" Induction looping technology turns sounds on for hearing impaired

Looping Technology


Disabled Resources Center, Inc., has become the first organization in Long Beach to become a hearing-friendly facility by installing the Induction looping system which allows individuals with hearing loss to hear clear sound directly from a microphone to their hearing aids without the use of a headset.

Those with hearing problems turn on a switch in the hearing aid, called a T-coil, and are able to use the system, and those without hearing issues don't notice any difference at all.


To look-up other cities to see if they are looped visit, Assistive Listening Device Locator's website at
