Listen Technologies has introduced iDSP (Intelligent Digital Signal Processing), a new line of assistive listening products.
In creating iDSP, Listen Technologies focused on the user experience and ease of dispensing, inventory management and battery management at the venue, based upon input from consultants, system integrators, venue owners, and end users.
The result is an improved listening experience, including an integrated neck loop/lanyard; streamlined dispensing, collecting and care; and environmentally friendly advanced battery technology.
The iDSP 72 MHz receiver offers precise clarity with 20 dB less hiss than other RF receivers. The new integrated neck loop improves the experience for people who have hearing aids and cochlear implants with telecoils.
Sleek and small (smaller than an iPhone), the iDSP receiver has a field-replaceable, non-proprietary rechargeable lithium-ion battery, making obsolete the use of alkaline and NiMH batteries. Battery life is 8 hours, with a 2.5-hour charge time.
Two versions of the receiver are available: LR-4200-072 Intelligent DSP RF Receiver (72 MHz) and LR-5200-072 Advanced Intelligent DSP RF Receiver (72 MHz). The LR-5200 Advanced Receiver features the ability for end users to select multiple channels for applications such as language interpretation.
System components include the charging tray, which can be mounted in several ways; charging case; optional cable management system; earphones (foamless, solving certain sanitary issues); log book; setup/inventory software; and signage.
