Are you hard of hearing? Are you losing your hearing due to age or has an ear infection caused permanent damage to your hearing? You don’t have to suffer with this problem; technology has advanced so much and you can now do things that may have been difficult for you just a few years ago. Here are some essential CareCo audio accessories for the hard of hearing to improve your quality of life and help you go about your day.
Looking like an old-fashioned hearing aid, this is state of the art audio equipment for the modern person with poor hearing. It’s an entry-level CareCo audio accessory that does exactly what you need it to do. It’s small, lightweight and comfortable on the ear having been made from light materials that won’t irritate the skin. It has dual controls – one for volume (the loudness of noise) and one for tone (the pitch of a sound). These require 1* LR44 batteries. This is fully medically approved with a CE Mark class 11a.
Continue enjoying your favourite TV shows and films with this CareCo audio accessory for the home. But it’s not just for your television or audio system, it will also connect to your smartphone device, tablet or mp3 player. It’s one of the most impressive TV listening devices presently on the market. It’s lightweight and comfortable, so comfortable in fact, that you won’t realise you’re wearing it. As this is a wireless, it requires charging. Simply replace on the plug-in base to keep it charged. It has a 60m range so if you’re working in the garden, you will hear your phone ring.
Getting up for an appointment or for work in the morning can be problematic when you’re hard of hearing. CareCo audio accessories also include several devices deaf and hard of hearing friendly. We particularly like this. It not only has an audio sound to wake you up, it also vibrates. This is useful for the hard of hearing, deep sleepers for whom few noises will actually wake them and people who don’t want to disturb a sleeping partner. For the deaf and heard of hearing, put the device beneath the pillow and you’ll feel the vibrations through it.
It used to be that the deaf and hard of hearing could not use a landline phone. The technology simply wasn’t there to link them up to hearing aids or audio amplifiers. But now the technology is there – it’s convenient and it’s inexpensive and all you need do is set your hearing aid to the T setting or Audio Loop. Most cordless phones have a maximum volume of about 10db but this small and lightweight model goes up to an astounding 50db. We’re proud to offer CareCo audio accessories that enable people to live their lives and enjoy things that most others take for granted.
The hard of hearing have (nearly) always been an untapped market for mobile phones until new technologies made it possible. Don’t be put off by the “retro” clamshell appearance of this CareCo audio accessory – it’s fully compatible with your hearing aid, so long as it uses M4/T4 standards. With seven audio levels and a visual alert for when it’s ringing, this is your best link to the outside world when out and about. The larger buttons are useful for people with poor eyesight and those with rheumatism or arthritis. The ultimate mobile phone for mobility issues and disability.
