Why Should I Use the TV Headset Listener?
The Amplified Wireless TV Headset Listener is a wireless amplified stethoset receiver, ideal for personal amplification of various sound sources, including TVs, HiFis, iPod/iPhones and CD/MP3 Players. Because it uses a headset rather than speaker, this TV listener won't disturb other viewers, enabling you to get the loudest sound that's right for you while enabling them to keep the TV volume at a level that's right for them. Moreover, the microphone on the side of the transmitters allows you to use the receiver as an assistive listening device, amplifying your surroundings.
Which Devices Are Compatible with This TV Listener?
The Amplified Wireless TV Headset Listener was designed to be used to transmit audio signals from an audio source, most often a TV set, using cordless transmission. Because it uses standard 3.5mm connections, the Amplified Wireless TV Headset Listener can be used with a range of other audio devices as well, such as:
- Hi-Fi Systems
- CD/MP3 Players
Can I Use It as A Hearing Assistant?
As well as amplifying TV audio, the listener can also amplify sounds from the real world, thanks to an integrated microphone that picks up sounds around you. The headset's built-in amplifier makes ambient sounds as loud as TV audio, enabling you to hear conversations in the room loudly and clearly.
How Does the Amplified Wireless TV Headset Listener Work?
The Amplified Wireless TV Headset Listener is an audio amplification system, designed specifically for people with hearing difficulties. Audio output from a TV or audio device is transmitted by the charging cradle, while the wireless headset receives the signal and amplifies the audio sound for the listener.
How Loud Is It?
This incredibly loud TV listener can boost the volume up to 125dB, which is ideal even for the severely hearing impaired. Built-in left/right balance control enables you to adjust which earpiece sound comes from, and tone control enables you to adjust the frequency of the sound, helping you to get the best sound for your hearing needs as well as the best volume.
Is the Headset Completely Wireless?
Yes, this headset is totally wireless, providing you with an incredible level of flexibility in use. You can sit anywhere in the room and get exactly the same audio quality wherever you are. To ensure the best user experience, the headset has been designed to be as comfortable to wear as possible – ideal for longer periods in front of the box for a film or TV binge!
Is the Amplified Wireless TV Headset Listener Difficult to Operate?
Not at all. This Wireless Amplified TV Headset Listener was designed to be suitable for use even by the technically less savvy users:
- Switch on the audio source. The green indicator LED on the transmitter will glow constantly.
- Switch the On/Off switch on the headset receiver to On position.
- Adjust the volume to the desired sound level, then fit the earbuds in your ears.
How Is It Powered?
The headset is supplied with a charging station and a power cable, which allows you to charge the wireless headset by simply placing it on the charging station. The batteries provide up to six hours of life per full charge, ensuring you never lose the soundtrack mid-programme.
What Is the Range?
The listener is completely wireless, enabling you to be free of the tangled messes that cables can cause. It features a 60m outdoor range and a 20m indoor range, meaning you can easily walk around your house and still hear the TV. The headset has a fantastic battery life of up to six hours continuous use, and it even includes a fast charging base station so that you can keep the battery topped up when not in use.
Do I Have to Remove My Hearing Aid to Use This Product?
Yes, this system is designed with a headset that fits snugly in your ears, meaning you must remove your hearing aid for proper use. If you would rather use a system that transmits an audio signal directly to your hearing aid, we recommend a neckloop system like the Sonumaxx 2.4 PR Headset System with Neckloop.
What Warranty Does the Geemarc Amplified Wireless TV Headset Listener Have?
For extra peace of mind, the Geemarc Amplified Wireless TV Headset Listener is supplied with a two-year manufacturer's warranty.
