Note: BeHear ACCESS Model II headsets are not hearing aids and are not designed to restore hearing.
BeHear ACCESS is a stylish hearing amplifier for people who need enhanced hearing in specific situations. It looks (and functions) like a typical Bluetooth stereo headset but also provides enhancement for all around hearing (live conversations, mobile phone calls, music play, ambient hearing), as well as assistive listening functionality.

Built-in Telecoil receivers ensure best possible hearing in locales equipped with hearing loop technology.

The ability to emphasize high- or low-pitched sounds, directly from the headset
Customizable tinnitus masking therapy
BeHear ACCESS utilizes sound processing technologies developed by Alango Technologies, Ltd. over the past two decades, such as:

ListenThrough ? passing through important ambient sounds during music playback
EasyListen ? slowing down speech dynamically during mobile phone conversations
Personal Sound Amplifier ? providing dynamic, compressed amplification of ambient sounds
SoundFocus ? three options for determining directionality of hearing amplification (narrow, wide, omni) based on the desire to focus on a specific sound source, or a broader range
Tinnitus Masking: Reduce discomfort with built-in, customizable random noise generation technology
Hearing Enhancement Functions ? including tone control, noise reduction, echo cancellation, and more
CROS/BiCROS ? support for single-sided deafness

The BeHear ACCESS assistive hearing headset belongs to a new category of sound enhancement products. It combines the functionality of three existing devices into one:

Bluetooth stereo headset for wireless mobile phone calls and media playback
Assistive hearing device for enhanced intelligibility of speech and other important sounds
Digital hearing aid for personalized sound amplification across a wide sound spectrum, and tinnitus masking noise generation

Situational Hearing Enhancement:
When You Need It
BeHear ACCESS can enhance hearing for those with normal hearing, as well as people with mild to moderately severe hearing loss. This is true for all situations:

In-person conversations
Mobile phone conversations
Video calls and conferences (Zoom, Facetime, Skype, etc.)
Music/audio streaming
Television viewing
Movies, theater and concert performances
Outdoors, in nature
BeHear ACCESS enhances live hearing
These profiles can be modified in real-time, based on the current sound environment and preferences, using the W&H BeHear mobile application. For example:

Sound Focus for Better Understanding of Speech in Noise
BeHear ACCESS supports three degrees of directionality, or sound focus: narrow, wide, and omni. Narrow focuses on the area directly in front of the face, Wide amplifies important sounds in a 180 degree half-circle in front of the wearer, and Omni collects important sounds from all directions.

Alleviating the My Voice Echoes Perception
A typical downside of wearing a pair of earbuds is the occlusion effect; a perceived echo of your own voice when your ear canal is sealed. A four-step slider in the W&H BeHear app allows you to control how much you hear yourself when wearing the BeHear ACCESS headset.
