Q: I love our 60-inch plasma smart TV, but my husband has trouble hearing it. It isn't a matter of loudness as much as his being able to hear clearly. What would you recommend?

- Monika Ragland, Safford, Ariz.

A: Digital TVs allow you to change the relative loudness of high and low sound frequencies, which may make the TV more audible for your husband. Alternatively, there are special earphones for digital TVs that allow the user to make sound adjustments without altering what other people in the room hear.
