What Is Clear Voice?

Never say, “What’d they say?” again.

Have you ever found yourself leaning toward the TV straining to hear what’s happening during your game? Sometimes dialogue in movies and commentary in newscasts or sporting events can be difficult to understand.

Why is that? It’s because sound effects and background noise can compete with the sound of human voices.

Clear Voice to the rescue! This feature, found in many Yamaha sound bars, brings dialogue and narration to the forefront – making voices easier to hear and understand. Or in nerd-speak, “The vocal frequency range and its harmonics are emphasized for greater intelligibility while remaining frequency components are attenuated.”

So turn on Clear Voice, and when they say:

“This team’s chances of winning are slim.”

You won’t hear:

“Team advances with convincing win.”
