“What the miniTek allows us to do is really create a personal headset for that wearer and capture any signal, whether it’s from a television or telephone or an iPod, and it places it right in their ears.  So it’s like listening to a personal iPod that’s actually tailored for their hearing loss.  It puts the sounds right in their ears.  And just improves the sound quality in general.”
