This machine is actually a TV speakerphone that the user has to put next to him and the sound comes from it, so even those who would not hear much of it anyway at normal volume can also enjoy the show. This way, there is no need to yell at the product, which can be confusing for family members, roommates, neighbors. There is also a headphone output on the device, which can also be very useful. The data is transmitted wirelessly via a radio connection (2.4 GHz), ie a transmitter must be connected to the audio output of the television. Installation is slap-easy, no serious electronic expertise is required, and the range is 30 meters, which seems like a lot.

Its design also shows that it was aimed at the elderly, as they used large dials and buttons instead of a touch-sensitive control panel. The device’s battery can store enough energy for 8 hours of operation while the charging time is three hours. The OWL-TMTSP01 includes an FM tuner, so it can also be used for radio, and it costs 14,280 yen, or about 40,000 forints.
