Description

BeHear NOW utilizes voice processing technologies developed by Alango Technologies, Ltd. over the past two decades, such as:

  • ListenThrough – Passing through important ambient sounds during music playback
  • EasyListen – slowing down speech dynamically during phone conversations
  • Personal Sound Amplifier – providing dynamic, compressed amplification of ambient sounds
  • Hearing enhancement functions – including noise reduction, echo cancellation, and more

The BeHear NOW assistive hearing headset belongs to a new category of sound enhancement products. It combines the functionality of three existing devices into one:

  • Bluetooth stereo headset for wireless mobile phone calls and media playback
  • Assistive hearing device for enhanced intelligibility of speech and other important sounds
  • Digital hearing aid for personalized sound amplification across a wide sound spectrum

Situational Hearing Enhancement:
When You Need It

BeHer NOW can enhance hearing for those with normal hearing, as well as people with mild to moderate hearing loss. This is true for all situations:

  • In-person conversations
  • Mobile phone conversations
  • Music/audio streaming
  • Television viewing
  • Movies, theater and concert performances
  • Outdoors, in nature

Customizable for Your Hearing Capabilities and Preferences

The headset itself includes a variety of controls to manage its hearing functions, which work “out of the box” for four different hearing profiles:

  • Indoor
  • Outdoor
  • Crowd
  • Live Music

These profiles can be modified in real-time, based on the current sound environment and the wearer’s preferences, using the W&H BeHear mobile application. The application also includes:

A self-administered personal hearing assessment for automatic adjustment of the sound in each of the operational modes: ambient hearing, phone calls, and audio play

  • Direct access to the video tutorials library
  • An option to set the balance between left and right ears
  • Assistive listening functions for phone calls and media playback
  • Various device settings, including default mode behavior, vibration alerts, and more

The W&H BeHear application can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store or Apple Store
