What Is An Assistive Listening Device (ALD)?

Assistive Listening Devices For TV.
A common variety of assisted listening device is designed to be connected to a TV to allow the viewer to better understand dialogue. Traditionally these devices consist of a device connected to the TV that send signals wirelessly to a set of heaphones. But recently a different type of TV assisted listening device has evolved -- the ALD speaker. The best Assistive Listening Device speakers use digital algorithms to remove speech from the TV soundtrack, and then manipulate the voices to make them more clear. The two primary benefits of Assistive Listening Device speakers are: 1) everyone in the room benefits from the improved sound quality and voice clarity and 2) they avoid the "ear fatigue" often brought on by headphones after 20-60 minutes of listening.
