Hear the Word Pro 6-Person Assisted Listening/Translation System breaks down hearing and language barriers!
Affordable for every church in America. Whether some of the people you are preaching to are hearing impaired or speak another language, the goal is still the same to make sure everyone can clearly hear and understand the Word of God. We are so excited to be able to offer a combo assisted listening and language translation system that is affordable for everyone.
- Works ok Review by Robert Bader
For the price it's hard to complain about this product. However in my application I have noticed that I can get a hum not only in the ear buds but in the house speakers also. Moving the transmitter around helped some but there is still a little bit of a hum. I have also noticed that the sound can cut out. It appears that this occurs if the transmitter is overdriven with the signal. I noticed it with the band playing. This is not an issue as most people should be able to hear the band without using this but we noticed it as we were experimenting with it as a personal monitor for the band members. That is not what this product is for so I am not saying there is a problem, just letting you know that it can be overdriven and will cut out.
As far as I can tell the people who have used these in our church have liked them. (Posted on 2/27/14)
- This system is fantastic Review by Jeff Wilson
There are a lot of translation systems out there to choose from. Most of them run $1,000 or more. This system met our needs and didn't break the budget in the process.
It was easy to set up and is clear. While it only comes in one frequency that was all we needed as we only translate into one language. We can plug any mic into it that has a 1/4 inch plug. It is easy to use and set up. Thanks Kingdom.com for this fantastic system. Our small church can now benefit from this technology without having to worry about the high cost. (Posted on 2/27/14)
- ALS-600 System Review by
The transmitter works great, the receivers work great except that they eat 9 volt batteries. We us them about 1 hour a week, turn the receivers off, when we turn them the next time the batteries are dead.
However, if we take the batteries out of the unit after each use, we are able to get multiple uses out of the battery.
I called Hamilton Electronics about the problem, they told me they would changed documents to reflect shorter battery life. (Posted on 2/27/14)
- Assistive Listening System Review by Ann
- The product arrived with the box slightly damaged. However we found it easy to connect to our system and several in our congregation are using it. They think it is great to once again hear the sermons. (Posted on 2/27/14)

- Cautions Review by Allen Glosson
This system will not work with rechargeable batteries. The 9V equivalent rechargeable batteries are either 8.4V (not enough juice to run the receivers) or 9.6V (too much juice, although that doesn't damage the receivers, they just won't work.) There are no true 9V rechargeable batteries due to the individual cells making up the battery only coming in 1.2V increments.
The headsets are mono and don't fit well into the ears. They are also mono. Using ear buds which actually fit the ear works better, but those are stereo, so the sound only appears in 1 ear. The receiver plugs are recessed, so mono-stereo converters won't fit (can't connect due to the recessed plug.)
Aside from those limitations, the system behaves as expected. Given that this is being used overseas, the 9V battery issue is the greater concern (where they are hard to come by and expensive as a result.) (Posted on 2/27/14)
- Practical, affordable, does its job. Review by IPUL
- After getting different quotes, and considering expensive options to supply the great need we had to translate our services, we decided to give this system a try. We were pleasantly surprised to see how easy it was to set it up, and how well it works! We dedicated a channel in our mixer for the transmitter, and assigned a microphone to the interpreter. The devices work really well, they are durable, and have a good range. We are very pleased with the system. We use rechargeable batteries, and keep a supply of ear-buds we get at the dollar store. This definitely was a convenient, affordable and effective solution to our translation needs. We highly recommend it. (Posted on 2/27/14)
- Good enough for what we paid. Review by BELMAN KRAUL-GARCIA
The product's quality is definitely not the best, however, this is understood based on the price you pay and the amount of devices you are getting. Most good quality assistive listening systems are over $700-$800 and you get fewer devices.
The shipping of this item was prompt, although the packaging could have been better (some parts of the carrying case were broken on arrival).
The devices themselves worked decently on our first time, although on one of our devices we had reception or shorting issues. We are still looking at those, and may contact customer service for a possible exchange. (Posted on 2/27/14)
