Recently we installed a hearing loop at Congregation B’nai B’rith in both our sanctuary and social hall. With this technology in place, our hard-of-hearing congregants are now able to hear and understand almost every spoken and sung word. Those congregants who previously sat in frustration with hands cupped around their ears or had to fiddle with our previous ALS headsets now sit wherever they want with ease and dignity. I am thanked regularly for bringing in this technology to our building. It has tremendously changed their experience in our space.

We have had comments from our members like: ‘Wow, now you can really hear the word of God!’ and, ‘What a change! I can hear the Sermon now.

Thank you for all your help and patience. You might just have the best customer service of any company I have worked with. You continually went above and beyond. I would recommend OTOjOY to anyone.

It has been our utmost pleasure to have discovered and worked with OTOjOY. Their work has significantly improved resident satisfaction and particularly, opened up a whole new world for our hearing impaired residents. Thomas Kaufmann's understanding and dedication in this field has allowed our residents to intermingle with those that hear clearly while watching movies, listening to microphone presentations, and participating in activities, that in the past could never be managed to an acceptable level for all to enjoy. OTOjOY have demonstrated that they can deliver a project from start to finish with positive, impactful and appreciated results.

Thomas Kaufmann, Founder of OTOjOY, and Eric Deveau hearing professional of Miracle-Ear, gave a presentation to our residents and did a great job explaining the purpose and usage of the hearing loop. They took time to sit down one-on-one with the residents to activate their t-coils in all hearing aids that have this feature. The residents were then able to instantly use the hearing loop. When they heard the sound through the loop for the first time, they were delighted! It is sad to see people not being able to enjoy a film or live presentation in our activity room simply because they cannot distinguish the words being said. The hearing loop makes all the difference!
