What Are Assistive Listening Devices?

Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs) are innovative tools designed to enhance the listening experience for individuals with hearing impairments. Whether you're in a crowded restaurant, attending a lecture, or watching TV at home, ALDs can help you hear more clearly by reducing background noise and amplifying important sounds.
