Hearing Impairment Isn’t Just For Old People Anymore.

Posted by Tom Hannaher , Friday, March 29, 2013

According to a recent New York Times report, 12-15% of school age children have hearing loss. (If you don’t believe this, ask a 12 year old to clean his room.) It turns out that aging doesn’t cause hearing loss – cumulative exposure to loud sounds does. Amped-up earbud headphones, lawnmowers, mega-concerts and hair dryers are among the biggest culprits.
The good news is that the DE (Dialog Emphasis) feature in ZVOX systems really does help people with hearing impairment. DE – also known as ClearVoice™ – uses hearing aid technology to makes voices super-clear and understandable.   
A side benefit is that, with the DE feature engaged, you don't have to turn the volume up so loud to hear voices clearly -- so there will be less detrimental effect on your hearing ability going forward!
