Alango’s Wear & Hear line of personalized hearing devices to be distributed in Canada by hearing supply company, CMS
♦ Alango has signed a distribution agreement with Clinic Management Services Inc. (“CMS”), a healthcare consulting company which also created the hearables marketplace in Canada. According to the agreement, CMS will sell Alango’s “Wear & Hear” line of Personal Hearing Devices via their online store, specialty channels, and traditional consumer electronics channels in Canada.
Assistive Hearing Products Form New Hearables Category
To address the needs of the millions of people with mild-to-moderate hearing loss worldwide (who are not currently benefiting from hearing aids), Alango has incorporated its field-proven digital sound processing technologies into a line of affordable, wearable consumer electronics devices that provide personalized hearing enhancement to the wearer. The result: a new product line under the brand name “Wear & Hear”.
Experienced Healthcare Clinic Consultants Connect Hearing Professionals with Solutions
CMS recently participated in the annual Canadian Academy of Audiology (CAA 2018) event, exhibiting the Wear & Hear products alongside other hearables in their booth. It was an opportunity to meet progressive audiologists looking to make a difference in their practices and introduce them to differentiated products that solve real client issues.
“With their real-world healthcare clinic experience, CMS is a trusted consultant for hearing professionals,” states Dr. Alexander Goldin, CEO and founder of Alango Technologies, Ltd. “I believe they are well-positioned to launch our Wear & Hear line of affordable, stylish, comfortable personalized hearing devices in Canada.”
“The hearing industry is at a crossroads. Multi-purpose hearing devices will bring the same catalytic change that smart phones brought to the mobile industry,” predicts Sharad Ojha, CEO of Clinic Management Services and hearableworld.com. According to Sharad, “This is the time for forward-thinking clinicians to embrace hearables and make them an inclusive part of their practices, to help the majority of clients who come into their clinics. We are very excited about our partnership with Alango because the Wear & Hear line of products provides a tangible, cost-effective solution to people who have a hearing challenge but do not choose to use hearing aids.”
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.
