Headphones that adapt to the needs of hard-​of-​hearing people

July 14, 2015 by Maxime Bacon
People with hearing loss that are looking for TV headphones often have a hard time choosing among the many models available on the market. Headsets are usually preconfigured and cannot be adjusted to compensate for a hearing loss. However, the new RS 195 closed headset meets this need.

The devices offers seven presettings with various sound profiles that compress, accentuate or strengthen high, medium or low frequency sounds as needed, while compensating for the user’s hearing loss.

In addition to delivering high sound quality, these headsets are very user-friendly. Convenient controls make it easy to take advantage of a host of features, and an ergonomic design provides a comfortable fit, even after hours of listening.

Whether you are watching television or listening to music, you won’t miss a thing: highly innovative digital wireless technology guarantees crystal clear signal transmission with low latency, even while you move from room to room. Listening modes allow you to adapt the sound to your individual needs and preferences. You’ll hear the subtle nuances of dialogue and the slight details of your favourite music like never before.
