The Voice Clarifying Over Ear Amplifier
This is the over-ear digital earpiece that amplifies and clarifies voices. Its advanced microchip detects incoming sound levels and provides continuous volume regulation while its noise-free setting filters out low-frequency background interference, making spoken words clearly audible, features only available in this Hammacher Schlemmer model. A second setting disables the filter, ideal for amplification when in nature or in an otherwise quiet environment. With a microphone that picks up sounds within a frequency range from 1,200"1,600Hz, the amplifier provides optimal sound levels to a maximum 25dB gain, ideal for meetings, television, or auditoriums.
Its rechargeable battery provides up to 12 hours of operation from a seven-hour charge using the included carrying case, which includes one AA battery; also recharges in five hours via the included AC adapter. Includes three differently sized silicone caps to accommodate all ear canals.
1-1/2"L x 1/2"W x 3/4"H; (1/4 oz.)
My point of comparison is a Miracle Ear over the ear hearing aid. This is as it is cleverly advertised...a "sound amplifier". The background noise is quite loud along with all other relevant sound. A bit bulky (reminiscent of 1980's devices) compared to the $2500 Miracle Ear too. You get what you pay for!
