ZVOX, one of the world’s most innovative audio companies, solved a common problem faced by millions of aging baby boomers who suffer from hearing loss – the inability to clearly understand dialog on their favorite TV programs. The company’s AccuVoice™ TV Speaker AV200 uses built-in hearing aid technology to deliver super-clear TV and movie dialog, even at low volumes. ZVOX’s patented AccuVoice™ technology utilizes an advanced digital processor to analyze a show’s soundtrack. When it detects dialog, the sound bar instantly activates computer algorithms that bring voices forward where they can be easily understood.

ZVOX CEO Tom Hannaher said: “Hearing loss is a major issue in our society, with over 95 million aging baby boomers in the U.S. suffering from some level of hearing impairment. Boomers are the first generation to grow up with loud rock music, which has created an epidemic of hearing loss. Our AV200 speaker uses hearing aid technology paired with our revolutionary AccuVoice™ system to help viewers attain the maximum enjoyment out of all their TV programming, including movies, TV shows and sports. The result is sound that allows most hearing impaired people to understand dialog, with absolutely no negative effect on the overall soundtrack.”

Finally Hear TV Dialog Clearly, Even If You Suffer Some Hearing Loss
Though many aging boomers suffer some hearing loss, there are other reasons why TV dialog is difficult to understand. First, today’s flat screen TVs are simply not big enough to house decent speaker systems. In fact, TV sound is so bad, even people with perfect hearing often have difficulty understanding dialog. Second, the audio mix on many of today’s special effects-heavy movies and TV shows has become overpowering, resulting in garbled dialog. Conventional hearing aids can’t solve the problem because they don’t actually improve TV sound. With its hearing aid technology, the AV200 TV Speaker uses a combination of dynamic compression and equalization to bring vocals forward while minimizing interference from other sounds. The system detects when dialog is present in a soundtrack and instantly activates the AccuVoice™ feature. It also instantly turns off when dialog disappears, minimizing interference with non-dialog aspects of a soundtrack.

The AccuVoice™ TV Speaker AV200 is a product whose time has definitely come – perfect for everyone who loves watching TV shows, sports and movies
Only 17” wide, the AV200 is housed in a sleek and compact aluminum cabinet, delivering its room-filling home theater with only one connecting wire. With a one-page owner’s manual, it’s easy to hook up and easy to use. The AV200 is available at ZVOX.com and typically sells for just $199.99, but from now until mid-June it is available for $179.99.
