TV Ears is a lightweight headset using voice clarifying technology intended to capture the TV's audio signal and amplify only the human voice frequencies while decreasing background noise.

From the website: "Have you ever had someone yelling at you to turn the TV down? We understand that simply watching TV can be a source of frustration and tension, but we don’t believe it should be. Gone are the days of irritating your loved ones by blasting the television volume. Give TV Ears a try and experience the quality, clarity, and ease of use that we’re known for."

Discussion and Reviews


from John (SRC explorer) (unverified) at November 03, 2020

We already have a sound bar for our TV but my wife likes to keep it a low level, so that rules out the sound box (evaluated recently by the same explorer group).

The TV head phones (TV Ears) use an infra-red signal between the transmitter and the head phones - strictly line of sight - but I prefer an RF signal which allows me to move around if necessary without losing the signal.

After some searching I found the Avantree HT380 (see this product on Amazon), which uses an RF signal, has left-right balance control, treble and bass control, and some other nice features. I bought it and hooked it up, and it is working fine, no problems so far.

The headphones are not blue-tooth, but I don't mind hanging the small receiver around my neck.

Wishing you well,
John (SRC explorer circle)

Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database

This is one of hundreds of products and resources in the Tech-enhanced Life database of "useful products and resources".

The theme of this collection of resources is "tools we can use to help improve our quality of life as we grow older".

We have no vested interest in any of these products or services, but we have collected descriptions of them, and organized them according to various themes relating to the challenges of aging — so older adults and their families can find useful products they do not yet know about. 

Members of Tech-enhanced Life can search by categories, add reviews of the products, and see links to the manufacturer's websites where they can buy the product or access the resource.

The criteria for adding products and resources to this database is that we think they "look useful, noteworthy, and interesting", and have the potential to improve life for older adults and their families. We have evaluated some of these products, in which case you will see links to a detailed review and or to explorer discussions about the product on this page, or inputs from explorers in the comments.

If the listing does not include reviews or explorer discussions, then we have not evaluated it sufficiently to be able to recommend it or comment on how well it works. If you research this product or resource further, and especially if you try it out, please come back to this page and add your comments.
