No hearing amplifier on the market today compares to the sound quality, ease of use, personalization, or overall functionality of the BeHear SMARTO. Designed specifically for those who need significant amplification with minimum hassle, SMARTO delivers what users need most: a simple way to stay connected to the conversation.
Directional microphones for conversation focus
One of the biggest complaints of those with hearing loss is the inability to follow conversation in noisy places. With the press of a button, the beam forming function in SMARTO zeroes in on sound coming from a specific direction. Users can choose to focus on the speech of a specific person or group of people by simply pointing SMARTO in the relevant direction and selecting either narrow or omni focus.
Bluetooth connection for mobile calls and audio streaming
Once it is paired with a smartphone SMARTO can be used to handle cell phone calls and audio play of music, podcasts, conference calls, etc. The phone can be placed nearby in a pocket or purse, or remain on a table (it no longer needs to be hand-held). Functions such as accept/reject/end call, volume up/down, and treble/bass tone control are supported via the buttons on the face of the SMARTO device. This greatly simplifies communication with and for the user.
Enjoy clear and crisp dialogue in television shows
Much more than a personalized amplifier, support for Qualcomm apt-X low latency audio streaming transforms it into an ideal TV listening system as well. The user will no longer need to crank up the television volume in order to understand what is being said.
Single-press emergency call button
If the user falls or is incapacitated in any other way, s/he can press and hold the CALL button on SMARTO to initiate a call to a pre-defined number. This makes it easy for the wearer to get assistance and gives family members built-in peace of mind.
The optional SMARTO function lock avoids accidental operation. Particularly useful for those with dexterity issues, or dementia, via the BeHear app it is possible to determine which SMARTO features are activated/deactivated. This will avoid confusion and frustration on the part of the user.
Hear better, even in challenging situations
Hearing and understanding speech is much more difficult if the speaker has his/her back turned, is in a different room, or is wearing a mask. SMARTO overcomes these hearing challenges with its sensitive microphones, noise reduction technology, and speech clarification abilities.
If you experience a continuous or spontaneous ringing, roaring, or other internal noise in your ears, you are most likely suffering from tinnitus. One sound therapy that has proven effective in easing tinnitus symptoms is called “masking.” This involves creating an artificial sound that masks your tinnitus to make it less bothersome.
The key to successful masking is to create a sound that matches the phantom sound you are hearing. Since you are in the best position to personalize the masking sound yourself, we give you simple and intuitive tools to adjust the pitch, sharpness, volume, and modulation of the masking sound.
Once you have customized the masking sound using the BeHear app, you can activate and deactivate it directly from the BeHear SMARTO device.
