What is the difference between SMARTO and ACCESS?
Both products include Alango’s field-proven hearing enhancement technologies and are supported by the W&H BeHear smartphone app.
Here are the main differences between BeHear SMARTO and BeHear ACCESS:
- SMARTO provides 70dB hearing boost; ACCESS “only” 42dB
- SMARTO attaches to an “over the ear” or “in-ear” headset; ACCESS is a self-contained in-ear headset
- SMARTO has an extremely simple interface from the device itself; ACCESS incudes advanced features that require the use of the W&H BeHear smartphone app
- SMARTO can connect to one Bluetooth device at a time (TV or cell phone, for example); ACCESS can connect to two devices simultaneously
- SMARTO rechargeable battery provides up to 48 hours of hearing amplification; ACCESS rechargeable battery provides up to 13 hours in hearing mode
BeHear SMARTO was designed for people who need a powerful hearing boost with simple controls. BeHear ACCESS is for the more sophisticated user; it looks and functions just like a wireless Bluetooth headset.
How does the BeHear ACCESS headset compare with Bose Hearphones feedback reduction?
We believe our BeHear ACCESS amplification headsets are the best in the market at feedback reduction, because they:
- use our sound enhancement technology which has been developed and field-proven over the course of two decades,
- employ special algorithms to cancel echo, avoid feedback, and reduce background noise,
- come with silicone ear buds in various shapes and sizes to suit a wide variety of ear canals and help keep ambient noise out and clarified, amplified sounds in,
- and include special technology allowing the wearer to determine how much of his/her own voice is heard.
Note that feedback is often the result of heightened amplification used as compensation for extremely severe hearing loss (and less than optimal ear bud fittings).
