Best Tv Headsets for Hearing Impaired – BUYER’S GUIDE

Volume Control – Being able to modify the volume of the device is a must-have feature to ensure that you can customize the device to your specific hearing level. Almost all devices will have this control.

Range – Some systems will give you a range of up to 45 m. For most television watching situations, a range of between 10-20 m should be sufficient.

Hearing Aid /Telecoil Compatibly – For anyone with hearing aids fitted with telecoils many hearing-aid-compatible IR TV listening systems feature receivers designed to connect directly to your hearing aid, or an installed induction loop. Other IR systems feature neck loops that broadcast a signal directly to telecoil-equipped hearing aids.

Transmitter – All of these devices to help you watch TV have a transmitter that usually requires a power source. Most transmitters are quite small, and you shouldn’t need a lot of space to store them. They are most commonly plugged directly into the back of the television.

Receiver – The receiver is what is worn by the listener. The receiver can be a hearing aid, headset (headphones), neck loop, or bodypack. Generally, they have rechargeable batteries that will be charged when the device is not in use and placed back on the transmitter charging cradle.

 Headphones – A lot of the listening systems have a wireless headphone that is battery-powered, and the transmitter generally serves as the battery charger, as well as the place where you would store your wireless headphones. If the headphones are wireless, it is a good idea to check how long is the operating time and the charging time for the headsets.

 Warranty – Most systems come with at least a one-year manufacturer warranty. Since hearing is so subjective, you may find you get a system that a lot of people like but it isn’t right for you and you will want to return it, so it’s important
