This high-quality wireless TV listener has good amplification and exceptional sound quality. Unique to Sennheiser Set series, the Set 900 also has internal microphones to amplify conversation around you.
'Speech Intelligibility' feature balances very high or low volume sounds and lowers high-pitch sounds to tackle symptoms of age related hearing loss.Key Benefits:
This product enables you to hear the TV at a level that suits you without turning the volume up for everyone else. You can also use this model as a personal listener. This means you can hear the TV and conversations and other sounds around you if you want to. The system is cordless so you're free to wander round the room while continuing the hear the TV.
Unlike our radio frequency TV listeners it does require line-of-sight to the TV or stereo though. This means you couldn't use it to listen to the stereo from the garden, or hear your programme from the kitchen while making a cuppa.
Listening to the TV
The Set 900 TV listening system is ideal for people without hearing aids, or who sometimes prefer not to use them. Directly connected to a TV, hi-fi system or radio, the cordless Set 900 provides outstanding sound quality which can be customised to your hearing loss using controls to adjust clarity and tone. The sound is transmitted to the stethoset receiver from the transmitter connected to your T.V. by an infra red signal. Quieter sounds are heard as well as loud sounds by boosting the volume of quiet sounds and reducing the volume of loud sounds, if necessary. Similarly the treble control can help further refine the higher frequencies in speech that you need to hear to help you listen to your favourite programme more easily.
Listening to conversations
The receiver also has two built-in microphones which can be switched on to enable the Set 900 to be used as a personal listener for hearing conversations. You can even set the controls so that you can hear the TV and background sounds (such as conversation) at the same time. This could be particularly useful if you wish to speak to someone in the same room and/or listen out for the telephone ringing. When you are out and about and want to use it as listener it has a handy carry case and it could also be used in your local theatre or cinema to help boost the sound heard if they have an infra red listening system operating on the same signal.
