Using directional sound beaming to help those with hearing loss. I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Hearing loss is a problem that millions of people cope with every day. Turtle Beach… a company best known perhaps for making gaming headsets….is out with a product it calls Hypersound Clear….designed to help people with hearing loss enjoy TV …without having to crank up the volume so much that it disturbs others in the room. The company’s Mac Marshall….
“We’re able to point beams of audio to a specific location, the same way a flashlight projects a beam of light, we’re able to do the same thing with audio. We found out that this is exceptionally beneficial to somebody that lives with hearing loss because in a home TV watching, home listening experience, it allows you to be able to watch the television again at a normal volume level.”
It is designed to work with your existing home audio setup…and sells for about 15 hundred dollars. You can get more info at Hypersoundhearing.com. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
