I’m a retired carpenter needing hearing aids now my wife can enjoy tv she has perfect hearing making for a great evening for the two of us now she can keep the tv down and I can turn my kara up
It took a little while to adjust the stystem to fit our chair and the way my wife site in the chair but once we sorted that out my wife is really enjoying hearing television again.
My partner Bill is severely hearing impaired. Despite wearing hearing aids, hearing the television was
difficult for him. We researched several different devices to assist him. I came upon the Kare Chair Speake System online
It arrived within days of ordering it. I also received an e-mail to contact the company if there
were any problems. I did have questions, I contacted them via email and by phone. I received a return call within hours. My questions were quickly answered. And that evening also got an email.
The system was so easy to install. There's a video on line that instructs you on installing. Took only a few minutes to have it up and working.
Bill is enjoying television again. The television volume is no longer on 54 ! I am enjoying being in the same
Would recommend this product to anyone needing additional assistance in hearing
This hearing devise is a wonderful wonderful product! We purchased it for our step father who used to blast the tv so dang loud his wife (my husband's Mom) would have to go to the far end of the house , where she could still hear it, but at less of a painful level! Since we got this for him, she can stay in the same room with him and clearly but at a healthy level hear the television!!! THANK YOU!!!!!
Also the first one we got stopped working in the same day. But upon contacting the Kare customer service people, I was treated respectfully, and in a friendly manner. The gentleman told me they would send me another replacement, regardless of the fact that we did not have the original box any more!!! It was shipped before I even got the new label on the broken product!!! Super customer service! Super product!!
The KARE chair speakers are exactly what my Grandfather needed! The sound is clear and crisp. Great product!
We bought these chair speakers for my elderly mom and they work awesome. She was always having issues hearing the tv with her hearing aides and she would turn the tv up to the highest volume. With the chair speakers, she can sit in her recliner and easily hear the tv. Plus she is able to operate the speakers on her own. Definitely a great investment.
These speakers are great. I don’t know who’s happier- mom because she can hear the tv or me because I don’t have to.
Wonderful customer service.
Thank you Brad!
i can hear the t.v.
My mom is eighty-eight and hard of hearing. As a result, every time she watched television, she had to put the volume up extremely high, and I was getting a bit concerned as to potential reaction from my neighbors downstairs.
Lo and behold, The ChairSpeaker changed everything!
After setting up this marvel of technology on Mom's favorite chair, I have to say peace and quiet has once again ruled the roost! My Mom can hear her soap operas and television shows perfectly yet not at a decibel level that rivals an Indy 500 race.
The ChairSpeaker is just magnificent!
This is the second chair audio system that we have used. The old one pushed sound forward into the room, and Dad had to keep the volume really high. The ChairSpeaker CS3 pushes sound towards his ears, and doesn't require such high volumes. In fact, the maximum volume on the CS3 is enough for Dad to hear, but doesn't disturb everyone else in the house.
We did have a small issue with out first CS3 (acted like a loose wire). When I contacted their customer service they responded and shipped a replacement the same day. Great Service!
The CS3 has saved our sanity!
I appreciate the professional staff who work to resolve problems. Thank you very much.
A life saver. We Live with an 82 year old who has very poor hearing. Before these speakers the TV has so loud we had trouble hearing our TV 2 rooms away. Now we have peace.
I have bought two chair speakers for dad to use in his assisted living residence- one in his room and one in the living room. They have been so helpful to him to hear the TV and the other residents that do not have hearing issues can have quiet when they want it. I really appreciate the warranty on this product as one of the devices was replaced when it stopped working. Thank You Kare Audio!
We like that my mom is able to hear the television without having the tv volume blasting in the house.
This was a gift for my parents who have a difficult time hearing the TV. They absolutely love these chair speakers. Being able to adjust the volume individually and isolating the sound to the person in the chair is amazing. The speakers are truly a game changer in their house and the number of arguments have plummeted. Lol!
Their only suggestion for improvement is to secure the speakers better to the chair instead of just hanging. They both have rocking recliners and the speakers occasionally move out of place. But overall, we are very happy with this purchase. Thank you!
This item is great for those who are hearing impaired!
This is my second set of Chair Ears. I love them and need them so I can understand the television. I have one set in my recliner in the family room and one set on the headboard of my bed. I would love for Chair speakers to put their speakers in a pillow of something that can be used in bed. As I get older, I like to lie in bed with my feet up.
I recommend Chair Speakers wholeheartedly. The people at KARE Audio are wonderfully helpful and very willing to help with any problems.
Just a small note of thank you and my appreciation.........and my wife.
I do have hearing issues, even with hearing aids, with listening to the television.
