Why does Listen Tech have such great performance? The plastic they use is transparent to IR so the pickup of the system is AMAZING. Check out this short video demonstration:
Listen expands its iDSP (Intelligent Digital Signal Processing) offerings with a new IR version, joining the previously introduced iDSP RF 72 MHz receivers (LR-4200-072 Intelligent DSP RF Receiver and LR-5200-072 Advanced Intelligent DSP RF Receiver). The iDSP IR receiver features an integrated neck loop/lanyard for end users; streamlined dispensing, collecting and care; and environmentally friendly advanced battery technology—in the smallest, lightest device of its kind.
The iDSP IR Receiver offers precise clarity with 20 dB less hiss than comparable products. The integrated neck loop/lanyard improves the experience for people who have hearing aids and cochlear implants with telecoils. iDSP IR receivers are the smallest of their kind, making them easier for venues to store, charge, and distribute; it also makes it easier for end users to wear and operate. Additionally, iDSP IR receivers use lithium-ion battery technology with battery management (same as a smartphone), eliminating the cost and hassle of traditional AA alkaline batteries.
For venues, the benefits of iDSP IR receivers are obvious. They streamline the care and management process—iDSP IR is easier to care for, store, and distribute than comparable products from other manufacturers. Additionally, since the iDSP IR receiver comes with an integrated neck loop/lanyard (making it compliant with the legislative requirement to provide neck loops for hearing aids with telecoils), the complication and guesswork are taken out of achieving legislative compliance.
There are also benefits for end users: iDSP IR is easier for end users to check out from venues, it’s easier to operate, and it’s easier to wear. Also, iDSP IR receivers can be programmed (using free iDSP software) with unique display names, like Theatre, Chapel, Classroom, or more. Additionally, the iDSP software allows venue inventory management and a convenient USB port makes it easy to set up software and apply updates.
System components include the charging tray, which can be mounted in several ways; charging case; optional cable management system; earphones (with leatherette cushions, or hard plastic, solving certain sanitary issues); log book; free setup/inventory software; and signage. Two headphone jacks accommodate neck loop/lanyard or two sets of headphones (could be shared if needed).
Listen IR can also be used with other major brands of existing IR transmitters and systems, improving the performance of these solutions!
