More Than Just A Hearing Amplifier
Barry Mishkind is a veteran broadcaster and editor at The Broadcasters’ Desktop Resource. He has also suffered from tinnitus for more than 50 years.
In his detailed review of BeHear ACCESS, recently published online, Barry listed his five criteria for a good set of headphones:
- They need to be comfortable.
- They need to reproduce audio clearly and cleanly.
- I like good noise reduction.
- The latency is not too long.
- The battery has to last long enough to be useful.
In his comprehensive article he details how BeHear ACCESS addresses and meets each criterion.
He summarizes his experience “…being able to tailor not only the levels but frequencies needed for each ear really does helps in a lot of ways. Furthermore, the other features make it a lot easier to hear everything from conversations to television programs. Especially welcome is the tinnitus masking feature.”
Overall, for any number of situations, it is entirely possible some users might even prefer the ACCESS II to traditional hearing aids. With an MSRP of $299, it certainly will not hit your pocketbook as hard.Barry Mishkind, The Eclectic Engineer
BeHear ACCESS II with tinnitus masking is an excellent hearing enhancement device
Michael Hayes, a long-time BeHear NOW user, learned that the new BeHear ACCESS model includes a feature designed to reduce the effects of tinnitus. He wrote us:
I have suffered from moderate hearing loss accompanied by tinnitus in my left ear for over 50 years due to inner ear nerve damage from an infection. Over the past 5 years I have experienced a measurable decrease in hearing in my right ear and an accompanying increase in tinnitus in that ear as well. I have tried numerous hearing aids over the years but none of them provided me with any improvement for my left ear and no reduction in tinnitus. Only when I tried the BeHear NOW with the personalized modulation technology that I gained some improvement in my left ear hearing.
I installed the new BeHear ACCESS II application and ran the self test, set up my hearing profile, and then began the fine tuning of the tinnitus masking function. The setup was intuitive and within a few minutes I had chosen a masking tone that seemed to work best for both ears. The tinnitus masking function works well, albeit somewhat better for my right ear that has better natural hearing than my left ear that has the severe nerve damage.
In summary the BeHear ACCESS II with tinnitus masking is an excellent hearing enhancement device that I highly recommend for anyone who suffers from hearing loss and tinnitus.
I have experimented with far more expensive devices, (hearing aids), that in my opinion were inferior in performance to the Access II.Michael Hayes, satisfied BeHear ACCESS customer
In conclusion, Michael states: “I am grateful to the staff at Alango for their dedication to hearing enhancement beyond the ordinary.”

I listen in appreciation of the full sound which I have been missing for so long.
Just wanted to thank you and let you know just how much I am enjoying listening to my music collection with BeHear ACCESS. One of my grandsons encouraged me to sign up with Apple Music ($10/month) about a month ago. With this service I can ask Siri to play just about any piece of music ever recorded, giving the title of the piece and the artist or orchestra, and on it comes. I listen in appreciation of the full sound which I have been missing for so long. I then have the option to record the piece my library in my iPhone and can play it whenever I like.
Well, whenever I have the time and of late that is almost some time every day; I take a break from what I am doing and just listen. The majority of music I listen to is Jazz from my teen years – the big bands. The lyrics to these tunes are still in my head for some reason. This is such joy! Thank you.
