The Bellman Maxi Personal Listening Device is a portable amplification device that helps you hear things like conversations, the television and radio more clearly, whether you have a hearing aid or not.
In order to complete the unit, a Neckloop, Headphones, or Stethoset Headphones need to be added.
The Maxi is an outstanding personal listener that gives you excellent value for money. Using the same technology as a digital hearing aid, it gives exceptional digital sound quality, but at the fraction of the price of other digital listeners.
The tone control function allows you to adjust the bass and treble of the sound. This is useful because you can tailor it to suit your particular hearing loss.
If you wear a hearing aid then you will need to purchase a Neckloop from our accessories list. These plug into the Maxi and transfer the sound to your hearing aid - a bit like headphones. Just make sure your hearing aid has a T-setting.
If you don't have a hearing aid you need to plug in a pair of headphones or a Stethoset to hear the amplified sound. These can also be purchased from the accessories list.
If listening to the TV......
There is a long 5m microphone lead that is available as an accessory for the Maxi. This can be placed next to the TV to help you hear more clearly. The sound is sent straight to your ears and cuts out background noise. However, if you press the 'mic' button you will hear the TV and any other sounds in the room, while the button is pressed. When you release the 'mic' button, you will return to the plug-in sound. This is useful if you want to speak to someone while watching TV, or if you don't want to miss the phone or doorbell ringing.
