OLD LYME, CONNECTICUT: Sennheiser has introduced the Set 810 Personal TV Listening System, a personal assistive listening environment for people who want to listen to the television or to music wirelessly. With approximately ten percent of the U.S. population suffering from some degree of hearing loss, the system is designed for seniors and the hard of hearing, as well as anyone who simply wishes to enjoy listening to audio entertainment without disturbing others.

The unique Set 810 Personal TV Listening System includes many features not previously available with ordinary TV listening systems. Easy to install and easy to use, the Set 810 system comprises an infrared transmitter, switchable between stereo and mono operation, and a wireless stethoset listening device with a large, easy-to-use volume control for level adjustments. The ergonomic, adjustable ear bows of the Set 810 listening device ensure a perfect fit every time, while the stethoset’s compression drivers attenuate loud programming, such as commercials, and boosts soft passages for a more even audio level and better speech intelligibility. The system automatically turns on and off, so there’s no dial to manipulate and users never have to remember to turn it off.

In operation, the transmitter is simply connected to the audio output socket of any television or audio source, such as a hi-fi system. The system features switchable stereo or mono operation for total integration with any sound source. The Set 810 additionally includes as standard a Sennheiser MKE800-TV external microphone (a $49 value) for use where an audio output socket is not available, offering even more value at the same price of $229 as earlier versions of the system.

The transmitter incorporates a charging cradle and a separate compartment for a spare battery, so two batteries can be charged simultaneously. The charging cradle includes a quick charge feature so that the receiver battery can be ready for use in three hours.

Sennheiser’s Denise Lavoie, business manager, audiology, observes, “During initial testing, users consistently tell us how much the Set 810 Personal Listening System has improved their quality of life. Right now is the perfect time to install a system, as the winter months have a way of keeping people indoors watching more television. With 28 million Americans experiencing some degree of hearing loss, everyone knows someone – a family member or perhaps a neighbor – who could benefit from this system.”

Please note that infrared systems are not designed for use with plasma television screens.

Established in 1945 in Wedemark, Germany, Sennheiser is the acknowledged world leader in microphone technology, RF-wireless and infrared sound transmission, headphone transducer technology, and most recently, in the development of active noise-cancellation. Sennheiser Electronic Corporation is the U.S. wholly owned subsidiary, with headquarters in Old Lyme, Connecticut.
