Listen Technologies works toward educating its customers on the importance of assistive listening for people with hearing loss.

The company’s assistive listening solutions were created specifically to provide an enhanced personal audio experience due to hearing loss or the ambient acoustic environment.

Now Florida-based Herman Pro AV will distribute Listen’s RF, IR and ListenPoint products nationwide. Tim Schaeffer, vice president of worldwide sales at Listen, says Herman has a “unique business model” that particularly appealed to the manufacturer.

“We are very excited to add Herman Pro AV to our distribution network,” says Schaeffer. “Unlike other distributors that emphasize the larger components of an install, Herman has its own niche, as they focus on what could be considered the ‘integrator installation essentials’ — the cable, connectivity and infrastructure products of an installation.”

“This is an immensely helpful way to serve installation professionals, and it also ties into their in-the-field labor arm, which is evolving and expanding the innovative ways in which they communicate with and service integrators,” Schaeffer continues.

“Our goal is to continue to identify product lines and value-added services that provide compelling value and benefit to the industry, while enabling our customers to rely on us for the products they need for their projects,” Wolf continues. “The Listen partnership is an important milestone in our growth and value strategy to become the premier value provider to the commercial AV industry.”
