Trouble hearing voices on TV? Try ZVOX AccuVoice

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could actually decipher and properly hear the dialogue in on TV and in movies? Yes, it’s baffling. As technology advances and the advent of immersive technologies like surround sound and Dolby Atmos, to enjoy as show, we still might have to crank up the volume, which may help marginally or turn on close captioning. Sometimes we may even have to “rewind” and go back to make out what’s actually being said.

Whether you’re tracking the time or simply gauging by touch, some people just have the knack for knowing exactly when their meat has been cooked to perfection. For others like me, it’s always been about constantly hovering over the hot stove or grill poking your chicken, steak or fish with a thermometer or cutting into it to make sure it’s cooked right.

It’s waterproof and rustproof and made from highly durable stainless steel with a ceramic top. It’s also dishwasher safe so it’s easy to clean.
