This is the digital earpiece that amplifies and clarifies voices. An advanced microchip amplifies human speech frequencies above background noise so that spoken words are clearly audible. Unlike lesser analog models that merely make all sounds louder, this superior digital earpiece amplifies voice pitch so words are easier to discern. The rechargeable device eliminates the need to repeatedly purchase costly replacement batteries and operates for up to 10 hours after a 12-hour charge. The amplifier has eight adjustable volume levels and recharges in the included carry case that's powered by the included AC adapter or two AAA batteries (included). Includes one amplifier (additional amplifier available below) and four different sized silicone caps to accommodate all ear sizes. 1/2" L x 1/2" W x 1" H. (1/10 oz.)

Seems to be a good product. Like not having to buy batteries but wish the charge lasted a little longer. I can't seem to get the hang of adjusting the volume while in my ear and I manage to move the button while putting it in. But it works good and costs a LOT less than the ones we got before. They also didn't last long. Hoping these do but if not at least it didn't cost thousands of dollars.

This device did improve my father's hearing, thank God! But, I suggest the directions be written in easy to read print and that the volume controls be more clearly marked. The very people who need this device are likely to have some trouble reading small print and dealing with technology.Also the charge does not last very long at all. So maintenance is also hard for the very people who need this item the most.

Very good performance for the price, no batteries to deal with..Does not filter out background noise from voice, as claimed in the catalog description (has to be removed in crowd situations.).Maybe a disclaimer to indicate that the product may not work well for older seniors..
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Lac Des Arcs, Alberta
As a nurse, I have to remove the amplifier when using a stethoscope. But I keep a padded container in my pocket and it's easy to reinsert after an examination.
An excellent product!
from Dallas, TX
I have been pleasantly surprised by the quality and efficacy of the product when compared to the relatively low price. It functions just as well as a tailored hearing aid that I once paid $2,000 for. The frequency settings are perfect for my situation and it is very easy to keep clean. The only improvements I could recommend are with the volume control, particularly its visibility and tendency to drift from its set point. Use in a noisy situation - such as a busy restaurant - is still problematic but that is also the case with more expensive aids. Overall, this was an excellent purchase and would make it again in a heartbeat.

voice clarifying amp a disappointment
from Leland, NC
the price was right..the size of the unit was fine..the controls of coarse were very small but were also very hard to adjust....it seemed that the unit was either too low or extremely high..with a great deal of background noise...I was disappointed as I really thought I had found a piece of equipment that would be right for me...I had previously purchased a pair of digital hearing aids which turned out to be similar to this product...sorry I was disappointed and returned the product last week
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Los Gatos, CA
Product performs well, is easy to care for, has a good battery. Volume control is difficult to read and hard to adjust. Needs longer lasting battery.

The product had a variety of earpieces, which was a plus, to fit any ear. It was well-made and packaged well. It did not amplify well enough for my grandmother to make use of it. mark volume control clearer, easier to adjust.
I would buy this product again
from mendocino county, ca
It is fine, especially for the price, but it should last longer than 6-8 hours between charges.
