TV Ears. Hey, super useful they may be, but as a tech design statement these things don’t speak to me at all. Know what I mean? At any volume. $169.95.
Great for people with mild or moderate hearing loss, the TV Ears allow you to clearly hear the TV without turning up the volume. This is accomplished through the use of voice-enhancement technology, which raises hard to hear words above the program’s background sound so they’ll stand out…Automatic volume control (AVC) automatically reduces annoying bursts in volume during commercials and channel surfing.
