Description

BeHear ACCESS enhances live hearingBeHear® ACCESS is a stylish hearing amplifier for people who need enhanced hearing in specific situations. It looks (and functions) like a typical Bluetooth® stereo headset but also provides enhancement for all-around hearing (live conversations, mobile phone calls, music play, ambient hearing), as well as assistive listening functionality. A dedicated free smartphone app allows wearers to fine-tune sound in real-time, and built-in Telecoil receivers ensure best possible hearing in locales equipped with hearing loop technology.

BeHear ACCESS enhances hearing of television dialogueBeHear ACCESS utilizes voice processing technologies developed by Alango Technologies, Ltd. over the past two decades, such as:

  • ListenThrough – Passing through important ambient sounds during music playback
  • EasyListen – slowing down speech dynamically during phone conversations
  • Personal Sound Amplifier – providing dynamic, compressed amplification of ambient sounds
  • Hearing enhancement functions – including noise reduction, echo cancellation, and more

The BeHear ACCESS assistive hearing headset belongs to a new category of sound enhancement products. It combines the functionality of three existing devices into one:

  • Bluetooth stereo headset for wireless mobile phone calls and media playback
  • Assistive hearing device for enhanced intelligibility of speech and other important sounds
  • Digital hearing aid for personalized sound amplification across a wide sound spectrum

Situational Hearing Enhancement:
When You Need It

BeHear ACCESS enhances hearing in mobile calls

BeHear ACCESS can enhance hearing for those with normal hearing, as well as people with mild to moderate hearing loss. This is true for all situations:

  • In-person conversations
  • Mobile phone conversations
  • Music/audio streaming
  • Television viewing
  • Movies, theater and concert performances
  • Outdoors, in nature

Customizable for Your Hearing Capabilities and Preferences

These profiles can be modified in real-time, based on the current sound environment and the wearer’s preferences, using the W&H BeHear mobile application. The application also includes:

A self-administered personal hearing assessment for automatic adjustment of the sound in each of the operational modes: ambient hearing, phone calls, and audio play

  • Direct access to the video tutorials library
  • An option to set the balance between left and right ears
  • Assistive listening functions for phone calls and media playback
