The result: a new product line called “Wear & Hear”.

Hearables Line Combines Alango Sound Enhancement Technology with State-of-the-Art Consumer Electronics
The Wear & Hear line of stylish, affordable, always-on, always-connected wearable audio devices is designed to enhance user’s hearing and deliver customized, crystal clear and pleasantly natural audio and voice directly to an individual’s ears.
The first member of the Wear & Hear product line, BeHear® NOW, is a multi-functional, high-performance, low-cost alternative to traditional hearing aids. It is a self-tunable, truly personal Bluetooth headset featuring advanced signal processing with ambient hearing enhancement and assistive listening capabilities. After a simple hearing assessment performed via an intuitive smartphone application supporting both Android and iOS devices, all BeHear sounds (ambient, phone calls or music) are customized for the auditory system of the wearer.
HearLink™ is a Bluetooth transmitter that connects to the standard analog audio output of most audio devices or television sets. It sends the audio signal directly to the paired BeHear® NOW headset, thus eliminating ambient noises, room reverberation, and other types of sound interference which hamper intelligibility of speech and music appreciation.
Wear & Hear Products Availability
Both the BeHear NOW assistive hearing Bluetooth stereo headsets and the HearLink assistive listening audio transmitters are currently available for sale worldwide. For pricing and shipping information, visit www.WearAndHear.com/shop.
