Can't hear dialogue on TV? ZVOX can fix that! The AccuVoice AV200 uses hearing aid technology to make voices crystal-clear, even at low volumes. ZVOX's proprietary technology literally lifts voices out of the sound track - and then modifies the voices to make them understandable. You'll hear every word, even on poorly mixed programs.
Exclusive Technology Makes Voices Clear.
The AccuVoice AV200 Speaker uses patent-pending technology to make voices clear and easy to understand when you watch a program, movie or sporting event on TV. The speaker uses a high-speed computer processor and advanced algorithms to separate voices from the rest of the soundtrack. It then manipulates those voices to make them clear and understandable. The results are remarkable.
Easy to Install. One-Page Owner's Manual.
The AV200 is so small (17" wide) you can put it just about anywhere. And it works well above or below your TV, or to the left or right. Hookup is simple – just one connecting wire to your TV. Then plug it in the wall, turn down the sound on your TV speakers, and you get high quality sound and clear voices on every program. It's so easy to use it has a one-page owner's manual.
If you've ever been blasted out of your chair by a too-loud commercial - you'll love our Output Leveling (OL) feature. Just push the OL button and a sophisticated processor takes over, making soft sounds louder and loud sounds softer, so there are fewer jarring moments when switching channels or when commercials come on. This system also helps by boosting the audio levels from a DVD or Blu Ray player that are not loud enough.
Taming Loud Commercials.
AccuVoice AV200 Benefits.
- Great Sound. The AV200 is a great sounding little speaker. Music, movies and TV shows will come to life in your room. This is a true high fidelity loudspeaker.
- Many Placement Options. You can place the AV200 in front of your TV, or on a shelf anywhere near your TV. Or you can wall-mount it using the hanger slots built into the back of the speaker.
- PhaseCue Virtual Surround Sound. ZVOX's proprietary PhaseCue virtual surround processing gives you rich, three-dimensional sound with movies or music. Sound & Vision magazine calls it "remarkably ingenious."
- Will Work With Most Remote Controls. It’s easy to program the speaker so that it responds to power, volume and mute commands from your current IR (infrared) remote control.
- Disappearing Display. The speaker features a four-digit display located behind the speaker grille that shows the current setting for volume, bass, treble and PhaseCue (virtual surround) - and also shows when you have engaged the Mute, Output Leveling (OL) or AccuVoice (ACCU) features. A few seconds after you stop using your remote (or front panel) controls, the display disappears completely.
- Aluminum Cabinet. AccuVoice Speakers use strong, acoustically correct aluminum cabinets. Thin aluminum cabinet walls allow for maximum internal volume without sacrificing acoustic quality.

Edit: sometimes the dialogue is out of sync. Can some one advise why this happens!
zxox and we were not satisfied wit one ore more
features in each product, e.g. pour quality sound, pour volume control, no on off light display on front of the sound bar. All units were easy to install. The zvox is the smallest of the units we tried but produces the clearest sound with clear speech. Don’t hesitate to buy it.
The optical audio was at first hard to plug in but I found when I held it just right , it clicked right in. A flashlight helped me distinguish the sides of the tiny plug.
The technology of the ZVOX helps over come poor sound mixing, busy background noise and thick accents.
Very pleased with the unit and price point.

I saw an ad for the AccuVoice in the WSJ and decided to try it, since its entire function is to enhance dialog. I am quite pleased with the improvement and set-up was easy. Plus, the modest size is ideal for our TV setting, making it rather unobstrusive.
I'm glad I finally acted, and can recommend this unit to anyone with impaired hearing.
The voice clarifying technology works great when the speaker actually works. Unfortunately, the speakers seem to be defective and don't work for very long before they become static machines. I am returning my second speaker to Amazon today for a full refund.
It shut itself off and will not power back on.
Here is the part of this story that ticks me off.
While this product is overall rated at 4.5 stars take a look at the 1 star reviews.
The manufacturer always responds to one star reviews to try to make the company look like they care but that is obviously a joke .
In these replies to the 1 star reviews the rep from ZVOX states that there is a known issue with defective units like mine that were produced in a known time period.
Here is a tip for you ZVOX,RECALL THE KNOWN DEFECTIVE UNITS .
I bought this unit for my 87 year old mother.
Thank you ZVOX for ruining a elderly ladies day.
I returned the defective product.
The package arrived at the ZVOX facility 6 days ago according to the tracking number.
ZVOX still has not acknowledged that they recieved the defective speaker..
Looks like I will have to file a Amazon A_Z claim.
Thanks again ZVOX.
Great Product! Does exactly what I wanted, I have trouble picking speech out of background noise - I can hear speech but can't understand the words. This thing is great for that! It has 4 settings :
-P2 boost speech a bit
-P3 surround sound
-ACCU - full on accuvoice hearing aid type algorithms
"P2 Boost speech a bit" has been fantastic for me, just enough I can understand the words but not such a change that anyone else notices. I don't have to blast the TV to understand the words anymore. I know it is working as I accidental changed it to "normal" for about an hour, by the end of the hour I had the volume way up and still had trouble. Put it back to P2 and turned it back down and all is good.
