UNBOXED: Reviewing the AccuVoice AV200 TV Speaker by ZVOX Audio
A few months back, I had the opportunity to interview Tom Hannaher, the CEO of ZVOX Audio, about the launch of their new TV speaker aimed at improving the clarity of dialogue on today’s TVs.
“Everyone realizes it, but the fact is that in the early 50s, sound systems in TVs were better than the sound systems in TVs today,” Tom Hannaher, CEO of ZVOX, said in the interview. “The pictures, of course, it’s no comparison. But the audio has not been given the same attention because nobody buys a TV because it sounds good. And it’s only going to get word with OLED—there’s just no room for a good sound system.”
So, ZVOX set out to create a product that would help solve that problem. But, in the back of their minds, Hannaher knew they were also catering the device towards a population of some 95 million Americans over the age of 50 who suffer from hearing loss.
