Is it possible for others to hear the TV while I am using my BeHear headset?

This depends on how you are using your BeHear ACCESS, and your specific TV.

  • If you are using BeHear in Personal Hearing mode to amplify nearby important sounds, others will be able to hear the TV as well.
  • If you are using BeHear as a Bluetooth receiver, paired with your television, others will probably not be able to hear the TV. However, if your television (or set top box) supports simultaneous sound output to optic/RCA/3.5mm and the TV speakers, we have a recommendation for a workaround (see below).

If your television doesn’t support Bluetooth, or if it doesn’t support dual audio output when a Bluetooth device is connected, we recommend using a Bluetooth transmitter, such as our HearLink PLUS, to enable the television audio to be transmitted to both your BeHear headset and the TV speakers.

In any event, you should check your television manual for information about Bluetooth connections and dual audio output.