I can see using the Accuvoice setting if my hearing gets any worse, but others in the room will tell the difference (really brings the voices forward, drops everything else out and sounds a little odd)
One Tip - you can program this to use your regular remote to do volume & mute. that works great . You can also program the power button to turn it on or off. Skip that part, the sound bar automatically shuts down when sound stops coming. When you turn the TV back on, it turns on by itself. That way you are never "out of sync" (TV powered on, sound bar off - or vice versa)
might be a little pricey, but well worth it if you have hearing issues!
Hearing is said to be extremely subjective, so it's tough to really review a product like this or "learn" from others' comments. All you can do is read all review comments and Q&A and hope to find some that describe hearing loss similar to yours. Then, consider everything with a large grain of salt. Here are my impressions from my personal experience using the ZVOX 200 for several weeks.
* The unit is small and doesn't block the infrared signal from the TV remote to my 2008 Sony XBR6 TV.
* It doesn't have any annoying LED glow lights; a nice, low-intensity amber display briefly shows changes in volume levels and settings.
* It does very slightly even out high/low volume levels so that (for example) commercials don't blast quite as loudly. While this feature is barely detectable to me, I do appreciate the effort.
* It does help with voice clarity somewhat, especially with Accuvoice on.
* Compared to a two-channel Sony 25-inch soundbar with a voice enhancement feature and a muddy-sounding sub-woofer, which I bought for about the same sale price at Best Buy (and have returned), this ZVOX delivers slightly clearer voice, has a much thicker (so perhaps better-quality) optical cable, and has a headphone jack (the Sony didn't).
* With Accuvoice on, the overall sound is quite harsh, and despite its third driver, the unit really doesn't do much to isolate or lift out the scripted voice track in movies and other programs over cable (Comcast) because it also amplifies high-frequency background sounds (city street noise, music, crickets, rain, rustling of papers or clothing, etc.), which today's broadcasts (and even new movie releases) for some reason already over-emphasize to near distortion. (I'm not sure if voice is actually broadcast on its own track, though; perhaps a surround system is necessary for fine adjustments or to truly isolate voice.)
* When I fast-forward a program and then resume, the unit makes a brief crashing sound, as if momentarily playing several seconds of the program at once. I called ZVOX about this (and, ironically, the call quality on their end was abominable, as if they were having a loud party and simultaneously snorkeling in the open ocean during a mega-storm). The rep said he'd heard of the crashing-sound issue and suggested that I try connecting the optical cable directly to the Comcast DVR instead of the TV. But then, when I wanted to use my Blu-ray player, I'd have to move the optical cable again, requiring careful navigation to lug the TV stand out from the wall, crawl back there with a flashlight, and finesse a bunch of heavy cables every time. So, nah, not worth it. Maybe a splitter would work?
* I'd prefer much smaller volume intervals than this unit provides; I find I'm usually having to choose between slightly too high and slightly too low. This is one area where the Sony soundbar I tried was actually much better: It had fairly minute volume intervals.
* The unit turns on when I turn on my TV (using the Comcast remote) but doesn't turn off when I turn off the TV. However, I haven't tried to program the ZVOX code into the remote; once I do, maybe it will turn the ZVOX off.
* As with any other soundbar (I think), this doesn't work in combination with a stereo system (at least not an old-school two-channel system) because the TV sound must be on to send the signal through the stereo system to the speakers, and the latency in sound delivery differs by a millisecond, which creates a weird echo effect.
Think the concept is good, but the reliability/quality is not there.
After a short time of operation, it started making a loud electronic "popping" sound.
Soon it became almost continuous and forced me to turn it off.
Tried it over the course of several days and it continued to do the same thing.
Returned to the supplier and bought another brand elsewhere.
No problem with the return and the supplier responded quickly.
WARNING: Rant is next:
I HATE flat screen TVs. The audio is ALWAYS HORRIBLE! And I can't figure it out. They make tiny tiny Bluetooth speakers that blow away the speakers that are in some of the more expensive TVs. In fact, I've seen 4k TVs on sale for $1800 and the audio is sad to say the least.
But now I have my ZVOX! And, MAN! What an improvement! I can turn the speaker up and the audio doesn't get distorted. And I've never turned it up past 13 because it blows me away. I'm not even sure what the loudest setting on this speaker is. And I don't care what it is because, usually, I have it set between 7 or 9. And even when I turn it DOWN, like to about 4, it still impresses me with clear voice audio!
If you want to hear more... If you want the clarity of dialogue that only AccuVoice Technology can deliver... Then you'd be wasting your time looking somewhere else. ZVOX, you ARE pure sound!
