Let’s face it. With TV shows and movies these days, being able to adequately hear the dialogue can be a challenge for some, especially when listening later at night with the volume down. ZVOX is following up its previous AccuVoice TV Speaker with a new model that boasts six levels of AccuVoice dialogue boost which allows users to tailor their TV sound to their needs.
“At ZVOX we are committed to bringing hearing enhancing solutions to consumers with mild to moderate hearing loss,” says Tom Hannaher, ZVOX CEO. “Millions of Americans are over the age of 50. And they are the first generation to grow up listening to LOUD rock music – so many suffer from
minorhearing impairment. Combine those rock-impaired ears with the puny sound systems built into flat screenTVs and you get an epidemic of people who are constantly asking ‘What did he say?’ while watching TV shows. Our new AV203 AccuVoice TV Speaker – with six powerful levels of voice boost allows everyone to hear all the dialogue in their favorite TV shows.”
With patented algorithms, the ZVOX AccuVoice speaker lifts voices out of the show’s soundtrack to make the dialogue “remarkably clear” while not affecting the rest of the audio. The speaker’s Output Leveling system also reduces the volume on usually louder commercials for a more balanced sound output.
