Mobile Wireless Headsets for the Hearing Impaired

Assistive listening devices for going out to movies, theaters, and other public venues

Williams Sound PKTD1N01 Pocketalker Ultra system with neckloop Lesley G. asks:

I am trying to find a wireless headset for my father who has a hearing aid but needs something that he can use when going to movies, plays, etc. Do you carry a wireless, mobile headset?

AudioMan answers:

Lesley, your dad's problem is a common one. Many theaters and movie houses have assistive listening devices (ALDs) in the form of infrared headsets like the Sennheiser systems that you see on our list of featured manufacturers. However, they can be uncomfortable and less effective when used in tandem with a hearing aid. Neckloop receivers, which are worn around the neck, work in tandem with telecoil hearing aids but aren't universally available everywhere that provides ALDs.

It seems to me that your dad needs something small and light enough to be able to carry in his pocket, use it when the situation arises (at the movies, for instance), and then put it away - without having to remove or otherwise mess with his hearing aid.

The Williams Sound Pocketalker Ultra with neckloop is a great little device that will work just about anywhere, even in places that don't have hearing assistance systems set up. The Pocketalker Ultra and Pocketalker Pro by Williams Sound also come with a variety of headsets that can be used by people who are hearing impaired but who do not require hearing aids.

The Williams Sound Pocketalker has a sensitive microphone that reduces background noise while amplifying what you want to hear. The adjustable volume control will help your father make sure he hears everything without getting his eardrums blown out. And the neckloop works with telecoil hearing aids, so he won't have to wear a headset.

The Pocketalker Ultra is small enough so your father can take it wherever he goes. It runs on two AAA batteries, which will give you about 100 hours of use. This is a product that sounds ideal for your stated needs.
