WEAR: Revolutionary Assistive Listening Device (ALD)

For many individuals who are hard of hearing, conversations in loud environments can be more challenging if not impossible.  While many hearing aids will increase the volume of near conversation, they’ll also increase volume of ambient noise.  The Wear from ActiVocal will change this.

The Wear is a Revolutionary Assistive Listening Device or ALD.  More specifically, it is an assistive listening device designed for the individual who is experiencing hearing loss and wants to have conversations in noisy environments (e.g. restaurants, meetings, etc.)

It is the smallest high-quality amplifier measuring only 2″ in diameter by 1/4″ deep.  The Wear works by amplifying sound directly within the circular zone, about 5-6 feet in front of the user, while reducing noise outside of this zone.