Like most people, I was skeptical about your product, but it looked like the best solution.
I do have a power recliner which includes a power angle head rest. I was not sure how your system would work with that, but I knew competitive units with large hooks over the back of the chair would not work.
The system installation was easy with excellent instructions. The jointed speaker connection system works flawlessly with my recliner's powered head rest.
Volume to my speakers and the adjustability are outstanding and have solved my hearing the TV at reasonable levels for my wife completely. She is very happy also. I should note that the chair speaker was her idea verses me holding a remote speaker to one ear. Headphones would have isolated her, and that is not a good idea.
I am talking to some of my friends in a positive way about your product.
The only down thing I have found is that an Iphone does cause some periodic static to the speakers. Old saying, benefits out weight the small down side.

the volumne/power switch on headset needs to be seperated so can mute the sound to answer phone(whatever) and rubber chair connector needs to have some kind of pinning mechanism -- like safety pin-- so it doesn't need to be repositioned every time you move or get out of chair
Wife says that she can hear talking better in movies.
Saved our caregiver's sanity!
My mom likes the volume at 100, and our caregiver at around 50. The chairspeaker take care of both their preferences.
Bought this for an elderly relative who lives with us. The TV was always at 90-100 volume level and now it can be at a livable level and they can still hear it with the chair speakers. Thank you for giving us back our sanity!
I had to turn up volume on TV so I could hear it this was irritating to my wife of course we looked in this store and that store for some hearing help but all of the products were designed for only one listener the one with the hearing aid "thingy"
this was a frustrating problem for me and Lois I could not hear the TV and i was ready to give up
at this stage in life after many years of academic world I like to watch stuff on TV
SO at Christmas my wife Lois gave me this product and it was SUPERB she even hooked it up by herself she is good at that stuff BUT it was the best thing ever i am so thankful she found this product online somewhere she is good at that too
Thank you for designing this product
It has been wonderful without the TV so loud in our house. He can hear it great and is happy with these speakers. Its only been a week but what a difference!!
I can see how useful this product could be. Unfortunately it isn’t feasible in our living situation because of our three large dogs. If it wasn’t one if them breaking the infrared beam can causing static through the speaker, it was a person dealing with the dogs. I unfortunately had to return the speakers. If you don’t have dogs or anything that could interfere with the infrared beam, then this is an awesome product
Works great, wife can watch and hear her shows in the next room and not mine.
My mom is disabled so getting up to constantly turn on other devices sucks.She also hates having headphones on for too long. This device is awesome for intended over chair but she also hooks it over back of headboard when laying down! PS.... Customer service is pretty awesome too. Made in the USA!!!
Dad loves his new Chair Speaker(s). He's 88 and hard of hearing, using hearing aids. He used to have the TV up so loud it drove everyone else in the house nuts. Chair Speaker was the perfect solution.
We ordered it for my almost deaf mother and she just couldn’t hear even with it. The product is really awesome! I wish it had worked for her. Thanks so much.
Bought these for my father, so far they work great, he likes them, it helps him hear the TV over the background noise of the house, without the TV being super loud.
Speakers are good but we only received one of the two chair speakers we ordered and customer service stopped responding to our emails or messages. I am not willing to shell out another $250 when I should have received two speakers. I will not order from this company again!
It was exactly what I was looking for. The sound quality is great and it doesn’t encumber you because it clips on your chair. There is no delay in the sound and syncing of the speaker’s lips moving. Very satified!
Purchased this for our Father, who "blasted" the TV, what a difference!!!!!! My sister is working from home (my father just out of hospital) and just texted me saying "so speakers are GREAT"
Highly recommend these speakers!
Husband absolutely loves being able to hear the tv as to what is being said. Best purchase ever!!!
I've been using wireless headphones for a couple of years and have never been happy with them because they make my ears itch after a while, limiting how long I can watch TV in comfort. The Chair Speakers are the perfect solution. They work every bit as well as headphones, but without the discomfort and...even though I can hear them perfectly, the sound doesn't travel across the room. Highly recommended. Mark A. Burbank, CA
Worked right out of the box. The 1-2-3 instructions were simple. We used the optical connection, and no adjustment to out TV was needed. No delay from the TV to the speaker. No echos. Worst case is "like a stereo sound" in the room.
Works as advertised. Making life so much better for the rest of the room.
Easy hookup, works very well
The system I first received really fit the bill for what I needed, but it had some sound quality issues, a constant shushing sound in one speaker and sometimes a tinny sound. After talking to their customer service, who went out of their way to be responsive, they sent out a replacement that I received in a couple days. With the replacement, the sound quality issues disappeared. Since then, I totally depend on this for watching TV. I was getting to the point that I had to turn the volume up very high and still couldn't understand half of what was said. With this system, my frustration level has dropped way down, and it's probably saved my husband's hearing from having the volume turned up so high.
