There are several types of TV aids from the Sennheiser brand. But how do you know which one best suits your needs?
Below are a few questions that can help you make sure you order the right model:
Question 1: Do you want to use the telecoil function in your hearing aid?
If there is an induction loop in your hearing aid, this must be activated in the hearing aid by the hearing care professional. When the telecoil is activated, you can activate this mode by pressing the program button on the hearing aid. If you want to combine a Sennheiser with your hearing aid, you will hear the sound from the TV directly through your hearing aids. The big advantage of this is that the microphones of the hearing aid are switched on and this means that you are not completely isolated from your environment. If you want to use the loop in the hearing aid, the Sennheiser Flex 5000 is the right model for you.
Question 2: Do you want headphones or a chin guard?
If you choose a chin bar, a small cap goes into the ear and the receiver hangs under your chin. This has the great advantage that the ears are free so that you do not get a closed feeling. You can also opt for a headphone, this fits over your ears and is very comfortable, but can provide a closed feeling.

Question 3: Do you want to connect the Sennheiser to the radio at the same time?
All Sennheisers can be connected to the TV or the radio, only you have to switch the connection if you want to switch. There is also a type of Sennheiser, the set 880, which you can connect to both the TV and the radio so that you do not have to convert the transmitter all the time. The Sennheiser set 880 is a chin bar.
Question 4: Is sound quality more important than price?
There are different types of types and there is also a price difference. If you think the sound quality is important, you are in a higher price range, but you will certainly not regret it! If you opt for a higher price range, then you choose the Sennheiser set 880 or the set 860. If you would like the cheaper version, then choose the Sennheiser RS5000.
