Product Description

Do you have problems hearing - even when your hearing aids are on full blast? So many people still struggle to differentiate voices in conversation and hear amid background noise even with their hearing aids.

That's why our personal listeners  - like the Contego Personal Listening Device - are proving extremely popular. This piece of equipment in particular is our best selling item in its range and will transform your ability to hear again. 

By focusing on the sounds you want to hear, and reducing background noise to a minimum, it provides crystal clear audio, even in difficult circumstances.

Realising that you are not catching all the conversation even when your hearing aids are in can be very frustrating. But you wouldn't be alone - so many people who live with hearing loss rely on more than just hearing aids to provide intelligible audio.

Our range of assistive listening devices are extremely popular - and give a boost to hearing aid wearers in the situations where sound quality can suffer.

The Contego Personal Listening Device is a firm favourite amongst our customers. If you want a tool that enhances the sounds and voices you want to hear and minimise background noise, then this is the kit for you.

How does the Contego Personal Listening Device work?

This personal listener comes in three separate parts:

Receiver - this helps send the sounds you want to hear to your hearing aid.

Neckloop - this is worn around the neck and connects to the receiver. It works with the receiver to relay sound to your hearing aid.

Transmitter - This picks up sound and wirelessly sends it to the receiver from up to 25 metres away. This is particularly useful when listening to someone or something from a distance.

This 25 metre field helps in lectures, classrooms, board meetings, training workshops - anywhere where the speaker is some distance from you. Simply hand the transmitter to the speaker and enjoy amplified sound to your hearing aids.

You decide what you want to hear

The Contego offers flexible hearing. Enjoying a conversation around a table at a dinner party and listening in on a lecture requires two different types of hearing. The Contego allows you to control this with a touch of a button. You can set the microphones to draw in sound from all around (like around a dinner table) or a you can set them to just pick the audio up from a specific direction - perfect for talks and presentations.

Don’t worry - it’s simple to use

You’ll be pleased to know that that this omni directional listening device is really easy to use. There are no complicated menus. You can control the volume of the transmitter and the receiver separately using simple ‘up’ and ‘down’ buttons. The display clearly shows how loud you have set the volume.

You also change between the two different microphone settings at the touch of a button. So, if you are listening to a presentation and then suddenly want to hear what someone in the audience is saying then you can quickly adjust the microphone settings accordingly.

The functions of the Contego Personal Listening Device include:

  • Built-in omni-directional (takes in sound from all around) and directional microphones in both the transmitter and the receiver
  • Choice of digital channels
  • Coded transmission for increased confidentiality
  • Operating range up to 25m
  • The dimensions of both the receiver and the transmitter are 45mm wide x 100 mm long x 25mm deep.

  • Supplied with a television microphone

I am a keen horse rider and use two NHS hearing aids (siemens reflex M). Two situations I find difficult:Hearing an instructor when I am having a lesson on a moving horse.Hearing at talks and demonstrations in large draughty barns and out in the open.

The Contego would be ideal to use in both of the above situations. Because of the large operating range of the unit ( up to 25m) and also the fact that both the transmitter and receiver has the omni and directional microphone settings this unit will hopefully meet up to your criteria.

I bought a Contego from you in 2006, and am very pleased with the product. I use it for watching and hearing TV with the sound kit provided. I would like to use it for listening to the radio, and I think I would therefore need a cable with plugs at each

You will require the TV kit order code L325B. I hope this information helps

Can the receiver microphone be switched off?

The Microphones on the receiver can not be switched off but can be turned down by the volume control on the receiver. I hope this information helps

I have the the contego radio aid. I would like to get a decent neck loop for this device and you give me some pointers in the right direction as i use this for work for 8 hours a day.

The order code for the neckloop which can be used with the Contego listener is L320A.

This is a quality device and is arguably the best value for money of the listeners currently available in the same price bracket.

Thank you for your feedback regarding this product.

 Good but....

Posted by Jeannie, BIRMINGHAM on 16 February 2017

The has enabled me to hear in so many situations and I have been very pleased. Both myself and my teacher wear the devises via the clips. These appear to be very flimsy and have now both snapped off. I now have to pay to have them repaired and it will also take at least two weeks as they are sent away, this means I will not be able to attend my classes. This is not a cheap product and one would expect it to be more robustly made.

 Good but not perfect

Posted by Andrew, Ipswich on 24 August 2016

It is well presented product manufactured from high-quality plastics etc. It does improve the sound from TVs and remote speech but the range is quite limited. The quoted 25 metres is just about achievable in direct line with nothing between transmitter (TX) and receiver (RX). I have found it struggles at even 5 metres if the TX and RX are at different angles. Occasional drop-outs occur if a mobile phone is nearby. For information, the best sound for me has come from plugging the TX directly into a lead from the TV and connecting the RX to my Phonak iCom. Lots of wires, though so neckloop is second best.

 A very good device

Posted by John, Newton Abbot on 30 March 2015

I have used a contego regularly for over 5 years. It is extremely useful and I recommend it as reliable. The only thought is that it needs attention to the controls to make the most of it. Hence for the very elderly perhaps a problem. I review it and other devices on the website www.listeningdevicesforthedeaf.co.uk

 Pretty good

Posted by Derek, FORT WILLIAM on 06 June 2014

Thought twice about this for my Dad who's 91 and has had progressive hearing loss for the last thirty years due to working in the coal mines at 14. Despite the best NHS could give him conversation was hard work. Wax production and sore ears when wearing "conventional digital" aids was also a great problem. The smile on his face was great when I equipted him with the Contego ! Couple of points. No seperate volume controls for L/R although I've found a cable mounted control in Australia ! Buttons and charger plug a bit small for stiff fingers. Screen a bit small. Manufacturer take note !! Use any earphones you like as it's a standard plug. Dad has settled on Maxell el cheapos are around £2 on fleabay ! Almost disposable. Plenty of choice around. Sport ones for the garden work great. So far so good !

 Fantastic Product

Posted by John, LAUNCESTON on 24 July 2012

This is a fantastic product. Why ? Because it's easy to use - lightweight - and in my case it's 100% effective. It is particularly effective in a meeting when the microphone can be placed "With the meeting presenter" Even if your sitting at the back of the room every word is very clear. I rate this item 5 Stars

 Brilliant product

Posted by Daniel, Barnet on 03 February 2012

Tried this out at a class and found it so invaluable that I requested my employers bought one for me. Meetings have been transformed, for the first time since I got hearing aids most meetings are clear, even if people mumble a little I can still hear them. Was on a trianing day and for the first time in a long time I could hear every word.

Fantastic, I can now hear people and the TV without actually seeing the person or TV. The first time I haven't used subtitles in a long time.

This product changed the quality of my father's life.When he first used the product he cried. He never thought he would get the quality of hearing back after losing his hearing with eardrum damage in the RAF. Thank you.

Brilliant! For the first time in ages I've been to a lecture and heard clearly. The only snag is that in a seminar I have to choose between the teacher or the class. Excellent for TV. I can hear without deafening others or disturbing the neighbours.

Marvellous! And because the neckloop incorporates a mic as well as a receiver I am able to listen to the radio in the house whilst in the garden and even converse with people. Also can adjust volume on both radio and in the garden from neckloop.

It has enhanced the lives of my wife and myself as we can now converse without having to be face to face. There was a problem with the lead from the charger, but this was promptly replaced.

From the moment I put the Contego on this work for me. I could hear without having to lip read. The range I could hear from was brilliant. People think it's a mobile. It's easy to operate. I charge overnight. It puts me back into the land of the living again. Brilliant.
