If you live with an older person, or someone else who has hearing difficulties, the blasting volume at which they listen to the television can be excruciating to the rest of the household. TV Ears was developed in 1998 by George Dennis, who was looking for a solution to help his elderly father enjoy watching and listening to the TV without having to invest in expensive hearing aids. TV Ears became a best-selling product with over two million customers helped to date. TV Ears is a voice-clarifying headset, worn by the hearing-impaired viewer to help increase the volume to that person, so he can listen easily in private, without turning up the set’s volume or disturbing other viewers. The headset captures audio signals and amplifies human voices, while decreasing background noise, for a more pleasant and clear listening experience. TV Ears also sells wireless speakers and accessories for its products.
