BeHear® NOW is a personalizable Bluetooth stereo headset that provides enhancement for all-around hearing (for phone calls, audio play, and ambient hearing), as well as assistive listening functionality. BeHear NOW can be tuned to address your specific hearing capabilities for all applications, such as voice communication via mobile phone, listening to music, etc.
The BeHear NOW assistive hearing headset belongs to a new category of sound enhancement products. It combines the functionality of three existing devices into one:

- Digital hearing aid for personalized sound amplification across a wide sound spectrum
Situational Hearing Enhancement:

BeHer NOW can enhance hearing for those with normal hearing, as well as people with mild to moderate hearing loss. This is true for all situations:
- In-person conversations
- Mobile phone conversations

- Television viewing
- Movies, theater and concert performances
- Outdoors, in nature
Customizable for Your Hearing Capabilities and Preferences
The headset itself includes a variety of controls to manage its hearing functions, which work “out of the box” for four different hearing profiles:

These profiles can be modified in real-time, based on the current sound environment and the wearer’s preferences, using the W&H BeHear mobile application. The application also includes:
A self-administered personal hearing assessment for automatic adjustment of the sound in each of the operational modes: ambient hearing, phone calls, and audio play
- Direct access to the video tutorials library
- An option to set the balance between left and right ears

The W&H BeHear application can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store or Apple Store.
Appreciate Music to the Fullest, Hearing Every Note
Although your hearing may not be classified as impaired by the medical community, it is a proven fact that most people lose the ability to hear the full spectrum of sound as they get older. This reduction in the ability to process sounds at various spectra diminishes your hearing enjoyment, especially when listening to music. Hearing aids, developed specifically to improve the ability to hear spoken language, cannot help you overcome this deficiency since they typically support frequencies of up to only 5KHz. BeHear supports up to 12 KHz, greatly enhancing the listening experience at live concerts. Streamed music via Bluetooth audio (from music players, mobile phones, remote microphones, or remote TV transmitters) can be also be personalized for your hearing preferences and capabilities.
Converse Freely; No Need to Ask for Repetition
BeHear includes four separate microphones for hearing enhancement and clarity of voice conversations. Beamforming technology in BeHear improves identification and isolation of your voice, no matter in which direction you move your head. Its multi-microphone technology feeds intelligent algorithms that cancel out unimportant noise. The result: improved intelligibility of spoken language.
Enjoy a Consistently Comfortable Hearing Experience
Whether you are conversing in person or on the phone, or listening to music, let your ears hear the important sounds while disregarding distracting noise. With BeHear technology, ambient, low-frequency noises are reduced – through active noise cancellation technology – while high frequency sounds are enhanced. With BeHear you avoid having to increase the volume to counter environmental noise, such as a car’s engine, or irrelevant conversations. It monitors and processes the incoming sounds in real-time, ensuring a comfortable hearing experience that actively enhances your hearing based on the environment.
Increase Your Hearing Comprehension on the Phone
Hearing comprehension on your mobile phone tends to degenerate when listening to “fast talkers” and foreign languages. It is further complicated due to the lack of the visual cues provided by body language. Deciphering recorded messages on your phone is also a challenge. BeHear employs a technology that can help. It’s called EasyListen™, and works real-time to dynamically slow down incoming speech, whether in a live phone conversation or from a recorded message, making it more natural and understandable while maintaining a natural conversation flow.
Designed for Usability, Comfort and Day-Long Use
BeHear features a lightweight neck loop design with a variety of comfortable ear buds to suit your personal anatomy. The battery is designed to last throughout your waking hours. Wear the BeHear neck loop all day, and then charge the long-life battery while you sleep. Vibration alerts give you added cues to incoming phone calls and device states (power off/on, Bluetooth pairing, charging connection).
