Individuals with hearing loss understand well the trials of watching television with family or friends. Finding a volume level suitable for everybody borders on impossible. A number of assistive devices are available to provide hearing loss patients with an immersive audio experience similar to wearing headphones.

HyperSound®

HyperSound® speakers are geared exclusively toward people with hearing loss. Careful clinical research has led to an innovative speaker system that beams high-quality audio directly to the listener, while others in the room can enjoy their favorite television program at a normal volume level.

HyperSound Clear™ is completely customizable to match your specific type and degree of hearing loss and your individual listening preferences. High quality audio sound is beamed to targeted listeners’ favorite spot, whether that is a cozy armchair or couch, eliminating the need for headphones. Unlike traditional speakers which diffuse sound across the room, HyperSound speakers transmit sound in a highly controlled, narrow beam. Sound waves no longer bounce around the room and reflect off multiple surfaces; instead, they travel directly to the listener’s ear, resulting in improved sound clarity and speech intelligibility. You hear better, and others in the room are not affected. An intuitive remote control makes adjusting the volume and other settings simple. Best of all, HyperSound is compatible with existing television speakers and surround sound systems.
