CMS, a healthcare consulting company which also created the hearables marketplace in Canada, will distribute Wear & Hear.
CMS, a healthcare consulting company which also created the hearables marketplace in Canada, will distribute Wear & Hear in that territory.

♦ 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.

♦ One of our first on-line customers was sufficiently moved by his experience with the BeHear NOW headset to write us about it in detail.

Thanks for your assistance in receiving the Wear & Hear.

It arrived yesterday.

At first I just tried it w/o hearing test or other adjustments except gain.

I was amazed at how much better it enhances sound than what I was using before.

Then I charged it and performed the standard test and later the advanced test.

It was incredibly good after the standard test was applied.

Then even a bit better after the advanced test.

A little additional fine tuning resulted in a bit better performance.

The android app worked well and was generally straight forward to use.

I was able to hear sounds that I don’t remember ever hearing before such as the crinkling sound when I opened the small plastic bags with the ear bud ear hooks, etc.

Second Testimonial for BeHear NOW Assistive Hearing Headset

BeHear NOW Indiegogo Backer Shares Experience

BeHear headset parts
The BeHear NOW headset is provided with silicone ear buds and tips in a wide variety of styles and sizes.

♦ Prior to officially launching the BeHear NOW assistive hearing headset to worldwide markets, we launched an Indiegogo campaign to attract Beta testers. We wanted to gather opinions from “early adopters” regarding the product’s effectiveness, usability, and comfort.

After shipping the Beta version to the registered Indiegogo backers we sent out a survey to gather feedback.

However, in addition to the standard survey responses, one backer was so impressed he sent us an e-mail with the following content:

I can tell you right now, unequivocally, I love this product.  I’m only using it for hearing amplification, though.  Right out of the box, my voice sounded to me as if I were in a barrel or had a bad head cold.  After changing out the earpiece to the rubber ones with slits on the sides…all’s well!  The battery charges quickly and lasts for the day, although the device is not always powered up all day.  The preprogrammed settings work ok (although I can’t tell much of a difference between the four.  I keep it on the indoor #1  setting), and the volume adjustments are easy.  The earbud fitting is  ingenious as they stay in and are not the least bit uncomfortable.

Finally, the appearance of the entire device is pleasing as due to a bit of vanity, I’m glad they don’t look like hearing aids…(I feel as I’m blending in with what the kids wear for their music).

Great product, and I won’t even say “so far”.
