I've only had this a few days but I find that I can hear it a little better. It has different modes to use for different events. I do find clarity a little hard to come by. I'm also having trouble with the sound bar syncing with the tv. You see the actors talking but the sound is a little disconnected. I have to be honest and say I'm a little disappointed for the price I paid. I expected better. I'm still trying different settings to see if I can get better sound out of it.
