Used with the compliant quantity of Wi-Fi based receiving devices or coupled with traditional radio frequency or infrared technology systems, audio over Wi-Fi systems also meet ADA requirements for assistive listening”.
Listen EVERYWHERE Really Lets Me Listen Everywhere
“What’s really nice is that I can go to the fridge in the basement to get a soda and still hear the movie. I chopped vegetables in the kitchen listening to the news, hearing it well enough that I could argue with the newscaster. I went out to the chicken coop to collect eggs and could still hear the movie. I was watching one of the Star Wars movies earlier, lamenting the fact that I could not hear some of the music I remembered and other little intricacies. Duh! I forgot to set myself up with the LE. After I connected, I heard what I wanted, and some sounds I didn’t even know were there.”
