BeHear™ is a wireless Bluetooth personalizable headset that provides hearing enhancement and assistive listening functionality. BeHear can be tuned to address your specific hearing capabilities for all applications, such as voice communication via mobile phone, listening to music, etc.
Simple, Built-in, Self-Administered Hearing Assessment
A free application (downloadable from Google Play or Apple Store) that runs on your smartphone can be used to administer a simple hearing assessment. Using the assessment results, the product automatically adjusts voice and audio input controls to suit your hearing levels, creating various profiles based on the listening environment (indoors/outdoors, crowded/sparse, etc.). You can fine tune these profiles at any time using a simple procedure.
Advanced Bluetooth Stereo Headset…and More
BeHear functions as a Bluetooth headset with advanced capabilities, personal sound amplifier and, when paired with a transmitter, as an assistive listening device. While it can be used in a standalone mode, it is also tunable and customizable from a smartphone, tablet or PC.
BeHear allows you to stay connected to your environment while listening to music. With ListenThrough™ sound enhancement technology, a smart algorithm that allows important sounds through to your ears, you’ll be able to listen to music and engage in your favorite activities while remaining alert to important ambient sounds.
BeHear also helps improve your hearing comprehension. While talking on the phone or listening to voicemail, EasyListen™ technology slows down speech to improve intelligibility of “fast talkers”, foreign languages, and recorded messages.
Appreciate Music to the Fullest, Hearing Every Note
Although your hearing may not be classified as impaired by the medical community, it is a proven fact that most people lose the ability to hear the full spectrum of sound as they get older. This reduction in the ability to process sounds at various spectra diminishes your hearing enjoyment, especially when listening to music. Hearing aids, developed specifically to improve the ability to hear spoken language, cannot help you overcome this deficiency since they typically support frequencies of up to only 10KHz. BeHear supports up to 16 KHz, greatly enhancing the listening experience at live concerts. Streamed music via Bluetooth audio (from music players, mobile phones, remote microphones, or remote TV transmitters) can be also be personalized for your hearing preferences and capabilities.
Converse Freely; No Need to Ask for Repetition
BeHear includes four separate microphones for hearing enhancement and clarity of voice conversations. Beamforming technology in BeHear improves identification and isolation of your voice, no matter in which direction you move your head. Its multi-microphone technology feeds intelligent algorithms that cancel out unimportant noise. The result: improved intelligibility of spoken language.
Enjoy a Consistently Comfortable Hearing Experience
Whether you are conversing in person or on the phone, or listening to music, let your ears hear the important sounds while disregarding distracting noise. With BeHear technology, ambient, low-frequency noises are reduced – through active noise cancellation technology – while high frequency sounds are enhanced. With BeHear you avoid having to increase the volume to counter environmental noise, such as a car’s engine, or irrelevant conversations. It monitors and processes the incoming sounds in real-time, ensuring a comfortable hearing experience that actively enhances your hearing based on the environment.
Increase Your Hearing Comprehension on the Phone
Hearing comprehension on your mobile phone tends to degenerate when listening to “fast talkers” and foreign languages. It is further complicated due to the lack of the visual cues provided by body language. Deciphering recorded messages on your phone is also a challenge. BeHear employs a technology that can help. It’s called EasyListen™, and works real-time to dynamically slow down incoming speech, whether in a live phone conversation or from a recorded message, making it more natural and understandable while maintaining a natural conversation flow.
