Veteran In-ear Hearing Aid User Reviews Assistive Hearing Solution

W&H BeHear app, Hearing Assessment screen, Advanced mode
The free W&H BeHear app, available for iOS and Android devices, includes a self-administered Hearing Assessment to personalize the BeHear NOW headset.

♦ Having struggled for some time with an in-ear hearing aid, I noticed the BeHear NOW headset. The problem with the in-ear system was that earwax (which seemingly I produced more than usual) quickly clogged the small speakers. Also, using many throw away batteries did not appeal to me. Changing to small rechargeable batteries solved that partly but not fully.

I did hesitate to switch to a hearing band [form factor] but this was overcome as I could make use of a trial period.

The BeHear NOW headset is a kind of multi-function device. Apart from acting as a hearing aid, one can also use it a hands-free mobile phone or as one’s private speaker connected via Bluetooth (without -noticeable- transmission delay).

As a hearing aid, one has to match the required amplification over the frequency range which is easily done via the app. The nice thing is that one can “cheat” though that is -of course- not advised.

Once properly set, the app is not needed, so it will work stand-alone.

When losing the Bluetooth transmission, the device will give you a notification. Same when you are back within range. No hassle of pairing again when momentarily going out of range.

I was pleasantly surprised by the good quality when using it as a Bluetooth headphone playing music via a tablet. The volume controls worked nicely.

Just some notes:

On the website you will find a more extensive user manual (under the “Resources” menu) which I recommend to read.

The band uses a battery which is charged via micro usb.

There is a microphone in each of the control boxes.

There is  a microphone in each of the earpieces.

Be prepared to play with the settings.

And, enjoy this headset!

♦ 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.

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”.

Keith Bookman, participant in Beta testing program for BeHear NOW in Israel, provides a testimonial about the product’s effectiveness and comfort.

BeHear NOW is a 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 hearing enhancement and assistive listening capabilities.

In this video interview, Keith Bookman of Moshav Ya’ad in the Lower Galilee, Israel, describes his experience with traditional hearing aids, and contrasts that with his impressions of the BeHear NOW headset, on his first day, and then again after two weeks of use:

BeHear NOW is scheduled for launch in the United States in April 2018, at the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) annual conference in Nashville, Tennessee. Launches in other markets will take place later this year.
