Swampscott, United States (PRWEB UK) 14 November 2017
A recent survey showed that 13 % of the English population suffer from some level of hearing loss, and The RNID (a charitable organisation working on behalf of the UK's deaf and hard of hearing people) has concluded that 9 million UK residents suffer from some type of hearing impairment. As the UK’s Baby Boomer generation ages, the problem is sure to get worse before it gets better. Add to this, the tiny sound systems built into flat-screen TVs and you get an epidemic of older Britons that have trouble understanding voices on their favourite TV shows.
A company based in Boston, Massachusetts called ZVOX has the ideal solution: The new AccuVoice® TV Speaker is a compact aluminum TV speaker that features built-in hearing aid technology. AccuVoice uses advanced digital circuitry that analyses a soundtrack, and when it detects dialogue it instantly activates computer algorithms to lift voices out of background noise, making them easy to understand, even at low volume levels. Affordably priced at £249, the AccuVoice speaker is scheduled to launch this week in the United Kingdom -- available only on amazon.com.uk. And with only one connecting wire and a one-page owner’s manual, it’s easy to hook up and easy to use. Already popular in the U.S., AccuVoice has garnered over 870 Amazon reviews with an average 4.4 star rating – and is consistently ranked as a top-10 best seller on the Amazon U.S. site.

The AccuVoice TV Speaker by ZVOX is a welcome advancement for everyone who loves watching TV shows, football and movies, especially Baby Boomers who want to continue their enjoyment of home theatre even with a touch of hearing loss.
A History of Innovation
In 2004, ZVOX introduced the ZVOX 315, a system CNET called the first commercially successful sound bar. The company followed up in 2008 with the ZVOX 550 -- the world's first SoundBase style home theatre system. Frustrated with the growing crisis of incomprehensible TV dialogue, ZVOX set out to create a feature to un-muddle the dialogue heard through TV programming. In 2012, the company introduced the AccuVoice feature -- which uses hearing aid technology to make voices clear, even at low volumes. With incredible feedback from consumers and reviewers alike, ZVOX took their mission to another level by creating the Accuvoice speaker, designed for the aging baby boomer generation with hearing loss. Working with audiologists and bringing their expertise in engineers, the speaker launched in the US in the Fall of 2016.
