Pioneer Co is selling a new wireless speaker, the Kai-Tele-kun VMS-700-K, which sends sound waves from the TV directly to the speaker for a distance of up to 30 meters.
Pioneer says the new speaker is aimed at primarily elder citizens, who have the tendency to raise the volume of the TV due to age related hearing problems. But with Kai-Tele-kun, they can leave the speaker next to them and be able to listen to the TV without raising the volume.
The product is also suitable for those who stay up late at night and housewives who want to listen to the TV while cooking.
Kai-Tele-kun costs approximately 20,000 yen. Sales start in mid-May.© Japan Today
