How to Hear Better While Watching Television
- Do you sometimes have trouble following dialogue in television programs?
- Do you feel that sound effects in TV programming have been given too much weight recently?
- Does it seem that the background music on TV is louder than it used to be?
Can Technology Help?
These are all symptoms of mild-to-moderate hearing loss. While hearing aids may be the best solution for those who have a really hard time hearing in almost every situation, they may not be right for you.
Personal Hearing Headsets to the Rescue
For those who have mild-to-moderate hearing loss the Wear & Hear line of personal hearing devices provide a completely personalized hearing experience. Important ambient sounds, peoples’ voices, and sounds from all audio sources are amplified, enhanced and adapted to suit individual hearing preferences.
Advanced technology based on input from four separate microphones integrated into a neck loop style Bluetooth headset cancels out distracting noise while amplifying important sounds. The result: improved intelligibility of speech, even in television programs with loud background music and/or sound effects.
Unique Technology Keeps You Alert to Your Surroundings
All Wear & Hear headsets include our unique ListenThrough™ technology, which facilitates auditory environment awareness while you are listening to audio content. It suppresses ambient noise while allowing important sounds, such as the doorbell or your partner’s voice, to pass through to your ears even as you watch television.
If you happen to receive a phone call while watching television, accepting the phone call will mute the audio stream from the TV set to your ears. The TV audio will automatically un-mute when the call ends.
Companion App Provides Additional Functionality
A free app, available for iPhone and Android, allows you to personalize the headset using an integrated hearing assessment. The results of the assessment are automatically applied to the headset and used as a baseline for all your hearing through the headset: live conversations, audio play (including television), mobile phone calls, and important ambient sounds like live music and sounds in nature.
In noisy settings, use the app to set the level of background noise reduction. Also, customize what you hear in real time by selecting the Best Sound Point. Simply tap on different squares in the app’s grid until you achieve the best combination of frequency and amplitude for your current situation.
Best All-Around TV Watching Experience
For those looking for the optimum television watching experience we suggest adding the HearLink™ assistive listening transmitter. HearLink is a Bluetooth® transmitter that connects to the analog sound output found on most standard television sets and other audio devices. It sends the audio signal directly to the paired BeHear® headset, thus eliminating ambient noises, room reverberation, and other types of sound interference which hamper intelligibility of speech and music appreciation.
