As a Senior Home Safety Specialist who has reviewed tech products for the elderly for over 7 years, I know the struggle many seniors face hearing audio from their devices.

Plus, the treVolo U’s high-quality microphone picks up nuances smartphone mics miss.
You won’t have to say “what?” constantly during calls anymore.
Enjoy Crystal Clear Computer Audio
With Bluetooth connectivity, the treVolo U paired easily and seamlessly with my mobile phone, computer, and tablet.
The proprietary treVolo Voice Engine optimizes audio from video calls, YouTube videos, audiobooks, and more for vocal clarity.
Music that Doesn’t Strain to Hear
Age-related hearing loss often impacts music appreciation, but the treVolo U tailors audio frequencies to the listener via a quick hearing test in the app.
Its duo driver system enhances treble and bass for a rich, balanced sound. You will finally make out melodies, background harmonies, and instruments clearly again to truly enjoy the nuances of good music!
Understand TV Dialogue Better
The Trevolo U’s Acoustic Echo Cancellation removes distracting echo from TV audio. Its angled design projects sound directly to your ears so you can turn up the volume without disturbing others.
You won’t have to strain to hear the TV anymore. Setup is quick and easy by syncing via Bluetooth or connecting the 3.5mm audio cable.
As an audiobook lover, I was thrilled with the treVolo Voice Engine’s optimization for natural, human-like voices. Soft-spoken narrators and accents become crisp and discernible.
You can fully immerse yourself in audiobooks and podcasts now.
The Struggle is Real: Common Hearing Challenges
In my experience working with seniors, age-related hearing loss affecting high frequencies makes distinguishing dialogue difficult, especially children’s voices. Background noise also complicates things by masking primary sounds.
On top of this, some device speakers don’t deliver sufficient clear, loud sound for the hearing impaired. Understanding speech requires picking up specific frequencies that decline with age.
The app also lets you customize the sound profile to improve areas you personally struggle hearing, like high or low frequencies. This personalization makes a big difference.
Simple Setup, Immediate Improvement
I found the treVolo U very user-friendly. Its Bluetooth connectivity and conferencing platform compatibility facilitate a quick, simple setup. It connected to my phone in less than 1 minute after turning it on.
There are no complex menus or controls – just crystal-clear audio in minutes.
Optimize Your Listening Environment
To complement devices like the treVolo U, you should also optimize the listening environment in your home.
- Background noise from appliances, traffic, or chatter can interfere with audio clarity.
- Turn off unnecessary electronics and close windows to reduce noise distractions.
- Position yourself close to speakers and elevate devices to ear level for direct sound delivery.
- Avoid placing speakers in corners or confined spaces, which creates an echo.
- Utilize sound-absorbing furnishings like curtains and rugs to minimize audio reverberation.
- Take advantage of audio cues and enhanced subtitles on TVs.
- And invest in a pair of comfortable, noise-isolating headphones to further diminish ambient distractions.
With some simple environmental tweaks, you can enhance the benefits of the treVolo U.
Use Caution with Volume
While the treVolo U allows you to increase volume to comfortable hearing levels, take care not to overdo it. Excessive loudness can be dangerous for your ears. Set volumes to the minimum level needed for clarity and comprehension and use the treVolo’s Safe Volume Detection feature for your safety.
Take regular breaks and limit headphone usage to safe time periods. And get your hearing checked annually to detect any changes requiring adjustment.
By optimizing volume combined with smart listening habits, you can protect your ears while making the device audio ideal.
