What a wonderful aide to hearing. Before the TV used to blast us out of the house. My wife, hopefully, has a temporary hearing loss. The Audio-Range enables us to hear the TV plus it also can act as a hearing aid to amply conversations away from the TV just by pushing a microphone button. In fact you can listen to the TV by using the microphone, although any other noise or conversation will impact the reception. It is great to use even if you don't have a hearing problem. We enjoy it greatly.
