Every reviewer basically said there is no denying this mini sound bar will make TV dialogue sound clearer. Even though it’s especially designed for older people with hearing problems, anyone would notice its improved voice clarity.

4.5 out of 5 stars
The ZVOX AccuVoice TV Speaker definitely delivers what it promises - Clear voice reproduction is a godsend not only for those that may have varying degrees of hearing impairment, but those that are just simply bugged by TV, DVD, and Blu-ray discs that have vocal tracks that are just too subdued.

·
A great investment for those may have hearing loss or just have trouble hearing dialog when watching TV. It is compact, easy to use, and does an incredible job at enhancing voices on TV while really making them stand out from background noise. Read full review →

I noticed a difference in a majority of what I watched. There was an increase in clarity in the audio. It doesn't just make everything louder (it does have better sound than the television alone), but sharpens the vocals. Read full review →

Overall, if you or someone you know are complaining to anyone in the room that you can't hear what 'they are saying' on television, then the Accuvoice speaker is the perfect addition to your home entertainment system. Read full review →

★★★★★★★★★★

3.8 out of 5 stars
The Accuvoice tries to separate itself by targeting people with hearing loss. The result is sound that's less well-rounded than its competitors, especially for music listening. The Accuvoice focuses primarily on the human voice, and does it well. Read full review →
·
Even with the Accuvoice technology turned off, the sound is markedly better with the sound bar than direct from my TV. Overall, the ZVOX Accuvoice AV200 TV Speaker clearly lived up to its claim of more understandable dialogue. Read full review →
·
I would definitely recommend the ZVOX AccuVoice TV Speaker to anyone who has a hearing loss, or has normal hearing but still has difficulty understanding their TV. Even if you “think” you have no hearing issues, the improved clarity will prevent you from habitually turning the volume up louder. Read full review →
