearing: high levels of background noise, reverberation effects, and distance between the speaker and listener.
In addition to hearing aids, the user wears the personal receiver and neck-loop. The PR-216 personal receiver picks up the voice of the person wearing the M-216 transmitter, and the neck-loop then retransmits it to hearing aids with a T switch (telecoil pick-up) for close-up sound. If hearing aids are not used, the receiver may also be used with headphones in place of the neck-loop. Now the person with impaired hearing has a direct link to the speaker at greater distances for improved listening, clarity, and better understanding.
