Relax With Family and Friends

Conversor products can help you enjoy a noisy family meal by filtering out the background noise, allowing you to focus on a particular speaker.

Relaxed conversation in a room

When users place the Conversor Pro microphone/transmitter on the coffee table or other surface facing their speaking companion, they will be able to hold a conversation in a relaxed manner. Conversor Pro microphone/transmitter is now closer than the user’s hearing aid to the sound they want to hear, resulting in a higher degree of sound clarity, and enabling them to converse in a more relaxed manner.

Conversation between rooms

At home, most couples do not spend all of their time together in the same room. If one of them is hard of hearing, the other may have to continuously shout or have to walk back into the room in order to converse. If the partner who is hard of hearing wears the Conversor Pro receiver and the other wears the Conversor Pro microphone/transmitter, then they can talk at normal listening levels, even when moving about from one room to another. Conversor Pro can also be used this way for relaxed conversation when out and about, whether shopping or simply going for a walk.

A New Professional You

When you have conference calls, it can be difficult to hear what other people on the phone are saying as sometimes people talk at the same time. If you have hearing loss we know that it can be tough to pick out the voice of the speaker above the ambient noise, even in meetings.

Solution 1

Use Conversor Pro with directional microphone to focus on the voice of the person speaking. The speaker is given the microphone on directional mode to hold as a normal microphone, wear around their neck on a neck lanyard or place on the table in front of them.

Conversor Pro can be used with hearing aids set to the T, on Telecoil setting, with one or two earbuds or with a set of headphones. When used with headphones the Conversor can amplify the sound source sufficiently to help you. With a hearing aid the aid will do most of the amplification and matching of the sound to compensate for the type of hearing loss you suffer from. In this mode the Conversor Pro acts as a communication device which significantly reduces ambient and background noise.

Solution 2

Use Listenor Pro, an amplified listening device which has an omni-directional microphone fitted as standard. An optional directional microphone can be purchased for situations where the individual wishes to point the microphone at a particular speaker. Listenor Pro has the option of connecting to a headphone or earbud(s) or an inductive loop for wireless connection to the hearing aid. This device is effective for small groups or rooms where the speaker is no more than five metres away from the microphone.

Solution 3

Recording the discussion group using a directional microphone and a voice recorder allows the listener to concentrate on you, the speaker, and understand what is being said. If there are any gaps in their understanding these can be addressed later by reviewing the audio recording. Conversor Pro Recorder allows the individual to bookmark key parts of the discussion group as he is recording. The recording can be made by an Apple iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Future releases will be made on Android and Word platforms.

The iOS device can be used with a directional microphone which is connected to the device using Conversor’s iOS adapter cable. This is a Y-cable with an earphone socket for playback and a microphone socket for recording.

Conversor Pro can be used as a wireless microphone using an adapter cable plugged into the Conversor Pro Receiver. The transmitter is placed next to the speaker and the Conversor Pro Recorder controlled by the listener.

To amplify the recording from an iPhone or iPad connect the device to a Conversor Pro or Listenor Pro with headphones or an inductive neck loop as above.

TV Hearing Aid

Use a Conversor TV hearing aid to watch TV or listen to music on your iPad, PC or radio without disturbing your loved ones or neighbours. We understand that if you are hard of hearing, you often struggle to catch television’s fast-paced dialogue. Although we know that captioning is a great help, hearing is preferred to reading captions.

If you have hearing loss you may have a simple way to cope with the challenges of TV listening: by turning up the volume. This, however, has two problems. First, the sound you find most comfortable tends to be irritatingly loud to spouses and family members. Second, louder sound isn’t necessarily clearer sound.

The most effective way to listen to the television is to use a TV hearing aid such as Conversor Pro or TV Pro. Connect the Conversor Pro microphone transmitter or the TV Pro transmitter to the television SCART or phono socket, and the sound for other viewers is left untouched. The transmitter then sends the sound directly from the television to a Conversor Pro receiver worn around the neck. This then connects wirelessly with the Telecoil or T program in the hearing aid, or alternatively can be used with headphones or earphones. For best results use good quality headphones, or custom-fit earmoulds with the earphones. You have your own personal volume control on the Conversor Pro receiver which you can adjust without affecting the volume for anyone else in the room.

Listenor Pro is a wired solution for listening to the television. It is ideal for people with a mild to moderate hearing loss where it is only the relative sound volume which requires adjustment.

Drive Safely

The noise of tyres on the road, wind and the buzz of traffic can make listening to your fellow travellers almost impossible if you have any degree of hearing loss whilst driving. Using a Conversor Pro can help in this situation. The driver wears the Conversor Pro receiver and uses it with a hearing aid, headphones or earphones. The microphone can be passed around the passengers, or worn by a sole companion using the Conversor Pro neck lanyard. You won’t need to turn to the person who is speaking to try and lip read and can keep your eyes firmly fixed on the road ahead.

Enjoy Your Tour

Don’t miss out when taking a tour; ensure you can hear the tour guide clearly even from the back of the group.

