Angullia Mosque

Featured Project

Angullia Mosque, located in Little India is one of the oldest mosque in Singapore. It was built in 1890 by the late merchant and philanthropist Mohammad Salleh Eusoff Angullia. It was officially opened on 14th of February 2020. After upgraded, the mosque now will be able to accommodate 2,500 worshippers up from 1,500 previously.


The Listening Lab is honoured to be the installer for induction loop system for this mosque. The induction loop systems are located at the following areas:

  • L1 Information Counter
  • L2 Prayer Hall
  • L3 Ladies Prayer Hall

Masjid Angullia, yang terletak di Little India adalah salah satu masjid tertua di Singapura. Masjid ini dibina pada tahun 1890 oleh mendiang saudagar dan dermawan Mohammad Salleh Eusoff Angullia. Ia dibuka secara rasmi pada 14 Februari 2020. Selepas dinaik taraf, masjid ini kini mampu menampung 2,500 jemaah berbanding 1,500 jemaah sebelum ini.

NUS University Cultural Centre (UCC)

Featured Project

The Listening Lab’s Hearing Enhancement division very proud to be awarded the contract to build and implement a hearing enhancement system for the University Cultural Centre (UCC) of the National University of Singapore.

Located at 50 Kent Ridge Crescent, the UCC is a focal point for the University and its diverse cultural life and influences. The UCC has hosted Nobel laureates, foreign dignitaries as well as performances by Singaporean and international artistes. The UCC’s emphasis on building accessibility is what also makes the awarding of this tender to The Listening Lab very special to us.

The UCC renovation in 2018 provided a unique challenge to our team. It is a medium sized venue and has a hall for 1700 seats and a theatre for 455 seats and required hearing enhancement systems to be built in.


New Flooring of UCC: Wood planks. Our approach was to implement Flat Copper Tape to provide the electromagnetic field as part of the Hearing Enhancement Solution.

Type of loop: Cancellation Perimeter Loop

The seating arrangement is not in a straight line. Moreover, the copper tape is embedded below the floor finishing, this could result in the chair installer bolting their seats onto the copper tape.

Challenges: The loop is very near to the stage, this could result in an “over spill” effect, which not only distorts signals but also could distort output from electrical musical instruments such as electric guitars or bass guitars.

Lots of coordination had to be done to make to ensure that during the chair installation, there is no damage to the copper tape that we installed.

Our solution involved installing a cancellation loop was installed before the perimeter loop, thereby reducing background noise was tremendously, avoiding the “overspill effect” mentioned above.


Type of flooring: Carpet – Flat Copper Tape

Type of Loop: Cancellation Perimeter Loop


1. The cancellation perimeter loop is required to be installed onto retractable seating chairs. This can often result in damage to the loop when the chairs are retracted.

2. The installation of carpets might damage the copper tape as the carpet required to be cut after the installation process of the loop.

3. The installation of other fittings onto the retractable platform might also damage the copper tape as the copper tape was covered by the carpets, and therefore not visible to other contractors.

4. The copper tapes are installed on the different platforms therefore this could result in the field strength to be uneven.


After an in-depth review, we provided this solution:

1. Holes to be drilled on the platform to connect all the copper tapes to the connecting cables below.

2. Detailed communication was conducted between us and the carpet supplier and warning tapes were placed on top of the copper tape before the carpet installation to ensure that the tape is not damaged.

3. Our team coordinated between the various vendors of UCC to ensure that anything mounted in the venue where our copper tapes were present, ensuring that other fittings did not damage our loop fittings.

4. Once the retractable chair drawing is received we had designed and repeated simulations for the cancellation loop to ensure that the field strength coverage is within the IEC 60118-4:2006. Our efforts were successful.

Our projects were successfully implemented and we're proud to have surpassed the IEC 60118-4: 2006 standards.

Madame Tussauds Singapore

Featured Project

Madame Tussauds Singapore is a world famous Wax museum and tourist attraction at the Imbiah Lookout of Sentosa Island in Singapore. It officially opened on 25 October 2014 as the seventh Asian branch of the Madame Tussauds chain of wax attractions worldwide. Madame Tussauds Singapore is the only one in Asia that offers The Marvel 4D cinema experience.

The Listening Lab was awarded this project in Oct 2017 after its proposal to use a FM solution was accepted.  The project was commissioned in Jan 2018.

The FM transmitter was set up to interface with the Movie server where it produced a balanced signal in output. However as the FM transmitter requires an unbalanced input, an adapter was needed to convert the signal from balanced to unbalanced as shown in the photo below.

The hearing aid user will require to wear the FM receiver and neckloop around the neck. The neckloop will generate a magnetic field to communicate with the telecoil in the hearing aids, thereby allowing the user to hear directly from the audio source without surrounding interference
