Dear Colleagues,

Our Educational Communications (EdComm) department is currently using the
Sennheiser A200 and the Sennheiser IS410 headsets (connecting to SI 30
modulators and emitters) for classrooms seating over 50 and containing a
public address system. These systems were chosen in the early 2000’s as the
easiest to install and use (at the time). We have not looked at any
competing product to these headsets in at least 8 years.

We’d very much like to hear if you have information regarding contemporary
assisted listening systems. What do you like? What don’t you like? What
have you tried? Did it work? Are the ones that work complimentary to the
portable units that your office hands out?

We’ll be installing a system in August in our Learning Studio. We're fine
with continuing to use the Sennheisers but we are interested if there’s a
better product. We are most interested in replacing the older Sennheiser
headsets. If you're aware of some kind of modulator/emitter than makes more
sense, please let us know as well.

FYI - The Services for Students with Disabilities office (SSD) currently
has several Phonak Roger MyLink Receivers and Roger Inspiro Transmitters to
loan out to students.

Many thanks,

*Nazely Kurkjian*