It just really fills a need and my experience has been very positive.
Works as advertised! Great for seniors
Works just as advertised. Set on two and voices come out so clear. Very happy
We have purchased two of these ChairSpeakers for our home. One connects in a bedroom and the TV it is attached to has the PCM audio preferred setting. It is brilliant. The sound is focused, easily adjusted and does the job of allowing the user all the sound needed without that sound permeating through the rest of the house.
The second ChairSpeaker is connected in our living room where we use a sound bar with the TV and therefore we are unable to use the PCM audio feature. Still love this device as it allows the listener to have extra volume close to the ears and the rest of us to enjoy the sound bar at a normal setting.
We love this so much that we purchase a 3rd set as a gift for a friend who admired ours :)
the speakers are like being at the old drive in theater in sterio surround sound
We like the results. The purpose was fulfilled. He can hear better, but the wires for the power are always hanging and getting caught on the recliner and the robot vacuum. The arms of it are very hard to bend and shape. I guess I thought it was wireless completely. Its ok, but Im not wowed.
Works as advertised

I am very pleased with your speakers. I am very hard of hearing and these speakers have solved my problem. I strongly recommend them to anyone with a hearing problem.
I cannot say it enough how GREAT this is. I used to have headphones, which after a while are quite uncomfortable and in addition, one cannot hear cell phone calls or anything else. The ChairSpeaker really made it just fantastic. Now I feel like a regular person.
I also got 3.5mm audio switch, which made it possible for me to use headphones whenever I am away from the chair with a turn of the knob. I think the company should also carry audio switch in the accessories section. I highly recommend the ChairSpeaker.
It was a tough sale just convincing my wife this WILL act as advertised (I'm a lifelong audio guy). Once she used it for awhile she has been asking if I would like one for my chair. Sure. So how about a deal on a second speaker set? Ted Perkins, retired EE that hardwired up early versions of this concept for both of my parents starting in the 50's.
My husband is 71 and has been hard of hearing for years. I have tried several devises and he has hearing aids that he has to put in his ears. He can only wear them for about 20 minutes and they heart his ears and the batteries do not last long. None work a all or not well enough. I saw good reviews on this product and thought I would try them. It was very easy to hook up. I did it in minutes. I let my husband try them and he was amazed. I can now keep the tv at the sound I need and he can turn it up to what he needs. The volume control is very easy and handy. No head phones, no putting in ears. The only thing is I sit in the chair that is about 4 feet from him and I can hear a little sound but I concentrate on what I'm watching or doing and I don't hear it. Thank you I hope they last a long time.
Bought this for my 88 yr old mom.
She loves it!!!!
Ordered this for my father who has Parkinson’s and is hard of hearing. After receiving it I couldn’t get it hooked up and called customer service. They had someone call me back within two hours who walked me through setting it up. Their customer service is fantastic. My dad loves the chair speaker as he’s able to put it right up to his ear and he is able to hear without the TV being extremely loud for everyone else in the house. I would definitely order again.
I can finally understand the TV without it being wide open. My wife thinks it's wonderful, now she doesn't have to yell turn the TV down.
This product saved our family. It works perfectly for my hearing impaired father n law. Works wonderfully with his fave channels.
I am so happy that these speakers work as advertised! My husband can hear everything said on tv without the speakers disturbing everyone else. I no longer hate watching tv and do not have to repeat what was said and explain what is happening because he has missed out on so much. Now we watch tv together in comfort and we both can hear everything. We are both very satisfied.
Earbuds still seem to deliver clearer, crisper speech. But the comfort of not wearing them during longer viewing sessions is a great plus. They are not very attractive on the furniture. I guess that's just another of life's tradeoffs. The on-off/volume control is hard to grip with arthritic fingers. Overall a good solution to the TV listening proplem
Has enjoyed being able to hear TV. She is bedridden but it fits fine over pillow and back of mattress. Only issue is there is feedback every now and then that is startling to her. I don't know why that is occurring.
My husband loves it! And, of course, I also love it because we no longer have the TV blasting every day!!
Attn:Detective “Q” .
Thank you so much for your support!
This is a terrific concept and a good product. This company has truly outstanding customer service, probably the best I have ever experienced. We had a problem with our first shipment and they did everything you would want to resolve the issue, sincerely interested in trying to make it right. After much effort the problem was resolved to our satisfaction. Highly recommended!
