New TV Ears TV includes built-in transmitter, wireless TV headset for better listening, easy-to-use remote control, and automatic shut-off technology.

TV Ears, a manufacturer of doctor recommended TV listening devices, has unveiled the first ever Senior-Friendly LCD high definition television at the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show this week.

The 32-inch HDTV set includes a built-in transmitter and wireless TV headset to help those with hearing loss hear the TV clearly without turning up the volume, an easy-to-use, color-coded remote control device, and an automatic shut-off feature that engages after four hours of inactivity.

“This system offers a good alternative for helping those who have trouble hearing the dialogue on their favorite show. With this wireless TV listening device technology, you set your own TV Ears volume and tone while others listen to the television volume at their own level. In doing so, we'll bring back the family TV viewing experience for everyone in the home!" said George Dennis, Founder and CEO of TV Ears.

"We wanted to provide a state-of-the-art TV experience for seniors who don’t have the desire to fumble with all the buttons and settings required to watch a mainstream high definition television, “ Dennis also said. The senior friendly TV remote control can program up to 30 favorite channels and will work with cable or satellite set top boxes. The easy-to-use TV Ears Remote comes with six buttons, including favorite channels, mute button and last channel button. Sliding down the cover also offers access to a full 0 thru 9 touch pad so users can go directly to any channel.

"We also wanted the set to be trouble-free and energy efficient, so we included a feature that automatically turns the television off if the volume or channel has not been changed for four consecutive hours, figuring that the person watching has left the room or fallen asleep."

Additionally, the TV Ears TV provides extra large screen text for easier viewing, and comes with the company's "White Glove" specialty service that includes delivery with complete hook-up, programming and one-on-one instruction service of the TV and associated TV Ears Headset by a knowledgeable and friendly technician. Customers can also call a toll-free telephone number for assistance after their purchase.

The set will be available for purchase in March 2010 on the TV Ears Web site, through select audiology dealers and at specialty retailers. The Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is $1199.00. More information is available at
