General Description

The ListenTALK LK-1 wireless transceiver is a transmitter and receiver in a compact, simple to use unit, enabling both 1-way and 2-way communication between group leaders and participants. This all-in-one device, equipped with Listen Technologies’ exclusive encryption technology and push-to-talk functionality, provides the simplest option for communication and collaboration among two or more people in any environment. In addition to the (supplied) Listen Ear Speaker, ListenTALK can be used with standard smartphone earbuds or a Listen Technologies headset.

Any ListenTALK LK-1 transceiver can be setup as a leader and there must be at least one leader per group.

A leader can be identified by a red leader clip. The leader’s unit then has additional features that ensure they are in complete control during the tour. The leader can choose for the tour participants to Listen only (they cannot interrupt the leader), Respond (they can respond back to the leader only) or Discuss (they can speak to the leader and the group).

When a unit has been setup as a leader the large silver talk button can be toggled between talk and mute. The silver talk button on participant units is programmed to PTT (Push-to-talk) and first-come-first-served with a maximum of two microphones live at any time.

Groups can be created by either pairing each unit back to back with a leader using NFC (Near Field Communication), or in batches by placing the leader unit in the red dock of an optional charging station and pressing a single button.

A wide range of accessories are available from lightweight single earphones to dual-muff noise-reduction headsets, so whether touring a quiet museum or a noisy industrial facility, ListenTALK is the perfect solution.

The ListenTALK system is ideal for many different applications including guided tours, training, event production, assistive listening and simultaneous interpretation.

ListenTALK assists in engaging your audience allowing them to fully participate and ask questions or make comments, whilst ensuring your event runs smoothly with crystal-clear, reliable and secure real-time communication.
