Induction Hearing Loop Systems near Phoenix

According to the Arizona Commission of the Deaf and the Hard of Hearing (ACDHH), there are more than 700,000 people who are hard of hearing living in Arizona. Since 2006, the Adult Loss of Hearing Association (ALOHA) has pushed the agenda for public venues, such as churches, theaters, auditoriums, etc. to install hearing loops to increase accessibility for the large number of Arizonans who are living with hearing loss.

Hearing loops are copper wires that surround a room or venue, usually installed in the floor. The wires are connected to the sound system in the room and transmit sound through electromagnetic waves to your hearing aid’s telecoil (T-coil). The hearing loop system delivers crisp, clear sound to your ears, without the need for any other assisted listening devices; it is as simple as switching your hearing aid’s programming to T-coil. The Cronkite News of Tucson reported that a “2007 state law requires audiologists in Arizona to tell patients purchasing hearing aids about the telecoil option that makes looping possible.”

Below is a selection of venues in and around Phoenix that are fitted with a hearing loop (for a listing of houses of worship, visit: Though a lot of movie theaters and performance venues in the Phoenix area offer assisted listening devices (infrared, neck loops, etc.), there are not many arts, culture, and entertainment venues that offer hearing loops.
