What is the difference between BeHear NOW and BeHear ACCESS?

While both products look and function like a Bluetooth® stereo headset, and also include fully customizable hearing amplification and noise reduction for live conversations, mobile phone calls, music play, and ambient sounds, AND clarify speech (and if needed during mobile phone calls, slow it down!), AND enhance music, there are four basic differences.

As opposed to BeHear NOW, BeHear ACCESS:

  1. includes two telecoil receivers to deliver optimal sound in locations outfitted with induction loop technology.
  2. has large, tactile buttons for easier operation (especially if dexterity is an issue).
  3. comes with a magnetized charging cradle, as opposed to a direct USB cable which attaches to the neckband (also a usability issue).
  4. is more expensive.
