- WHAT'S NEW IN THE CS2
2nd Generation ChairSpeaker
We created the ChairSpeaker, a smart and adjustable speaker system that lets you experience television with voice-enhancing sound in a whole new way. Designed to rest over the top of your couch, chair, recliner, or even headboard, these small but powerful speakers produce crisp, clear sound around you to delivery clarity you can enjoy.
More importantly, they boast voice-enhancing sound, an adjustable volume knob, and the ability to put you in a “sound cloud” that only you can enjoy without missing out on the world around you.
• Easier and more comfortable than wearable audio systems
• Allow you to still listen to the natural sounds or communication around you
• Eliminate ear fatigue, sweat, moisture or uncomfortable feeling of headphones
• Adjustable volume control that works independently of your TV
• Immersive sound with tv voices enhanced
• No expensive batteries, wireless connections, or complicated recharging
• You can still use your sound bar or TV sound or turn the TV sound off.
The main improvement of the 2nd generation is the selectable voice enhancement feature. We have listened to our customers likes and dislikes and continue to make efforts to improve the ChairSpeaker. If you have any suggestions, let us know!

Will this work with my TV?
Can I use this with my soundbar?
YES! Many people use this with soundbars. However, you may need a optical splitter found here. OPTICAL SPLITTER
Will this work with my surround sound system?
YES! If we can get sound signal to the transmitter it will work. Most surround sound systems have audio out. If you have an audio output it will work!
Will the ChairSpeaker work on a couch?
YES! The ChairSpeakers patented gripping system allows the speaker to conform to almost anything!
How far away can I be from the TV?
33 Feet! The ChairSpeaker will work upto 33 feet away from the TV in direct line of sight.
Is this high fidelity sound?
We have high quality sound but High fidelity, hi-fi or hifi is a term used by listeners, audiophiles and home audio enthusiasts to refer to high-quality reproduction of sound. We modify the sound to make the dialog easier to hear. This intentional modification of the sound excludes us from hi-fi.
Can I still use the TV speakers too?
YES! At least with most TVs. If your TV has an audio output that does not automatically turn off the speakers both will work. When the transmitter is connected to the optical cable the sound can be independently controlled.
Can I turn off the TV Speakers?
Most TV's headphone jack will turn off the TV speakers so hooking the transmitter up with the headphone jack will normally accomplish turning off the TV speakers. When the transmitter is connected to the optical cable the sound can be independently controlled.
Will this work on my bed?
We have many people who use the ChairSpeaker to hang over the edge of the head board to hear the TV better in bed. The volume control side of the speaker must remain in direct line of sight of the transmitter.
Can I use this in another room?
The ChairSpeaker needs to be within 33 feet of the TV and in a direct line of sight of the transmitter.
How do you charge the battery?
The ChairSpeaker does not use a battery. The speakers and the transmitter both require power an electrical outlet.
Does this work with bluetooth?
Our system does not use bluetooth. Bluetooth is too slow for the type of communication needed to make the ChairSpeaker work.
Where do I place the transmitter?
The transmitter need to face the speakers. The transmitter can be placed on a shelf or beside the TV. If your TV hangs on the wall or you don't have a place to set the transmitter a good solution is our Transmitter Shelf. Found HERE
We understand hooking up the ChairSpeaker to your TV may be challenging. We address a variety of methods to connect to virtually any system. Everything needed to connect the first 3 methods is included in the box. Connection videos can be found here & the manual can be downloaded here.
Everything needed is included for these 3 hookup methods
The audio optical out cable can be used to connect the ChairSpeaker transmitter to the TV's optical audio out. When using this type of connection you must change your TV's output type to PCM audio format. This option is normally in the settings menu under audio options.
RCA output is a very common and easy to use output, however you must make sure the output is labeled as an output. This connection method will not work on inputs RCAs.
When using the headphone jack to connect the transmitter the sound will be turned off on the TV. If you would like to listen to the TVs sound and sound through the ChairSpeaker you will need to use another method.
Other hookup methods requiring additional parts
With Surround Sound
You can use an optical splitter to share the sound with your sound bar. When using this type of connection you must change your TV's output type to PCM audio format. This option is normally in the settings menu under audio options. To order this kit for connection click here.
You can hook up to the center channel of any surround sound system. We suggest the center channel because this is the channel that typically carries the voices. Using this hook up method the volume will be adjusted when you adjust the volume on the surround sound. To hook up to the the center channel you will need the center channel connection kit. To order this kit click here.
With Coaxial Digital Out
With HDMI Extractor
Some TV's only have a Coaxial output. In this case you will need a coaxial converter. Using this kit may cause an echo depending on your TV. To order or learn more click here.
HDMI is a common cable for transporting video and audio in the same cable. In cases were you need to remove the sound you can use an audio extractor kit. To order or learn more click here.
