Description

BeHear NOW 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 NOW 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

BeHer NOW 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

The headset itself includes a variety of controls to manage its hearing functions, which work “out of the box” for four different hearing profiles:

  • Indoor
  • Outdoor
  • Crowd
  • Live Music

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
  • Various device settings, including default mode behavior, vibration alerts, and more

The W&H BeHear application can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store or Apple Store.

1 review for BeHear® NOW

  1. Neil Nedrow

    In the past, I’ve had trouble understanding people in phone conversations. But BeHear Now has completely illuminated that problem. And everyone has been able to hear me clearly. This is something I highly value. It works excellently. I also find this to greatly help with TV listening. I use the transmitter with headphones and the comprehension is quite good.Neil Nedrow - BeHear NOW Customer
