Both systems have their advantages, however the main concern for most people is can a hard of hearing person actually hear when using it, and in the case of the LA90 the answer is a resounding YES!

The LA90 is the most powerful desktop/Portable Loop System available, and due to some innovative design the user will receive exactly the sounds they want to hear without the problem of background noise, with the addition of the convenient telephone style handset, people without hearing aids can also communicate equally well.

The LA90 has been designed to target the business world with a sleek, stylish design which does not look out of place in any scenario, this design caught the eye of Apple, who now have LA90 systems in all its stores around the world to help their Hard of Hearing customers.

The LA90 is so simple to use, it can be left plugged into mains ensuring it is always charged and ready to use. The LA90 solves the problems around product training & knowledge retention (passing on how to use).
