We aspire to bring affordable, enhanced hearing to all.

Alango Technologies, Ltd. is a leading supplier of voice and audio enhancement technologies for the communication and entertainment markets.

To this aim, Alango is launching BeHear™ NOW, the first concept product in Alango’s “Wear & Hear” line of assistive listening products. It combines the functionality of a digital hearing aid, Bluetooth stereo headset and assistive listening device. It delivers affordable and personalizable quality hearing, simply.

BeHear is designed to help people with mild to moderate hearing loss hear better in all environments: indoors, outdoors, phone calls, recorded music, live concerts, etc.

  • BeHear is designed to help people with mild to moderate hearing loss hear better in all environments: indoors, outdoors, phone calls, recorded music, live concerts, etc.

    BeHear is an effective alternative to traditional hearing aids. It is not a medical device, but it includes almost all the same digital hearing enhancement technologies found in hearing aids. Alango has been refining these technologies over the past 15 years.

    BeHear will be available for purchase shortly. It will be sold for less than $200 through various distribution channels, such as audiology clinics, convenience store pharmacies, and Amazon.

    Instead of making the device as small as possible, which hearing aid manufacturers do to overcome the stigma associated with hearing aids, we embed our hearing enhancement technology into a lightweight neck-loop style Bluetooth headset, which has plenty of room for a long-life battery and powerful processor. By definition, it connects to a wide range of devices: cell phones, music players, laptops, etc.

    BeHear integrates binaural processing with multi-channel dynamic range compressor, noise reduction and acoustic feedback cancellation. Unlike traditional hearing aids, whose frequency range is limited to human speech, BeHear incorporates high quality speakers that deliver the full spectrum of human hearing, including live music.

    BeHear comes with several predefined profiles that enable many people to benefit from it virtually “out of the box”. It can be personalized for specific hearing capabilities and preferences, in real time, by the user.

    The BeHear headset communicates via Bluetooth with our mobile app that includes a hearing test. You test each ear for six different frequencies and the results are automatically applied to create your personalized profiles. These profiles can be fine-tuned in real time to achieve the best personal hearing experience.

    BeHear includes many features designed to enhance hearing in general:

    • EasyListen™ improves the intelligibility of phone conversation and recorded messages by slowing down the incoming speech.
    • ListenThrough™ enables full enjoyment of music while allowing important sounds – and only important sounds – to pass through. Unwanted noises are filtered out.
    • BeHear can be paired with a TV transmitter that delivers sound wirelessly from the television to the BeHear headset and then, customized for the user’s hearing preferences, directly to the user’s ears.

    This is the first product in the Wear & Hear line of personalized hearing products. We call it BeHear NOW!