This is a good product. My husband loves it. He can finally hear the TV and the TV volume remains normal
I bought this for my father in-law and he is so much happier now that he can enjoy television again.
It's just what we needed for my husband so the TV doesn't have to be so loud.
This chair speaker saved us, back to enjoying TV together. We don't even have it turned up all the way and can hear everything. The TV itself is now turned down in the room, what a nice change. We can talk and watch TV again, it has been a while. Thank you!
It is perfect. Easy to set up. Thank you.
What a great product! I use my ChairSpeaker along with a sound bar (be sure to request the splitter which allows both to operate simultaneously). My customer service experience was outstanding, the representative went out of his way to accommodate my needs. I highly recommend the ChairSpeaker.
My father has serious hearing loss. We tried many ways to help him hear the television, while the rest of the family, including my mother, could avoid going deaf. He could not tolerate headphones. The chair speakers put the sound near his ears, so he can hear without the constraints of headphones. Now, he hears the television comfortably, while the television is practicably inaudible in the rest of the house...including the room he is in. Thank you so much for preventing a homicide!!! :)
Can really enjoy listening to the tv again. If you listen carefully with music, melody and harmony can be differentiated. Well worth the cost
First of all I want to say this is a real review from a retired couple in their 60s. I ordered the Chairspeaker for my husband. He didn't like wearing headphones but needed the tv turned up very loud to hear his television shows. This product was the perfect answer. It works very well. My husband said his only complaint is that the speaker quality could be just a little better but not a deal breaker by no means. We had a sound bar so needed some help to hook it up. Just call and they will help you and send you any extra parts you need for free. If you are on the fence about this, just try it. There is a 30 day free trial period so what do you have to lose! I wasn't sure about this item but decided to try it. We are keeping ours!
I am simply amazed. I live with my 80 year old mother and have been searching for a while for something to solve the blasting TV. This. This! It's amazing! She can hear voices clearly and I barely have the TV volume on as I can hear it through her speakers. Set up was SO Easy! Plug the optical cable into the Direct TV box, then into the transmitter, plug the transmitter and speakers into a wall outlet and that's it! Don't hesitate! Save your ears!
I purchased this for my 80 year old father who has 90+% hearing loss from being in the service and now he can finally hear the TV. He can hear the football broadcasters and doesn’t need close captioning any longer. The only thing I may need your help with is when he reaches his hand to the volume knob, he loses the connection. He told me that he called you folks, which I can’t believe he made the call, major thing for him, and you’re going to be sending him a shelf to sit the transmitter box higher in hopes that it takes care of the issue. Thankyou very much for that. He was very much impressed with the service you provided to him. The only ask I have is if you happen to have an audio optical cable available, that’s rather long, it would be greatly appreciated if it could be sent to him. I’m going to mount the shelf higher for him but it don’t believe the optics cable I have will be long enough. If not, I can purchase one for him. I beta tested everything at my house before I gave the present to him and could only get it to work with the optical cable. Thankyou for helping to improve my fathers life. At least now he can watch sports, news, shows, etc. and really enjoy himself again. Best regards, Jeff Leid
Mother-in-law loves them
Works great and my Mom loves it. So much better than wearing those head phones
This is the replacement system review and this system works great
Love the ability to hear the TV without having volume up to 70. Easy to set up with the help of your tech people as we had a problem with the type of TV we have. Your tech person was so helpful.
it works fine. I am very satisfied. this also with your good service. Many thanks
I love the chairspeaker! I can hear subaudible frequencies in Vermilion parish without any interference. Makes a Great gift and a great purchase.
Works well. I wish it had a volume knob on both sides though.
I can now understand the words without the volume.
Our Chair speaker, when hooked up to our smart TV with digital, gives us a way to control both TV and CS sounds separately. This option satisfies our listening needs. We now need to know if we can have 2 chair speakers working off one smart TV.
We were so impressed with the hook up and sound control we invited our 96 year old neighbor to experience our chair speaker. We believe his wife, Sandra Dwyer, has ordered one.
Easy to setup . Tone clearer with speakers.
Note : would be nice to put in package with thin lead to remove plastic from head
for people ,who don't read instructions first.
I bought the CS2 for myself and then when the CS3 was introduced I bought it for my husband. It WORKS! Sports programs have announcers talking over the crowd noise instead of under it. Movies now have the music in the background where it belongs and finally, I watched a show that I usually struggle to understand the words and it was crystal clear. I had been wondering why someone couldn't come up with this. Great job.
This is my second purchase. First was for my Dad and this one for my wife. Both excellent!
Very pleased with the product
Just two minor criticism :
1. Would be easier and more comfortable if the arm had length adjustability
2. The connection between speakers and transmitter is not consistent
