Improve Your TV Watching Experience with This Awesome Accessory
Hearing difficulties can make TV-watching difficult — especially when trying to understand speech:
- Turning the volume higher may make the sound louder but won’t necessarily make it clearer.
- Higher volumes can prove harmful to your ears, and loved ones might complain about the loudness.
- Captions can be a big help, but some may find them distracting, and they don’t always sync with real-time speech.
So what to do? Properly fit hearing aids can make a powerful difference in your TV-listening experience. What’s more, a TV streamer can work hand in hand with your hearing devices to make the experience even better. It’s why we’re excited to tell you about the Oticon TV Adapter, which lets you watch television on your terms, whether enjoying a show solo or with the whole family!
Why the TV Adapter?
Oticon’s TV adapter is a device that wirelessly transmits sound from your television or other electronic audio device to your hearing aids. In other words, it’s a TV streamer, bringing the audio of the programs you enjoy directly to your ears — conveniently, comfortably, and clearly.
How does it work? The adapter — a sleek, discreet, tabletop device — is connected to an appropriate power outlet and your television set using the cables provided and then paired with your hearing aids. After the pairing, which typically needs to happen only once, you can stream directly to your hearing aids.
The best part: Using the adapter lets you enjoy more direct sound from your TV straight to your hearing aid at a level tailored to your specific needs — without changing the volume for everyone else. Plus, it’s effective to about 45 feet, making it easy to hear even if the TV is in one room while you’re cooking or handling other activities in another.
Talk about empowerment!
What Exactly Is a TV Streamer?
It’s quite the convenient device — typically a small tabletop accessory — that lets you experience more direct sound from your television straight to your hearing aid at a level customized to your preferences — while letting others in the room hear the TV at the volume that’s right for them.
Many of the hearing instruments purchased in the last three to four years have wireless connectivity, allowing them to connect to a box — the streamer — that’s plugged into your TV. The audio goes directly from the TV into your hearing aids, delivering clear sound without background noise.
People who use streamers love them, and they’re fairly quick to set up. If you’d like to hear the television more clearly, our experts can help determine if your hearing devices would work with a TV streamer.
