Summary: Without this product, I often missed elements of dialogue while watching TV, even after raising the volume really high. Now I can watch TV shows with the mute button on, ensuring that no one else within earshot is disturbed and with no loss of audio.
Summary: My husband is hard of hearing. This has been a godsend for him. I also use it on occasion because I find that it picks up background conversations in movies that I would normally have missed. We purchased two, one for the living room and 1 for the bedroom.
