Introducing the Audable
Personal Amplifier by Ablenet
Audable, by AbleNet makes it easier to hear in everyday situations by reducing background noise and bringing only the sound you want to hear directly to your ear. Instead of simply increasing the volume or asking your companion to speak up (which may not be practical!), Audable isolates only the sounds you need, improving comprehension and connection to the world around you. Audable is perfect for one-on-one conversations, classroom situations, small group discussions, watching television or listening to music, or holding a conversation in a car

HOW PERSONAL AMPLIFIERS (Audable And Pocketalker) WORK
Hearing aids are for listening in generally low background noise situations like your living room, or in the dispensers office. The Pocketalker is a high quality amplifier that assists HEARING IN NOISY BACKGROUNDS such as restaurants, automobiles, and parties -- in other words, in the real world. And by using the 12-foot mic extension cord, you can use it for LISTENING TO THE TV. It helps hearing in two ways -- both vital to understanding speech:
1. It amplifies the higher (treble) frequencies and 2. It acts to pick up the sound closer to the source by placing the Pocketalker Mic closer, thus eliminating much of the background noise and providing a better speech-to-noise ratio (SNR) which is essential for understanding.
The laws of physics dictate that the most important factor in hearing clearly is the DISTANCE from the sound source to your ears. Therefore, when you reduce that distance by placing the Pocketalker PRO microphone nearer to the source, even a foot or two, you significantly increase your chances of actually understanding what is being said. Until then, just keep nodding and smiling when everyone else does.

SE-1 Economy Amplifier Takes The Worry Out Of Being Close -- And Not Understanding
The SuperEar is an amplifier with 50+ dB gain and a unidirectional microphone. You point it in the direction you want to hear. It operates on a single AAA battery (included) and has a volume control. It is sold primarily for bird watching and similar activities, but we have found it to be excellent as an economical personal amplifier for understanding conversation in noisy backgrounds. Some distributors of this device make the claim that it picks up sounds from 100 yards away -- sure, if it's a thermonuculear explosion! But we have found that it works excellently in cars, restaurants, and other places with background noise and comes at an a very affordable price. The package includes a headset or single flexible tip earbud (pictured). that fits easily into the ear. Weight 3 oz. One year warranty.
GT Price: $36.99 ($6 S&H)
Hold It! Before you order the SE-1 above, we have to tell you about an accidental discovery we made that DOUBLES the sound when used with the SuperEar! It's called a Button Receiver,. Even with my severe loss, I can't move the volume control all the way up before it becomes too loud! And the whole thing is still less than 1/30th the cost of a $2500 hearing aid!...... Joe Marin
