Personal FM Systems
What is a personal FM audio listening system?
Personal FM audio listening systems serve to pick up relevant sound. A common example would be a speaker’s voice, which is then transmitted directly to a listener to improve hearing. They usually consist of at least 1 transmitter and 1 receiver. Our transmitter, typically held or worn by a person speaking, uses a microphone to pick up sound. Next, It then transmits it to the receiver. Transmitters can also be plugged into other media, such as smartphones to transmit audio directly.
Simeon Canada provides reliable solutions for personal FM audio listening systems. Firstly, a listener wears or holds the receiver, which amplifies the sound. An example commonly used is via either T-Coil technology or through headphones/earbuds if users have hearing aids with T-coil.
Uses & Integration
At this time, Simeon Ranger and remote microphone systems are typically used by individuals with hearing difficulties or auditory processing disorders to improve hearing and increase the amount of content the listener hears. They are great in meeting and classroom environments where the space between the speaker and listener may be large.
Lastly, If a soundfield is already in place in the environment, someone can typically patch personal FM and remote microphones in so that the individual speaking only needs to use one transmitter. We usually do this by connecting the personal FM / remote microphone transmitter to the Audio Out port of a soundfield receiver. However, in the case of the Ranger remote microphone system (below) and the Audita soundfield system, patching is not required since they operate on the same frequency. Instead, Audita transmitters can transmit sound directly to a Ranger receiver.
Simeon Ranger highlights
Furthermore, we believe our Simeon Ranger personal FM audio listening system is awesome;
For example, Simeon Ranger is the first and only remote microphone system under the Simeon umbrella. We’ve compiled our personal FM audio listening system expertise to create a product that answers all your needs:
Remarkable sound quality
At this instant, one can experience Ranger’s FM transmission that allows for crystal-clear sound so you can hear at a distance in real time. 96 channels allow you to ensure your signal isn’t competing with anything else.
Huge transmission range
At the present time, Simeon Ranger has a stronger signal than similar systems and works even in large spaces without signal drops.
By comparision, ranger exceedingly simple to use; unlike most systems with complicated menus and functions, Ranger keeps the user in mind with a 3-button keypad.
An equally important advantage is Simeon Ranger was designed to work seamlessly with Audita soundfield; both operating on the same UHF band. Users of Audita transmitters can transmit directly to the Ranger receiver with no extra patching or cables needed, making simultaneous use of a soundfield and remote microphone system easier than ever.
Unique Ranger features
In addition, the core components of Ranger are a transmitter and receiver. Simeon’s transmitter features a plug-in microphone that can be substituted for other microphone styles or to connect peripheral equipment to play media. Our receiver comes with a pair of attenuated earbuds, but you can replace these for a neckloop or ear hooks depending on your preference.
The system also includes:
- A Micro USB charging adapter
- Two lanyard holsters for the transmitter and receiver
- A clamshell case for the complete system.
