BLUFFDALE, UT — Listen Technologies Corporation, a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of assistive listening products for over 15 years, is pleased to announce that it recently began shipping its Wi-Fi Personal Listening products. These systems offer a no-hassle listening experience by broadcasting audio from multiple televisions or other audio sources using digital Wi-Fi transmission. The sound is then delivered to any Wi-Fi-enabled device with audio streaming capability, such as an iPhone or Android. This system allows contractors and system integrators to upgrade the listening experience for customers in venues such as fitness centers, sports bars, airports and waiting rooms.

Two versions of the system are currently available: LS-PL-10 and the LS-PL-20, for 10- and 20-channel configurations, each with the following features:

LAN port to connect to Wireless Access Points for Wi-Fi broadcast of the Personal Listening network
ISP connectivity to provide Internet access for users connected to the Personal Listening network
Users can listen to any of the audio inputs via smartphone and the Personal Listening App, available as a free download for iOS and Android devices
Low latency
Preconfigured Wi-Fi and server settings, simply connect your TV audio or other sources
Management of channel names
Future software updates will add enhancements and increased functionality

These systems are already proving to be the right solution for a range of businesses.

“With Listen’s Wi-Fi Personal Listening system, we were able to offer our members the ability to listen to any of our TV’s anywhere in our club using their own iPhone or Android device,” stated Scott Felsted, CEO, Gold’s Gym Utah. “Our members are definitely more comfortable using their own headphones or ear buds, and it has eliminated the hassle of maintaining extra AV hardware at each machine.”

With installations in fitness centers, sport bars and tourist centers across North America, Listen is confident this new technology will be a perfect complement to its RF, IR and Loop technologies. These facilities are thrilled about the elimination of the hassle of maintaining, upgrading and servicing the hardware used for multiple TV screens and other sources. The result is happier customers who are able to use their devices for personal listening.

“When we launched our Android and iOS apps in December of 2013, the response was extremely positive,” stated Russell Gentner, CEO of Listen Technologies. “Wi-Fi Personal Listening Products are obviously the next phase in assistive listening, and we are proud to lead the charge in being able not only to provide an enhanced customer experience but also to raise the profile of assistive listening to the mainstream community.”
