Beltone New England will carry Turtle Beach’s new hearing product in their locations across the east coast when it becomes available. Planned to launch this fall, HyperSound Clear is a home entertainment listening product that has been shown to significantly improve sound clarity and speech intelligibility for people with hearing loss.

“HyperSound Clear’s ability to direct a focused beam of audio toward a specific person is simply amazing,” said Michael Andreozzi, CEO of Beltone New England. “The sound quality and ability to program a person’s specific hearing profile into the system makes it truly a unique offering for people with hearing loss. As someone with hearing loss, I’ve personally experienced the enhanced hearing environment HyperSound Clear creates, and we are so happy to be able to carry it in our 120 office locations up and down the east coast.”

He said the company sees HyperSound Clear as a gateway product for someone who may be just starting to lose their hearing but isn’t quite yet ready to wear hearing aids.

HyperSound Clear is Turtle Beach’s directed audio solution for individuals with hearing loss. HyperSound technology is a new approach to sound delivery that generates a directional, narrow beam of audio in the air, much the way a flashlight directs a beam of light. HyperSound Clear works in parallel with the audio from the TV or home theater system, so when the person with hearing loss is sitting in the HyperSound beam, they experience immersive, 3D audio, while everyone else in the same room hears audio from the TV speakers or home theater system at a normal volume level.
