You don’t know what you’re missing – how to hear more in the workplace
Hearing at work can be a challenge for anyone and if you have a hearing loss it’s even harder, from open plan office designs to meetings around board room tables or hearing on the telephone.
The Bellman Domino PRO is a wireless listening system that can help address these issues for people with a hearing loss. If you wear hearing aids or a cochlear implant the Bellman Domino PRO works with the T or telecoil program, and if you don’t wear hearing aids but still require assistance it can be used with discrete ear buds or headphones.
Distance and Noise are the main factors that make listening difficult. With the Bellman Domino PRO you can overcome these issues. The wireless transmitter is worn by the person who is speaking or you can place it in the middle of the table. It picks up the sound and sends it wirelessly to the receiver that you can wear around your neck or place in your pocket.
While listening you can adjust the volume and alter the tone of the sound you are listening to. You basically have more control of the listening environment. With an option telephone adaptor you can also connect the Domino PRO listening system to your office phone. This gives you the ability to hear more in meetings and on the phone.
The system is rechargeable and provides you with approximately 8 – 10 hours of operation. Powered by lithium ion batteries it’s also quick to charge via USB or the supplied power supply.
The system has an operating range of up to 30 m. This is perfect for seminars where you can place the microphone transmitter on the lectern and sit anywhere in the theatre.
FM Systems are used widely in Australian schools, and just because we finish school doesn’t mean we’re finished listening. An FM System is part of the solution to hearing more in noisy environments where your hearing aid just isn’t enough.
Even with hearing aids, there are situations in life when it can be particularly difficult to distinguish speech. This is common in busy environments such as schools, work places and public areas like for instance shopping malls.
The Domino listening system from Bellman & Symfon will help you to hear better in these situations, where hearing aids alone may not always be enough. Domino brings out the words so you can hear them loud and clear – even at a distance. This means you can enjoy the company of colleagues and friends without effort.
Domino consists of a transmitter and a receiver.
1. The receiver captures speech close to you. Wear it around your neck or place it on the table in front of you.
2. The transmitter picks up speech from further away. Just place it across the table – or ask your colleague, schoolmate or teacher to wear it.
Domino uses digital technology to enhance speech and filter out unwanted background noise before it reaches your hearing aid or cochlear implant. The clean and crisp sound makes it easier to hear the words above the noise. Click below to hear what it sounds like.
Both the receiver and the transmitter are equipped with a directional microphone. When you are in a particularly busy environment, you can just ‘point’ Domino to your company and the noise will disappear and the words will come out.
This is useful in for instance canteens, restaurants and terminals, where it would otherwise be very difficult to hear what is being said.
Domino can assist you in many everyday situations, like for instance during meetings, on seminars, or even
when you catch a movie at home. Here you can see some examples of where Domino can help you to hear better.
