What in the world is the Conversor Pro Plus? It is a combination of two existing Conversor products: 1) the Conversor Pro, and 2) the Conversor TV Pro systems). The Conversor Pro is comprised of two lightweight, rechargeable components. As shown in the image to the right, the smaller component is the pendant receiver (worn by the user) and the larger component is the transmitter/microphone. The Conversor Pro Receiver has a built-in microphone designed to pick up sounds occurring in close proximity to the user and may, therefore, be used on its own without the second component. The use of the Conversor Pro Transmitter comes into play when the user wants to hear a sound source located further away (i.e. lecture, classroom setting). In this situation, the speaker uses the transmitter which wirelessly sends conversations directly to the pendant receiver. The transmitter may also be placed on a table during family, meal or group discussions with the ability to switch the microphone on the transmitter from directional to omnidirectional mode.
In contrast, as shown in the image on the left, the Conversor TV Pro is a wireless listening system specifically designed to hear sound from the TV or other audio source. It is comprised of a transmitter and the same pendant receiver as the Conversor Pro previously described. When the transmitter is in connected to the TV or other audio source, the transmitter sends sound signals directly to the pendant receiver worn by the user. Recall that the pendant receiver may also be used independently as a personal listener.
The Conversor Pro Plus pictured on the right is comprised of the Conversor Pro system with the addition of the transmitter packaged with the Conversor TV Pro. As such, the Conversor Pro Plus is a wireless FM system that enables a user to hear conversations in various listening situations including sounds directly routed from the TV or other audio sources. This product is suitable for both non-hearing instrument wearers and for those patients fit with t-coil equipped hearing instruments.
