The Crescendo Personal Listening System is a battery-powered unit that receives sound via its sensitive built in microphone, and then amplifies that sound to the way you like to listen. It's an excellent communication tool helping to boost volume and tone levels. The Crescendo Personal Listening System is perfect for someone hard of hearing to get the help they need to hear conversations – particularly those who don’t wish to wear a hearing aid.
Being lightweight, the Crescendo is easy to take around with you; and so easy to use. Put on the headphones, switch on the amplifier (a green light on the unit shows it’s powered on) and adjust the volume and/or tone control to your requirements. The maximum amplification on the unit is an impressive 43dB; which is sufficient to allow those with up to a moderate-severe hearing loss to benefit from such a system.
Another benefit for those not wearing hearing aids is the Crescendo’s built-in inductive coil that allows the headphones to ‘connect’ up to induction loops within many public buildings such as theatres and churches that usually only cater for hearing aid wearers with a ‘T’ programme. Listening via the induction loop has the huge advantage of cutting out all background noise within the venue and it is also not usually essential to sit near to the front of a stage or podium.
The Crescendo Personal Listening System basic’ system is packaged with the following:
