The alternative to TV headphones
Finally understand TV again with OSKAR
For many people, watching television is part of their daily routine. But if hearing problems occur at some point, either due to age or as a result of a disease, the relaxed evening watching TV can quickly become a strenuous and tiring affair: Those affected miss important information and can no longer follow actions and conversations.
In this case, many people turn to TV headphones, such as chin-strap headphones, which are wireless headphones or wireless headphones connected to the TV via Bluetooth. Headphones for the hard of hearing are designed to enable the hearing impaired to better understand the sound and thus improve the audio experience. However, you can find out below why TV headphones are often a poor choice and what advantages portable hearing aids such as the OSKAR offer.
TV sound processor vs. TV headphones: advantages and disadvantages
Fortunately, there are special hearing aids available today for people with hearing impairment that help provide a better TV viewing experience. The two most common solutions are wireless headphones for TVs (wireless headphones, headphones with Bluetooth, chin-strap headphones) and TV sound amplifiers.
However, compared to audio amplifiers, wireless headphones offer some disadvantages:
Uncomfortable to wear
Wearing wireless headphones, for example chin-bar headphones, can quickly become uncomfortable. This is often due to the weight or pressure of the earphones on the jaw and ears.
Often, movement noises such as the rustling of clothes or typing on the cell phone are reproduced very loudly and clearly by the chin-wire headset. This can affect the quality of the sound and be annoying.
TV headphones and hearing aid
Those who already wear a hearing aid usually cannot use it in parallel with headphones. The hearing aid must first be removed from the ear, which can be inconvenient and annoying.
Participation in the social environment
When you want to watch TV together with friends or family, TV headphones can create a barrier. Wearing a wireless headset can cause you to remove yourself from the social environment and distance yourself from conversations and interactions.
Headphones usually only improve the volume, but not the sound.
The better alternative to TV headphones is the wireless OSKAR TV voice amplifier.
Good reasons, perfect implementation
The OSKAR was specially developed for the hearing impaired and helps to make the television experience more enjoyable and understandable. The idea came to Marcell Faller, founder of faller audio, when he noticed that his father could no longer fully enjoy watching television due to his hearing loss.
He developed the solution together with international research companies from the field of hearing acoustics as well as hearing-impaired people: a portable television speaker that
- simply brings the sound to the desired listening position to enjoy TV at normal volume without disturbing other people in the room,
- does not shield the user from the environment, as is the case with wireless headphones,
- with special speech optimization makes the speech and dialogs on TV clearly understandable.
The OSKAR hearing aid has a wireless connection between the transmitter (base station) and receiver (speaker), which allows a range of up to 30 m. The base station can be easily connected to your TV via a 3.5 mm audio connector or an optical audio output. The device is compatible with most popular models. Then, simply position the portable speaker near you to get TV sound directly to your listening spot. But that's not all.
Innovative technology, simple operation and strong design: making television a pleasure again
The special voice optimization of the OSKAR specifically amplifies the important audio frequencies to enable clear reproduction of conversations and speeches and to filter out disturbing noises.
The wireless sound amplifier is very easy to use. You simply connect it to the TV and can immediately enjoy the TV experience without having to deal with complicated settings. With just one button, you can turn the sound processor on and off and adjust the volume to a level that is comfortable for you. Three different hearing profiles allow you to reduce background noise to varying degrees. This way you can easily adjust the sound to your individual needs.
Unlike TV headphones or wireless headphones, the OSKAR also scores with its attractive design. The housing is made of high-quality aluminum and has a circumferential rubber coating that ensures a secure stand. The carrying handle provides comfortable carrying and allows you to hear the TV sound wherever you need it in the home. In addition, the sound amplifier has dirt-repellent speaker covers.
