People between the ages of 50 and 70 have a 1-in-3 chance of having hearing loss, yet less than 20% opt to wear hearing aids. Untreated hearing loss decreases productivity, increases falling risk, dementia, and social isolation. BeHear ACCESS is a stylish neck-loop type Bluetooth headset that also functions as a personalized hearing amplifier. It provides an alternative to hearing aids for people with mild to moderate (and even severe) hearing loss. Using the dedicated free smartphone app, people can assess their own hearing and personalize the headset to suit their unique hearing profile. The result: enhanced hearing in live conversations and during mobile calls, leading to better communication overall. Large, tactile control buttons and a charging cradle make it suitable for people with dexterity issues. Built-in telecoil receivers improve hearing in locales equipped with hearing loop technology, such as houses of worship, auditoriums, and service counters.
