Even when we wear our hearing aids it can be a real chore trying to listen to the television. Background noise or someone else talking in the same room can be very off-putting. A good quality wireless tv listening device could be the solution for you.
Who will this device work for?
The Amplicomms TV 2510 – NL Wireless TV Listener is designed and manufactured for people who wear hearing aids. It enables you to listen to the tv through the telecoil or “T” setting on your hearing aid rather than just through the tv volume itself.
It is worth noting here that those with cochlear implants may also be able to use this device as many of these implants now come equipped with the “T” function.
It is designed to block out all other background sounds so that you can listen to the television with clarity and without disruption. The Amplicomms TV 2510 – NL can also be used in an office setting or even a school and will allow the user a top quality listening experience.
How does the Amplicomms wireless tv listener work?
The device connects to your television (or other connected devices) wirelessly. If you want to connect to a digital tv then you will require a Toslink/F05 cable and your output device (tv) must be equipped with an optical output.
Once connected you simply turn your hearing aids to the telecoil or “T” setting and you can begin to enjoy virtually guaranteed high-quality surround sound. The device will block out background sounds and the only thing you will hear is the programme you want to listen to.
One of the best features of this upgraded model and what sets it apart from most of the other tv listeners on the market is the new built-in microphone. You have the option of switching the microphone on if you want to hear what someone in the room is saying and then simply switch it off again to go back to the tv sound.
What are the main features of the TV 2510 – NL
Without wanting to get too technical here, the list of features of this model is very impressive. A sample of what is available is
Completely wireless – easy plug-and-play connection
Mute sound source when surrounding microphone is activated
3.5mm output in the receiver for optional connection of Ear Phones /Head Phones allowing Stereo sound transmission through the receiver
2.4 GHz Digital UHF Transmission through walls and ceiling

Who should buy the Amplicomms TV 2510 – NL Wireless TV Listener?
If you are like me and wear hearing aids but still struggle to hear the television if there is background noise or if someone else is talking in the room then this device is ideal for you.
I currently have the previous model (the NL 2410) and the sound quality is fantastic. I can also connect it to my mobile phone and when someone calls I get their voice directly from my hearing aid.
My older model does not have the built-in microphone feature, which means if I am watching tv and someone speaks to me I have to mute the tv, turn off the “T” setting on my hearing aid, answer them and then turn everything back on again. With this new model all that is simply done with the flick of a switch.
If you know someone who wears hearing aids and want to give them the very best experience in tv listening then this is the perfect device for them. Another key point when buying through Hearing Direct is their full 30-day money back guarantee. It allows you to try the product and if for any reason you don’t want to keep it then simply send it back for a full refund.