There may be one or more hard of hearing participants in a tour guide group. Many people struggle in these situations even with perfect hearing. This is because of the high level of background noise at most tour venues, poor acoustics at the location and noise or other participants talking between the tour guide and the listener. On many occasions the tour guide also has to raise their voice to be heard.

Whether the participant has hearing loss or not, Conversor Pro multipack system can help. The tour guide wears the Conversor Pro transmitter and speaks normally. Individuals with normal hearing or mild hearing loss can be provided with a Conversor Pro receiver and headphones, whilst the hearing aid wearer can just switch his hearing aid to Telecoil or T-setting.

Conversor Pro can be used indoors or outside, so is ideal for a tour guide with multiple locations.

Individuals can be up to 50 metres from the speaker indoors and up to 100 metres outdoors.

Here Comes The Judge

Whether witness, counsel or the judge, if you have hearing loss the courtroom can be a difficult place to hear clearly.

The courtroom can be a daunting place at the best of times, but for the hard of hearing it can be almost impossible to hear everyone who speaks. There are matters of a serious nature being discussed and debated, many of which are of a technical nature and require complete clarity for the listener to comprehend. At times where opposing counsel are vying for attention there will be several people speaking at the same time, making it all the more confusing for the listener who is hard of hearing. Whether juror, judge, counsel or defendant it can sometimes be impossible to follow the thread of a complex argument in court, and some assistance is required.

Solution 1

Using a Conversor Pro assistive listening device can help in the courtroom for an individual with mild hearing loss, to help them hear a number of speakers by switching the microphone transmitter to directional mode and pointing it at the person speaking. This is fine if the court is relatively small and the room acoustics are good.

Solution 2

Using a Conversor Pro multichannel receiver with up to three Conversor Pro transmitters and one or more Conversor Pro receivers. Each transmitter can be placed next to the judge, and worn by defending and prosecution counsel or the witness to enable the key speakers to be heard by the participant who has hearing loss. If there is more than one participant who requires assistance, additional receivers can be deployed to work with the Conversor Pro multichannel receiver.

The Disability Discrimination Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act require courts to take steps to ensure that communication with people with disabilities is as effective as communication with others by providing assistive devices and services.

No More Competing for the Volume!

How often have you been unable to sit in the television room because the volume is set too low? Your fellow residents don’t wear hearing aids and don’t need any assistance, which can cause disputes when it comes to setting the volume. The way to overcome this is by using a Conversor Pro multipack.

Solution 1

Use Conversor Pro and point the microphone transmitter towards the television. This allows you to adjust the volume on your Conversor Pro receiver until the volume reaches the level at which you can hear clearly.

Solution 2

If it is a large room and there are a lot of residents in the room you may need to plug the transmitter into the television using the SCART leads supplied. This will not affect the volume of the television and you can adjust your own volume on the Conversor Pro receiver to suit your requirements.

Hear the Teacher’s Voice Clearly

Listening to a teacher in the classroom can be very difficult if you’re hard of hearing. The average ambient noise level is around 70dB at these venues. The noise between the speaker and the listener and poor room acoustics can contribute to a diffuse and often unintelligible sound even if you are wearing hearing aids.

Solution 1

Use Conversor Pro with the microphone set to directional mode – this focuses on the voice of the person speaking. The teacher uses the microphone transmitter on directional mode and can hold it as a normal microphone, wear it around their neck on a lanyard or place on the table in front of them. Alternatively, if the pupil is sitting in the front row of the class the pupil can hold the microphone transmitter and point it towards the teacher or another pupil who may be asking a question.

Conversor Pro can be used with hearing aids set to the T or Telecoil setting, with one or two earbuds or with a set of headphones. When used with headphones Conversor devices can amplify the sound source sufficiently to help the listener. With a hearing aid the aid will do most of the amplification and match the sound to compensate for the type of hearing loss you suffer from. In this mode, the Conversor Pro acts as a communication device which significantly reduces ambient and background noise.

Solution 2

The Listenor Pro is an amplified listening device which has an omni-directional microphone fitted as standard, but can be used with a directional microphone for focussing on a particular speaker’s voice. Listenor Pro can be used with headphones or earbud(s) or an inductive loop for wireless connection to the hearing aid. This is only effective for small groups or rooms where the speaker is no more than 5 metres away from the microphone and the pupil is sitting in the front rows of the classroom.

Solution 3

For older pupils the lesson can be recorded using a directional microphone and a voice recorder allowing the listener to concentrate on the speaker and understand what is being said using either a Conversor Pro or a Listenor Pro. If there are any gaps in understanding, these can be addressed later by reviewing the audio recording. The Conversor Pro Recorder allows the individual to bookmark key parts of the discussion group as they are recording.

Solution 4

Conversor Pro can be used as a wireless microphone using an adapter cable plugged into the Conversor Pro receiver. The microphone transmitter is placed next to the speaker and the Conversor Pro Recorder controlled by the listener. The pupil can wear a second Conversor Pro receiver to hear the teacher speaking.
