Both BeHear NOW and BeHear ACCESS:

  • look and function like a Bluetooth® stereo headset
  • include fully customizable hearing amplification and noise reduction for live conversations, mobile phone calls, music play, and ambient sounds
  • clarify speech (and if needed during mobile phone calls, slow it down!)
  • enhance music

In addition, BeHear ACCESS:

  • includes two telecoil receivers to deliver optimal sound in locations outfitted with induction loop technology.
  • has large, tactile buttons for easier operation (especially if dexterity is an issue).
  • comes with a magnetized charging cradle, as opposed to a direct USB cable which attaches to the neckband (also a usability issue).
  • includes sound directionality with three options: narrow, wide, and omni.*
  • allows users to reduce the perceived echo effect of their own voice.*
  • provides support for unilateral hearing (both CROS and BiCROS).*
  • is more expensive.

* Starting with units sold in June 2021
